Hii

I posted on MFA reddit, but they suggesed I ask on Style forum. I am just starting to build my ward-drobe and had a very ****** ward-drobe before. Now that I am gradually improving my ward-robe I remembered I had a couple of faux leather jackets and a duffle jacket I wear regularly. I know the advice is to save up and buy real leather jackets, but I already have these. So I am thinking maybe there might be some merit in fixing and getting these fitted. I particularly like the duffle coat.

I wonder what you guys think of these fits. What and how should I get these fitted? Please let me know if you need any additional pics.

I like the dufflecoat the most, and wear it a lot, so am thinking of getting that fitted first.

How do these fits look and what needs to be changed?

I'd take in some of the length on that selfie stick first. Maybe trade up for a little girth.

For real though it's gonna cost you as much to get those jackets fixed as it would be to buy something new that fits from the start.

Thanks for replying, Brian.

Yeah..you are probably right on the faux jackets.

The dufffle coat is a 300$ one, so I am hoping its would be worth getting fitted.

I am sure half of that is a joke...but couldnt understand what you meant by "I'd take in some of the length on that selfie stick first. Maybe trade up for a little girth."

Could you explain a bit in "newbie" language? :)
