I bought this jacket shortly after it came out to wear during my December vacation in South Beach. I paired it with a funky blue shirt and orange linen trousers from Epaulet/pink oxford cloth trousers from J. Crew, and received a lot of compliments. I think it would go great with the Japanese cotton special order trousers from Epaulet as well.
One thing to know is that the jacket has fade marks not unlike the LBM 1911 casentino wool coat. These marks are consistent with the casual vibe of the jacket, but makes it a bad match with a dress shirt, tie, and wool trousers. If you're going to stay casual, the jacket will be very versatile.
Agreed with this. The Chambray jacket is REALLY casual. I think that most LBM's can dress up very nicely, but this one is very soft and is better suited for a knit or a tie-less OCBD underneath it. Wear it with tan chinos, suede loafers, and a white henley and you'd be good to go.
Oh, good thing that we have a white henley coming out next month.
Haha, I hear you! We're working on all sorts of new Cali-friendly Fall goods.
Anyone have that chambray LBM jacket and want to comment on it? Very tempted. But also tempted to see what's coming in Samuelsohn for s/s. Fit in the Samuelsohn is really impressive to me.
Oh and @PorterInjax can't argue with you. Definitely a no brainer to pick up a piece like that with pretty much your choice of size.
Samuelsohn Spring is going to be freaking awesome. We've got three OTR jackets coming in and we'll launch the MTO program with them, which will be really comprehensive.
