I just got this coat, it's an 81" where he measured 80.2". I'm thinking it looks a bit big on him, but I am FAR from an expert on it. Please let me know! I'm not sure if it's supposed to flare out like this either? Here's why I think it's too big...the hind part seems to overlap, but he moves around comfortably in it. And just for kicks...Sir Dapples awaits your reply!
