My day has finally come.

I sized up to a 42 and wouldn't have it any other way. I am 5'9" and they come just past my knee and that feels like a good length in balance to the fullness. Collars stand up well, didn't test the throat latch as I've never used one before and likely won't. Maybe just unbutton it and let it hang for some sprezz haha. Sleeves could be a touch longer to make sure shirts don't poke out, it's borderline acceptable for outerwear but I have pretty long arms. I tried it with a shirt/sweater/cord jacket to make sure it could handle a worst case scenario layering thickness and it's snug but works (no pics of that layering, just shirt/sweater in these pics)

I think the only concern fit wise would be if you have really broad shoulders, you might struggle. It's acceptable in the size up but even then could be a touch roomier there. Maybe the armhole could be a tad larger but that's a fine line, you go too big and the mobility suffers.

Overall I am quite pleased and honestly I am going to keep both I think. Use the light one casually (will be so good with a pair of denim and sweatshirt) and the grey when dressed up a bit.

How heavy and warm would you say they run? As a fellow Canadian, I'm looking for something that will hold up to the impending winter temps.

they seem pretty warm to me, should be fine if you layer up. Grey is slightly heavier. I think the light color is like 580gsm and the grey is 630.

MTO jacket came in - needs a few tweaks but that's on me not S&M.

Not a fit pic but this is the navy wool/cash herringbone if anyone was interested in it. It's almost a blue-grey IRL rather than a navy, tho this pic it looks grey. I actually really dig it.

Finally bit on the peacoat thanks to the code.

Am I tripping or did I see a charcoal VBC flannel sport coat MTM option before that’s not there anymore?

Did you just do some minor tweaks to the measurements off the standard sizing? What went wrong? I'm curious to know as I'm anxiously waiting for my MTO.

Really dig the grey, but I'm also the boring type haha.
Can i ask what your regular suit size is? All the product descriptions for S&M Coats say to take your normal suit size as they are already sized to fit a blazer/suit underneath but the few responses I've seen, everyone has been sizing up.
Did you size up as well? I'm looking to purchase my first S&M wool/cashmere overcoat in charcoal gray

I’m a 40R contemporary in the sportcoats and sized up to a 42 in these.

Yep minor tweaks. I based the waist off a jacket that was a bit too tight and I forgot I had it taken in a bit. So when I went to make the waist larger on the MTO, I didn't account for that original taking in. My fault.
