Good quality coat; slightly boxy
on February 27, 2013
I purchased this coat for formal wear and the styling and wool/cashmere blend is very nice. The pick stitching and pocket flaps add some nice character to the coat and the material feels high-quality. Weighs a decent amount as well so it is sufficient thickness for cold climates and would probably wear well over time. However, I returned it for 2 reasons. First, the sleeves are short on it - shorter than any other coat I tried of the same size. I ordered a 40R (which is what I normally wear) and the shoulder & chest fit fine, but the sleeves needed to be about an inch or so longer. The coat sleeves would just reach the end of my jacket sleeves and would show my shirt under it. Second, the body is a bit boxy. I normally wear fitted/slim fit shirts and I would say this is not a slim fit. If I would have kept it, I would have wanted it taken in a few inches. If you are carrying a bit of extra weight, it would fit fine, but if you are trim, it will likely be too big in the body.
