@Patrick R @budapest12 @Burzan thanks guys, super helpful.
The worst thing about the wool Doyles is trying to decide which one.
Extremely true. Leaning Golden Graham but unsure of the high synthetic content.
@Epaulet Mike, for a Southwick 37 and Medium in shirting, you'd recommend going with a Doyle 38? The 20.5" chest measurement seems similar to a sportcoat, as opposed to outerwear, but I know a lot has been done to relax the top block.
I feel like 38 would be perfect fit for you based on my own measurements and fit. We're the the same shoulder/chest but I'm 5'10". That being said, the sleeves on my 38 are a bit long for me (gonna have them tailored a couple inches) so thinking based on your height this would be perfect for you. Slouchy fit is great but IMO if shoulders are too wide it looks sloppy, that's just me.
Has anyone received their Aero jackets? I'd be interested in seeing fit pics!
Some great stuff going on at Epaulet right now. Any idea of another single cuts round coming up?
Or shipping the last round?
I'm your exact measurements. I went with 38 in both old and new Doyle, but I'm kind of wishing I went with the 40 in the new one. It fits well, but I think I'd prefer a little extra length in the body and some margin for shrinkage after laundering.
I don't think you'll go wrong either way though. Just preference.
Well yes, the OG Olive Doyle fit me perfectly. Shoulders, sleeve, chest- perfect. I need to order another Walnut and I'll likely go 38.
But I treat those Doyles like over shirts. The Olive fits sorta on the slim side. But I'm slim. And the new Doyles are slightly bigger in the chest than the 2014 model.
The Donegal, gonna go 9 oz. Golden Graham, is wool and I am still on the fence whether to size up or not.
I sent out an email to Mike to get his .02.
Nice. I can attest to the new Doyle being a bit more relaxed up top. I can comfortably fit a sweater with shirt underneath, couldn't do that comfortably with OG.
The Loden is getting most of the buzz but the Golden Graham is sleeper pick
Copped the Golden Graham. I have enough green stuff for F/W and the GG fabric was killer. Really looking forward to getting this!
