    Haha, I'm excited for the green tweed jacket but at least on my phone all the pictures show it in a different shade.

    My green tweed was delivered today. Sorry for the crappy mirror selfie, it was the closest I could get to natural light during nighttime.

    The close-up shot is a bit overexposed and blurry, unfortunately. In addition to the reddish-brown threads visible in the shot, there are dark blue/purple threads and light yellow-green threads against the dark green base. The latter two fade away from any normal distance away, and the overall effect is a mottled forest green with some brown undertones.

    This is the best sport coat of the season.

    I'm having some issues with sizing my sportcoat. All my suits up to this point have been hand me downs that have never really fit well, and I'm not sure if something that actually fits me feels almost tight because I'm not used to it or because it's too small. Suitsupply sized me for a 36S so I ordered that for S&M (they initially insisted 34 which was ridiculously small), and I also was advised by the tailor at SS to get the 36S slim from S&M. I think the 36S contemporary may be too short though. It almost looks okay to me, but I think it's too short and may be slightly too small. My usual tailor also pointed out that the top button should be closer to my belly button (button is currently 3" above). My chest measures as 36 1/2" and my shoulders about 17". This leads me to think I may be a 38R - slim. I'm 5'-8" and 135lbs. I'm most concerned about my shoulders. I really can't tell if the additional space in the shoulders will be good or not on 38. I've emailed S&M for advice, but they haven't replied to me yet.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    It does appear that the 36S is too short. There looks to be some pulling at the button. That may be because it hits too high up your torso (and the S&M jackets are not intended to have a high button stance). I think that a 36R may be the next size to try, unless you feel that movement in your shoulders is too restricted. You did not include any pictures of your back, so we cannot tell if there is any pulling. What did your tailor say about the fit in the shoulders?

    Looks fine other than the length - try a 36R

    SB topcoat came in. If you're looking to put it over a suit coat, I'd recommend sizing up. I found it fits pretty close through the shoulder and waist as my SCs.

    Yikes. Can anyone comment on whether this also applies to the DB overcoat? A topcoat should not fit as close as a blazer or suit jacket in a given size.

    Cooling down a bit in Houston, so I’m dressing like it’s 2017:
