Opinion On This Jacket Please.
Hello, I'm going to purchase the jacket below, but thought I'd get some opinions first.
By the way I'm a 20 year old university student, 5'11, athletic build. I need a coat for winter and have decided on a parka.
I'm not to keen on them brace things on the back, but I could easily get them removed professionally.
Also the website says the model is 6'2, the arms look a bit long, would you recommend sizing down? My chest size is 40 inch, so a small might be tight.

Are the braces part of the jacket? I wouldn't have thought so.
Wouldn't bother sizing down, oversized is kinda the style with parkas.

Think the braces are on the trousers or just an accessory they've added to the modelling. I'd stick with true to size, having longer arms isn't a bad thing, it isn't a tailored jacket so doesn't really matter.
