Looking sharp, Simplicio.

Mike,

Could you give us some insight into how your want your sportcoats to fit? I've noticed that your jackets are on the shorter side. However, being a typcial 36S or 37S, your jackets would still be longer on me than the usual "tip-of-the-thumb" rule would indicate.

Do you have your own rule of thumb for the length of your jackets or do you think they look good even when the length follows the typcial rules?

Thanks,
Todd V

Are any of the Thorogood x Epaulet boots still available (US 8.5)? A pair for winter would be nice!
post #16674 of 32683

Just a quit question:

 

I'm looking to buying my second and third pair of rivet chinos (all duck chinos). My first pair was "french blue" which I have to keep myself from wearing weekly. But I was wondering what colors would be versatile to get as second and third pairs.

 

Was thinking about =

 

Brushed Graphite

 

Then either = 

Plum duck canvas

or 

Leaf duck canvas 

or

Caramel duck canvas

 

Which of these three would be a little more versatile for daily use?

 

I work at a VERY casual tech company with the only dress restrictions being no gym shorts or pajamas, so it's more about what would pair better w/ button downs and other articles of clothing. I should note that caramel looks really ugly to me, but who knows, I might get to like them.

These are great; I got mine almost exactly 2 years ago and they are still going strong. Great for winter as long as you're not in crazy levels of snow/wetness where you'd want something 100% waterproof.

You said caramel looks ugly, but if I had to pick only one pair of Rivets to wear for the rest of my life, it would be caramel. They pair great with just about anything you can think of.

Thank you sir! Sizing up is a good idea, this piece runs really slim.

i tried the parka on in store and 36 was a hair too tight and 38 fit about right for me.
thanks in advance.

Totally different vibe on them. We're actually completely sold out of the N-3B Parka in size 38.

But if you took that, chances are you'd be a Medium in the Monte Carlo. It's more euro-styled, can be dressed up better. Less bulky overall. It's very warm and totally waterproof. And most guys can layer a sportcoat underneath and wear it as an overcoat. It was a very good seller in our stores for 2 years, but somehow ran out of steam lately, so we've decided to discontinue the brand. At $250, it's a great bargain and a hard one to beat for a tough, warm, waterproof winter coat.

Ahhh man, that's a good idea! I was thinking Navy Suede as a possibility too.

Looking good! That Harris Tweed SC is spot on for you.

Sure thing. In the world of traditional sportcoats, our Southwick jackets fit about an inch shorter than usual in the body. Sleeve length is regular.

In practice, this doesn't make the jackets look short or Thom Browne-ish. It just makes them a little more modern IMO than something totally conservative like the Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald.

This applies to only the Southwick for Michael Kuhle line. The Marcello was a different beast entirely, and that is definitely short and tight.

The length depends on your height, the length of your torso, and how you like a jacket to fit. It's different for everyone. I have a guy who's 6'4" who special orders long sleeves but keeps the body regular because he likes the super-cropped look.

But if you feel that our OTR length is longer than you like, we can easily special order you a short if we have the cloth. Takes 4-6 weeks for delivery and it costs an extra $50. You can always drop us a PM if you'd like to do it. We make about 30 special orders a month, so it's a pretty easy process.

Looks like we have exactly ONE pair left. After that, there ain't no more!

oh, wow! thanks....I live in SF, so no real extreme conditions. Just rain....any comment on sizing? I'm a true US 9, but wear 8.5 in Clarks DB and New Balance and some vans.

Mike,

Just like above any suggestions on sizing.....Would like to buy this last pair, but want to make sure they're the right size, assuming there is no return on sale items. Thanks!

For reference: True US 9, but wear 8.5 in Clarks DB and New Balance and some vans.
post #16679 of 32683

dude it says right there in the item description:

 


"If you own a pair of Clarks Desert Boots, we'd recommend ordering the same size (ex. buy a 10D Thorogood if you wear a 10D Clarks Desert Boot)."

 

post #16680 of 32683
I picked up a size 9 a few weeks ago. I wear an 8.5 in clarks db and could have fit in a size 8.5 thorogood just fine.
These boot fit excellent. They feel better than alden indy boots as far a foot cushion. They also hold your feet at a great angle if you have to stand in one place for a long time. I've been working in them every day and really like them.

I hope you do a pair of light colored shoes soon.
