I also get the impression that lapel width was standardized across sizes, but maybe there is some variation on the extreme ends. I seem to recall my lapels measuring 2.75" on my size 34s and that being the same for the larger sizes as well. Hopefully Mike can chime in and let us know.

Thanks that would be awesome if they're wider by about half an inch. One of my older EPxSouthwick SCs was about 3" or maybe 3.25" if I recall correctly, so anywhere between 3.5" - 3.75" would be great.

Actually I just got the jacket, not the full suit. Open patch hip pockets, tan horn buttons, 3-roll-2 buttoning, unconstructed shoulder, 3/8 lined...should work as a nice alternative to just a standard navy blazer. Sort of an FU version of a regular blazer.

The more I catch up with this thread, the more I'm saddened that I didn't pick up the 8 Track Umber. So dope.

If that was me, then all I can say in my defence is:

 

Ends For Friends January 2016 Harris Tweed - Harris Tweed Toasty Herringbone
Sportcoat Style: Single Breasted, 3-Roll-2 Button, Unconstructed Shoulder
Sportcoat Size: 38
Sportcoat Length: Long (1" Longer)
Rear Vents: Double Vented Rear (Side Vents)
Button Color: Brown Horn (U3)
Pocket Styling: Welt Breast Pocket, Hip Inset Flap Pockets
Sleeve Length: Long (1" Longer)
Sleeve Finish: Buttons sewn on but not functional
Sportcoat Full or Partial Liner: Full Lining
Lining Fabric: Dove Dots (605)
Add a Trouser? : Add Trouser for a 2-Piece Suit (+$250)
Walt Trouser Size: 32
Epaulet Trouser Fit: Walt Trouser
Trouser Inseam Length: 38" UNFINISHED
Choose your Waistband Details: Belt Loops (Standard)

 

At 38" I'll have to get a false double cuff put on the trousers to get a good size - that worked well on a similar pair of (very) thick tweed trousers picked up in an earlier EFF trouser event. Re: the cloth, I picked up a jacket second hand in a very similar fabric some years back, but it turned out to be way too large for me (marked 38L; more like 40 Extra long). The EFF cloth looks nicer as well  - definitely more toasty :)

@pekingman

Ahh.... very nice. I'm having a heck of a time figuring out what this will look like made up. I may have to pay the price of admission to find out.

@chrispy650 it definitely looks slim -- slimmer than I like. The pulling on the bottom button is telling. If I were you, I'd take out the back darts. A very close look will probably reveal stitch lines once they're out, but on a pattern like that it'll likely be nigh impossible to see.

 

Just got back from a warm sandy beach where I wore my old Liberty chrysanthemum shirt almost every day. What a shirt!

Thanks for the suggestion. I do see what you mean with the pulling on the bottom button. You think that will have a big effect on the overall shape of the shirt? It look the dart is ~0.25" so I believe that would be ~1" more fuller in the body? Never actually taken darts out of a shirt before.

@Todd V

Probably doesn't help much, but I think the jacket will make up something between these two (the first is a BB jacket; the second is Southwick for O'Connells). I'm not sure I'll wear the full suit that often, but the trousers will definitely get plenty of use (and not too much concern about wear mismatch jacket and trousers for that kind of cloth).

I'm wondering if the Ironside alt wiens would work with a grey pique suit from the first Southwick EFF
Suit fabric is textured and may work with the rough out of the reverse chamois, but I just can't tell - I think the Ironsides may look too casual.

Any thoughts or photos of similar?

Thx fells

@RuleOfRescue it's definitely a quirky match. I don't think you'd find too many guys on SF pairing these two, but you could absolutely see something like this in Free & Easy. I think that you could make it work, but I'd keep the shirt casual - maybe an oxford or something with texture.

@kwhitelaw we're still waiting on that, and I think it's a general lack of natural cxl at Alden. We just got the Indy about a month ago, but that was a remake of an existing style. It should be coming through pretty soon though

@theh00d sorry, we don't have makeup photos for anything really - all of them are pics of the fabric.

@Todd V it's a beautiful color, and pretty rare to find. Most of the Harris herringbones in tan tones will be more in the yellow/golden family. This one is more of an even brown, and you can see that it has streaks of orange running through it. Overall, the vibe is going to be a subdued tan/khaki sportcoat. Great match with grey, navy, olive, dark brown, and indigo pants and jeans.

Question - I may have missed the conversation happening when the Southwick EFF first launched last week, but are the lapels slightly wider on this new shape? How big would it be on a 42 x-long? Around 3.5" maybe?

 

@Beatlegeuse you're going to love it, the LP Windowpane is so boss! Works great as a separate jacket too. 

 

And yes, we're going to make all of the lapels 0.5" wider than they used to be. The trend is a bit wider these days, so we'll speak to that - but it shouldn't be a jarring change for anyone who already owns one of our coats. 

post #50457 of 57687
Awesome thanks Mike. Most of my other jackets have really big lapels (like 4.25"), so these will still be smaller than those but not too narrow for me. Anything less than 3.5" is probably a little too narrow for my tastes, so I'll definitely dig the slightly wider one on these new jackets.

@Epaulet can you upload all the sample pics so that we can drool over what we missed?

My two cents as an owner of the shoes: the ironside alt wiens are pretty casual on the Alden spectrum. Between the material, the commando sole, the welt, and the Barrie last, I can't see myself wearing them with a suit, especially a "flatter" or worsted suiting material. Maybe moleskin pants and a tweed jacket on a really crappy weather day. But otherwise, it would look pretty incongruous to me. But I tend to stick pretty tightly to dress shoes with suits, more rugged shoes with casuals. For instance, you wouldn't find me ever rocking oxfords and jeans.

post #50460 of 57687

I have had two different Southwick EFF jackets in my cart at various points over the last week (Olive Marl and Alistair's Ancient Check), and I just can't pull the trigger. Hell, I'm not even sure either of them are still available. But more to the point, I don't need another jacket, money's too tight to mention, and I haven't nailed down my size on EP suiting yet, so I'm just going to (very) reluctantly sit this one out. I'll be cursing you all in 4-6 weeks.
