    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.

    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. :slayer:

    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.

    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.
