Sorry, slow reply.
Decently tight to begin with, yes. Wide foot beware.
After breaking in they’re much better. I’m a 10D brannock and took a 10 in these. A 10.5 would have been a bit better width wise but would have been a tad too long.

edit: this is referring to Jumper boots in case anyone is searching through this thread in the future.
I went with a half size up with a 7.5D. I guess we will see how they fit after they arrive monday.

Looks like the Balmacaans are selling like hot cakes within the first couple hours of being up, good for Rick and for me because the longer my size is in stock the longer it tempts me 😂
Same.

I hope Rick comes out with E width in the future. A lot of us don’t think we are an E width, but actually are, or are on the border of D/E like me. Bunions aren’t fun lmao

Got the large parka. I certainly prefer the fit vs the medium that my wife is keeping for herself.

Thanks for following up! I see you have a furry friend (in the background). Does the fabric on the coat seem to attract fur? Looking for something that I won't have to lint roll every time I wear it...

Unless they changed the fabric on this years to better repel fur, whenever I took the coat out of the closet the fur from the fur trim would be all over the coat along with animal hair from around the house. With it being navy also, didn’t help because you could see it all 😅

I’m crossing my fingers the black pair I ordered fit. Figured it was time to stop buying brown boots.

I'm not sure that the Neo cut will actually fit me, but that herringbone pushes all the right buttons. Might as well order it and give it a try.

This is a much more elegant winter alternative than the db coat. Basically car coats are much more flexible than other designs by being more streamlined and cleaner. Plus you can style it with a belt or not. If this is cashmere blend I'd rock it.
I said the same thing—really wish it had the same luxe fabric as the overcoats, but it appears not to. Still a great coat. I also wouldn’t call this a “car coat”—it’s a balmacaan. I think car coats are shorter-length overcoats. This balmacaan has a classic knee length, which is one of its best features.

I much prefer single breasted to double breasted, unless it is a peacoat. Next is for S&M to re-make the past duffel coats

Please do and post photos, I don’t need more convincing, but I kind of do

Did you get a slim by chance? They have very slight higher armholes. Or is your chest not a 40?

As for the parka, I got one from last year and it fits and feels great would recommend. I think it was @Burzan that had a navy one from this season, so he can comment on the latest iteration
I got the contemporary. My chest measures 40 exact. I'm new to dressing nice like this tho so maybe I should have sized up? I'm guessing sizing down would have been worse and sizing up would have ruined the fit on everything else. The lines and length look great and the shoulders seem to be in the right place. It's a great fit otherwise.

The bomber looks like it's basically the parka but shorter so that's great. Did you size up or take your normal S&M blazer size?
