    Hello friends, I've recently bought a trench coat from Indochino. I've heard lots of bad and good comments about the brand, but they had a sale recently and I jumped at it.

    I'm about 5'3" and small built. Just imagine a tiny Asian guy.

    I'm thinking of going to the tailor's to get a better fit around the waist and hips. But I have no idea how a trench coat should fit, and would really appreciate any comments.

    Here are the photos. (Excursionist Trench Coat, Tan)

    I'm just wearing a thin sweater underneath. I do not have a suit with me because I'm not in my home country.

    How much did you score this piece for IIMA?

    Oh, I paid $199 USD for it, which seems like a reasonable price even for an off-the-shelf coat.

    It fits fine. It's not going to turn heads for a good reason or for a bad reason. It's just fine.

    Thank you for all your comments!

    It's my first time living in a place that has winter. Been wearing it the last few days, and the coat has been really nice at keeping the wind out and warmth in!
