Hey guys,

I would really appreciate any feedback on how the parka fits me. I feel like it should fit more snug in the bottom and around my hips, what do you think?

In the pictures I am actually showing the space room there is before zipping the parka. If the parka is too big, what are the chances of a tailor making it fit better? I am very impressed with the quality, especially given its price of 600 EUR.

I’d want the sleeves to be longer. Aside from that it looks right to me.

It looks good to me. A parka is meant to have a larger volume -- it is not meant to be snug.
Thank you for your feedback. I guess I just got used to wear SuitSupply and tight-fitting running wear..
I think it's perfect. This is such a great coat, will last a lifetime. I'm looking at their Mountain Parka but you may have just changed my mind.
And yes, a good tailor can make anything fit better.
Yeah, the quality is outstanding, and it's really a bargain. I guess Ceccarelli isn't as known yet and not as mainstream. You don't really find their products in the usual stores where Woolrich/CG/etc is being sold.
I just checked their Mountain Parka, and it seems like a decent option as well. However, I prefer to have the extra pockets of the Alaska Parka :)

Yeah, I was thinking about the sleeves as well. Do you think I could even size up or will the parka then be too huge overall?

I wouldn’t size up. I think the sleeves aren’t overly short. At least they cover your wrists. In weather cold enough to be wearing that coat, wouldn’t you also usually be wearing gloves?
