I don't remember the fit of Quorum well but V4 and G2 couldn't be more different pieces. V4 is a finer gauge knit, light to medium weight, quite a bit of spring to it, fits slim and I think if it as a middle layer only. G2 is chunky, fuzzier, fits like a jacket (side pockets) and I would imagine wearing mostly like that and more rarely as a middle layer. So, the fit is intended to be different and even though I would take my normal VI size in both, they would look different on me. I know some people sized down G2 because they didn't like the longer, chunkier fit - you should go through the fit pics in the Schneider thread to determine if you like the fit.

(I somehow forgot about this option at the trunk show)

No. Inglese MTM is based on standard size with incremental modifications. Can only be done if you get to try sizes in person (showroom or trunk shows) and we can decide together the adjustments ; or if you already have one and know exactly what you'd adjust. We don't do online MTM for anything (take a look at the tailor fit thread for 100s of reasons why) and we only agree to remote orders if the customer has tried the fit on.

A 38 in Monitaly mixed media baseball jacket...would make it what size in the mountain parka? Any idea?

Not c4est but I wear the same size in the 5-zip as the wool-lined winter mountain parka. I would size down 1 for the spring mountain parka (unlined, tent fabric)

Greg,  what color trousers would you pair this with in the summer? Thanks

The easiest way to match trousers (and sometimes ties too) for a sport coat with multiple color threads is to either (a) play off the secondary colors along the spectrum of values (if there are brown lines, you can try various shades of beige and browns); or (b) use the background color of the cloth but in a different value (if the cloth uses light beige as a ground, try a darker shade of tan or brown).

There are a few colors in that sport coat so there's gotta be several trousers in your closet that would work (brown, blue, grey, white, denims).

Thanks for feedback on SS fits. I looked through fit pics and like the shorter and slimmer fit for G2 but based on measurements, I am not sure if V would be a good fit. Did you try V on G2? Would be curios to know if V fit you comfortably or was it too tight?

Yes I could wear V (the knit had some spring) but I don't like to wear cardigans too fitted. I prefer VI personally

Waited too long on Geller Emile. Probably for the best as I have so much outerwear, but still stings a little

One of those days. Size 6 GRP was perfect.

I know we're not to spring drops yet but will there be new iterations of Buttero low sneaks in canvas this year?

@sacafotos I went TTS (42) on the tent green mountain parka, which was what was recommended to me by NMWA, and it has a nice relaxed fit--especially if you want to layer underneath.

Could anyone provide a back length measurement for the Eidos DB Ulster coat?  Saw it mentioned that most have been going down a size, but I'm a taller guy and sizing down would put me at a 46, so a little worried about length (sleeve length would be interesting to hear about too).

@WillingToLearn I believe Greg's (very good) advice to me when I was deciding whether to keep that jacket was to stop trying to dress it up and let it be a summer jacket--wear it with a white linen shirt, no tie, and light trousers. Ultimately, I didn't keep it because I didn't think it worked well enough with the rest of my wardrobe, but I did take these photos to try it out. The cloth is great though.

You may have already picked your size, but I will chime in here since I'm a fan of Big John and the Rare. Standard caveats apply (i.e. I am only a random, anonymous internet opinion wink.gif). But here you go:

I have the Rare regular straight fit in a size 33, and after a cold soak and then, after some wear, a cold wash and hang dry the waist wears at between 88 and 89 cm for me. This is comfortable and not at all tight.

I wear a 35 Epaulet Rivet old fit, and I'd likely wear the 34 in the new fit. I wear a 34 in Epaulet Walts.

The other Big John I have is size 32 in the slim straight.

Only 3sixteen I have are the Kibatas, which are also shrink to fit so I'm not sure how they'd compare to what you have. But I went with advice to size those at a 34 and that has worked out for me.

I'm generally aiming for a sanforized denim waist size of just under or just over 34 inches, with the idea that they will stretch to fit from there to work for a 35ish measured waist. I prefer a reasonably relaxed fit.

My guess is that you'd want the 32 in these.

Hope the Rares work out for you. Really great denim and, as I mentioned once before, a really thoughtfully put together pair of jeans.

Thank you Kyle and Frank, i will go with size 32

@Mr. Six

Unbelievably helpful, I really appreciate you taking time to post those. Trying to take the advice that noobs like me get a lot which is make sure you can see how it fits into a wardrobe and outfits before falling in love with an individual item.

Six's post is far more helpful than mine, but I do get a lot of use out of the jacket it wearing it pretty casually; a lot of the time with denim.

 

Here it is dressed up a bit more with some Fresco trousers: (Click to show)
