Hello gentlemen,

Should I let the waist out a bit on this jacket? Thanks. Excuse the button-down collar - just threw it on for the photo.

Honestly a picture from further away would help determine whethere it needs it in relation to the overall outfit.

It looks like it's a matter of taste, it doesn't look too bad.

Looks like it's pulling a little but I agree, a pic from further away would make life easier in terms of judging this.

Also, fill your pockets with whatever you normally carry, to be sure of a realistic fit.

Before you go and get it altered, post better fit pictures. Two closeup of the waist is useless for critique purposes.

whether the jacket is too tight or not requires a side view also to see how the back and vents lay.

Post some of these pictures, and also post straigh-on shots from afar.

But as has been said, more pics would help.


Because of the pulling?

The collar is standing off the neck. Get that fixed above all else.

Yes, wearing it around the house, I'm noticing that the lapels are starting to buckle, as well. It's too small. Think I'll return this baby. Thanks all.
