Maybe so. But I need to keep the shoulder width at max 17" so ... finding a <17" with a 20" p2p is rare. Here's the FCL Roberts zipped up and pockets also zipped closed (they were open in the above compilation making the waist look wider than it is).

For reference, I'm currently wearing a size 38 Roberts but I'm 5'10" and 158 lbs.
No wonder the seam tore apart. You're wearing two sizes too small. I'm about 18lbs lighter than you and that size is slim even on me. It is impressive that you managed to even zip it up, but I would strongly advise you not to as I fear you're going to end up busting the zippers as well.

I disagree. I can literally fit a tennis ball under the chest on my chest when zipped up.

I get it that you like slim stuff. But "loose and flowy" is a bit of a stretch (no pun intended).
Ok, you're right. Tried it on again and it's a perfect fit on the body. Differences being RL is lambskin, FCL is horsehide.

Well, I mean, I used a tennis ball because isn't the standard for when wearing a suit jacket that you can just fit a fist under the lapel to size it?

Well, in this case, I can fit a tennis ball. So there is no pressure on the zipper without it.

That shit looks tight as hell though, I think I could probably fit a two to three tennis balls in my FCL Edward. The shoulder and chest area look especially tight
