Does the Gap and Banana Republic use the same sizing?

Do Gap and BR use the same sizing?

There's this long wool trench coat that I want from Banana Repubic, but there's no BR's around me so I'm forced to order it online. However, I was at the Gap yesterday and I tried on a similar wool coat. The Small fit perfectly in terms of everything BUT the chest area, where it was just a tad bit snug. However, the Medium was really loose around the arm area.

Should I go with a Small in BR as well?

Thanks in advance :)

I think that Banana may run a liiiiiiiittle bit smaller. I usually wear one size in GAP, but I can't wear that size in Banana.

Honestly, I would order both sizes online (because two wool coats at Banana is definitely going to cost you more than $125, which is how much you have to spend to get free shipping) and then just return the one that you don't want. It makes it easier than worrying about if it's the right size.

Hope this helped!!

Thanks for your advice! :) However, I can't order it from BR online because the coat that I want is from Summer 2005, and therefore I can only get it on Ebay :(

I am SOOOOOOOOOOO torn. I really don't know what size to get...I hate it when coats are loose on me, but I also don't want it to be SUPER TIGHT around my chest :(

Ahhh! So confused!!!!
