I feel like the switch from Turkey to China on their suits and some other items (like the pea coats) is a significant loss in quality. Anyway, I've found my Turkish FW14 pea coat to be very warm, but I'm living in a much warmer climate than you.

I really like the Lieutenant Coat you linked to.

My tag said Made in Turkey.

SHell is 80% wool 20% polyamide. Fit is awesome of course but just that warm in my books. THen again, this is coming from a sterlingwear peacoat lol

Lol. No.

Do they make Grant fit stuff anymore? I got that Grant fit grey hopsack trousers to wear as odd trousers in the summer, and after tailoring, it's great. But I don't see any more of that fit. I actually bought it much earlier this year.

I like it cause the rise doesn't seem to be very short, so it works out as I like higher rises.

Haven't bought anything lately, but as winter is coming, I'm keeping at eye on sweaters at CM and J. Crew.

Tried on both peacoats. The Navy from this year has little armhole than previous years. Which is a GOOD thing as previous years it was way too damn tight.

The other difference is that it's a tad longer in the body, another good thing.

The olive peacoat felt heavier and warmer. I would buy when they go on sale. Not worth it at $400 and $600.

Did you notice where they are manufactured?

Slightly lower (?) armhole and longer length would be welcome changes. I've had several compliments on the fit of my peacoat, but personally think that they went a bit too extreme with the armholes and the length could be longer for the size, given my height.

They definitely still make Grant fit suits. At least, they still have Grant suits listed at full price, which I assume means they are new.

I have been loving the made in USA suits and sport coats. I've purchased quite a few at great discounts. The quality for the price is pretty amazing IMO.

I mean't slightly lower yes.

I forgot to check where it was made though. I can call tomorrow and find out. It;s 80% wool and 20% polyamide, same as previous models. Also it has a strap that goes around your face, I guess to block wind

I personally liked the high armholes. Maybe slightly less comfortable, but the aesthetic is much sharper. Same can be said of the older grant fit suits with the slimmer fit in comparison to this "new grant fit". Club used to fill the void of decent quality, slim-cut clothing, but it's been moving away from that as of late to please the average consumer. In my opionion, there's already plenty of "made for america" fits to be had at the gap and BR.

Are you gents buying anything? I bought some basics (chinos and merino sweaters), but nothing very interesting. I did buy a nice looking Alpaca wool sweater, but already received an out-of-stock email.

Right now you're getting 30% off sale stacked with the Black Friday sale.

I bought a sweater for my wife, along with a couple merino crewnecks. At this stage, there isn't really much that I need. For me, the alpaca sweaters had too much synthetic stuff in them, so I skipped. It's the same blend that they're using in those sweaters and scarves.

Nada.

Picked up a Made in USA sportcoat (navy), 3 bowties, and a pair of trousers.

Anyone tried the new Bennett chinos? I just bought 4 pairs. I've bought many pairs of the Davis chinos and like them a lot, so I'm hoping the Bennetts are a good replacement.
