Mike, I might need to firm up my right size and any other adjustments on these since I've never purchased a sportcoat from you before. Can I just buy to hold a fabric and follow up with sizing specs by email after the fact?

I was thinking the same thing. This cloth has Eddie McZee perfection written all over it though, which is why I ordered it!

Going to sleep on things. Debating three possibilities: (1) the Hardy Minnis light grey 4 season, (2) the lighter weight grey open weave fresco, or (3) neither. Would get a ton of use out of it even I don't "need" another suit. Most likely will do the fresco or neither, since 99% of my suit-wearing is actually in the summer.

Proud of myself for only buying one suit and one jacket so far.

Of course, the last EFF I was trying to replace almost EVERYTHING, and this time I'm just looking for a few cool things. biggrin.gif

I wonder if Mike has any fabrics left to surprise us with or if we're all done. Hopefully nothing too bonkers.

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

 

@cyclohexane yup, I'll have those online tomorrow. The blue is very light and the red is a Nantucket red. Probably best for Sportcoats.

@tricky great choice on the navy seersucker, I think that it's going to jive really well with your other pieces. 

 

For reference, here's a pic of an old Ovadia & Sons suit, made by Southwick in the same fabric:

@kickstand excellent! The REDA Milano is so fantastic, you're going to love how it feels in person. It's going to look really boss with those pockets and buttons

@Irish it's been a popular one with sales - we've sold about 6 coats and 2 suits in it so far. 

 

You're absolutely right though, it's an interesting combo of FW colors with SS weight. I'm personally a big fan of this - I love wearing dark tartans and blackwatch in lightweight madras yarns. I think that it would look rad as a summer jacket with very light chinos or jeans. Even shorts.

 

It's also a great option for anyone who lives in a warm climate and wants to rock some darker colors.

@eljlakers yup, that's not problem, just make a note to "hold for sizing confirmation" and we won't submit anything until we nail it down.

@cyclohexane haha, most of the bonkers pieces are up by now, and you grabbed the king of bonkers by a mile (Floral Chambray)

 

Given the other two, I'd advise the Open Weave Fresco given the climate. It's a great suit to travel with as well. And if you make up the jacket with open patch pockets, I think that it can work just fine as a sportcoat with odd trousers. The Hardy Minnis 150s is definitely a suit fabric, and it would be harder to pair that jacket with anything other than the matching pant.

I have been considering pretty much the same makeup for a casual check sportcoat.  @Epaulet, how is the weight on this?  Would it be light enough for spring/summer?

post #53414 of 57690

Question for you fellas and @Epaulet going with the Navy seersucker - what are you doing for the details? I was thinking unconstructed shoulder, brown horn, patch pockets but wasn't sure about the breast pocket: patch or welt?  

I picked up a trad Navy suit from an early Southwick EFF but this Navy seersucker seems to have a lot going for it, both as a suit and as separates.

 

Thanks

I'd go welt up top and patch on the hip pockets
