Seriously, how do people keep posting in the wrong threads?
I've usually gone with AE for a long time, but with their prices creeping up so much, I was thinking of going with Meermin. Has anyone else made the switch and can help with sizing? I wear an 8D on the 65 last, but it's a little narrow and tight, if I had to pick a complaint. Any advice for what last and size I should go for with Meermin?

My thought was that it was Southwick, as I've seen fabrics at Club Monaco that I've seen at Epaulet's site for their MTO blazers. On one of the labels of a MIA blazer, the item code also began with SW, which made me think my suspicions were right. Or there could just be multiple US factories/companies that make them too. With Epaulet blazers coming in at $800 pretty soon, definitely looking to CM more.

Looking forward to seeing the crewneck sweaters from Northern Watters. I didn't preorder, but depending on how they look I might for the next round.
Any jackets shipped after the break for holidays that was mentioned in the spreadsheet?
For sale is a brand new (just tried on) Alden Tan Calfskin Shortwing in 8.5D on the Aberdeen last, which is a bit more tapered than Alden's usual shapes. For reference, I wear an 8D on the 65 last for Allen Edmonds. I bought it quite a few months ago, and haven't gotten around to wearing it, so I'm selling it. It is made in French calfskin, and has a double-leather sole, so can work in a smart business casual office or with jeans and sneakers. It comes with the box,...
