Thanks. Definitely helps with my decision. I’m not in to tight fitting either but I’m on the upper end of the range when it comes to my size.Well, dog gone. It’s the exact same one I’m after. I wasn’t certain we were talking about the exact same one or even a different colorway. Love it.
Here is what I know. I have the previous year’s version that I got after I passed on this one at the retail price. I am a solid XL. Mine is in XL. Fits great. I did not size up. I can wear a flannel under it or a dress shirt. It’s a great mid-fall/early winter jacket in Chicago. It is not made to be a winter coat and I wouldn’t try to do that with it. But, being made of wool, it is more Jac than shirt as opposed to my cotton ones that are more shirt than Jac. It is also nice thick wool. I really love the piece and have gotten a few compliments on it.
I guess I can’t speak enough to your sizing. I can only tell you I didn’t size up and I’m happy with that choice. I do not wear tight fitting clothes if I can help it and I’m very happy with this fit. If you really want to layer underneath, maybe size up. But, it is designed to have at most a flannel under it and to be comfortable down to about freezing, give or take. It is definitely a “in the 40’s” coat.
I hope my rambling helps. Let me know if you have any other questions or want me to draw comparisons to other pieces.
Looking at the chart again I see it’s body size measurements and since I don’t expect this to be tailored I suspect I should be fine!
