When are you going to wear it and do a WAYWRN?????
I ordered it 4/17. I was really surprised as well. Fit pics won't be until earliest tomorrow. I have to go car shopping with my wife tonight. Most miserable thing in the world to me.
One more. Buttons are a darker MOP type. I hope they work with it.

I don't wear undershirts, so strictly one and done for me. Plus, ewww.
Is it a suit or a blazer? I like the fabric. Can't wait
It's a blazer but since I bought a pair of pants (light grey) I paid for their starter suit package. He was cool with me doing that vs. a full suit. I'll get more wear this way since I hardly wear full suits. If I get home early enough I'll try and run some test fits. I tried on the Jacket, it feels good so far. Fingers crossed.
How does the fabric compare to your other jackets?
It's half lined so it feels light weight. May be a bit thin but I'm good with that. I wanted something I can wear in the summer and if it's winter I'm wearing a Jacket anyway. It's 100% wool, albeit their "starter" package wool not fine Italian wool or anything. As they call it "X Level 1 Super 120 Essentials" One thing I just noticed is it has front darts...Not sure how I feel about that. They threw the lummel on there but it's removable.
I'll give it a more thorough review within the next couple days.
i wish i could get away with no undershirt but its a must for me.
and its not ewww at all to wear a shirt twice when you do wear undershirts. though with a wife beater, if you do perspire, that would be eww.
Unfortunately, I have to wear an undershirt because my nipples are really dark and pointy...I don't know how else to say it.
I'm genuinely interested in why an undershirt is a must?
I'm happy to be converted it's just that i can't see it and haven't worn an undershirt/vest/dirty maud/singlet for years
I wear one because pit stains. The combo of deodorant and myself leave some not so pretty marks and I'd rather they be on cheap undershirts.
wow...I must be blessed. I don't wear deodorant and I still don't perspire there. Hee ha.
1. i wear a jewish garment (tzitzis), kind of like a small cotton poncho with fringes, under my shirt and its not comfortable (also i feel its not respectful to have it direct against my body although it is allowed), without an undershirt underneath it. essentially i am always wearing 3 shirts, but thats cool, i am used to it.
2. i sweat sometimes, depending on my levels of activity, and do not like dark wet spots on my pits during the day.
all in all if i did not have those considerations i doubt i would wear undershirts at all.
Well, respect to you El S
As I said this place just keeps giving, I live and learn and am better for it.
