That's approximately five size tags too big for me, but thank you.
Repeating much of the above.
For me, if I am not happy with the fit, I will inevitably let it go, as many here will attest
I have also become very pedantic on my fit requirements. Life's too short to not enjoy what you wear, or suffer nagging doubts about sleeve length every time to wear a jacket, especially if its cost you dearly.
If its something special, and not readily replaceable... but its not a perfect fit, then as some here have said, may be worth keeping and enjoying it, with its imperfections.
For example, if I bought a new jacket and its was not 100%, I may very well pass it on and try get another with a better fit (this would not apply to a Goodwear though, with a 2 year plus wait)...
If it was a cheaper jacket, like my AVIs, that didn't cost me an arm or leg and only come in std sizes, then I may keep them as 'beaters'... Or jackets to experiment with.
If it was secondhand jacket I picked up, that did not fit 100% but is a one-of-a-kind... And something I really liked, I'd keep it.
I'll endeavor to take a few pics! My shift patterns are such that I won't be there when the doors open - despite my relative proximity, it's still a couple hours from Glasgow to Gala, so even if I leave 9-ish, it's an 11am arrival and I suspect those ahead of me will be like locusts in heavy leather...
