    Hmm, it probably was a test, not seeing anything right now

    I like this. Camo sweater and Ruby Carminas mix in well with the grey and tan.

    Speaking of sizing for layering, I'm glad I was able to buy my Harris tweed MTOs in 41, which I thought I'd get taken in around the waist, but now I think not. They are a good size for layering, and that works for me.

    Same here. I knew at the time that it was the exact navy sportcoat I was looking for but slept on it. :embar:

    I think this is one of your best fit pics. That camel hair jacket is so nice. This makes me think about the camel hair jacket MTO. I just don't know how to wear it.

    I have also been thinking of the navy duck canvas sportcoat on sale but I think the 38R maybe too long for me.

    Thanks, Frank. The 37 would be dead on for me to wear with just a shirt. The 38 is perfect with a light sweater under. It's even fine with just a shirt but will be a slight relaxed fit.

    Thanks! I love the beige tone and feel like it matches well with the usually suspects, ie gray, navy and brown. The Epaulet version is a great deal. I'm glad they brought it back. J. Crew has an off the rack version for something asinine like $900 or 1000.

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

    Mike--

    Looks like you are building out some interesting stuff...a birdie told me that we should see a Carmina Jumper MTO in the dark scotchgrain....

    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!
