I purchased a 42R, which is my normal size. I took it to my tailor who told me it is a 44 Long. It would have cost me more than the jacket to get it altered, so I'm sending it back.
Decent looking casual jacket, but way too big and, as others have noted, especially big in the middle.

I'm not sure what the other reviews are talking about with respect to sizing. I ordered this jacket on closeout along with some other items, thinking that my tailor could take it in based on the other reviews. Got the jacket today and will say that it's a traditional American cut...on the boxy size...rather than a tapered waste "fitted" euro cut. That said, the 44L I got was a standard fit that you would find in most stores and other Kroon coats. I'm 6'3" 215 with a 36" waist and an athletic build. I'll have my tailor take in 1/2" from each side at the center to fit the jacket and 1/4" off the arms (I wear a 35" sleeve and like a little shirt to show) and this jacket will fit as good as any could.
As for the jacket...great construction typical of the Kroon jackets I've purchase from STP (this is my third). Classy gold satin liner, deep red felt liner under the collar and slant pockets set this jacket apart from most cotton sport coats. The out fabric is very nice, bordering business formal and business casual, but it doesn't have the sheen or drape (slightly stiffer) of a wool or wool/cashmere fabric. The hand stitching accents are also a nice touch that give it a trendy bespoke effect.
At the closeout price I paid...this jacket is a GREAT bargain

This jacket should be called the Wilford Brimley model. The fit is appropriate for the more generously shaped gentleman. I ordered my usual size (44) and overall the jacket was big but the waist way roomy. I had thought this was a modern designer company but the fit is for an older sedentary type.
Nice material though.
