    The cuts look nice - generally, "modern" slim but definitely not skinny, pants are tapered without being tight, high-ish gorge and what looks like high arm holes on the jackets -, and the colors look good but:

    - I've never seen them in person

    - there appears to be little to no discussion on here


    so I know NOTHING about the quality and value. Given MSRPs seem to start at $400-500 for a jacket, I'm assuming it can't be amazing (and is made in China) but I was hoping for some insight from anyone with real IRL experience with the brand.

    As far as I know DS Dundee is made in Portugal and central Europe rather than China (though of course this may no longer be the case). I tried some jackets and knitwear a few years ago. Nice stuff in the heritage / tweed vein.

    They're a blogger-approved brand. This Fits has highlighted them a few times.

    Whichever of you bastards just sniped the sz 38 navy blazer out from under me on cladmen— don't sleep.

    D.S Dundee had excellent choice of causal wear

    Just don't pick their blazer coz they would not be fully canvassed

    Aaannnd, I snoozed on this stuff while out and now everything on Cladmen is gone in my size. :D Saved me some money? Though it was for work....


    Anyone know if half-canvassed, if not full?

    I recently purchased an item; still Made in Portugal. Pleased with decision. Good fit on the shirt jacket. I now have four pieces from them: fair isle sweater vest, trousers, tweed outerwear, and aforementioned shirt jacket. All good. I guess you could describe their stuff as heritage wear with a modern twist.

    I know most if not all of their boots & shoes are made in England by Cheaney. Quality is on par with Herring Premier range.

    I picked up a coat from their Clad blowout sale. The fabric and finish were very nice, and the retail $800 coat looks like it could easily cost 2x as much. The only thing is that their coat fit larger than tagged, so consider sizing down.
