    Proper Cloth - Official Affiliate Thread

    I agree with the measurements part. Do you have another OTR or MTM shirt that you want duplicated? Use that. I provided my own measurements based on another shirt. The first came in tighter than I would have liked, so they remade it per my updated measurements. The fit on the remake is near...

    Preference? I think the fine - slightly more versatile. Coarse is great too, but it is very casual.

    Shit. I must have included the collar. Apologies. 38R Neo does measure 29.5"

    The wool-silk-linen blend EThomas I have has a wool melton.

    I think that depends on how short of a jacket you're comfortable with. SM website states the 38S is 1.4" shorter than 38R. Add in the 1" gain for the Neo and a 38S Neo should be 29.1", or 0.4" shorter than the 29.5" Contemporary 38R. I don't have any short jackets, so I'd verify all of this...

    I've received 38R Contemporary in both - they're nearly identical. The Neo is 1" longer in the back. I also feel like the Neo has a slightly narrower armhole and arm width, but I may be imagining that. They're at the tailor, so I can't tell you right now. I'm also having the sleeves...

    Haha, absolutely no argument there. It's more a question of economics; 1) will my use justify the cost 2) will the jacket/suit justify the space it occupies in my closet.

    I've abstained from commenting about the drama in an effort to not further it. For everyone involved in the drama, there is a report feature, use it if you feel the need. Otherwise, allow the mods to do the policing, pick yourself up, and move on. Members childishly quibbling over trivia is...

    Ah, Houston is humid as hell during the summer. I would lean towards the Neo Navy Hopsack, but I'd give the Neo Navy Searsucker suit a look as well if it isn't too casual for you; @225gsm it may be the coolest current offering. That said, searsucker isn't a year-round material, hopsack can be...

    Are you starting with only the honey linen suit and the med blue VBC fresco? If so, go with the most versatile sports coat/jacket you possibly can - e.g. navy hopsack, Angelico bright navy hopsack, or Angelico navy blazer.

    Yes. For contemporary 38R from this season: Standard - 29.5" (true to SM size chart) Neapolitan - 30.5"

    I think it looks good for office wear, but it's entirely dependent upon what you do and where you are. E.g. that's slightly on the casual side for many major city law firms on the east coast, but probably over the top for the same on the west coast.

    I'd also give deep maroons/mahoganies a shot, although those may pair better with the tobacco linen. Hard to say without having seen either in person.

    Unless you're an uncommon size, I wouldn't count on it haha. That cigar is sexy.

    Those are beautiful. Any close-ups of the cloth?

    If your chest actually measures 39", a 38 Contemporary will fit you well. A 38 slim may also work, but could be too narrow - hold out for more advice. For what it's worth, I'm 6'/172lbs (184cm/78kg) with a 39"-39.5" chest and a 38 Contemporary is perfect, but a 40 Slim was too large for me.

    I was probably one of the first to receive one, as I ordered within a few days of the launch. I provided all of my own measurements and didn't consult with PC beforehand. All of the measurements were impressively precise and the construction is excellent. Unfortunately, my jacket's chest...

    Yep. I definitely don't need the jacket now, but I do need to figure out what S&M jacket size works for me so I'm able place an order for a couple more before they sell out.
