I LOVE this jacket. It does run large. I first ordered an X-LARGE because the size chart indicated that for a 40" chest I would need that size. I measured the chest circumference of the X-LARGE and it measured 48". I sized down and there is still quite an overlap, but I'm okay with it, in case I want to wear a little heavier sweater underneath. It's a beautifully constructed, stylish jacket. It's more neutral than beige. (I think if true beige as being yellowish.) It's more oatmeal in color. Goes with absolutely everything!
