I don't want to sidetrack this thread into some ur-SF debate about traditionalism vs. personal style, so I'll leave it at that.

In the end I agree, it's just personal preference, no rules. I've stated my preference, though I'm curious to see if Baron finds what he's searching for as the combination of a slim-cut leg paired with a chelsea boot sounds intriguing.

Whatever floats your boat. I just dont wear pleated or cuffed pants but that doesnt mean other people cant.
My post was not meant to be a condemnation on cuffs and/or pleats. I just personally dont like them. I will have to say however that cuffed pants > short no-break pants (full sock shot just standing)

Looking back at the op's pics, I'd like to see a full length shot, w/o trous hiked up, to get a better impression of the overall look. Debate aside, it's a beautiful suit.

Did not take your post as condemnation! I actually like the different preferences we all have! 

My preference for pleated pants arose so to rid myself of all pocket bulge (I must need a big hip measurement or something that OTR pants often don't have).

It's pretty common for English tailors...just look at a lot of Simon Crompton's stuff.  If the length is right, I think it looks good with or without.

On another note I love the cufflinks and ill probably pull the trigger during the trunk show

A good opportunity to grab a drink and meet up too - let's see who is up for it

Please RSVP here for drinks/dinner so we can plan stuff : https://nomansfmeetup2.splashthat.com

What's the upcharge for MTM G. Inglese and MTM Sartoria Formosa sport coat?
post #31583 of 36421
Thread Starter 
Can't really talk about an "upcharge" per se as both programs have prices that vary based on fabrics. G. Inglese for example : we have 5 fabric groups and 2 make levels (full handmade or not) so 10 different prices from $245 for Group 1 fabric in regular make up to nearly $500 for a Sea Island 170 fabric fully handmade.

Sartoria Formosa MTO/MTM is priced CMT (fabric cost added or people can bring their own)

Thinking of picking up a couple of these. At 6'4 180lbs wearing a 40L jacket the XL looks like my size. Can anyone chime in on the fit?

A few questions:

At what temperatures do most people here stop wearing their Rota flannels?

Also it it appropriate to wear a typical year round blue sportscoat (like the navy Formosa sportscoat) with flannels?

Conversely when do you guys start wearing linen pants? Do you wait till the temp gets past 80+

For some reason I find that I can wear linen sportscoats and especially linen jackets well into colder temps. A but confused about linen pants though.

My flannels take me into the 60s. Once we get to the 70s I switch to lighter weight fabrics. In Chicago that means I wear my flannels most of the year.

And, yes, it is appropriate to wear flannels with a typical blue coat. My preference is to pair a navy coat with a mid brown flannel.

I'm interested in the olive Eidos summer field jacket, but I'm not sure about the size. Purchased Eidos navy casentino aw 2015 coat in size 48 and fits really well, just only needed to short coat length and arms.

I'm not tall (168 cms) so I don't know if Eidos jacket in my size will be too long or not for me. Just planning to wear it both with suits and in a more causal way. What will be my size, and it's possible to know the jacket measures (wasn't able to find the measures in the website)Thanks.
