Is this sports coat too tight around the waist?

    I'm sorry if the picture isn't any better....I don't have a way to time a picture or somebody to take a picture for me. Just by looking at this, does anyone think this is a tight fit? It's a 35S.





    Thank you.

    From the pic and angle it doesn't appear to be but it does look like the front is pulling a bit. Does it feel tight?

    When I'm standing and hold a drink, it doesn't feel tight. When I'm reaching my arms out for something, it pulls on the button a bit.

    Thanks. The reason I ask is I have a Men's Wearhouse gift card thank for Christmas, and I wish to take advantage of their BOGO deal. I want solid black and gray sports coats, but the local store doesn't have great options for gray. So, I'm turning to their online store.

    Ok, so I took some better pictures. The first set of photos (4) are from a 35S sports coat:

    The second set of photos (4) are from a 36S cashmere blazer.

    Which one looks better? I would use these sports coats for a more casual night out (nice pair of jeans + button up), and not with dress slacks and business wear.

    Thank you in advance.

    You'd get more answers if the photos were inline and people didn't have to click on each one.

    The 35S fits better, but it must cover the rear end and the pictures don't indicate if it does.

    Get ready for people to start saying the jeans are a bigger problem.

    Thank you, and they both cover the rear.

    The jeans are crap. Cheap stuff I got from Kohls. I would never actually wear them with a coat.

    ...no, it's not. It may be too loose actually.
