Lol, no it didn't #peacoatsIf it were me, I would get a Loro Piana Icer or a Billy Reid Peacoat.
Yes, absolutely. I like the texture of twill and royal oxford over broadcloth, it also seems to garner most compliments, perhaps because it's more noticeable.

I saw Luxire has a few fabrics from Harrisons now. Does anyone know if they can source any fabrics from them currently? For example, their coatings and moonbeam fabrics?
Semi-annual is usually the best all around
