    What do you guys think? I'm not totally sure i like it, but since returning it will be hard (no car and no time w/ school, really), I think I will stick with it. [​IMG]

    Its a size and a half too big and the sleeves are too long. Does look warm however, function > form.

    I considered getting a Medium, but the Large is bigger in the shoulders, which I need.

    Its a problem I run into quite often, not many brands accommodate the V shape upperbody well.

    Exactly. Tshirts don't work well either. I have a 43" chest and a 29" waist.

    Jesus, I thought I had problems finding clothes with an 8-10" drop. [​IMG]

    I also have problems in the shoulders/upper back. My shoulders aren't "wide", but my entire upper back is thick along w/ the rear shoulders. it's a bitch.

    What brand is it? I saw some similar jackets at the local H&M and I think in the G-star store.
    I think it would look pretty cool on you with some baggier jeans.

    Since the shoulders fit right, sizing down won't do any good. To get this to fit better you could get the sleeves shortened and the body taken in.

    The pockets limit the slimming. So might the material.

    nothin wrong with the fit of that jacket. u are a man afterall right? wearing a winter jacket fitted like a girl does looks really stupid. Plus u need room underneath for layers.

    and yeah i actually saw that at H&M. I liked it but i didnt want a hooded jacket.

    Not sure what being a man has to do with wearing a jacket that fits?

    I think he's trying to say men are like women, but different shapes. A woman's jacket in the winter is too tight for manshape?

    The jacket looks like it should do you fine for a winter. What it may lack in warmth, it makes up for layerability. And you can get away without gloves with sleeves that length. You'll live. It looks decent, if not unremarkable, but some cite invisibility a virtue, yeah???
