I just got a J. Crew jacket back after about three trips to the tailor. It's a three-button Ludlow that I think looks pretty damn good on me ... that is, once I chopped an inch off the bottom and about half an inch off the sleeves. I'm of pretty average height - a little over 5'9". And if I weren't so skinny, I'd be covered - J.Crew stocks both 38S and 40S. So why is it that us skinny guys are stuck having to do major surgery on a jacket when those with just a bit broader shoulders are covered? I suspect I'm not alone. Anybody else have this problem with J.Crew's sizing? Or know of a way to elongate your torso by about an inch? Let me know.
