    Dang. You put on 15 pounds? All muscle? In any case, that's impressive.

    I need to do a little work on the upper body/shoulders myself.

    Since Mike suggested to a 38 s poster that sizing up would give a good, slouchy fit, I still am curious if there is any difference in drape and fit with the wool/synthetics that might make a better look/style than the cotton Doyle's sizing up to a 40.

    Mike, will you be carrying any stock 40 Golden Graham's that I could maybe compare and return the one that doesn't work?

    @metranger8694 ha no not all muscle.

    Wishful thinking but it's been an intended slow gain from 156-183 this morning over the past 1.5 years. If I could put on 3-5 lbs of muscle in a year that would be ideal. Will see the next time I diet down but am staying in a surplus for now.

    Haha it's open! I've had my stuff listed in the B&S for a bit. But I'm not clearing out as I'll still need some of it when I drop weight again. :)

    Hertling puts DCO labels in ALL of their trousers. You should be fine to proceed as you mentioned. I've washed cotton Walts and Gables repeatedly.

    @applky yup, definitely a 38 in the Doyle for you. The fit is generally more in line with a sportcoat, and I think it will be a nice shape over a shirt, but you could also fit a very light sweater underneath.

    In terms of the Golden Graham fabric mix, you guys know that I'm a stickler on fabrics. I'm choosy and judgmental about them. I was honestly a little skeptical when I first saw it, but after making up the full sample, I knew that it was ace. The hand is really soft on it and the color tones are punchy. It breathes well too and should wear longer than a pure wool. I think that it's an especially great fabric to order the Rivet or Sandow in as well.

    @n-domino we just got three of them in last Wed, I'll take pics and post them up here before we ship them out. They're going out to customers (heads up @FrankCowperwood ) on Monday or Tuesday

    @el es dee @duff406

    We've got a box of single cuts en-route from the factory for arrival this week, and I'm going to try and do the next round on Thurs.

    @K. Nights no problem to cold wash and hang dry them... go right ahead. You may lose about 0.5" in the length, so just bear that in mind for hemming.

    @rydenfan very cool! Go for the same size that you took in the OG. This new model has a full inch more in the chest and deeper armholes. It will give you the fit that you originally liked with more comfort at the top. You're gonna love these.. the wool ones will get a ton of wear in MA.

    @kickstand awesome... that color looks great on you! Super relaxed in the Vittorio suit shape.

    Drooling over the wool Doyles but not sure I *need* one.

    No time for pics, but I received my Saffiano bags and blue Teba, and they're awesome. Gotta work these into rotation sooner than later.
