How do you guys wash your tencel stuff? I have a pair of tencel flight pants but I'm not sure if I should just put them in the washing machine.

Anyone have one of those burgundy garment washed barracudas in a 48 that they just really hate and want to get rid of? Really regret not grabbing one

...What size did you get? If a 48 I'll grab it from you!

I have one in 50 available! :)

I would take anything in that washed burgundy/brick (except for the mac coat). The all in one, cargos, sebastian, baracuda, julius.... That colour was soo good all washed out. Pretty sure it was @keanswon who had the brick cargos that look awesome.

Who are these jackets for, anyway? I got (and am trying to pass on) a jacket that fits me perfectly in the chest and is too narrow in the shoulders, and I'm not exactly a broad-shouldered guy. Maybe it's just supposed to be loose in the chest on narrow-shouldered people?

My lats are concave and I love wearing Robert Geller.

See, I'd've thought it worked better for someone whose biceps were nonexistent but whose lats were somewhat substantial.

I've not encountered any geller items where the sleeves were truly slim.  I probably have sliiightly bigger gunz than your average 44

Don't know I got a recent denim jacket and those sleeves are hugging.

I've had plenty of troubles with Geller sleeves, actually...that and shoulders. The last-season denim jacket I had was too tight in the shoulders and just tight enough in the sleeves, but way big in the chest at the same time; a 46 Richard I just got is form-fitting through the sleeves and shoulders (not a good look), but when I got a 48 before, it fit me like a grandma cardigan; and an old frayed wool blazer I once had was perfect through the chest and body, but literally skintight in the sleeves; the Stefan bomber I just sold was as tight as I could go in the shoulders, yet still loose in the chest.

 

I'm resigned to the fact that I can't wear Geller on my upper body. I'll be the first to admit that I'm an unusual build - I'm a TTS 46 in the chest and body, but I've got very large delts, traps, and arms - and I can't wear anything Julius, and only a limited number of Rick pieces, just as examples. But even those come closer to fitting than Geller. 

 

It's too bad, because I'd love to get a zip blazer (among other things) in theory, but I know I'd have to size up to a 48 then have my tailor do a ton of work on it just to get it to fit right.
