    Well, if anyone finds that his cotton/cashmere navy sport coat fits wrong in 37, drop me a line. Because I'm sad.

    Gents,

    I am seriously overthinking the styling for my baby camel hair sportcoat. I'd like it to be very comfortable for more casual wear, also as quasi-outwear, but still wear to corporate the office on Fridays. Shall I do open patch hip pockets and besom chest pocket? Patches all around? Why can't I decide this!!

    Thanks for any advice,

    Todd V

    I've been there … I'd go besom chest and patch hip. Gotta love patch pockets, but the besom chest shows you've got a bit of restraint ;)

    2nd.

    Some people shudder at the asymmetry of a patch/besom combo, but I like it on the Napoli. It shows restraint and keeps the jacket looking less isolated in one moment of menswear history. I actually find more than a few triple patch, unvented 80s eyesores in thrift stores. Not a look I'd advocate for the long term.

    ^^And maybe six or eight or 10 humans with managing three stores and mail outs. Patience. Not everyone is Amazon.

    Yeah 2 day handling isn't bad at all. Even with shoprunner automated 2 day I think less than half of shipments actually shipped within 48 hours

    My personal favorite is open patch at the hip with a welt pocket at the chest. That's our standard shape for the Napoli jacket. Changing the chest to a welt allows you to wear a pocket square more easily, and those are pretty rakish with camel hair! Consider going with elbow patches too. They look great on that coat!

    Thanks, guys. I took this advice minus the elbow patches!

    I believe those are pictures of mine that arrived yesterday. The fit and the feel is absolutely perfect. I also got a sport coat in the pearl grey and it's absolutely gorgeous. I ordered some matching Walts in the same fabric and really look forward to them coming in soon.

    I've lost quite a bit of weight, especially in my gut and chest since ordering and I was a bit scared that the jackets would need a lot of alterations but thankfully that's not the case. I'm going to try to get a few fit pics this weekend.

    Hi Mike,

    Can you remind me what was tweaked in the fit for the new CPO's. I had one of the old model in medium that I loved, but had to unload because it was a little tight in the armpits, cuffs, and (slightly) chest. Trying to decide if I want a medium or large. Also, is the length the same?

    Thanks!

    I was really really on the fence about that one, but decided against it. I don't regret my decision, but it looks like a really awesome sportcoat. Enjoy!

    It's November, I'm in Ireland and yet I've just bought the red seersucker gingham shirt. Wrong part of the world, wrong time of year but couldn't say no to a beautiful shirt for 50 bucks.

    I agree. I like both, but trying to decide which I like the most since I'll likely only get one. Decisions...

    Matt or Mike, do you have a strong preference re: either the grey or brown heavyweight mink trousers? Leaning towards brown but in one of the photos the grey has a blue-ish cast which looks great. In the other photo, the grey is much darker and is a standard mid-grey, which doesn't appeal as much. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Shoot. I need mink fur trousers now? Epaulet is killing it/me.

    Experiencing some mild FOMO in re. the green fisherman's sweater. I think I'm all knit-weared up for the season, but it looks so nice and at such a good price...

    And finally, hope to have a Barena knit SC in hand by the end of the day. Really looking forward to this.
