    My sleeves were short. Fit was too tight. RETURNED

    mine just came in. shoulder fit is great, pretty good everywhere else, but i need to get the sleeves taken in - they're pretty baggy. also, probably take in the midsection. problem is... now i'm paying more for the tailoring than the jacket.

    I asked the same question about the gray and someone replied that the website image is pretty accurate. Based on that I passed. I wanted a little darker gray. The website almost looks white to me.

    The grey is a great color...lighter than heather, maybe the slightest blue hue to it, it's a "cooler" grey.

    I wear it over whatever I'm wearing when I head out for drinks or shopping. Having the extra pockets for keys is great, and no matter what you'll look good. Favorite combo is jeans with a white ocbd over a henley. Has a more casual air than a v-neck sweater. I have no problems wearing it everywhere, if it gets stained or torn buying a new one is probably cheaper than cleaning, really.

    I'm 6'3", with a 40 chest and the medium fits perfect if I'm moving around slightly. I can't really tie my shoes - it gets too tight around the shoulder/biceps - same thing if I'm driving, I have to hike the sleeves up a bit to get that mobility. Wondering if I should go large on the next one and get it adjusted. Not sure yet.

    It was only slightly difficult to get on. Once it was one (with just a fitted t-shirt under) I felt comfortable in it.

    Here is where the problems arise...
    I am able to shake hands and function all right eating at a table or writing at a desk, BUT I cannot bend over to pick anything up or reach above my chest. My movement is very limited. I have a 42 inch chest and normally wear a 40R. I purchased a Medium. Undecided at this point. Probably returning it.

    Just wondering how everyone wears it.
    I would slide my arms through the arms holes and let it drape over my shoulders.

    I'm a 38R, 32 waist as well (except for Bonobos pants where I'm a 31) and the medium Kensington fits me very well also. My only quibble is with the sleeves, which are way too long on me. That's not so difficult to fix, though.

    mr. mr. The medium should fit you well. I am a 38r and the navy Kensington in medium is perfect for me.

    just picked up 2 for 54 dollars, they're on sale for 30 each, 10$ off each $50.

    i got the khaki and the navy in medium. i've only tried on the small - not close to fitting. i'm a 38r, 32 waist, hoping the medium fits.

    It very versatile. Like printyra says, jeans and chinos for sure. I sometimes wear mine for business casual things with a plaid sportshirt and knit tie.
