However, if you were to take the time contact TBB and maybe establish a relationship with someone there, I'm sure the guys there would take the time to supply you with the measurements that you need to make a purchase.

Gary, what is your experience with baker sizing in the navy twill this season? Is it running smaller than usual and warrant a size up perhaps?

Definitely more suppression than past seasons. I've always looked at Baker as their true sports jacket fit. For the portly, you might want to size up.

The Navy Twill Baker says "Hand Wash" on the care tag. Could I get away with machine washing it on a cold delicate cycle in a delicates bag, or is that not recommended?

Yes! That should be OK. Remember to turn delicates inside out and button / zip them up. This prevents abrasion from agitation wearing away surface texture and design.

Thanks!

 

On that topic...could I also get away with washing a tropical wool garment in that manner, or is that strictly dry clean only?

Dry clean only. Definitely do not wash tropical wool.

Kind of a misconception about wool never to be washed. Wool has seen water from the animal to the washing of the fiber to the sponging of the cloth. We wash as much wool as we can be are leery about particular articles that might have a sophisticated construction ie. waistband, fusibles. However the common sense question to ask is how is this going to look when dry and will you be able to press it back to its original presentation. In regards to the soap we use and sell at @Drinkwater's, it is Eucalan. We sell the essences Lavender, Eucalyptus and Grapefruit. All moth inhibitors.

I would dry clean because of the fusibles.
