Hallo together,
I just bought that pea coat from Ted Baker. Please tell me if I should size one more size or if I should just take some adjustments at the Tailor.
If yes, i will definitily shorten the arms.
I would appreciate every criticism.
Dont hesitate to be rude.

Best regards,
Joe

I meant, if I should size one more down...
I think the shoulders fit quite nice.
Sorry for my bad english.

Best regards, Joe

Your English is fine, but the picture is terrible. We need better pictures to be helpful.

It’s not bad at all. I assume you’re only wearing a T-shirt under it at the moment? Maybe you could try one size down for comparison. And try both sizes while wearing what you plan to wear under it anyway to get an even better idea.

I really wouldn't size down. It looks fine like that and if you end up wearing a sweater or something bulkier and you're sized down it will look too tight.
