You talking about the giubbotino? Thinking about the linen herringbone for that, too. Way too many shackets in my closet though haha.
I’m upping my casual wear game a little and I think I’ll get lots of use out of the linen Giubbotino. Have a wool shacket from PWVC that arrived today. Can’t wait to get home and check it out.

I had an awesome suede bomber from Zegna but I just never wore it. Gave it to my son. Discovered I’m just not into suede/leather jackets I guess.

I really don’t like corduroy for some reason. Maybe it’s because I wore a lot of it as a little kid in the 70s? I have a great pair of Rota corduroy pants but have worn them sparingly so far..

Anyway, want the linen as I love color and pattern of the brown check and it shouldn’t be too heavy.

The last three years here in DC have not been that cold at all. Current winter is a nothingburger.

Am I the only one who is interested in the linen jacket? It’s very similar to one I wanted at Drake’s but didn’t want to pay their price.

Lots of suede fans here I guess!

I really like the look of the Giubbottino but I (like @LeBeef) have too many shirt jackets already. Suede Valstarino for me next FW

It shirt jackets are like the new odd jacket. Does anyone here say “I have too many suits, too many jackets”??

Only when I move and have to pack all that shit up.

Just speaking for myself, I wear either a suit, or sport coat/trousers, Monday through Friday, the only time I wear a shirt jacket is on weekends/holidays. So the several I already have is plenty, perhaps too many.

There is also the weather factor, for me, a shirt jacket has a very narrow temp range, if it is too cold, a shirt jacket is not enough, if it is too hot, I’ll wear just a shirt, with no second layer.

If I could wear a shirt jacket in place of a sport coat, it would be a different situation, and yes, then I would likely add a few more to the closet.

question re: G. Inglese, measurements all look very compatible for me other than sleeve length, which is way too long.

For others who have a similar problem, do you just let your local tailor shorten the sleeves? Normally I'd be cool with that but wouldn't it defeat the purpose of having the handset sleeves? Thanks

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
