    I am 5'7" 150. I get a S and they fit perfect.

      J Crew Factory Thompson Topcoat? I am 5'10", skinny 140lbs. Usually wear a 36 suit zara. Does the same go for a topcoat or should I size up? 36 or 38?

        I just bought these trousers and I'm not sure if they are too short or slim or not. I know that the arms of the Jacket are a little bit too long, i will fix that soon! Any thoughts on the outfit, too? I just put it on quickly, so the knot is not even close to perfect...

        Thanks in advance guys!

          JCF Thompson Corded Cotton Suit Jacket (Newport Blue), size 40L

          Bought this a while ago for a few summer/spring events that I know I'll be attending next year. I'm looking at the JCF brown (or charcoal.. can't decide) herringbone sport coat and want to see if I should get the same size, size up or just bail completely. I'm 6'5''/175lbs so this is my first OTR blazer/sport coat purchase in a while. I know the sleeves are short but there is a good 1-2 inches folded under the sleeve lining, so I'm hoping I can get the sleeves let out to what I want (if not, I have a slightly shorter brother who will get this).

          I know it definitely needs some tailoring, so I'm looking for any feedback I can take with me!

            [MENTION=12628]Luaks[/MENTION], Wow, the outfit looks pretty good. The trousers are either slightly too slim in the hips, or the rise is too low. The lower legs and the length look fine.

            I think the jacket sleeves are fine... unless you want to show more cuff, but I like how it looks now. The jacket waist looks a little too snug though.

            Something is off about the tie. Maybe it's just the knot, maybe I just prefer a fuller or wider tie, I'm not sure.

            Overall, great outfit. (The shoes just look large because of the tapered trousers)

              [MENTION=12628]Luaks[/MENTION] If you plan on wearing those trousers with a jacket most of the time I'd say they're too slim (I'm not close to a traditionalist but I do like a slightly fuller cut than what you have with my jackets). If you think you'll mostly wear it with a dress shirt or OCBD +/- a tie +/- a cardigan or sweater, I think it's fine. And yeah, narrow openings will do that to your feet.

              Jacket itself seems to be pulling, as you see quite a pronounced 'x' - I'm of the mindset that a slight pull is fine if everything else looks right or it's more casual, this doesn't look like it'll be hard to fix nor will it throw off your fit/silhouette. I prefer wearing shirts that have collars large enough to tuck under the jacket lapels - LCDR, that may be what is throwing things off for you. We're just being picky, it's a fantastic combination.

                Ok guys, i struggle figuring out if I am a medium or a large when it comes to sweaters. I have been getting large size for the last year and they seem to be too long in the sleeves and a bit baggy in the waist. I am 5'10 and 172lbs and fairly built. I went BR last night and tried a v neck sweater medium size and was wondering if this is the perfect fit or its too tight (aka simon cowel look). It does show my physique a bit and its kind of flattering which i like. Sweater length and sleeve length is spot on. Thoughts?

                  You should walk around topless (no homo). I don't like what I wear to feel like a compression t-shirt (except when it is) but then again I don't have any guns, a broad chest, and all that bass.

                  I approve!

                    I like to size down for sweaters @93millionmilesway. Large sleeves usually fit better but I find that wool sweaters stretch enough to look good. With your build I would go for the medium as long as it isn't constricting in the chest upper back. If you got it flaunt it bud.

                      Personally, I think those look great. I probably trend a little slimmer than many on these boards, so take my opinion with a grain of salt. But that's what I'd shoot for, fit-wise.

                        Thanks. Yes, I can't do it for other garments such as polos/shirts/dress shirts as i have issues with sleeve length and collar size but with sweaters I think sweaters i will go with a medium. Also no shrinkage with wool.

                          So I bought some chinos this weekend. BR Aidens. I typically wear a 33 waist but due to the leg sizing these are a 36. What do you guys think of the fit? The pockets are billowing a little but not too bad compared to other chinos that I've tried.

                              The JCF Thompson Tweed Sport Jacket. This thing fits dangerously well, off the rack.

                              I'm 5'7(on a good day), 140 pounds, and wear a size 36s jacket normally. This thing is about a hair's length from being too tight on me. If I wear a chunky sweater, it will begin to X on me. The sleeves are a perfect length off the rack, the waist is well suppressed, the length is right, but this jacket is a slim fit from the first stitch.

                              Size up if you plan on heavy layering.

                                JCF Suit fit

                                Hey Guys,

                                I need some advice regarding a fit of a JCF suit. I tried the jacket in 40R and 42R and to me it looks like the 42 is a bit too large but the 40 is to small. The price is terrific right now and I am thinking that tailoring the 42 jacket will improve the look, unfortunately there is quite a bit of shoulder divot in both sizes and that is not going to get better.

                                42:

                                42:
