Drinkwater's FW 15 selections from Creep are in stock and available S > XL Wool Shawl Collar Deck Jacket Cotton Oil Coated Bomber Jacket Double Face Cotton Officer Shirt Wool Point Collar Shirt Donegal Wool Zip-Up Cardigan
We are pleased again to introduce Creep FW 15. Hiroshi Awai's passion for textiles has proven once again to be the highlight of the collection. The spectrum of color doesn't lean in any one direction but still maintains a harmonious blend of seasonal hues. CREEP was founded in Osaka, Japan by Kiyofumi Awai in 1997. In 2008, Kiyofumi’s junior sibling Hiroshi, based in Toronto Canada, joined CREEP as men’s creative director and launched an exclusive men’s line, CREEP by...
I would say it fits more like the Bedford where there is little taper and more of a tubular fit. However double breasted jackets are always a fit that feels a little bit roomier. For those that want more suppression, that could be done with tailoring.

Hello Guys & Gals, Today we received the much anticipated Dexter Jacket / Black/Navy Wool Horizontal Stripe S > XL $530.00 This picture does not do much justice to the rich jewel tones this fabrics possess. Better pictures to come.

A jacket like the Bedford without sleeve vent should only be $30 > 40. With your arms by your side, measurement should be 4 > 4 1/4" from end of thumb.

Fabric is always a factor!
So, let me set something straight with this. 6 divided by $100 = $16.6 the factory makes. Lets say there was two extra hours of work and the markup of 2.4 from cost of $40.00, we're paying that worker / craftsperson $10.00 an hour. Are you comfortable with that? Quite frankly, I think there is most likely an hours extra work and at that quotient, I'm satisfied that they can eat. I hope this makes sense.
Cost is not an arbitrary decision. However, after reading the NYT's T magazine yesterday, a Jill Sander T Neck for $850 makes me wonder. Every aspect of construction has a task factor that builds cost in labor. Every garment has a yield factor that builds cost in raw materials. And as @mbaum suggested, when you run larger quantities through production, cost does go down. I'll make no excuses for price but having garments sustain 12 years of wear and with lots of life...
