    Great, so far. I think they work well with the texture and weight of the tweed, they might be a bit busy with something less substantial. Either way it looks as though the flaps could just be taken off for plain patch pockets.

    Makes sense thanks. I sort of want to go for the harris tweed sportcoat but I'm not sure any of the colors are quite what I want. Something more like the UK Ironwood tweed would work. Maybe I'll do that in a MTO if possible. Then again I want a Daltry. I could go nuts trying to make these decisions sometimes!

    ^ You can definitely have flaps taken off. I've had it done before at my tailor's (if you're sure of your skills you can probably do it yourself). On a cotton or linen fabric, that might leave stitch marks, but on wool it should be fine.

    Like mentioned by other members, great stuff on sale. I picked up a couple of lightweight shirts but I'm sure I will wear them before summer. They should do well with a wool sweater over.

    This came right as I was gonna go to the gym. Had to try it on ASAP. Picture is just for laughs of course!

    Hey Mike,

    Earlier in the year you had a great FF Sportcoat fabric in kind of a chestnut corduroy. My only bummer was that it was Weller only. Would you ever consider offering that fabric again with us having the choice of more of a Daltrey cut?

    My wife and I are in Atlanta visiting for the weekend, and yesterday I had two people come up to me to compliment my Epaulet cognac sport trainers and ask where I bought them. The funny part is that they both already knew where they came from before asking. I know Epaulet is taking the world by storm (as even a few South Carolina folks are regulars here), but I didn't expect two people already to know about the brand and these trainers in particular. [​IMG] Oh, and one of the guys knew Matt. Small world! Have a blessed Sunday everyone.

    Hey Guys

    This is the napoli goldenrod/cashmere factory find from the most recent round.

    I could use some advice on sizing. I apologize for the lighting -- I'm also slouching in the photo of the back. The back is actually really flat and good. I'm most concerned about the shoulders and length.

    Being on the shorter end I'm so used to jackets being too long. This is a 37XS and I'm 5'4" and ~135lbs. Does it seem too short?

    Thanks for any advice
    Todd V

    Ha ha. I was thinking the same thing... That shirt looks nice. Tempted to get one at that sale price.

    Also @Todd V, the length looks fine to me.

    Todd V - I'm certainly no expert but the main issue looks like the front balance is off. Maybe it's just the way you're standing, but the quarters look completely closed. It also might be due to the height of the buttoning point. The jacket doesn't look excessively short, but you might need a 37S rather than an XS so that the buttoning point is more proportionate.

    Thanks for the input Frank and Beatle -- I see I was leaning back in that photo. That accounts for the back bubble as well. I have habit of that. Here's a few more with better posture. Does this look better?

    Edit: Adding MUCH better photos with proper trousers. Less bunching of the shirt under the jacket and bulkiness of the jeans. Nevermind the tie -- I had different suit on at work. :)

    No fair, dudes. I already plan on going to Home Depot for my photo submission to get some fall colors in the background :(


    I also agree with Frank in regard to Todd's jacket not being too short. I think at your height, if the jacket was to cover your whole rear, it'd be too long.

    The button stance looks a bit high, but only to a #menswear nit-picky eye. The bottom hem doesn't pass your thumb and covers your ass, which makes it a good length in my book.

    Nice jacket! One of my favorite FFs they've done.

    ^Nice jacket Todd. I saw the swatch in person and the goldenrod is definitely very nice.
