Some people in the Schneider thread have dropped a few hints, but (speaking as a newb) it's kind of alienating to have to hunt for that kind of info.

Could you give us some details (height/weight) and your preferred measurements (e.g., 18" shoulder 20" chest for outerwear...) and we can chime in if we are similarly sized and let you know what we wear. Schneider thread might help with this too.

We're here to be codependent with you!

Edit: I can work this in reverse of course, on the off chance it's helpful: I'm about 6' and typically go with outerwear with a 18.5" to 19" shoulder and 22/23" chest half measure. I wear a size V in SS sweaters and coats.

The one size V shirt I've tried didn't work so well for me. Just not a comfortable cut. I feel as if the way SS designs outwear is a little more forgiving.

Can't speak to trousers. Never tried them.

The fabric weight is midweight.  I did not bring a scale and calipers, so I'm not prepared to swear to it, but the material felt like 12-14 ounces.  Not heavy, but definitely jacket weight.  The jacket is partially lined with a knit too, with a knit on the inside upper chest, like so:

 

 

This is a small 38 EU dude wearing the size IV:

 

You are bigger than me by a little bit, irrc, and you have a fair bit of muscle mass through the shoulders as well.  If you just went up one size from the model (wearing a size IV) it's going to be pretty tight.  I would go for a VI in this particular instance, I think.  The coats are, ime, roomier than the jackets, which fit quite slim.

6' and actually 18" shoulder 20" chest is about spot on (could go a narrower on either but not much). 33 waist, though (alas) that may be going up.

 

Don't get me wrong, whenever I've asked a specific sizing question people have been helpful, and that's great. It just seems so weird to me that asking is necessary---this information is surely at least as important as the composition!

I hear you. Measurements are helpful when they're available.

I don't know if you've had a look at NMWA's Schneider selection, but they do have good measurements for many of their pieces. For example, the Memory coat here is probably a good proxy for the Film: http://www.nomanwalksalone.com/index.php/memory-coat-in-night-rich-navy-wool.html

NMWA is offering it's own preorder as well, of course.

I'm going to guess that a IV in the Film would suit you. Not sure about the Thinner, but LA Guy just addressed that...

Better to wait for items to be in stock somewhere then... kinda tough to get measurements in a showroom when there's only samples being shown.

You are nearly same as me - possibly slightly bigger.  I would say, size V in the coats, and size V in the jackets if you like a tight to slim fit, and a VI if you like a roomier fit.  

 

You are right, though.  I've now put the sizing up on the store as well.  

 

I am often reluctant to give sizing advice unsolicted, because there is no "One size fits all" (see what I did there?)  and I would need to know your shape, as well as preferences for fit, to give proper advice.

That dudes is more like 6'0", I would guess 150 lbs depending on bone density, and a small size 48.  He is very angular though, and shallow chested.  I would say that you would fit into the same size as him, based on what you looked like when we met this summer.

If you are really wary, I would say that that is probably the best option.  

 

The only problem would be the size of the collection.  The Schneider collection is enormous.  It was in a big space. and I originally thought that I was looking at two or three collections.  And that is not to mention all the permutations of fabrics and styles that weren't matched (both No Man and Styleforum chose things that were not sampled).  While it's possible that you'll be able to find something in the preorders during the regular season, it's fairly unlikely for some combinations that are up for preorder now.  That goes for No Man, Suspension Point, etc... but moreso for us, since we won't be carrying regular stock.

Yes, it's a 100% wool - that's what I have on my linesheet.

First post has been updated.  We are going to be offering just six options with our core choice of fabrics (we have 2 garments (Thinner jacket and Oil coat) in the navy with the colorful reverse side, and 2 in the blue grey wool (thinner jacket and the Film Coat), the Film coat in the navy box weave, just because it looked so sharp, and finally, the pants, because they are pretty excellent.

Just wanted to show you guys two things.  The first pictures show is the ribbing on the collar and the cuffs of the "Thinner" jacket.  The third is a detailed shot of the navy melange that we've opted to use on Styleforum's version of the Thinner jacket, which will make for a somewhat softer look overall, while retaining the sharpness and simplicity of the cut.
