Nice warm jacket, not quite true to size

I need a heavy duty jacket (not the hiking/outdoor type jacket) for winter work outside the house and casual wear. This one is just what I am looking for. After reviewing the comments, I ordered a large. I am 5'10" 180# 42 chest/35 waist, and most of the L jackets fit me fine. The jacket arrived in a few days. I put it on and it seemed fit fine. It is thick, warm and tough. The sleeves/ length/shoulder fit just right. The only problem was when I zipped it up, the chest/abdomen feel just a little tight, espically if I straighten my shoulders. Reminded me of the motorcycle jackets I used to wear in the 80's. Even my wife agreed with my accessment. So I did a quick return and exchange for a XL. The new jacket fits me just fine with enough slack on the chest and waist. I am set. Overall it is a very good/warm/tough jacket at good price.
