Here’s the IM easy cardigan. Size L in henna. Most of my other IM pieces are also L. I have a couple pub jackets in M—the linen one is good, the wool I might like in L better. I’m usually 40/50 or 42/52 in tailored stuff. 50 in Formosa. I decided to stick with L for the cardigan, knowing that it would be slouchier. I think it was the right call. It definitely fits bigger than other IM pieces in L, but it’s a different vibe.

And because it amuses me, here’s a pic of something I have hanging at home. Looks kind of familiar!

Is that hole from a very large moth? Or a bullet??
Most likely a fire. That's an old school Japanese firefighter's coat.
Had you not mentioned that it was a firefighter's coat, I would have assumed the hole was from a katana!

Would you guys be interested in a group zoom session with me and the Rota cards, so anyone can ask questions, see stuff closer, etc...?
That would be cool if I can make time for it.

For the seersucker trousers, standard size or size up, since they're garment washed? (I know it says to size up on the preorder page but I feel compelled to confirm. :foo:)

Alright! I pre-ordered the Rota pants in the light gray version of the Loro Piana Summertime wool-silk-linen fabric. I have the blue versions pictured in Greg's post from last season. Amazing fabric. The light gray (with belt loops) will make for great summer wear at work since I don't see wearing suits five days a week being a thing for a while, if ever.

I got the blue versions from last season right when Covid hit and have only just gotten them tailored. Chose the higher rise with side tabs for those.

That fabric is really super comfortable. VBC makes a similar mix of yarns for Gladson/Huddersfield (some may say they're the ones who also makes it for LP 🤫 ) in a bunch called Safari and we just received a jacket a customer had made up MTM in that fabric - I can confirm it's very nice for jacketing too

Nice choices @smittycl !

If I may ask, which shade of grey did you go with on the LP W/S/L?
