AW13 preview is out and you're talking about H&M.  What's wrong with you guys today?

You can add Cro'Jack to that list.

I don't get the impression it's a pure replica though - it's looks more inspired to me.

 

 

Agreed on both counts.  I got mine at over 60% off though so I'm not sweating price so much.  I'm confident I could get my money back too. 

 

Yes, inspired is more accurate.  However it's very near a replica, at least the Bowers is.

Just a heads up, I've listed the classic blue Cameraman in B & S.
As I said, I'm happy to keep this but if I can get the asking price I'm getting a Crazy.

This is kind of a strange question, but just got a Mallory today, love it, but I'm wondering how I should store it. Normally for outerwear I don't really store that stuff on cedar hangers and in suit bags. How are you guys storing this day to day?

No suit bag, wear it too often this time of year. Do store it on a wooden coat hanger with wide/contoured shoulders though. Will put it in a suit bag w/ cedar blocks come spring.

Got both of the Classic Mallorys I ordered today, and let me tell you "classic" they are.  IMHO they're beautiful pieces.  I'm very impressed and while I knew I liked the Mallory, you have to see and feel it in person.  As has been said in this thread, including by myself before actually seeing it in person, it's more more of an outerwear piece as opposed to a traditional blazer.  I went with both the Black Brown and Green colors.  Flannels listed, and indeed the tag on the garment does so as well, the Green as "Khaki."  I don't see anything khaki about it really.  Both colorways are fantastic.  I was particularly excited for the Black Brown having seen it in photos and loving it.  It does not disappoint.  Black brown is an accurate description, though it's a bit more brown.  Only a bit though and I think the ventile shoulder patches help with this.  I think "black brown" is more so saying that shade of brown as opposed to "brown brown".  It's like with a lot of the Cabourn navy this year, which was "Black Navy."  There is plenty of black in the weave though, and even a very small amount of blue which is a great touch.  It's a herringbone pattern which also very nice and lends itself well to the black and brown colorway.  The Green is not a herringbone and is definitely green.  There's some brown mixed in with the tweed, but it definitely looks more green.  Interestingly enough the ventile on both jackets is the same color, but it definitely chameleons looking more green on the Green Mallory and a taupe on the Black Brown. The finishes on both are top notch.  Buttons are amazing and I'm total button snob.  You really see the finish details in the seams though.  The seam in the arm where the tweed meets the ventile is perfect.  Lined up absolutely perfectly.  Both the tweed and the ventile feel very rich.  The cotton lining is nice and I like that they did "silky/satiny" sleeves like a typical blazer as opposed to continuing the cotton so your sleeve slides right in.  The tags on the inside are all nice and look Cabourn.  So that left putting it on.  Well I've spent a good half hour at least trying them on.  I ordered 52s based largely on the measurements I've seen online but also based on a few fit pics.  My initial thought trying it on was that it felt fine in the chest and shoulders, my usual problem area, but big everywhere else.  It was as though I'd need that 52 up top, but it bloused out too much below.  I also noticed the vent, still sewn shut, stuck out a bit odd.  So I cut it and it looked the same.  I also felt as though the sleeves were a bit long.  It's tough trying to fit it because in your mind, or at least in my mind, I'm thinking blazer for the fit even though I'm wearing it as outerwear.  So I started looking online for a 50 somewhere.  I found one rather quickly, but thought for a second that I should try it on again.  So after a few back and forths between colorways I thought "well you're only wearing a t-shirt meathead" and threw on a donegal v-neck sweater I have which is of a medium weight.  Instantly the Mallory seemed to fit.  Shoulders and chest were on, maybe a smidge snug but only a smidge in the chest, and the sleeves didn't seem as long.  However the outer part of the back vent still stuck out.  So I felt much better about the 52 being the only size for me.  However I'm still mulling over some details.  Two slight alterations I'm thinking about:

 

1  Having the vent sewn shut.  This would be from the inside, you wouldn't even know it and you'd be able to get this "undone" if needed or desired.  Only concern I have is the inner part of the vent will stick out with the outer part then as opposed to the desired affect of the opposite. 

2  Taking up the sleeve maybe 1/4".  Ever so slight.  I'm a bit worried about finding the right tailor for this, but I think it'll help with the sizing look of it.  

 

At the end of the day I'm torn about those last two minor details, but overall it's a great piece and I really love it.  I would highly recommend the Mallory anyone considering it. 

 

On a side note, looking at the Crazy Mallory online it's a combo of the two colorways I bought.  The top pocket and the back are different, but the majority of the Crazy is a half and half combo of the Black Brown and Green ("Khaki").

MoK, did you get that Mallory yet?  Was it a 54?  I'm guessing that'd be the best fit for you.

Yes - I went for the 54 and I'm pretty happy with the fit over a sweater. I might have got away with a 52 with just a shirt, but I think even then it would be snug. Still trying to find a reduced waistcoat in green or brown to go with it - will definitely want a 54 in the waistcoat/vest.

Oddly, I can fit a 50 Mallory jacket, but can hardly button up a 52 Mallory waistcoat.

The waistcoats do seem to be almost a size down on the label compared with the jackets
post #2458 of 5274

Yeah, the waistcoats are definitely on the fitted side.  Mallory if a 52 layered is fine, but I can barely button a 52 waistcoat.  I'd definitely be a 54 waistcoat, but then the length might be too long.

On a side, maybe related note, the womens Camerman looks amazing.
