    Looking at the olive prince of wales, so hard to extrapolate from just a swatch

    Edit-

    And the herringbone windowpane cashmere.

    If anyone has favorites or recommendations from the FF jackets, please share. I had a jacket made from a swatch once before and I chose... poorly. (Not thru EP.)

    Typically I go bold-ish sport coat, solid trousers. So grey-ice pow and frosty houndstooth would both fit the bill. But the tonal olive pow looks great too. Also like some of the fall fabrics--grey-red check could be killer. Really just a tremendous selection here. I'd be curious what jumps out to folks.

    Trying to decide which spring/summer FF jacket I want, but I have a question about sizing. I should probably go for a 42 in either L or XL. I usually like to have around a 31.75" BOC measurement, and a 42L would be 31.25" and 42XL would be 32.25". So basically I need something right in the middle of those too. If I went for the XL, would it throw off the balance to have a half inch chopped off the bottom of th jacket? Because I think the 42L would probably be just a tad too short, the 42XL might be my best option.

    ^ Is half an inch really going to be all that noticeable? I have a couple shorter-than-ideal jackets and they just look a tad more casual. I think this is really ideal for spring/summer-type fabrics.

    Obviously you can't lengthen in this situation, but given your choice I'd go with the L length and wear it just a tad cropped. XL will give you insurance against regret, but you could get hit with a tailoring bill. I know my tailors both dislike shortening jackets and tend to penalize their customers with high costs for that operation (same with shoulder work).

    EDIT: In fact, I have a summery Napoli from FF a year ago, and have been thinking about getting it shortened, to make it look like a slightly fancier LBM. Depends on the fabric though. Which are you looking at?

    I was looking at the Scottish Light Tattersall, so you make some good points because that is definitely a casual-ish fabric. I have a good relationship with my tailor, she gives me friend prices and wouldn't really sneeze at any request I make, so I don't think she would have a problem shortening it if that was what I wanted. I was more concerned about the balance of the jacket being thrown off. Half an inch isn't much, but I would definitely notice it even if nobody else did. The joys of OCD! :D

    I would probably make all sorts of concessions before I bought a jacket with the intention of having it shortened, by any amount.

    At your height, (which I'm guessing is over 6 feet?), I would imagine you could go +/- 1/2" in either direciton without noticing.

    At my height (5'4"), a half-inch in the wrong direction is a big deal.

    My wallet is happy that I don't need a sportcoat. Some of the swatches look really nice, especially given the price.
    An EP wedding suit might be in order sometime soon, though.
