    We're chuckling because you sized down so the shoulders obviously don't fit. Good job.

    I think you're a little confused. This is a M, so I definitely didn't size down. I would have been swimming in a L. Here are some better pictures. Look at where the shoulder seam sits relative to my upper arm. If you think the shoulders don't fit, you may be wearing your own stuff a size or 2 large.

    It looks great; fits perfectly, imo. Don't mind Arethusa, he has some sort of weird shoulder fetish [​IMG]

    Coat looks great, gnatty.

    Agreed, that looks good. And I would consider consider that slim - that's just not what mine looks like. I have a 37-38 in chest and 29 in waist so there isn't enough shape to the body of the coat to give it a slim look on me.

    In the end, if you're buying OTR, you pretty much have to do the best you can. If it doesn't look exactly right, I'm sure most of us would forgive you.

    Don't get obsessed with how a coat fits. Just do the best you can. If it's stylish and you wear it good no one will notice if it's a tad baggy on you.

    People on SF get way to obsessed with "fit" period, but that's just my opinion. Not everything you wear has to look like it was painted on your body.

    YES! Hallelujah, somebody else sees this too. In fact, it often looks just plain wrong when it's painted on.

    I agree with you guys to a certain extent.
    If a jacket looks too baggy you look terrible.
    However if you buy a J.Crew jacket in your correct size you will look fine.

    But in general there's a difference between too baggy and not painted on.

    Speaking of fit obsession last time I went to J Crew almost every shirt I tried on was way too long. I'm 5'9". Oh well, it's not like J Crew has any shirts with crazy patterns that are exclusive to them.

    Hell, I'd call that slim. My God, what is slim to you guys? So tight that the buttons pop off?!

    Sums up my thoughts on this forum in a nutshell.

    Coat looks great, gnatty.

    Thanks guys..

    A reasonably skilled tailor can always give the body some shape. I have a grey Michael Kors peacoat from a couple of winters ago that was very boxy, and my tailor did a fine job giving it a bit of shape.

    +1

    There is a very large difference between a poor fit and a good fit, but marginally less so between a good fit and perfect fit.
