    Note that I am wearing just a t-shirt underneath. The 42 felt a little better. I think especially if I were wearing a sweater underneath, that's the size I would want.

    Port Flannel: very nice! I need to grab one of those, looks very comfortable, and they are a solid price.

    Bulls Wool: awesome, now I really want that ecru one! How warm does it wear? I will find out in a couple hours... but patience has never been my strength.

    Formosa: shoulders look right on, length looks good, and the sleeves drape well. The waist could probably be nipped a bit though. Open, it looks a bit large on you, but IME, I rarely, if ever, wear my Formosa open, as I find it looks much better buttoned. And of course, I am not sure the Bulls Wool is the best layering piece :). If I were you, I would probably give it a little bit of wear though. I have found that the Formosas really meld to your body after a half a dozen wears, once the fabric wears in and such.

    Thank you, Kyle. You should have told a joke, for a happy smile.

    Oh yeah, and thank you about the kind words about the article on Put This On!

    I can confirm that I do indeed put very little thought into what I wear in the morning, but a slightly inordinate amount of thought into what I buy for myself. I think we're all a bit on the end of the spectrum though, no?

    Thanks. I took a few in that strong sunlight with just the Port Flannel underneath. I'll post those a little later and we can see what people think.


    Only had the bulls wool on briefly. I think it will wear fairly warm, but more only top layer needed on a cool day warm.

    And thanks for the input on the Formosa. I want to do as little as possible to it. I am going to take your advice and wear it around a bit. I think the photos we've seen of the jackets worn in a little look really great. Can always nip the waist later. No hurry.

    @FC, great look with the Port Flannel. I am right between sizes on the two I have but your pic makes me go size up. I like the bit more relaxed look and after all they should be too fitted. Plus I think given the nature of the cotton that they would be easy to shrink a bit if needed.

    Thanks for the heads up!

    And I am with you there. With my first Formosa, I thought I was going to nip the waist, and have not done a darn thing to it yet.

    Here is a picture out of it (a) right out of the box, and (b) after a few wears:

    Also, realized that I had a lot of NMWA gear on today, and snapped a quick work bathroom selfie, which is always kosher in these parts.

    Looking good, Frank! Good decision to wear it for a while before making anymore alterations.

    I just got porked by Wilkes Bashford.

    Was smitten by Heschung Genet chukkas when I visited NMWA office back in early Sept, but unfortunately they did not receive the US 7's they had ordered. Subsequently I tracked them down and purchased them from WB just now.

    Short story: WIlkes Bashford $625 + shipping, NMWA $465, free shipping. It's times like this I'm reminded of how good we've got it at NMWA.

    Certainly am. Thanks a lot again for the great help to you both, David and you. Avoided ending up with a non perfect fit that way. Mission accomplished. :)

    Should have referred to you as conceptual 4est. :satisfied: Who's this Kyle?

    Port Flannels are scheduled for delivery today... crossing my fingers for sizing.

    Thank you for taking the time. That worked out well.
    May I trouble you with one more question? Have you tried the Eidos Field Jacket and if, is your size a 52 or 54? In my view the 54 looks a little trim on Greg. Granted, he wears a jacket underneath, I believe, so there can't be too much room left. If my feeling was justified, a sizing up might be beneficial after all. Hmm...

    I liked the 52 on me in the field jacket. But I probably wouldn't wear it over a sport coat very often.
