A Saint Laurent 42 is very small. I have one Saint Laurent jacket in that size and it fits very tight on me. Dior sizing under Kim Jones tends to run oversized or relaxed, so a Dior 46 would be much larger than the Saint Laurent 42. Professional alteration can help, but it generally shortens the sleeves, the hem, takes in the sides, and any more modification would be using the coat as fabric to make another coat because the patterns used to make the coat would have to be cut again to make the coat look normal. For instance, even moving the shoulders would affect how the arm hole meets the sleeves.I am considering to get this trench coat from Dior but online as it will be much cheaper but only size EU46/UK36 is available.
However, I am not sure about the sizing. I have another coat from Saint Laurent in size 42, it hugs my body just right.
Or i can still order this one and have it altered professionally. LOLLL
