The Essential Black Military Jacket by Indochino

You’ve got to hand it to custom men’s clothier Indochino – they know how to create stylish looks that’ll fit a variety of tastes. Whether you’re looking for a classically styled suit, or a blazer that’ll help you stand out from the crowd, they’ve probably got what you’re looking for. Their latest outerwear collection is no exception. With more than 20 coats to choose from, you’ll be able to find exactly what you need to complete any cold weather look. In addition to the outerwear, they’ve also released a line of 100% mongolian cashmere scarves in 6 different colors.

We asked Indochino to let us try the Essential Black Military Coat and an Olive Green Mongolian Cashmere Scarf on for size, and you can see the results here.

It’s the little things that always impress me with Indochino’s products. Details you wouldn’t find in clothing you purchased elsewhere (that in some cases cost much more), you’ll find in the garments they put together. The military coat($349) is made from a blend of wool and cashmere, which looks sturdy and well put together while still feeling soft to the touch. Inside the coat, you’ll find a quilted lining that you customize with the color of your choice, as well as a few well placed pockets and a removable suede scarf loop. The neck enclosure protects against the elements, and just looks really cool with the attached metal buckle.

You can also get an optional belt if you’d like, but for big guys, I’d recommend skipping it as it has a tendency to segment your body in a way that isn’t quite as flattering.

The Mongolian cashmere scarf ($99) is a great addition, and if you’re just starting to become adventurous with colors, the fact that these scarves are all solid colors is perfect for you. Indochino guarantees that each scarf is 100% cashmere, and you can certainly tell when you wrap one around your neck; They’re warm and soft, and won’t leave your neck itchy like some lesser quality products do. Though I’m a fan of the green, you can also choose from purple, red, gray, and two shades of blue.

As we always mention when talking about Indochino, the best part about the company is that your clothing order is custom made to fit you, so you know it’ll be exactly what you’re looking for. If for some reason, you need it altered, they offer a $75 alteration credit that you can use at your local tailor. They’re doing a lot to make it easy for you to order clothing to your exact specifications.

If you’re looking for a coat for colder weather (or a gift for some other lucky gent in your life), consider Indochino’s outerwear collection for high quality, great looking clothing in the sizes you need.

Who does he write for?

anthonymg Same here. Sizes run the spectrum since they're not universal, so sometimes a 42 fits and sometimes a 46 fits. I feel you on being on the line - you can't go to a lot of the mainstream stores and find what you're looking for, but you also can't find the styles you want at B&T unless you really search. Have you checked out Nordstrom.com or Macys.com? Both offer sizes to something like 60 waist and 5X shirts with styles from well known brands. I've been really happy with what I'm finding at those places. Hope this helps!

Chubstr,  I find that Sizes vs fitment to be wide open when it comes to clothes for my body type.  I am 6'3" 320lbs  Which for my style ends up being a 40"x32" waist slim fit,low rise jean and anything from a 2XLT to a 4X depending on the cut of the shirt.  See the problem a guy like me has is what I call the "in-betweener"  I can't shop at most normal stores because everything is "FAT man in a little shirt" and then stepping into a Big and tall store (read: Conservative and Frumpy) and I'm the guy that is now tall enough, but not wide enough. Destination XL has done a good job re-branding themselves with more fashionable clothes, but they still are not fashion forward enough for me.

anthonymg Thanks for the comment Anthony! If you can tell us what your sizes are, we can point you in the right direction. We definitely try to feature clothing in sizes as large as we can find them available, but sometimes they are difficult to find. You'll see a lot of options on the site that go to 5X or 6X. This particular post is a reader photo submission, so this guy has shared specifically what he's wearing and where he got it, which isn't always available in every size. Since it's a reader photo submission, the clothing is based on the size of the gent in the photo. Hope this helps! Check out our resources section and feel free to tell us your sizes and what specifically you're looking for and we'll help you out. Thanks for checking out Chubstr!

Werd!  6'3" 320lbs seems to be to big for most of the fashion that I am finding here.  To big, yet to small for "Big and Tall"
