My New Custom Turnout Gear....Too Big?
I just got new custom fitted bunker gear and I feel that my coat is too large.....it's definitely too long in the sleeves (tip of sleeve goes past my finger tips....wristlets go like 2" past finger tips...) so I'm bringing it back for them to re-fit the sleeves, which doesn't seem like it will require too much work....but my main concern is that really, I think the entire jacket may be too large.
My name flap comes all the way down to the crease behind my knees, and the chest and back feel too wide as well....
I'm a smaller female (5'4" with a small frame) and I seriously feel like somebody's kid when I'm wearing that thing. My old jacket fits great....but needed to be replaced. It just sucks when it feels like a downgrade rather than an upgrade.
When I was being measured I kind of questioned the measurements and the guy wasn't too fond of that. Now, 3 months later it's FINALLY finished, but I'm bringing it back in a few days, questioning those same measurements and then some. Part of me feels bad for being adamant that this is too large and that I want them to re-do it, because that's a lot of re-work.....but I guess I just want to know if this coat sounds like it's too long (certainly feels too long). The guy was kind of a dick the first time I was there. I just want to be sure I'm not off my rocker before I start to ask for all these changes....my thought is that he's going to try to get me to believe that it fits fine, since he's the one who messed up with the measuring...but I need this thing to fit correctly.
