I saw this and am tempted. I can’t keep track of the fit conversation around these. If I’m tall and slim and wear a 40 slim jacket in S&M would I order an M or L?

I wear a 36R Slim and took an XS and it fits me nice and trim with a bit of moving room due to being a sweatshirt. I would say go L unless you want a trimmer fit. Others can hop on this discussion

How are you planning on pairing it, if you don't mind me asking? I'm liking it on its own, but I'm having a hard time imagining how to pair it trouser wise. Grey and brown trousers?

EDIT: maybe beige as well? Maybe I should just order it?
Yeah I am thinking cream or beige colored trousers. I guess just about any light color should work.
I have a similar sport coat, it is very versatile, mid grey, light grey, beige, cream, medium brown, khaki. Darker brown? Maybe...

I’ve even paired it with olive chinos (to some success:oops:)

Thank you so much for the pairing suggestions. I was guessing the sage could be paired like a mid/medium brown sport coat.

I need to decide between the sage and plum SC. I'm guessing they will wear pair similarly well with with the same trousers.

i bought the plum as I have a green jacket in a similar colour to the sage. I can wear it with my sand linen trousers, pale grey high twist wool or navy chinos. Taupe VBC is next on my list

Finally copped the wool/cashmere DB coat. My first impression is that this is as hefty as the Zanieri polo coat but also hella soft. It's like wrapping a blanket around you. I love it.

My question is this: as I am transitioning to a more casual work setting, I only need one overcoat to do it all. In that case, should I stick with the navy or should I change to the camel color? Another concern with camel color from last season is that it is very muted like a mustard color in real life.

If leaning more casual, I probably would have went Single Breasted, but double breasted can work too. As far as colour, I'd agree with the others and say Navy. Very easy to wear up or down, while I'd recommend Camel if you only really wore casual outfits all the time as it more easily blends.
