I'd take a 40 in a southwick coat myself, but a lot of it for me is chest/shoulder areas I need the room for. Sleeves/length are fine for me though. I'm a 33" in all my ep pants and a medium in shirting(although they tend to be a little snug in the chest shoulder areas which is why I may just stick to individualized from here out to make those small adjustments)

This is really helpful. It sounds like we're similar. I wear medium in EP shirts and they're snug in the chest and I can't button the collar but I like how they fit overall.

I'm also a 33 in EP pants though I've started moving to 34...not for the waist so much but to accommodate the top block.

Perhaps 40 will work and I can bring in the back or sides as needed.

Thanks again for the reply.

I go from San Francisco, where it's usually sweater weather most of the year to other parts of the bay area that can be much hotter or colder in the same day. I guess what I'm asking is, I know that seersucker is better for hotter temps. How do they compare for cooler temps? 

 

The surface texture of the seersucker is prety intriguing though. 

 

Both would probably do the job. The Navy Poplin will look more polished - when it's pressed, it can give off a navy suit look. 

The Seersucker will always look more casual and laid back, but that might be what you're looking for. 

 

Personally, I love the tonal seersucker. It's very comfortable and wrinkling isn't an issue. It makes for great separates too. I'd rather travel in that.

I think I might be leaning toward tonal seersucker, haven't seen that before and I'm looking for casual but could also work in business casual. I'll see what else you have in store. If you have a heavier fresco/hopsack in the right shade, I might have to go with that.

@tricky Not sure if this helps but, I wear size 38 for most things (e.g. SuitSupply), but wear Epaulet Southwick in a size 40 due to the shoulders.

@tricky go for a 39 in the Unconstructed shoulder, I think that's going to be right on for you

 

The measurements are going to jive, but you've got two things in your favor: 

 

1) Your shoulders can fill it out more, effectively giving you more room 

2) The soft lining in the lapel will drape over your chest better

 

We saw this with the Vittorio jacket. Due to its softer construction, it worked better for a range of physiques. And it works especially well for guys with muscular builds.

The Southwick EFF notwithstanding, just a heads up to everyone that the (unofficial) Gitman shirting EFF is closing today and it looks like the Midnight Madness Tattersall is newly available. I've handled that swatch in person in store and it's an amazing fabric. FYI!

@Epaulet is this restriction for all Southwick EPNY jackets, or just the Ends round? The jacket in the above photo was ordered as partially-lined but it's got lining all the way down the back. Going to dispatch an email to Adele & Co. after I finish posting this. smile.gif

 

@cyclohexane I just want to quote this with the photo so that we can celebrate how freaking rad white pearl buttons on blue linen is. That is phenomenal!

 

And I think that the answer is: Southwick CAN do a partial lined DB, but they cannot do it for the EFF promo fabrics.

@Epaulet
Thanks for the kind words, Mike!

Time to lay off the junk food so my DBs button up more comfortably. wink.gif

Did you say there were red and blue doeskin swatches still in the pipeline? I always like looking. biggrin.gif

Looking at the Gauzy Rainbow, what do you guys think about patch pockets vs. inset?

I love it. I was torn b/w that and navy seersucker but I can't get enough of navy sportcoats.

Went in thinking navy suit and ended up with the Reda Milano check. Unstructured with patch pockets and blonde horn buttons. Fills a hole in my sport coats.

I'm surprised there hasn't been more love here for the olive hunting check.  That's a perfect shade--really sweet colors--and pairs easily with a lot.  My only hesitation is the tropical wool.  I see olive check and I think fall/winter.

Just placed an order for a SC in this. I went with inset because it's what I prefer. I think it could however make up pretty nice with patch.

I too am eyeing the seersucker hard, probably won't be able to resist but going to sleep on it and see if it's there in the am...
