    I'm about Derek's height/weight 5'10" and 145 lbs, 37" chest and I have a denim in size 2 and a katsuragi cotton one in size 1 I proxied from Japan. The size 1 borders on being on the shorter sleeve length of what I would want. The chest is perhaps a touch smaller (in such a trivial way for me that I couldn't even say for sure based on how it feels), but If I could do it again I'd get a size 2. I just can't find one in that size in the same color, and the 1 still works overall. It's not a precise science by any means.

    At 5'8" 130 lbs I would go with a 1, though, and certainly not a size 0. A 2 might work also, but at least in my size 2 denim ring coat the sleeve cuffs already have an abundance of length on my longer arms.

    I'm 5"4-5"5, with a 37 inch chest. I have a Melton wool Ring Coat and took it in size 1.

    Unless you find a second hand one, buying direct from Japan is the cheapest way to get one. I got mine at a small discount by buying gift certificates at Unionmade during Christmas, where you save 20% off on the certificate but can use it on any full priced item. (Or do they give you 20% extra on what you paid? It's either or.)

    I'd take @dieworkwear's suggestion and buy one from a place that accepts returns, though. I took a chance on sizing down from my usual Kapital size and it was fine because of the Fiat's bagginess.

    katsuragi cotton is rather heavy, mid or lightweight fabric? good for what kind of weather?
