Store open for 6-9 months, with a chance they'll stay afterwards depending on how things go.

Had a feeling it would be downtown.

So would it be safe to take a chance with that new blue donegal sport coat that came out. I normally take 42R US & 52EU.

 

Got hit with $190 of customs charges :violin:

That's why I'm intrigued to know how much they plan to charge at the NYC pop-up. I'm eying the cashmere gun club, which, given cashmere's vaulted status with US Customs, would cost an arm and a leg to import.

While many take issue with Drake's expanding from its traditional house-made offerings to become a lifestyle brand, I have to say that this fall's collection is outstanding.  If the idea is to be a one-stop shop for the Armoury aesthetic for guys that can't afford or aren't interested in collecting pieces from a range of makers (almost all of them at higher prices), they nailed it.  There's almost nothing in that collection that I wouldn't buy if I didn't have it already.  

 

Some favorites:

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

This just in. I'm hard to fit OTR, and it's by no means perfect but I'm debating keeping.

That's a really nice sport coat. Can only tell so much about fit from the photo, but seems fine...needs to be let out a bit in the waist. Who is making the sport coats for Drakes? I have a Summer weight Drakes sport coat from a few years ago and I seem to remember it was made by Caruso. But I could be mistaken.

Belvest is making this season's jackets, I believe.

@wigglr, what bry2000 said. Will loom great if you ease the waist a bit. How does it feel?

I bought one at the first NYC pop-up sale and it is definitely Caruso. Not sure about current models though.

Thanks. You may have the same one. Is yours a lighter than navy blue (almost royal) Summer weight (hopsack?)?

Tailored jackets are made by Belvest now.

Really, I mean at ~1000 GBP, it's more less the same price as Ring Jacket (maybe not the US Ring Jacket price)? I suppose you could take off 20% VAT via shipping here, not sure how much they will sell in their pop up shop.

Thanks all for the input. It actually fits very similar to ring 184 - but size down (drakes 52 fits me similar to ring 184 54).

The lapels have a very nice roll, and the shape/roll from lapel down to quarters is also nice when worn unbuttoned. It actually feels much looser than the picture indicates but may let it out a touch especially considering there may be a cardigan underneath if I can fit it.
