    Great - I think I am someone who needs the more durable grenadines - wish I could have waited! Will definitely be buying myself a new tie pre-xmas though.

    I can't imagine that being awfully difficult. It's nothing to do with the brand (Cotton On), I just can't imagine 98% cotton, 2% elastane shorts, in anything other than Calvin Klein stretch underwear being fit for human use.

    Just a note of caution with Suit Supply - colours on the website are (in my experience) different from the real garment. I didn't buy any sportcoats or suits, just outerwear (rain jackets, etc.) but the colour listed and shown as "beige" is actually a brown colour. I'm disappointed, and it's all going back.

    Anyone with experience of Aspesi jacket sizing?

    What inspires people to walk out of the door in the morning, in business attire, in to the heavy rain sans parapluie?

    I doubt they do. However I've gotten to the point where if I'm not out at a client site (Management Consultant), I say fuck it and wear whatever won't make me sweat like hell on the walk to work.

    i wanted the aspesi m65 field jacket but then i saw the price!!!

    not sure its any better/diff to a Muji or even a proper military manufacturer.

    Coincidentally, I'm wearing a linen shirt today.

    However, I'm looking rather casual, as I've paired it with a beige cotton suit and a blue knit tie.

    Likely not all that different to the MUJI, although I'm not too familiar with MUJI's field jacket offering at present so cannot comment definitively. I do know that the fit will be considerably trimmer than a proper military manufacturer (e.g. ALPHA). The price is ludicrous, but I bought a SuitSupply piece of outwear similar to a field jacket, and it's going back. It's one of those things where my heart is set on the Aspesi, so I may as well buy that one instead of something else that I'll keep for a while, only to regret having bought in place of the one I really wanted.

    *Cue value discussion* :stirpot:

    I would also like comments on this if possible, I just bought two suits and want to establish a working relationship with a decent tailor - rather than going to different ones everytime

    the thought of putting on some layers if temperatures are forgiving, and a good (vintage) trench coat
