This brand is crazy. I'm curious how much has changed in the five years since this thread was originally introduced.

ITT are votes for "size up" "size down" & "true to size" heh. I assume this is the reason:

So different garments fit completely differently. Which I should note I love because this brand truly does has something for everyone. Huge fan. BUT that leaves one in the position of not knowing which size to order. Specifically, what's the fit of their jackets like? Here's a couple of examples:Grey Cotton JacketCheck JacketPerforated Leather Jacket
It's like, I can see the labels on the back but there's no indicator of "Luxury/Martini/Gold" like there is on their dress shirts
. Do they make this differentiation on their outwear? If not, how does it generally fit?
Oh and for anyone not a fan of this brand I'd like to note the lack of monogramming and absurdly good price on the items above. Cheers.
