    Casey - tailor it if the shoulders aren't too big and you feel confident that it will fit good enough after the tailoring has been done.

    Everything that hasn't felt good from the moment I put it on has been bothering me enough to sell it later.

    So much this :( You convince yourself you'll learn to live with it, and then months later when it's still unworn you realize what an awful decision that was...

    I don't think it's just that the sleeves are too long, though. It kind of looks big in the shoulders, if the photo of the model is anything to go by. He could shorten the sleeves, but I'm not sure it would be an ideal fit.

    lots of cool fits today. great job guys!

    parker-- that is very cool. would be even better with a cigar clenched between your teeth.

    lorcan-- i really like that. especially the layering in the second pic.

    reedo-- i know i'm probably just projecting my own tastes here, but everything seems to fit one size small/tight. one of the reasons i really liked that bless fit of yours was that you let it flow/gave things some breathing room.

    casey-- i think the shoulders of the coat fit well, especially if you're gonna layer anything other than a t-shirt (and i think the lookbook model is wearing the coat too small). the bigger issue, though, is that mid-thigh length coats in that style are often not super flattering when they're done up. for some reason, having a tubular silhouette works well when the coat is knee-length, but not so well when it's just your torso + a bit more. at least to my eye. the coat would look better when worn open, but that may defeat the purpose if you need it for warmth. (there's also a weird blousey flair in the side-angle photo you posted.)

    I agree that mid-length coats can be tricky, especially when they're cut kinda blousy / a-line like this season's Schneider. The effect of most coats of this length is that of a really structured oversized suit jacket. Peacoats are a prime example of this - Big barrel of a torso, waddly penguin arms, often exacerbated by stick legs and the seemingly huuge boots sticking out the bottom.

    Buuut, if your swagger is strong, you can get away with a lot of silhouette weirdness.

    nah ghostface, you're right. Those APCs are pretty damn tight after a crotch repair and 20+ wash/dries. And I'm letting the sweater go...Everything else fits fine

    Probably a good choice, some fur hats are lot bigger IRL than they look in pictures. Just got one myself I need to return.
