i recently tried on some sport coats @ banana republic to see how they fit. the one that fit me best was a 32R. the only problem i had with the fit was the sleeves. they were to baggy looking for my taste. i tried on a sport coat @ j crew size S and it seemed to fit me perfect. i'm telling you all this info in hopes that i can have the confidence to buy a sport coat in a place other than j crew even though they have okay sport coats. can you take one to a tailor to have them slim down the sleeves? thanks

Sleeve slimming is limited to the area from the wrist to about the elbow. Anything more and you'll have to shop elsewhere.

Sleeves can be tapered towards the wrist. The armhole, however, cannot be reduced, so the closer to the shoulder, the less slimming is possible.

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
