Jacket Fit Check

Wanted to get some fit opinions, posting this in a couple different places. This is the burgundy velvet dinner jacket I picked up from J Crew recently during the sale. I'm typically a 38R in most brands, but ordered a 39R and 40R in this, since it's their Ludlow fit.

39R fits a bit better in the chest (slimmer), but I guess I want extra sets of eyes on it to make sure it fits okay everywhere else

Worth noting- I actually have last year's navy in size 40R (it was the only size available), and that has worked fine. Since I had the option this year to try a 39R, I went ahead and decided to try both. Both technically fit, I'm just looking for the better fit between the two.

Without a side view and a back view, I can't see any appreciable difference.

Suggestion: Make a two-part You Tube video. In the first part, you're in a bar brawl wearing the 39R; in the second, the action has moved to the parking lot, but now you're wearing the 40R.

A 360-degree look at you in action--that's what I need to make the call.

Finally! The side and back views I was waiting for. Does this mean that the You Tube video I suggested is imminent? My hopes are high. Don't worry--bloodstains will be inconspicuous on those jackets.

In the meantime, I provisionally vote for 40.

I like those slippers, by the way.
