Yup. I plan on keeping the jackets around until the fabric is used up, then re-assessing based on demand.
From the guy who does the dirty work:"The measurements are purely garment measurements. Pit to pit is a body measurement.However, on the garment, "chest to break" measures the distance from lapel fold to lapel fold.If you look at a photo of a jacket, there is a gap (empty space) in the middle/front of the chest that isn't covered by the jacket's fabric. This space is not counted in the chest to break measurement.Whereas "chest to the lapel edge" includes the unfolded...
The L's will be about 1.5" longer than their regular counterparts, so total length of the 38L (from bottom of the collar) will be approx. 31.5".Regarding the lining peeking out, we could easily use less of an underlining for anyone who wanted to temper the look a bit. In general, the underlining will not be visible unless the collars are upturned.
Because the shoulders are unpadded, in my opinion, the jacket will likely work better for sloped shoulders than a different jacket with traditional padded/structured shoulders. Particularly over time as the jacket molds to the wearer's natural contours.

^^This is a legitimate concern, and something I'm still trying to figure out (the cheapest/most reliable way to ship overseas). I'm happy to ship packages to the UK by regular mail at a lower shipping rate. This will probably mean forgoing tracking, however.
Thanks.Yes, this is a known bug we're still working out (re: the shopping cart using the default picture instead of the item selected by the customer).The lady with blue headscarf is "New Lagos (Red Background)"
Not yet, my ego got in the way a bit when creating the lookbook. But i'll work on using a few more body-types.Squares are available for sale now!Thanks All. And yes, I will absolutely ship to the UK.
It occurred to me that people might want an update on my latest business misadventure. Here is a little background on my menswear brand - Ikiré Jones ( With Ikiré Jones, I’ve married Neapolitan tailoring and African aesthetics. All of the pieces are made using English and Italian tailoring methods, but the inspiration is West Africa. It’s a melting-pot that reflects my personal history. Until recently, I worked as an attorney in a big law...
