Any word on future changes to the peacoat? I'm going to be ordering one soon for Winter down here, but I just want to be sure I don't order one only to have a more refined iteration come out a month later Southern Hemisphere Edition:
Because runway stuff = things people actually wear right? inb4 moar man-children jumping on the bandwagon.
I work for R&B, so feel free to take anything I say with a grain of salt, but there is a lot wrong with this post.R&B suits are half-canvassed, made in Turkey. They are supposedly made in the same factory as Z Zegna and other brands, but that doesn't mean the quality is on par with Z Zegna.Fabric is often Loro Piana, and sometimes other mills but always clearly marked on the inside of the jacket.

Hope you have a speedy recovery mate, that's a story for the grandkids.
This may be the beginning of the end for me.

In my opinion SW&D does casual much better than MC. Have you seen the abortion that is the MC Casual thread? I'm...
Instead of posting something snarky, or feeding you probable misinformation, I'll instead ask that you do a search for a member on the Forvm called "DFWII". Please don't PM him, as he is no doubt extremely sick of answering the same questions over and over again, but read through his posts. He is one of the few members on this board that makes shoes, and if you take the time to read through his posts you will gain a thorough understanding of shoe construction. I'll also...
