Sorry to be that guy but can I get some advice on sizing the black linen Sam jacket? I’m 5’8, 140lbs and have a feeling I should grab the L but…maybe the M?

yeahhh but based on that seems like…XS? Which seems wrong considering intended fit + the model being 6’ and 30” waist wearing an XL. Figured I’d throw a message in here with hopes that someone with roughly my measurements could chime in (hopefully without detailing other convos people are having about the brand)

I feel that Sam sizing should be based on the length and not the width. It’s a loose flowy shirt so an extra inch or two in width is just part of the look.

Personally I’d go one up from my standard 18E shirt size to get the length I want. I know this is pretty much the standard answer to 18E sizing Q’s though.

I'm 5'9" 135, got the S in the original version and it's great. Seems like the wide cropped fit as intended. I think the silhouette has been changed though. I think it is intended to be cropped but maybe recent versions not as much. I don't think you can go wrong with either the M or L, but L seems like it'll be extra wide or slouchy. If you like that then maybe that's okay. I'd look more at the chest and arm length than the length.

I have like 30-45 pounds on you guys and am swimming in the L (in a good way). M will be big, but good, for you @karmaguy I think. Maybe S like @dalevy but just know it will be cropped by design and drapes well even if it’s wide.

@NickPollica Any updates on the rugby? Any news is good news. Super excited. Thanks!
Also wondering
You guys probably just got the email too but due to a Covid delay at the block printers the ETA is first or second week of August. They sent a 15% refund on the rugby as an apology, which is pretty nice of them, considering it’s out of their control.

Kinda a bummer though as I ordered the Rugby, SS Pionta and hat in one order, so my other stuff has been sitting there waiting for a while. Sounds like I won't get the SS Pionta until maybe the start of September (shipping to Canada) which isn't really short-sleeve weather anymore. What can ya do though, Covid [email protected]$ up everything...
