Good jacket, but too big for you. Flip it on B&S.

EDIT: not sure about the shoulders... If they fit well then it may be altered. Seems they are too big, although it's hard to tell.

People are interested in brands not quality, or at least 95% are. Although it's an awesome jacket. Guys, what are the rules regarding the stomach? It seems that jackets are either too big around the stomach or pull in the back on me.

Definitely needs alterations work to make it wearable, back is messy, waist needs to be nipped in, upper sleeves are too baggy, sleeves are too long by at least an inch. Most of that's probably improveable if you want to spend the money.

Sleeves, back, waist. You are looking at 100-200 dollars in alterations, depending on the tailor.

The coat is definitely too long and looks to be big in the shoulders. I think you may be out of luck on this one as I don't think jacket length is easy to correct.

Shoulders/chest look to big, which generally is not worth the $$ to alter. If it was a Attolini and perfect then perhaps, but probably not worth it on this.

Try to trade/sell it for your size. The waist and sleeves are relatively easy/inexpensive adjustments.

If you really like the jacket, get the waist taken in and the sleeves shortened. It probably still won't be SF-approved (the back is a little jacked and the shoulders are probably too big, and it is definitely on the long side), but it will most likely be wearable.
