I've only ordered one sport coat, but the chest was surprisingly not very drapey. The coat was also a bit short, had some balance and sleeve pitch issues (which, I was disappointed to have to point out myself at the final fitting). And the shoulders were a little squared off. The coat didn't have that rounded, drapey silhouette I've seen in old A&S photos (and from my interactions with him, Colin seems to still wear in his suits).Yes, I do (the trim part of your question, not the boxy part). To start with, the fronts are all darted, which helps a lot. And as I said in my reply above, they further accentuate the shape by encouraging you to nip in the waist. Such an improvement over the formless suits I used to wear, when I was clueless about the way a suit should fit. Thanks to their cut and suggestions, I now look like I'm wearing an elegant suit and not a formless sack.
I don't mind the nipped waist, but I was surprised by the clean chest and slightly squared off shoulders. Ended up getting my final fitting adjustments done elsewhere, so maybe the sleeve pitch and balance issues are unfair critiques, but I don't think the overall silhouette would have changed.
