    Aw, looks like the Daltrey factory find isn't coming with the suede elbow patches.

    ^ In addition to that query above, do the Napoli factory finds come with a patch breast pocket, or barchetta breast pocket?

    That fabric is incredible. Has a great hand to it. Being from the south, I would say it might be a touch warm, but doable. I've worn my wool/cash Daltrey quite a bit in NYC recently. I think that fabric could be comfortable under 80 or so degrees.

    I would definitely say that most customers sized up in the Marcello. If the 40 feels good, I'm pretty sure you'd take a 38 or 39 in the Southwick jackets. The main thing you have to worry about is your shoulders. I would venture to recommend a size 39, as the shoulder measurement is going to be VERY close to the Marcello.

    I would recommend a 39 to be safe, as it's going to be just slightly bigger than a 38.

    I believe we have a size 37 in the Manhattan shop if you want to come by and check it out.

    Those are the Regiment Twill Walts in Brick.

    As a general rule it's better to take in than let out. Wools, linens and textured cottons (like the sanded canvas/duck canvas) will show little to no marks if you let our a seam, but for cotton twills and other "flat" fabrics, sometimes you'll see distinct marks. With taking a trouser in, you won't have these concerns.

    We can always take special orders for a size 35 as well. Just shoot me an email (matt@epauletnewyork.com)
    or PM.
    The Napoli has no shoulder padding whatsoever. The sizing runs consistent with the Daltrey/Weller/Caine, though. So you should buy the same size across the board.

    ALSO:

    If you guys have sportcoat questions, always feel free to drop me a line either through PM or through email . Mike calls me the "Sportcoat Guru" for a reason.

    The Rust and Pale Blue Exploded Check FF looks awesome.

    Mike -- are xtra-short bodies/sleeves available in the FF sportcoats?

    No, the FF jackets will have the same unfinished cuffs as the OTR Southwick jackets.

    You know how we roll! [​IMG]

    Ah, I believe we're going to discontinue the elbow patches after a lot of customer requests. Any decent tailor should be able to add them, however. I've had this done to a jacket or two in the past.

    The Napoli will have a barchetta breast pocket, like the OTR ones.

    FF jackets look great! I'm tempted by the Rust and Pale Blue and the Loden and Burnt Orange. Would it be possible to get a sense of how heavy those two are, either by oz or just in a general sense?

    Also, is there any chance of getting photos of those two swatches set back and at an angle, the way you've done with some of the other swatches (Donegal Grey or Clay Tobacco Houndstooth for example)? I find those photos really help to get a sense of the fabric.

    Thanks!

    Ah man, you guys suck...the breast patch was teh only thing holding me back from charging a sportcoat or two, now, you've worn down my last defense. I'm not sure I'll be able to hold on.

    On a side note, any idea when the Navy Python shoes are expected? I know Mike mentioned a bit of a hold up on them. If they're pushed to the fall I may be able to swing the FF without plastic which would rock.

    I have to agree, if that is possible, it'll be great.

    Looks like I waited too long and this fabric is gone now...dammit, I should know better than that by now. I'm still probably better off waiting until next season for some lighter options anyway, I won't be so slow on the trigger that time around.

    The snuff micro-houndstooth? I still see it there. Be sure to select "suiting" under the special order menu. If you simply select "special order", then you only get a partial listing of the FF's.

    Ahh, you're right! I didn't click on suiting and just saw a few of the FF options. Now I'm stuck between the snuff micro-houndstooth and the mellow gold wool/cash....also the snuff-scarlet wool/cash looks really nice as well, but from the swatch it looks like the fabric is a bit heavier. Too many choices!
