    I took size up one to mean go from M to L. And then my only thought is that maybe XL might be an option, but I don't think I really need anymore room in the shirt. Anyway, I'm going to wear the L in the grey/red that's sold out in L and XL. Not sure if I'll cut the tag on the blue herringbone... Probably. What the heck.

    Frank is such a boss and Unbel is Justin Timberlake

    @Newcomer Jacket looks nice. Curious do you wear your jacket all day at work even when at a desk, or do you take it on and off as you leave the premise i.e. to go use the restroom?

    Thanks. What I don't want to do is get this jacket and then immediately decide that I know better than Formosa (and Greg and all the others who have shown how nice these pieces look) and nip here and tuck there and end up with something that's a different beast (and likely degrade the quality of the tailoring at the same time... no offense to my tailor... assume he's not here right now... but I doubt he works at the same level as the Formosa tailors).


    Ha ha. Boss internetz. Or at least Boss Kopper once again.

    Thanks.

    A quick PSA for those talking about the Mountain Parka earlier - a size 40 is now back in stock due to a modified order.

    For everyone talking about 40/50 being cleared out one of you needs to grab the grey lamb valstar which at some point has been marked down.

    Fantastic news, Kyle!


    It is the case IRL too.


    Yes, they weight about the same. :stirpot:

    Frank - Formosa looks great to me.

    It depends. If meeting with clients, I keep it on. If at my desk, I usually take it off. And then I always put it on when I go out of the office. Generally keep it off when going to the bathroom though haha.

    sizing looked good based off the pic. Does the L feel tight?

    Got a grey/red XL here... ;)

    Nope not tight anywhere. It's a generally trim cut, as advertised. I might make the sleeves a hair longer, if I could choose, and I think the shoulder yoke wouldn't be bad for me in an XL, but I don't think it's worth sizing up.

    I got size 38 in Mountain Parka my friend..and hope it will fit. I'm between 38R and 40R in coats and as per Greg, I went with 38. Can't wait to get it. I wanted to try 40 as well but it was already sold out.

    Now, I'm getting my SS FW charcoal Merino this Saturday in size V and REALLY hoping the fit is good. For some reason I have a good feeling :slayer:

    Planning on having any of the peccary gloves at the pop up show?

    sounds like we are in a similar spot. I have the XL and XXL. The XL is a bit tight in the chest but fits everywhere else. The XXL is better int he chest but a bit bulky everywhere else. While the best answer is to lose a few lbs....I am considering the XXL. I feel like I would be able to give these a hot wash and shrink it up a bit. The XL is really close to perfect but any tighter would be too tight. decisions decision...

    Slightly larger and a careful hot wash and dry seems like a good course. I know you don't want sloppy, but fortunately it's a flannel, so we don't have to be too fussy. You can rip holes in it eventually...

    I prefer size 42 from these pictures. I got lucky again and just snugged size 40 that reappeared in the system (thanks Kyle and Greg once again).
