Very nice, Chorse. What size did you go with? I ordered one on the gamble that I should size up.

38/48. Fingers crossed. SBPL is not my favorite, but I could use it. Surprisingly, I don't have a charcoal suit.

I'm fearing the worst about my experiment. But there was only the one size, so I took it. Hopefully mine will run a bit small while yours runs true to size.

Lots of Black Fleece button down collar shirts. Mostly oxford cloth but some poplins.

I am sad I am missing out on the BF buttondowns, but the sizing is all wrong for me.

Some English silk damage recently: Drakes brown and white repp tie, and one of their spermtastic silk scarves with the hand-knotted fringes (the red, blue, buff one).

Also, my tailor just took the final deposit for my light grey Brisa 3-piece DB, so that should be here any day now, barring customs issues.

Pity. They are nicely done and, at 50% off (or even 50% less 15%) reasonably priced. I have grown to like the cloth selection as well. I have a yellow and also a pink oxford cloth, each with fine white stripes that is really cool. The brick stripe is nice, though not unique to BF, and the gray and the camel stripes are pretty unusual. The trick is to avoid some of the goofier Thom Browne ideas, like a blue OCBD where the collar is white. The spring merchandise includes some beautiful multi colored stripe OCBDs, including a very cool version in short sleeves for the Ivy-geek look.

Yes, and yes you do.
(I think they are not on sale online, though, just at the stores). BTW, the Black Fleece pea coat/toggle coat is really cool:

The picture is kind of dark, but you can see the "toggle" closures hanging down - the coat closes by buttoning them across. It looks great in person. I didn't get the coat as I have no use for it, but I did get the cardigan in the photo.

So, you're getting them in the $65-70 range?

Here's a better picture of it closed...

Yes, but some with the extra 15% off and some without. $63 is better than $75, but I am very happy with them at $75

That is a slightly different coat (camel hair v. melton), though I am not sure how different the designs are. the gray camelhair is a great fabric. The long, camel colored camelhair coat is also great.

On the other hand, I just heard from my tailor about my new camel hair polo in the works, so I have no regrets about not getting one of these overcoats.

I got the cardigan from the online sale. The shirts are no longer on sale online (other things, like that overcoat, are). The actual stores, including 346 in NY. still has the shirts on sale (that cardigan, too). The 346 store has a pretty large stock of shirts, sweaters, overcoats etc. on sale. Lots of suits, too, though I don't know if those are on sale or not. Try calling them - the two people I dealt with, Bella and Gabe - have been really helpful when I have been in, and I wouldn't be surprised if they happily take phone orders. I don't know that, though. 212 682 8800
