    Kind of hard to say perfectly because it hasn't been cold enough to bust it out. My take is that it has a lot of weight to it so it's probably pretty solid, especially as a layer piece. It feels like it'll be quite warm, but maybe not as warm as some of the heavier SNS Herning pieces.

    It's got a beautiful honeycomb texture with lighter green wool in the front and a dark olive layer in the back that's kind of hard to appreciate until you see it in person.

    You saw it coming, yet you hesitated.
    We appreciate your selfless ongoing sacrifice immensely. Must be hard to lead the blessed life of a bee in a honeypot and then forego the nectar.

    Finally took my Formosa sport coat to my alterations tailor to have the sleeves shortened and buttons attached. He really admired the handwork. He wasn't sure that he'd seen a nicer piece in his shop.

    Some fit pics of the Camoshita duffle taken for a friendly customer . This is sz 50 on me. A 52 would actually be a little bit more comfortable for me in the shoulders and for some extra length.

    Say Hello to my coat. :D
    (your friendly neighbourhood customer)

    Many thanks again, Greg!
    Looking forward to wearing it once having arrived on the new, distant shores. And will make sure to post some pics in the wild. (Will take a couple of months from now, though. Alas.)

    The collar/lapels take it to the next level.

    Exactly. It turns a classic duffle coat (although you'd be surprised how unusually chunky the wool is) into a winning design. It brings the badassness of a peacoat collar and lapels into the classic duffle. ftw

    @DeSense good things come to those who do NOT wait ! :)

    That coat is all sorts of awesome. Said it earlier, and I'll say it again, Camoshita really nailed F/W.

    Speaking of which... Denim Inglese is coming today, and Juncus is coming tomorrow!

    And to put it lightly, the Denim / Chambray Inglese is all kinds of awesome. I feel like Derek Zoolander.

    And Stitchy, welcome back, you have been missed.

    I finally received my custom order fox flannel. I should've bought a second piece [​IMG].

    @gdl203 @conceptual 4est @unbelragazzo , just saw a mention of Harris Tweed Cantarelli SC's for this fall on the NMWA x Formosa thread. Any idea when these will go live? October No Purchase Club members want to know....
