So I went to a book tour event for David Coggins' book Men and Style, organized by Article menswear and hosted by the Mercantile Library in Cincinnati.He was a super nice guy. He specifically told me he thought I was well dressed. This brown Lorenzo jacket gets the most compliments of anything I own and the most social media "likes" and comments.He was wearing his Drakes collection stuff. Knit tie, OCBD and green tweed jacket with dark green chinos and chelseas. [[SPOILER]]
Went to a fun little event last night at the Mercantile Library in Cincinnati. They hosted—along with local menswear shop Article—David Coggins.

@Gusw Right at the end is the comment he makes.

Beautiful, brilliant, thick fabric, just fantastic. too light of a...

so, on the augusto, how do folks size compared to, say, how they take the tenero?
haha! just am wearing it today!(i promise i don't get a commission)
looks perfect. that jacket is meant to be that long.
So they have these X% off sales and make it seem like a big deal but you might notice they jack up the price online whenever the discount gets higher. It's a different story if you go into the store. The prices stay pretty constant and so extra 40% is pretty great depending on what you're looking at. For instance, I exchanged the navy shawl cardigan for a different size and was able to score it for $32 (originally got it for $50), because even though they didn't have it...
