Hiya, Here are two versions of two coats, one JCrew and one RL, both tweed sport coats in 40R and 38R. I am 5'9" and 160 lbs. I don't need anything super slim but I want it to look good and not baggy. What are your thoughts on these? I don't like the JCrew because the lapels are too small and the shoulders too padded, but let me know what you think about the fit. This post is prompted by the fact that the 38R RL coat seems to be pulling at the button, and the back vent is opened under normal wear. None of them have been tailored for width. I know there are differences in fit between brands, but which of these sizes would you choose in each jacket? Should I keep the 38 and try to get it widened in the chest area, or try to reduce the width of the 40R? Or should I just sew up part of the back vent? And which of the JCrew is the better fit off the rack? I know the sleeves would need shortening so don't need to comment on that. The RL is the Aberdare shown here: http://www.ralphlauren.com/product/i...entPage=family The JCrew is the Ludlow fit tweed.
