  I have a feeling you were never BBBF's target demographic. The whole point of BBBF was to introduce Brooks Brothers to a younger generation that for the most part had written it off as a stogy old man store. Hate on Thom Browne all you want but it's pretty clear that shorter jackets, narrower lapels, and higher pant lengths are on trend right now.    As for the fall 2012 collection, I'm not that into the oversized tartans, I think they look kind of bizarre on my frame....
  Pretty sure the ones I linked to have been around for at least two seasons, or are you talking about something else? I don't really follow this line.
I really like the prorsum ones:   http://us.burberry.com/store/trench-coats/mens-trench-coats/prorsum/prod-44555591-mid-length-cotton-trench-coat/   http://us.burberry.com/store/trench-coats/mens-trench-coats/prorsum/prod-44555541-cotton-military-trench-coat/   Cut a little slimmer than the heritage and london, but hard to justify at that price.

To answer some questions, the lapel is 2.25 inches, and the lapel roll is fine.           Apologies in advance for the wrinkles, cell phone, dirty mirror, and t-shirt. 
  Small for him, not for me. Both will probably be too short though.
  If it helps, in the post above yours I'm wearing a medium and I'm 5'9", 185lbs, 41.5" chest, 34" waist. I'd probably go with small but don't know if it'll be too short on your torso.
Picked up this Black Fleece suit and blazer. Had the sleeves shortened on the jackets, and pants hemmed and tapered. I'm realizing now that the jackets are undarted and a little boxy. I like a very slim fit, so I was wondering if it's possible and/or worth it to add front darts? Should I get the waist suppressed or leave it as is? Thanks!    
Received my shirt yesterday. Feels great, much nicer than my AA shirts but I was a little disappointed in the fit. It's a little looser in the waist than I'd prefer, but my main gripe is the sleeves. I hate it when sleeve openings are really wide and create that triangle flappy thing. It's not like I have pencil arms either, so I'm not sure whose arms these sleeves are made for.     Here's comparison of an AA t-shirt (size M).     Both shirts have been...
