Fit looks good to me! Mine is maybe a size up from what I’d really want but I can layer…. Also I see that as an excuse for a new color

I know I just posted the wills yesterday…. But I couldn’t help but jump on that green wool Hopkins. Anyone else grab one today? They’re still up for pre order

I couldn’t resist this one.  I was lucky enough to be able to try on one of the old grey Hopkins in my size, and I was able to size down to a Large Tall (I normally need an XL in Ship John, but I’m kind of between sizes).   I have wanted a new wool jacket for years and the olive is MY color.

I was able to grab one of the Ship John x Langlitz Wills jackets as well. Amazing build quality. Love the jacket but will be putting it up for sale on the forum in the coming days. The fit just isn’t what I had hoped. I’ll probably have to take quite a hit on it too but hopefully someone will get some use out of it. They are great jackets.

Sadly no it isn’t. Each jacket was customized with your name on the inside of the inside pocket so return isn’t possible. That’s another reason it may be a tough sell. At least it’s on the inside of the inside pocket. I thought if it doesn’t sell it may fit my dad and would make a great Christmas gift.

That sucks. I imagine it may sell better than you think, especially if it isn’t an extreme size.

Thanks. Hopefully it will. That’s the gamble I took and had to be prepared for it. XL long is about as extreme as you can get ha! It’s just a little too big for me but I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

How far off is the sizing? There are leather tailors who could possibly take a couple of inches out of the chest and get the fit right. It might be worth giving Langlitz a call to see what they can do.

Thanks @Graeme that’s a great idea. I hadn’t thought of that. I have a tailor that I think is pretty “darn” good that could at least take a look at it. I’m in Canada so sending to Langlitz for adjustment wouldn’t really work.  Thanks again.

great idea. Langlitz does a lot of that sort of work since their jackets fit like a second skin and people get old and fat.
I tried to have mine altered and they said ,yeah, sorry, not gonna work mate.  :'(
Those are my principles, and if you don't like them...
Well, I have others.

Do you have a regular Wills? I have one of these coming in same size as canvas Wills, sure hoping it fits!
