    Hi everyone. I have a cashmere Loro Piana Brooks Brothers Overcoat that I believe is one size too small. It's a 40 and I'm a 42 suit now. I'm going to try it on tonight.

    2 Questions:

    1) Can it be let out?

    2) Can I realistically lose weight in my shoulders, back, and chest? I've gained maybe 15 lbs. I'm 5'9", 185 lbs.

    Thank you.

    Depending on the type of coat, it can be let out.
    I have an old coat, but not worn much since I moved to CA.
    It is a Balmacaan and was successfully let out from 42 to around 44.

    As for weight loss, I lost about 12 lbs. My chest and shoulders are
    the same size. My midsection is smaller.
