    I'm a big fan of the 1.5" cuff myself. This is the hem length on the RRL Officer Chino.

    Mike I know you went into great detail about the warmth level of the pea coats, but the only thing I can compare it to are the Thinsulated JCrew Peas...how would these rate next to those? No idea the oz on them. I like the grey a whole lot....

    For what it's worth, we got these in up in Maine and from my experience they fit VERY slim to begin with. I wear a 38 jacket and I found the Large to be incredibly comfortable in our gray stripe peacoat. I think a medium would be constrictive (this is with no layering, just a collared shirt). so if youre between sizes, definately go up one, maybe even that 1.5.

    if you guys got the same one, it might be something to keep in mind. the other thing I can say about them is that there is no better deal in that price range: Fidelity kills it.

    Interested in the Gitman Overdye Oxfords... I remember last season they fit almost a full size smaller than gitman's regular offerings. Can i expect the same this time around?

    I'm a small in Gitman Vintage and the overdye oxford fits the same as my other gitmans.

    Just ordered my first Epaulet piece—a pair of the Air Force Blue Worsted Wool trousers in 32 (looks like the last pair, too). I can't wait to get them, and I hope they fit!

    Hey Mike,

    Do you / will you guys be carrying any black chinos / trousers of preferably a fall weight and made of cotton? I'm not specifically looking for something pitch black, just something unmistakably darker than your navy offerings.

    Thank you!

    I haven't seen the J.Crew piece in person, but in looking at their online shop, I'd say that the Fidelity jacket is comparable in terms of thickness. The wool has a nice density to it which is sturdier than any peacoat that I've seen from a mainstream brand. It's not as heavy or as warm as Schott's 32oz navy peacoat, but that one's so thick that the fit gets kind of screwed up. If you have a seriously warm sweater or a down liner from someone like Nau or Patagonia, then you can probably make it through most of the NYC winter with this. They'll be some crazy freezing February day where you're gonna need a Ghostface Killah-style down coat though.

    Yup, these jackets fit VERY slim. If you want to layer anything substantial under it, you'll probably need to size up one. Good call.

    No, I found the sizing to be roughly equivalent to the other Gitman Vintage shirts. I bet that this Overdye oxford cloth shrinks a lot with the commercial washing. That was probably a surprise last year, but they planned for it and sized the cut pattern up accordingly for this year.

    Thank you!

    Hmm, not really. I've toyed with the idea of making a black chino, but honestly the demand for it is pretty sparse. I never say never though! We'll get an awesome graphite chino in about six weeks which will be a dark grey.

    Ah sorry, we're totally out of Petrol Blue for the season. We'll restock the Navy Flannels shortly though.
    Yes, it will probably arrive around the same time.
