^ good to know, thank you for that (0)

i actually really like my suit being as my first one.

specifically, material could be thicker but for such a large retailer and OTR, it is understandable.

The mid/high stance* is usually an older aesthetic - APC suiting still uses it and if you pay attention, APC besides denim is basically 70's wear made slimmer. It's not, by default, a bad look. If you look around a lot of modern suiting has a deep as your waist stance which is just as bad. As an FYI, the three button suit is considered "older" and out of fashion compared to the two button these days, and the four to five button should never be considered.
*If you want to get all MC about it, stance should be called gorge (the depth of the V cause by the button stance).

Welp the Jil thing is true but button stance has been trending higher for at least a decade in MCish brands? Low button stance is one of the main signs of a jacket looking really dated.

Also, from my experience, gorge here (on MC) is taken primarily to mean the height of the notch in the lapel, although if you google it it can mean both.

Can anyone confirm and tell me what price? I would love to proxy this if it's still available for a lower price.

^ Take a look at the website.

It's $130 for the peacoat.

Maybe dumb question, but will things in the UK shop eventually show up in the US shop?
post #1554 of 11700
any thoughts on the quality of the premium wool suits? I believe the jacket feels acceptable but the pants are too cheap.

Would like a US proxy to California for this pair of pants:

Anyone notice difference between the premium wool vs. tasmanian wool other than one is 100%? Talking about the pants mentioned above.
post #1558 of 11700
Non-chunky knitwear quality any good? Price for say a basic cardigan varies $100 depending on if it's +J or not... would hope there's a difference in material. Just looking for a basic cashmere cardigan and maybe a crew neck sweater.
post #1559 of 11700
premium wool seems like a FW only pants as it is some thick wool compare to tasmanian which is more of an all around type of pants.
