Jacket from @malcb33
Pants from @LeBeef
Shoes from @justridiculous

Been hitting up the buy/sell pretty hard lol. Finally time to slow down.

Sleeves on the jacket are a little short (not as bad irl as in the pic), but doesn't bother me too much. Kinda fits with the cropped pants
Is that the navy diamondweave? The fit on the jacket is interesting. Sleeves pretty slim, body pretty wide and cropped. Sitting on mine waiting for things to warm up to see how much I bust it out.

Don't pay the size tag any mind. I'm a usual 34 waist and XXL in 18E bottoms are the best fit for me. Not even for an exaggerated large fit, just the comfiest.
I guess the end of the 18 East sizing journey is that we all discover we were XXL all along. I think I’m pretty much there. Hopefully they’ll stock many more XXLs!

I genuinely cannot remember the last time I looked at a measurement chart. I guess when I was buying a second hand suit on this site in 2011?? I just get XL in everything that isn’t Japanese and XXL if it is.
As a bigger person, the measurement charts are very important, and Id probably stop buying 18E all together if they went away.

Also, is there any update on when we might see UPS back for shipping, if at all? USPS is just an absolute disaster, and now after dealing with a lost order, I’m now gonna worry about each and every order.[/QUOTE]

yeah I just want to say since I was talking about fit issues earlier, measurements are 100% make or break for me. with the roomet I actually went with the sizing advice and got TTS, if I had stuck to sizing up to L as usual it would’ve been fine. taking the time to actually pull out the measuring tape and check sleeve length would’ve told me that as well so partially my fault, but the point is sizing advice is not a replacement for measurements.
also got burned sizing down on an SI thermal recently and measurements would’ve saved me.

The new Padmore colabs look dope! I wonder if there will be other colorways or they’re just playing it safe with one color since the last run didn’t sell out?

1 color. Black Beeswax Leather with black pebble grain accents. Based on an idea I had pitched to Clarks for an Eidos collab but we pushed it substantially further. These turned out really, really well.

Ah I remember those on the IG story you posted a while back. So cool they finally came to life!
