    Wow, is it really that bad?? And do you mean both are too big, or just the one?

    Unfortunately I wasn't able to try the TH on beforehand, since it was an online order too. But I'll be honest and say I didn't think it was that far off when I put it on. Perhaps I would be better off with a 38L rather than a 40R (sleeve length always kills me).

    They're nice items, but I have to agree that they are both too big. From the pics I would say they are too big all over (i.e. in the shoulders, not just the waist). If that is the case, the you've got three options - take it to a decent tailor and get his/her advice on whether they alter the shoulders. This can be expensive though, and might not be worth it. Or see if you can get away with using them as outwear, and wear heavy layers underneath (see Ivan's post on the pattern-mixing challenge thread). The tweed one will lend itself to this especially. Or you can sell them.

    They both look big to me tbh. There seems to be a lot of room in the waist and shoulders. I really think you are a 38 - you look pretty slim.

    Is it too late to exchange the Hilfiger? Guessing the vintage one can't go back, but it wasn't that expensive anyway so a few alterations could help.

    I think this might be helpful:



    Here are some well-fitting blazers.



    It should hug your body really. Yours seem to have quite a bit of volume to the fit. It's a common mistake to buy the size up.

    Agree that the blazers are too big.

    Hmm, well thanks for the tips guys.

    @Nat Yeah I've been meaning to visit my tailor for a while for some other things, I'll bring the tweed along when I do.... Retaining it as outerwear in any case seems like it might be a good option, as that was at least half the reason I bought it in the first place.

    @Ivan That is helpful, though I've noticed modern fit seems to gravitate more towards the "too small" area for jacket closure (even the middle top guy in your picture looks more like the "too small" than the "just right" picture IMO, but maybe that's just me...)

    I feel pretty confident I could exchange the Hilfiger, assuming a 38 L is still in stock... I will definitely try to.

    I don't really like any of the Belstaff jackets, tbh. But I guess it's just not my type.

    So comfy and super versatile. Bought it with holiday in mind but it will go with a lot of stuff I reckon.

    Already tried it with a few bits, it works as a standalone jacket, can be worn with a shirt and a knitted tie for a smarter thing, it can be layered under coats and jackets, and it works over my denim jacket too.

    Pics soon come
    Nice pick up, have had my eye on this for awhile.
