Yeah see I dont need but the legs to shrink maybe an inch or 2 to be just right and the sleeves on the jacket are just about perfect but I could handle an inch or 2 as well as stated above I've hot washed and dried it 3xs to try and shrink it down but nothing. I'm gonna wear it to class tonight and just roll the legs up a bit and try to break it in and soak it overnight in hot water and oxiclean which I do after every class. Luckily a friend of mine will hem it and put my patch on for me. Otherwise I would have to wait 2 weeks to get it done at a tailor. Hopefully after wearing it a few times and a few more washes it will shrink down where I need it and she can just put my patch on.

If it's still long after a month or so of use, maybe just take it to a tailor.
