Many thanks.  This is very good to know, as this the Somelos is the best-fitting stock EP shirt I've had--resolves my between-sizes issues.

I had my pair destroyed by a family member's dog - one of the saddest days I can remember. A super versatile style, and just unique enough to be interesting.

@nickpapagiorgio excellent - glad that you like it so much! We'll have new colors and options next month

A few questions as this is my first DB
1. What the heck do I wear this with - Rivets, Walts, Taylor? Don't say jeans...
2. For a DB do I need any alterations?

It's insanely soft and comfortable. Got to hand it to Mike for hitting this one out of the park.

Perhaps I need to wait for the Rudy bottom...



 

@tricky thanks for picking up the coat and glad that it worked out for you! Thoughts from my side: 

 

1) Jacket is a boss fit on your overall. Shoulder and sleeve looks great. The DB shape really works well for guys with muscular builds, so I thought it was going to be a great shape for you. 

 

2) Button is pulling a bit, but I think that's just how you're standing. As other guys said, you can always slide the button a touch. Not sure if you have the "jigger" button done on the inside, but that will also help to keep the front straight and eliminate some pulling. 

 

3) I terms of wearing it, DB's are more dressy than an SB, but most of the same things match them. My top choices to wear with this are: 

- Grey trousers - be it hopsack, flannel, tweed, flat wool

- Dressier chinos and cotton pants. I think that Rivets in more conservative colors are right on

- Jeans can be done, but I'd stick with either distressed or white jeans. Navy DB and white jeans is a hardcore Pitti Uomo look, but for good reason - it looks dope. I think you could rock the hell out of that jacket with a pair of light wash or distressed jeans and a white shirt. Very fresh look. 

 

4) You lose a little bit of versatility on wearing it open. IMO, double breasted jackets look a little sloppy when they're open, although some #menswear guys seem to pull it off. SB jackets look just fine worn open. But a DB - especially one like this that fits you so well - is really striking and cool in a way that a SB never will be. I think you're wearing it really well!

There are probably no alterations that are necessary.

Seriously well done, looks fantastic!

 

@justinkapur speaks the truth!

@Patrick R we're looking at end August for the next Cramerton round. Unfortunately we won't have any Stone for that delivery, but we did develop a new gunmetal grey color - which is our best-selling tone in 8oz canvas.

@epaulet thanks!

Just located this "jigger" button. Who knew...

First spin in the navy seersucker suit. Super happy with it. But I might take it in for some additional work along the collarbone. Tailor adjusted the back of the neck but some unevenness on the collarbone may have popped up.

@tricky haha, we were all DB noobs at some point! It's a big help with keeping the front in line.

@dalevy thanks for posting up the fit - it looks really sharp on you! Glad that you're pleased with it.

For those sleeping on the LBM jackets in the sale section it's an incredible piece...

I have the khaki and green. They are my favorite chinos - no offense to your canvas, duck canvas, and other offerings. I will have a hard time not buying them in any color you make (I want stone and mid-brown ASAP).

@Patrick R ah I'm with you, I freaking love Cramerton Cloth. I still have two pairs of Rudy trousers from our initial 2011 run of them. The gunmetal color is gonna be pretty tight when it comes in.

Really nice match with the shirt & chinos! @tricky

Bought the gunmetal canvas Rivets because Mike mentioned a few weeks ago that there will be no gray Cramertons. Should've waited. =(

For me, one of the best features of the Cramertons is the lack of the superfluous herringbone stripe on the outer seam.
