Should I or shouldn't I buy... (clothing item)?

Hello dear friends. I am new to the forum and need your advisement.

I have recently ordered Valstar Milano raincoat and am unsure of size. I am usually size 52 (or 42 in US sizing) but ordered 54 since I have already Valstarino jacket in 54 because fit is quite slim.
Milano fit is OK, but the body fairly wide (especially the waist). I think this is more mac style jacket which is meant to be shorter and slimmer rather than trench coat style which should be looser. Please tell me what you think. Should I buy instead size 52? It is no trouble to exchange
View from side seems quite a lot of volume

It’s fine in an oversized way, but sounds like you want something slightly more fitted. The sleeves and shoulders look a touch big, so a size down would probably fit better.

I like the volume, but wish it was longer. Sizing up probably won't give you the length you need. IMO, that coat would look better if it came down to the knee or just above it.

Please help me keep myself from making a mistake. The enchantment of this delicious light purple bandana patchwork has completely clouded my mind.

@hoodog I may be mistaken but don't you already have a bandanna kakashi? If you don't I'd get the purple/navy one so it won't be as similar to the jacket you have

too much bandana... Feels like something you will get tired of in a year? But perhaps not.
