Mine is a medium, I'm 6' 170 pounds and it fits slim just the way I like it. So for me, very TTS.
In a Euro sized jacket I normally take a 48/50 depending...
So it arrived about 11 hours ago! Ridiculous lead time! Anyway, very happy with the fit of the 46! Also got the 'faded olive' just to try on as it is all one of my favourite shops (with quick delivery! ) had in stock and for £100 less than the black. I was convinced I was sending back and getting a 48 in black but not so sure now! I like how dark the olive is, almost passes for black anyway but perhaps with a bit less shine which I actually like. Thoughts? Cheers.

Oh and apologies for the outfit! It is unusually hot in Scotland, our houses aren't built for 30 odd degrees so singlets and football (soccer) shorts when lounging around is keeping me alive! 🤣

Looks great, I was debating colors too before going for black.
And don't worry, Derek told me not to buy mine too, but I love it.
He's not wrong often, so he was due...

Thanks mate, he might have a point, perhaps there is better but for £150 I doubt I'll find it any time soon! And I absolutely love the feel of this thing.
That Belstaff jacket looks great on you. Definite keeper.
Thanks mate, appreciate it!

Ordered a pair of shoes, in a color I typically would never consider, to check out sizing (with free returns, and this was the only color available).

However, I sort of like them. Odd white/gray/blue hue. I always wear black shoes/boots, so bit outside of my comfort zone. Would wear with black and gray, perhaps blue denim. Return/keep?

I really like these tbh. Very complementary to what you usually wear.

What are they?

I can see those going well with the things you normally talk about. That said, I bought a pair of Margiela side-zips once in that color and found the color was so specific that I rarely wear them. They're basically something that I can only wear with certain pants, certain jackets, etc. Not that everything has to be super versatile, but maybe something to consider.
