Very soon. We've got some Carminas coming either end of next week or right after that. Our new Thorogood horsehide work oxford (not a boot, but tough as f***) should be here by the end of the month. And I've got a bunch of Aldens on order which should hopefully arrive soon as well.

Questions: I gather that the hood does not zip off with the fur ruff? Also, how does it fit over a sport coat? Would you recommend sizing up to fit over a SC?

This is an "Export Quality" N3-B, so the production is done to the 1970's specs. "Export" meaning that nearly every unit from the US production is sent to Japan, where they go bonkers for mil-spec clothing.

Very old N3-B's had wool built inside them, and around the Vietman war era, it was remixed to the materials used on this jacket.

Officially, it's rated to 40 degrees below 0, Fahrenheit. I'd say that's probably an overstatement. But I can give a personal testimonial here. Back in 2001, I happened upon a deadstock Spiewak US-made N3-B at a NYC army-navy store. I bought it over the holidays and took it back to Vienna, Austria where I was living at the time.

Not sure if any members here live in that area of Europe and remember the winter of 2001, but it was COLD. You'd hear reports on the news of another "Russian Cold Front" coming in each day, and it blew away all but the coldest days that I can remember in the US Northeast. Now, I had to layer this coat with a thick sweater, scarf, and a heavy hat, but I can say that it kept me very warm. And I'm somebody who gets cold - I'm not one of these dudes who wears a henley and a Barbour in January and says that he's "toasty." This jacket is serious, and with the right layering pieces beneath, it should tackle winter in Toronto or London without a problem.

In terms of sizing, I'm a true 41R (that's what I take in our Southwick jackets). The 40 is a great fit on me, with or without the sportcoat underneath. And it's not skin tight, so I could still wear that size if I was a 42. The armholes are deep on this item, so it has no problem handling the extra layer. I'd drop 1 or 2" from your sportcoat size, the fit should be right on.

Is the blue/white stripes extra fine merino wool scarf ever going to be restocked? I was just trying to pick it up with the link I had saved, but it's not on your site anymore. frown.gif

Not that exact one, but we have some lighter and silk scarves coming from Germany this coming week. And plenty of wool and cashmere Johnstons ones to go around.

Dang, I really liked the design of that scarf. Nothing left hiding in the backroom? Hopefully one will pop up on B&S. Let us know when the ones from Germany come in - looking forward to seeing them!

I don't normally comment on outfits, but this is outstanding.
post #15889 of 37391
I agree with all of the comments NYR. You are looking very sharp here. Also, way to rock the toque! Us Canucks are proud!
post #15890 of 37391

Don't know if this has been asked yet, but is there any chance the french blue marl cardigan will be restocked in the near future? (before fall/winter ends)

I never thought that Camel Hair coat was a piece I needed in my wardrobe until now. That's an awesome look, man.

post #15892 of 37391
Camel hair is looking very warm and comfy. Good stuff, Rob.
post #15893 of 37391
Rob, that outfit looks smart as hell. I've been twirling the idea of buying that camel hair for some time.
post #15894 of 37391
Thanks for the comments guys, the blazer is sweet and perfect for the coming chill...

When it comes to chunky handknits, hand-washing can work better because they tend to stretch and conform to your body. But it's a bit of a gamble with a fine-gauge merino or cashmere. I wouldn't do it with my own sweaters.

Thanks Mike. I had it dry cleaned and have a follow up question... the collar and bottom hem both have sort of deformed like some kind of shrinking or wrinkling. I have seen this on one of my polos with the same type of bottom hem. Is this normal even when dry cleaned?

Hey Everyone!

 

The chill is in the air, officially. So I have 2 womens jackets I'm so excited about it and know your ladies will be too. Drop me a PM if you have any questions about fit, sizing, etc.

 

First off is our Keaton navy blazer we just launched on Friday, getting such a great response already. Yesterday I sold one to a woman who is 5'4", and I'm 5'9". I went through 4 samples on this to perfect the fit and make it as versatile a piece as possible for all ladies. 

 

 

Keaton Navy Blazer $595

 

Second is our special edition N3-B Snorkel Parka. It's totally a unisex style, in fact one of the perfect winter jackets I've been searching for. I've always loved these parka styles, but the shape is always off and the fabrics haven't been ideal. We finally just created the one we've been looking for with the originators Spiewak. I love wearing with jeans, but you can totally rock with a glam look too. I'm wearing with our new Audrey dress below.

 

Special Edition N3-B Snorkel Parka $375

 

Cheers,

Adele

Can Factory finds be made with side tabs?

Not that exact color, but we ran that same shape again for this season. I know that we added in some new color tones, and at least one cashmere model. Those should be here in about a week, two at most.

Hmm, that's weird. The sweaters are all wool, so there's nothing about the yarn that would require any special treatment. It sounds like your cleaner may have pressed it incorrectly. Feel free to PM me a pic, but if you're headed back to the cleaners, then I would definitely show it to them. Dry cleaning is absolutely safe for 100% wool garments, and your sweater should come out neatly pressed after the cleaning.

Not at the moment, but we're working on that for early next year.

Thanks

I hate to belabor the question, but any new shirts expected in the next week orso, especially the epaulet tartan flannels?
