Thanks. I've actually been kind of obsessing over the idea of going back and getting a size M jacket. The small fits great everywhere in the conventional sense, but isn't quite as slouchy as I would like.
I don't think they pay attention to the branding because its stamped on the fabric rolls straight outta production. The patterns probably aren't cut in any specific way either. Usually uniform serge is lined so this issue is not that common. I love my uniform serge bedford, its warm but still breathes better than my whipcord cotton bedford surprisingly.
Yeah I see what you're saying. The only reason I even brought it up was that I had seen a few stockist photos that had a visible watermark when cuffed, which led me to believe it might be an intentional detail.
