got the S&C brown cardigan today but unfortunately the slouch was a bit too much even for me. I wear a size 38 suit and think I might have been better off with XS. Next year!

With the world how it is right now because of covid, should a man's first suit still be navy / grey? Or should he choose more flexible options since we're all dressing down? I guess maybe it depends mostly on the occasions you plan on wearing said suit?

Since I live in a tropical climate I've been eyeing that beige NMWA x SC suit for many months but I'm pretty sure my relatives would be angry if I wore this to family funerals.

Edit: I think I'm going to pay off my credit card loan first. Tailoring can wait until 2021...

I decided to follow @Newcomer's glowing endorsement of GRP and make my first purchase with NMWA. Waiting a week to receive my package on the West Coast was torturous, but I was very pleasantly surprised with the neat minimal packaging (no useless plastic or waste!) and thoughtful touches like the hand written note or the envelope containing the invoice, return label, and note. Very nicely done gentlemen - I understand where all the loyalty and excitement comes from now.

Also, GRP is really nice quality! The knit has a soft hand without feeling dainty, and it's thick and warm without feeling constricting. Best yet, my manager commented how professional I looked on our video call. If that doesn't mean I'm getting a raise and promotion tomorrow, I don't know what would 😂😁.

Quick fit:

So you didnt get the complimentary seasonal truffles or candies sprinkled with gold ala donegal? Or a Haiku poem? NMWA elves must be really busy. Probably on your next order.

this is XL, which feels a bit snug for me with a sweater on. Probably best for a typical 42/52
