Note that the Forestiere's fit at least two sizes large compared to a tailored jacket.

As I recall, the M&H size range does not include Small.

They grow 'em big in Florida.

Blast this is a tough one to consider. I tried the smallest sized Forestiere they had available at Arnys and I still felt I was swimming in it. It is a very loose and baggy fit. But the price for something so cool and distinct is hard to beat.

I went with the chestnut sight unseen and I'm assuming that it has more of a reddish tone than the tan. I might have to get the tan, too.

Yeah, that's what I figured, thanks.

What is the smallest size they have at the store? I will be in Paris next year, and I do not want to be dissapointed if I get there and they don't have a 38. I guess I could just call the store.

I don't remember if it was a US 38 or 40 equivalent. But I am about a US 42 typically and it wears large.

I am really digging the cotton drill version for an alternative to the shirt-coats I have seen recently.

I wonder what chestnut looks like.

Thanks! I have a 39 chest, so depending on the suit maker, I am a 38 or 40 US. I have a 38 in the Beaufort and it has a loose fit, but that is what I like about it.

Hi guys, thanks for the interest. The 'Gilet' corduroy vest comes in the same chestnut color as the 'Forestierre'. So, if you go to Clearance/Vests on our website you will see the color. Or you can try this link to the Zoom image. You will note that the chestnut forestierre is just visible in the edge of the picture. (A sample of the chestnut color should be up on the Forestierre product page. I will have that fixed).

Thanks,
