post #11356 of 36557

I wish you guys stocked short jackets, I'm a little hesitant to special order something that may not fit right.

 

Do you think the standard jacket length for a 38 (29.75") would be slightly too long for someone who is 5'7"?

I'm wearing my Carmel Duck Chinos for the first time today, and boy...am I glad I got them. I passed them up initially because I already have a pair of khaki chinos in a lighter shade. These Duck Chinos have a great hue to them. The shade is pretty vibrant. They were pretty stiff from the get go as well, raw denim style stiff, but I feel they are getting softer as the day goes on.

NYR: What iPhone are you using to take those pictures? They look great!

Would be interested in a short length as well, Would need ~28-29 on a 40 and the measurements otherwise look like they would work. Need some suits and ideally would not want to have to stick with BBBF / Thom Browne / BoO

I almost always wear a short jacket - 38S. I'm 5'7 (and a half on a good day).

I went into the store though to try on the 38R before I special ordered the short and it turned out the 38 regular was perfect in terms of length (except for the sleeves).

Thanks man, iPhone4. Its a decent camera if you have good lighting up front. It even produces pretty dramatic shots with a heavy backlight as well. As for yesterdays shots, I think most of the drama of the image came from the grey and dreary sky/background with the crisp, dare I say, virginal white of the trousers...

Today I was in my French Blues for a day at the Museum:

On a lyrical note, I had a thought about what a stunning feeling it could be watching somebody get married in a suit that you actually designed yourself. Or even just see someone in one of those screaming chinos in the street. Kinda like getting someone into the music you wrote. Or maybe you start taking it for granted with the lapse of time, I don't know sarcasm.gif

Haha, no it's a great feeling. Actually, quite a few guys have been married in our suits, trousers, shirts, shoes, etc. They often send us some photos after the wedding and it's great to see.

And yes it's always cool seeing guys on the street in our stuff. I've had quite a few French Blue sightings here in the city, and it's great.

It depends on your body and your preferences. By the "standard" fit of sportcoats, our jackets are technically a short already. We intentionally wanted to make it a bit cropped for style.

Most guys at your height and chest size could probably wear the 38R without a problem. It largely depends on the length of your torso and where you like a jacket to fall. The best guide is to measure the length on a sportcoat that you already own and see how it matches up. The Short special order will make our jackets one inch shorter in length. And with the special order, we can also do the sleeves shorter or keep them regular length.

Special orders are a little bit of a shot in the dark, but I can happily say that our program has been an overwhelming success. We've done about 100 special orders since we've started, and the feedback has been great . It's important that this isn't a MTM program. We're not creating a totally new shape. We're just modifying a jacket that fits very well to the proper length. It took a while to develop our jacket pattern, but I can say that it's one of the best off-the-rack fits that I've ever seen. Pair that with the full seam allowances and pretty much everyone has gotten a great fit with or even without a modest amount of tailoring.

Short's are really easy to order. For both the Loro Piana and the Navy Super 120's, you can just take one inch off the body and the sleeves. The other measurements stay the same, and of course, the entire jacket is scaled for the shorter length. It takes about 4-6 weeks (generally around 4) and costs $50 more. We take a 50% deposit with the order and bill you for the balance when the jacket arrives.

Rob: Are all of your outdoor pictures taken with the iPhone? I have an iPhone 4 as well, but I don't think my pictures are that high of quality. I will try next time!

Going to rock the Plum Duck Chinos tomorrow. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

The 4S is a huge jump from the 4 in photo quality. I upgraded for that reason. It almost makes up for the fact that my battery on the 4S seems to die 30% faster.

Thanks, will send you a PM about this

Got my cotton twill walts this week and absolutely loving them! They feel tough but still look great with a blazer.

Does anyone own the fidelity shawl collar peacoat? I received mine but it doesn't have any inside buttons so I'm wondering if this is normal or a fault.

New stock has been spectacular, Mike.

I've been away for a bit but am eying up some of the new edition Chinos. I think I read to size up one from previous version due to a tighter top block on the new runs. Is that a false rumor or is that recommened? Can anyone with experience help a man out?

the sizing up was in regards to the modifications of the rivet chinos not walts. but even in the case of the chinos I didn't change my sizing for it.

Oops, I meant the new edition Rivet Chinos compared to the previous edition. Brain fart. Did you find the fit tighter in the top block at all?

I had to size up from 33 to 34 on the new Rivet chinos because of an appreciably tighter fit in the top block. Obviously it will vary depending on your body.
