    I think for a casual jacket that you'll wear with chinos/jeans, the 42R is better.

    I personally like a trim fit and think both JC and GAP in small look good. GAP looks a bit better since it seems to give you more room in the chest. Medium will probably be too billowy as you mentioned.

I tried on a worsted wool jacket in 42R and it seemed like the sleeves were about right, but the body was a bit short. Also, the jacket seemed a bit tighter--I'm not sure if that's because of the different models or the different sizes.

    Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of each. My thoughts are that the long is the better fit, as long as I get the sleeves shortened. Am I right?

    Long:

    Regular size fits better on you.

    Is it just me, or do my new Beckmans look like big, fat clunkers on my skinny frame? I think the bulbous toes just don't suit me - my 1ks look amazing on me but I dunno about these:

    @Binarythird, I think that the shoes look silly, but you look great. The problem is that you're thin and in shape and your clothes are slim-fitting. The shoes do not fit in with that sleek silhouette.

    thanks man, appreciate the observation..this is what I thought as well, the beckmans are just too clunky for my frame. I love the 1ks because they are much sleeker.

    Need a little advice on tailoring. I bought a cotton Ludlow blazer that's a little long in the sleeves and needs taken in a little at the waist I think. What do you guys think needs to be done.

    Sleeves shortened for sure. Probably around 1 inch. hard to tell if the waist should be taken in based on the pic, but it looks like a nice fit!
