    Mike/Matt,

    A L in the mainline Epaulet shirts fits me well (albeit on the slim side), but I take a 42 in the Doyle. Will a L in the CPO be too tight?

    Thanks.

    For what it is worth, I have the loden suede jacket and I would certainly recommend it. It is not too warm, so great for Fall and Spring. The pig suede is tough and durable, as advertised. I sprayed mine with Invulner in case of rain, but I don't think it will be a problem. Get it.

    I can't make up my mine about the Samuelson windowpane. It is certainly a great price. But I'm not sure how much wear I would get out of it. It just doesn't seem all that versatile.

    If you keep everything else subtle it can really be quite versatile. The pattern looks more shocking than it is in real life. If you need/want a jacket for anything other than an interview (or a funeral, I guess) I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

    I grabbed the blue windowpane Sammy in 42.

    I'm traditionally a 40 (even been in some Samuelsohn 38s before) but I am a touch barrel chested and tend to get lapel bowing when standing very upright. Furthermore, I am trying to move towards a bit more drape, especially with quality fabrics and canvassed construction like this jacket.

    I like the 40 Napoli that I have but went for a 41 in my recent FF jacket due to slight chest bowing. For this 42, I'll need to snip the waist and the sleeves but I think I can make it work.

    Now, I hope our customs department doesn't slap me with a big bill for bringing the garment back to its country of manufacture!

    I'm an 8 Barrie and 41 in VASS P2. The 41 in the 3636 was quite roomy. I would think 41 would work better for you.

    FWIW, that boot is sick in person.

    I'm pretty similar, although I could go 40 or 42 in the Doyle. The L CPO definitely isn't too tight. I think it's but a little roomier.'

    I should have grabbed the navy when I still had the chance.

    Bought the navy CPO - now I just have to wait three months for the two weeks of LA chilliness.

    Thanks to both of you. Saw the boot in the store and agree its stunning but have to be responsible and seems like fit would not be the best.

    They had a 41 two weeks ago when I was there. Might be worth a cal to LES store?

    1) What's more roomy for you? 41 in P2 or 41 in P2


    2) Could you have went down to 40.5 for the 3636?

    Assuming that you're a 41 in both F last and P2, but can go down to 40.5 on the 3636?

    I bought the 41 today.

    I am a 7.5 Barrie, and these are a bit wider, but the length is similar.

    Will the loopwheel tees shrink at all if I religiously wash cold and hang dry? Just took delivery of a couple of mediums, and I would not want these to shrink even 1/8th of an inch in pretty much any direction.

    Really nice tees, I wish they were 1/2" larger everywhere!
