How feasible, in terms of warmth, would the merino tweed overshirt be as my primary jacket, for the (sometimes not too harsh) depths of an English winter? Thanks

Oh, more than sufficient. It being called an overshirt is something of a misnomer: it is designed and built like a quite heavy jacket.

It is fully lined, with heavy melton, and the outer cloth is as thick a tweed as we've ever used. The sleeves are lined with cotton, too.

All in all, it is as thick and as heavy -- about 1.6kg -- as a warm winter jacket. The fact the tweed is made with merino ups the warmth stakes somewhat, too: very good for insulation, merino wool.

Thank you, very helpful! Just umming and ahing about sizing. All the measurements are saying small, but the advice to size down if not wanting to wear too much underneath is throwing me off a bit (wouldn't really wear much knitwear under it as I imagine, when rubbing against it, the melton lining would only worsen my aversion to pilling/bobbling).

A pleasure!

If you intend to wear it as a jacket -- heavy or light or otherwise -- rather than a shirt (over just, say, a vest or t-shirt) then I suggest you'd best go for your usual size, or the size whose measurements are closest to jackets that you own.

The discussion of wearing it as a shirt are, rather like the name of the thing itself, somewhat misleading on this occasion. In previous months, when we have the same garment in linen, and with a lightweight cotton lining, using it like a shirt is foreseeable. But given the make-up of this iteration, with the heft or the outer cloth and lining, then wearing it like a shirt (in between vest or skin and a jacket) is doubtful something anyone is likely to do.

Wonderful, I look forward to receiving the (just-now-ordered) small!

As stated above, after a couple more tries with a couple different pieces under, i'm very sad to say, I think this peacoat is a bit too snug for me.

 

Hopefully @sehkelly can comment on how long I have to return, but I am likely going to return it, but will open it up on the B&S here first for bit. Just looking to get back what I paid. For clarity, I have THIS peacoat, size Medium (currently sold out), navy wool. New and unworn, only tried on a couple of times briefly. Send me a PM if interested.

Seven days from receipt is the standard return policy (this would've been in your order confirmation email, fyi).

Shame it didn't work out for you, received mine today and the fit (along with everything else about the coat) is fantastic.

Not to worry -- you never know until you try, do you?

 

You've got all the time you need to decide. You know, within reason. Just let me know in the next week or so, if you can, at your convenience.

We do have a size S in stock, and there's a chance an XS will come back our way.


There's also the M which @Nakedsnake currently has on his hands -- doubly convenient if you happen to be in Canada.

 

Oh -- and here's a few new pictures of it being worn, while we're on the subject.

Looks a lot better worn.

Question for those that have them, or Paul if you can answer.. do any of the trousers have allowances to be taken in/out? Asking cause I'm about between M/L sizes.

They have the waist adjusters I guess, if opting for the larger size?

Hello there

There's certainly never any difficulty taking our trousers in ... but you'd only manage an extra half-inch if you tried to take them out. There's quite a lot of handiwork and unusual seam interplay, too, in the waistband and around the seat, so it isn't something I'd rush to recommend, unless you have a very good tailor to hand.

Our trousers do measure true, in that an M is a 34 which measures 34" around the waist (i.e. 17" across the waist when fastened and laid out flat). It might be worth comparing that to a couple of other trousers you wear.

Bear in mind a little stretch over time, too, especially with cotton (corduroy, moleskin). And yes -- as the chap above points out, there are button-tabs on the waistband of the "proper trouser" style, which enable you to rein in the waist by about two inches.

Hope that helps, but let me know if you've any qualms or quandaries or that sort of thing.

Paul

Beautiful. Thanks for the detailed reply Paul. Didn't realize the side adjusters 'adjusted' that much haha. I was looking at the proper trousers and the medium may in fact work then.
