Wait, what size is this pictured? I agree the body length is too long and too rectangular at this size. The arms and top half look good though.
size 50 (us38), I wear it that way and thats the way rick body is on all his jackets, you can buy much tighter fitting but should look like so

you've got some foo level cognitive dissonance though
I am capable of fantastic heights of cognitive dissonance when it comes to clothes and my appearance, and that has everything do with a problematic upbringing, a parent who placed too high a value on status and material possessions, a sense of not being in control of my life and having learned as a coping mechanism the acquisition of the garments I resultantly fetishized, and, finally, the fact that my ideal is never met, the hole not filled, the base experience not processed and resolved (although I am working toward this).

While I would not attribute the exact same biography and motivation to others, I would argue that many on this forum have demonstrated similar cognitive dissonance. And it is from this vantage of identification that I am willing to engage in a certain degree of teasing.

Folks the FCL Robert’s fits like a RO intarsia. Notice in the pics the long tube like body but it does slim down. I took that in a 50 (us38) if I took it in a 48 i would rip the seams. Same issue as @Understatesman but I chose to size up.

I’ve had jackets (TOJ moto) and tried on ones (ma+ biker) where I had to breath in to zip up. I learned that it’s too annoying and uncomfortable, better a little loose than overly constricting always.



Can I just tell you I love how you address your posts.

^ Thanks for the feedback. I feel like this jacket regardless of who wears it doesn't look very good zipped up. The tube body is just not flattering, on top of the longer-than-ideal length of it.

Uploading a video of my Polo with 18" shoulders. Totally different drape because of the lambskin. But you can see the shoulders are not flattering, imho.

Also too tight. Sorry.
