Good evening guys, I received my new (to me) Oxxford overcoat this weekend from B&S through Raoul Duke (who is a phenomenal seller). I feel the fit in shoulders, chest, and sleeve length is spot on. However I think there needs to be some serious waist suppression (especially near side pocket area), a slight shortening of coat length, and I'm wondering what else you guys could recommend. I'm a 40R, 34 waist, fairly athletic build. I think the worst part of the fit is the way the hip region looks so large. Also I'm wondering of the sleeves could use perhaps a slight thinning? I'm planning on taking the coat to my tailor tomorrow to be altered so all comments and suggestions are very much appreciated. On to the pics: First set of pics shows coat over just a t-shirt Unbuttoned-These pics show coat over t-shirt and suit jacketThanks for your time guys, look forward to the responses. Big thanks to Raoul Duke again for such a great coat. Cheers, S.
