How warm are the f/w overcoats? Sufficient to keep you warm at below freezing without a suit or do you need a suit to keep you warm?

This happened to me as well. It is almost as if they (sales force) equate a tighter fit with a better fit. That having been said, once we did find one that fit...it the fit was sublime. They really do punch above their weight.

I had a similar experience. I went in to take a look around, I was given a 32r to try on in a suit. I couldn't get close to buttoning the jacket.

I've got a navy blazer for sale in the b&s thread. Pm me if you're interested.

Mods, I'll delete this if necessary. Thanks.

I bought a wool cashmere one and it hasn't been cold enough to justify wearing it until probably tomorrow. I'll let you know, but as an aside I do well in the cold so I might not be the best representation.

@OmniscientCause: many thanks and please do. Would be keen to also hear from others on wool or wool/cashmere coats.

That's the one I own. It's fairly warm, but definitely not heavy/blizzard-worthy. Today it was 28 degrees at one point, and I was wearing that overcoat, a blazer, and a scarf. I felt warm, but I was thankful for the blazer and scarf. Sans blazer, I'd want a rollneck/heavier turtleneck or sweater.

I have bought suits from the Amsterdam and DC store (napoli and lazio fits) they both fit the same measurement wise. It is really unsettling that they mark the suits up so high for us in the US compared to EU countries.

I have tried this one on in store and the fit was good, I just wanted to make sure there weren't huge variations between suits that were marked the same size.

This is the one I bought for reference when I check back in tomorrow

I own a DB wool/cashmere overcoat from FW13 and while it is very warm indeed I definitely think you need to layer up - either with heavy knitwear or a suit/blazer - to be warm enough at below freezing.

For reference, I wear it often between 0-10°C with a lightweight wool or cashmere knit underneath and a scarf.

I bought it in November. What would you like to know ? 

 

It sold out fast in Europe. 

 

Interestingly enough, I found almost 99.99% similar coat at Nodus and Hackett for at least twice the SS pricepoint... Well they did have fur around the cap.

@CaptainTohm and @davidazio: very helpful - many thanks!

hi all, I'm looking at the Washington half-lined grey plain. Does anyone have experience with this suit? Will it be too warm for summer? Thanks!
