Not convinced until you post fit pics.

I ordered it 4/17. I was really surprised as well. Fit pics won't be until earliest tomorrow. I have to go car shopping with my wife tonight. Most miserable thing in the world to me.

One more. Buttons are a darker MOP type. I hope they work with it.

It's the undershirt that is absorbing all the perspiration (if any) from my body and I don't get neck stains. 

Yikes.

I don't wear undershirts, so strictly one and done for me. Plus, ewww.

Smoked MOP:slayer:

Is it a suit or a blazer? I like the fabric. Can't wait:)smile.gif

It's a blazer but since I bought a pair of pants (light grey) I paid for their starter suit package. He was cool with me doing that vs. a full suit. I'll get more wear this way since I hardly wear full suits. If I get home early enough I'll try and run some test fits. I tried on the Jacket, it feels good so far. Fingers crossed. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

How does the fabric compare to your other jackets?

post #5183 of 37395
It's half lined so it feels light weight. May be a bit thin but I'm good with that. I wanted something I can wear in the summer and if it's winter I'm wearing a Jacket anyway. It's 100% wool, albeit their "starter" package wool not fine Italian wool or anything. As they call it "X Level 1 Super 120 Essentials" One thing I just noticed is it has front darts...Not sure how I feel about that. They threw the lummel on there but it's removable.

I'll give it a more thorough review within the next couple days.

i wish i could get away with no undershirt but its a must for me.

and its not ewww at all to wear a shirt twice when you do wear undershirts. though with a wife beater, if you do perspire, that would be eww.

Unfortunately, I have to wear an undershirt because my nipples are really dark and pointy...I don't know how else to say it.

I'm genuinely interested in why an undershirt is a must?

I'm happy to be converted it's just that i can't see it and haven't worn an undershirt/vest/dirty maud/singlet for years

I wear one because pit stains. The combo of deodorant and myself leave some not so pretty marks and I'd rather they be on cheap undershirts.
post #5188 of 37395

wow...I must be blessed. I don't wear deodorant and I still don't perspire there. Hee ha.

1. i wear a jewish garment (tzitzis), kind of like a small cotton poncho with fringes, under my shirt and its not comfortable (also i feel its not respectful to have it direct against my body although it is allowed), without an undershirt underneath it. essentially i am always wearing 3 shirts, but thats cool, i am used to it.

2. i sweat sometimes, depending on my levels of activity, and do not like dark wet spots on my pits during the day.


all in all if i did not have those considerations i doubt i would wear undershirts at all.

Well, respect to you El S nod[1].gif

As I said this place just keeps giving, I live and learn and am better for it.
