Or I should say sportcoat at risk of being sent to charity. This coat is a bit short but I only wear it with dark jeans so it may be passable in that context. Otherwise it is a nice flannel material that has much life left. Still I feel there might be something unbalanced with the fit. Perhaps it is too top heavy with this lapel to be so short? Or maybe the styling is dated for a gentleman in 2013 (it is over 12 years old)? I value the opinions here quite a bit. Thanks.
