thanks, I double checked the numbers against my North Face down jacket and they do seem to match up.
I got thrown off by the images showing a trench coat!
A Large North Face puffer jacket is very similar to the 42 here, but the waist is a bit slimmer, its a 47 on the north face but 45 on the 42 Down.
My belly at the Navel is 41ish wearing a tshirt and hoody, I wonder if I can pull off the 40 or need a 42.
I dont want to be swimming in it.

Anyone have this Down Jacket or seen it in person and can comment on the quality and/or fit??
Also, why does the 'body chart' show 36-37 for the waist (sz42) but on the Product details, it shows 45 on the 'upper waist'.
I dont understand this chat, why is it giving an extra 8 inches, isn't this the same body part?
Thanks for any help!
If in doubt, go bigger - especially with outerwear. You can always layer/tailor/enjoy the roomier fit.

i got a light grey havana suit at $180 too, so that can sub in as my only suit (my old navy one is worn out). Bought it mostly to wear the jacket as a separate but whatever works, not like i'll be wearing a suit anytime soon...it was just too good of a deal to pass up for something i had some need for

As I'm coming up to 5-6 years with some SS suits, curious how you identify when a suit is ready to be retired?

this one was Banana Republic, not my first suit but my first "nice" suit. I got it 7 years ago, it has some life left in it as I don't wear suits all that often but mostly it was tailored in a way that I'm no longer happy with as I'm more style conscious now. Most importantly the pants are rather baggy and I'm not going to invest in slimming them at this point. Generally the seat of the pants is the one that will wear out first (due to friction from sitting and some movement). Once they get noticeably thinner in some parts than others, it's probably time to retire unless you want a public wardrobe malfunction. Not my suit, but I've had that happen with pants before.

Everything in my first order shipped. Guess I'll have to get married again so I have a chance to wear that white tux!

For me, the underside of the sleeves also wear out pretty quickly from resting m arms on my desk while typing.
