Default Fitted Jacket?

It's time for me to get a new jacket. I really want to get a fitted jacket so some help would be great. I'm not looking for a very slim fit look but i'm open to all recommendations.

I'm tall and lanky, 6'1". I'd like a jacket that is nice and warm where I can survive in - Degrees, with just a sweater preferably, I'd rather not layer up. I want something with length in the sleeves and body. It sucks when I reach to do my binding up and the sleeves comes off my glove. And it's a bonus if it could double as a street jacket on cold days.

Any opinions would be great.

Look at Holden and L1, they typically have more fitted looks.

right now dogfunk has a fit selector on the opening of their site that will show you all of the jackets that they have in a slim fit.

thanks, thats actually really helpful.


So far it seems like lots of fitted jackets aren't built for warmth.

A slim fit 686 and slim fit L1 are vastly different. So it just saying "slim" doesn't mean much.

L1 is by far the greatest outerwear of all time. For me Bonfire might just be second. Or Cappel. The Cappel slims fit like L1 regulars, the Bonfire slims fit like L1 slims but the regulars are baggier than L1 regulars.
