You really mean the walnut (orange) from a few years ago. Still holding out hope that color is offered again.
I randomly see a posting on some Japanese site when searching on Google for that jacket. I get excited and then find that it sold forever ago.

...if the item has measurements listed in VirtuSize.
:confused2:

We have 80-85% coverage for measurements, and the remainder is almost only scarves, ties and other SKUs that have a size listed as a bullet point.

For a big part of 2020, we just couldn't have enough hands in the office to measure new arrivals AND ship orders. But once we started coming back in person, our Virtusize coverage has been very high

It is with a heavy heart that I must announce that many of you are in fact, sleeping on this Doppiaa jacket (Inglese shirt as well).View attachment 1560503View attachment 1560504
Doppiaa jackets are awesome, and I'm jealous every time you post pics of yours (you have the tobacco linen and one of the other S/S ones, right?). I just wish they came in long sizes.

We will post KS Traveler coat preorder info shortly (tomorrow or Wednesday) but here are the three colors for FW21 are mid-grey, beige and navy. Fabric is an extra fine double cloth melton (100% wool). Weight is slightly lighter than the FW20 version.

I get it, and if they offered longs I would get them but I’m 6’2” and they aren’t that short to me. Also it’s 2021 and wearing a jacket in any form automatically makes you an oddball in general society so being an inch off in length doesn’t bother me.

Well I’m 6’2 also so now you’ve given me something to think about. Are they about 30” long?

Well, I think I'm getting gray so I can wear it as formal as needed, but sizing is still a question. Anyone 5'9" who wears a 42 in the KS Traveler can comment on the length? I'm 155-160, 42R w/ a 10" drop (broad chest, not crazy jacked). The SdC trench in L felt like an appropriate length for me and I could wear it comfortably over a sportcoat. Should I go TTS?

@gdl203 Slightly lighter weight but still that stiff and rigid fabric everyone loves, right? I returned the SdC because I was worried it would be too light for my one winter coat (and last week's ice storm in Houston would have confirmed that theory).

Yep. Slightly lighter, not dramatically lighter. We haven't handled samples but we have swatches and it's still a substantial cloth. Fit pics also show the usual KS Traveler shape/rigidity

Taking a magnifying glass to those photos. It looks like both the grey and the blue have some texture to them (whereas the beige looks flatter). Am I over-reading the photos or anything you can share about that texture? Thanks.

Texture, not really. But the grey uses mixed yarns so you definitely see that in person. The navy and beige are more uniform color yarns

Got it. Thanks. Not to be a PITA, but would it be possible to post photos of the swatches to get a closer-up view?

Ugh do I need another Traveler in beige if I bought the Smokey green last year?
So, I feel uniquely qualified to address this.

You definitely do not need it. I question myself sometimes on the wisdom of two Travelers. But they are different enough, and I know if I ever lost one or stained it or had moth holes I would have an extra and there is no guaranty this jacket will be available in perpetuity.
