Those "Sam" trousers look amazing. Please help me visualize...too casual for a hopsack sportcoat?

God no. And if anyone here says yes they are wrong.

I see the Bumfreezers will only come in the hopsack. Does anyone know what the characteristics are of this particular weave? Will it have any resistance to precipitation?

Depends on the style of jacket, but most importantly on you and your tastes. I personally wear these kinds of trousers with my Boglioli navy hopsack all the time. Often with white sneakers and an open white shirt in the spring and summer. A nice, simple and casual, but still smart, look for relaxed work days.

EDIT: those trousers are great BTW. I would personally rock them with a rollneck, suede brogues, jacket and a baseball cap. But that's me biggrin.gif

These are first abs foremost "rain coats" they are very resistant to precipitation as they are waterproof

The textured weave of hopsack makes it a casual fabric that is ideally worn with similarly casual bottoms like chinos and flannels.

Official sources should weigh in on this, but I think in this case hopsack describes the texture. I believe Rydenfan is right that these are still technical fabrics that are waterproof and extremely functional.

Correct - the material is 100% waterproof and membrane-laminated, like the other fabrics that NR uses.  Each fabric has a texture effect that looks like classic woven fabrics (herringbone, twill, hopsack, etc..) but that doesn't affect the waterproof nature of the fabric

 

Best

Any timeline you can share regarding Lesca restocks?

Question about Sal vs. Sam - If I am typically an EU48 in the Sal, where the waist fits just right, do I need a 32 or a 34 in the Sam? Judging from the measurements, the Sam seems to fit a little trimmer in the waist.

Yes, I think that it probably has to do with it being garment-dyed.   It's a little bit trimmer than the Sal

New Valstar collection is up

The tweed Bal coats and Valstarino green wool melange are fully waterproof with taped seams, etc...  The shearling jacket is to die for and the two British Millerain coats are fully lined with sherpa fleece.  All in all, a :slayer:collection  ​

That Balmacaan coat is lovely... it almost looks like it could be used as a lightweight overcoat (i.e., in Louisiana?)
