My next NSM suit will be in the single breasted peak lapel (SBPL?) cut. I'll be using a dark, dark, almost-charcoal, brown chalkstripe worsted, 16 oz., from the P&B Universal book. Two buttons, no vest.
I tried on some Ring Jacket stuff at the Armoury in NYC. For reference, I'm a 42 S in most suits and sportcoats; 5'6"; broad in the shoulders, chest and back.
-I was a 42 in the AMJ model sports coat. The length of the jacket is short; I'm 5'6" and it was perfect for me.
-I was an XXL in the "pea coat" (really a bridge coat) and even then over a sweater it's a tad on the snug side, but still comfortable.
To anyone who's been to the NYC store, do they have a nice selection of overcoats? I'm looking for a camel double breasted coat. Preferably one that ends at the knee. Billy Reid has one but it runs very small and they're out of my size.
My DB brown Casentino coat arrived today - Greg was great about my sizing snafu (it fits really snug.) For future buyers, I'm a size 42/52 in suits and I needed a 56.
The color is great, it's a nice mix between beige and brown.
Heh, I suppose I could do that - it would go with the casual nature of the jacket. But I think it would a bit odd what with the thickness of the material.It's too bad the buttons are working, it's a fantastic looking jacket and I was looking for a brown overcoat.
