Pretty comfy piece, though note sizing is 50 = M not 48 = M. Lined sleeves and super soft sweater like material.
Also got the contrast sleeve Neil Barrett not on site anymore but similar photo from Yoox, armholes too high for me though which sucks as piece is super nice too. Arms are a little baggy though. Feels half canvassed too which is nice
Neither, it's a dark blue navy haha
Color was same as my MBA screen for me
Hi everyone, would appreciate some advice on a blazer purchase. I'm looking for an everyday/staple blazer, preferably in grey (a color I gravitate towards to now, and I'm not big on black blazers), and suitable/comfortable enough for hot and humid 80-90 degree weather, up to $450 in range. I'm in my mid-30s and for streetwear I wear solid pattern button-downs and v-neck tees in neutrals and blues with lightweight jeans or duck canvas chinos (typically in grey, dark blue or beige) and derbies, boots or plain sneaks. My previous main blazer was this one...
...but now looking for something kind of...different. Maybe something with a style and color (not necessarily fabrics) like this:
Suggestions appreciated, thanks.
Well, so far I am failing miserably:
I bought a Barena from Yoox which I returned because it was too small (although in my usual size L/50).
Today I received an EG Bedford in L. This one I like very much, however, it is too big.
At least I now know what you meant. They are indeed completely different, which I could not realize from the images.
Umit AW12 wool
Rei AW06 boiled polyester

The jacket is a two button closure with a classic notch lapel. The left upper boutonniere buttonhole is present as well and functional. The torso is contoured on the sides and back for a sharp and slim fit. All pockets are fully lined and functional and the waistpockets are double welted.
The jacket is unlined to showcase the details of the fabric and pocket construction on the interior. Single vented.
The pants are zip fly, and close at the waist with a single button. A classic CDGH quirk is that the right seat pocket is buttonless (not even a button hole present) while the left is a functioning button closure. Side slash pockets are fully lined as well.
The pants are straight cut and can be worn rolled up slightly for the cropped/classic CDGH look if desired. Also easy to tailor and slim down if desired.
The wool texture is incredible. On the panels, the texture alternates between an almost felted look and feel and a denser, coarser look and handfeel. The parts that run along seams or follow the seams appear to almost have the wool “worn away” exposing a more structured weave and material beneath it. This is seen along the edges of the pockets, along the torso seams as well as beautifully around the shoulder and arm holes. This is also seen running down each leg reminiscent of a tuxedo stripe in some ways.
The suit was fully constructed and then boiled to give it the final look and feel. The material weight is medium and since it is unlined, doesn’t retain heat and much as if it were to be fully lined. Very much a warm suit and perfect for fall/winter.
A few that have caught my eye.
Lien's first A/W season jacket and pants.

Love the soft materials, with the slouchy ease and comfort of both pieces. Might get the pair of them.
The Shellac piece is currently 50% off. Never handled Shellac before, so not too sure of quality.
