Would you say it's a fall/winter weight jacket as the website states? I live in California so would prefer something I can wear year round. Thx.

very very tempted on that desmond--I do need a sport coat, but final sale on a sport coat is worrisome (especially being 6'5"--it might end up being really young on me). also, what are people's feelings about 3 button coats? I used to wear 3 button suits but have gone more in the 2 button direction recently. hrmm.... the caine is also calling my name, but if it doesn't fit, that's $650 in store credit I'd have to blow through (not that that would be hard to do, just not the best idea!). I guess there's always the buy/sell forum.

Got my pine (was calling them olive) trousers on today. Also really nice. I like the feel and color cast--they are grey one moment and green the next. definitely snazzy, and not too thick.

^Epaulet has a 2 week return policy on full-priced items for SF members, so you wouldn't be out $650, just how much return shipping would cost.

I wear it year round. I'm actually in California right now and wore it the other weekend. (I think they just released it this past fall -- that's when I got it.)

i also snagged that blue & white gingham. i've been eyeing it for a while and was going to wait for my next paycheck but then i saw this on valetmag.com and got scared of my size being sold out. this is the beginning of an addiction... confused.gif

The blue and white gingham is nice. I held off for a bit because of the cutaway color but now that I have it, I really like it.

Just got my pine trousers a couple of days ago. Won't be able to have them altered until next week sometime but so very glad I picked them up.

I really need to start posting some fit pics...it's just between a new job, travel, life etc. etc. haven't carved out the time to snap the photos.
KG and Stanvan have set the bar quite high also...

Sounds like a bunch of us have the pine trousers - just got mine today!  It's a pretty new color for me - any ideas or suggestions on what to pair with them?

post #6281 of 36535
If anyone has a size 36 in either the worsted pine or tangerine/orange linen for sale, please PM me. I missed on both.

Also, how did I miss the Desmond in 42??? Again, please PM me if you have one for sale.

Agreed. I was gonna wear my blue and white duckie brown saddle shoes, but it was a family reunion and i didn't want a bunch of my relatives telling me "you've changed!"

anything? i dunno, seems pretty versatile. wore mine today with a blue striped OCBD. Tan desert boots dressed it down, coulda put on a pair of brown wingtips to dress it up a bit more. I think they'll look pretty sick with my oxblood docs. For shirts, blue, cream, grey, white, reds, maybe certain browns or greens even, all seem like it would work.

From what I've been told, it'll be sticking around in one form or another. It's a really cool shape and design that's different from the Southwick jackets in a few really cool ways. However, that said, the difference in construction between the Desmond and the Weller is noticeable with lighter-weight fabrics. The half-canvassing on the Weller really helps the jacket keep its shape around the lapels when not buttoned. The Desmond lacks this. With heavier fabrics, this is much less of an issue.

 

I think Mike posted earlier in the thread that he was toying with the idea of making the Desmond into more of an outerwear piece. Last I heard he's definitely planning on doing something with it -- not discontinuing it. As to what that is, it didn't sound like he'd yet made a decision (or just wasn't going to reveal it yet wink.gif).

 

Of course, I said he ought to do it in the tan moleskin. But I am a crazy person who wears plaid pants in July.
