Obviously -.- thanks. Looking forward to see you wear it in WAYWARN.
Not a law firm person, but is it 100% linen?
I think you'll be dissatisfied with the wrinkles as the day goes on and what will you pair it with? Worsted? That would be incongruous and a bad choice, IMO. Given your work context, this is I think too casual a jacket, in which case, wear it on weekends or casual days with a light colored linen BD shirt, linen or cotton-linen pants etc, jacket unbuttoned, loafers (lapels are a bit on the thin side too, though that's not a deal breaker for me).
I'm guessing you won't find it very versatile for work, but enjoy it elsewhere. I'd go with the smaller, unbuttoned.
I don't mind wearing linen with worsted pants.
Though I agree, there may be a tad bit of incongruity, but that's better than the obvious choice (chinos, which don't look good. Ever. Sorry chino folks. You know how I stand. I'll take the most humble pair of wool trousers over the nicest chinos you can throw at me). Really, linen pants are the best bet to go with linen jackets (or shatnez pants for the win!), but I dislike all the wrinkles that come with the pants. On a jacket, it's charming. On pants.....ehhhh...
Well you've pulled it off.
I feel odd wearing worsted with linen. I have a linen-wool-silk blend trouser which has more texture (a bit slubby) and I think that works. It's more texture really that I find to be the issue. I'd pair that blend (tan) with the jacket NS has on.
But linen pants are awesome. You have to embrace the wrinkles, but in the right outfit, it enhances the relaxed look. I wouldn't wear them to work though.
It was me. Clag is right, I bought the shoes and he sent the boots. He was quite responsive when I wanted to exchange them for shoes, but when I decided to keep them he stopped responding. It is a shame because the stitching on the inside of the boot was uneven and dug into my heel while I walked. I probably wouldn't have been difficult to fix, but he completely stopped responding to me.
I like the boots, they just aren't very comfortable due to that problem. Other than that I really like wearing them.
It's cool. Chino's are awesome.
Haters gonna hate.
Perhaps it's an issue a cobbler can fix?

Oh, crap! It's just a pre-season game. Bummer.
So, I was told that the Eidos Napoli SC is available in size 42R when I contacted Carson Street by mail. I'm usually size 40R. Does the jacket fit TTS, @in stitches and @Monkeyface ? Or are they small-ish? Thanks.
Yes, I banned him and deleted all his posts.
Lol. Me too!
Oof. Its a bit snug/high in the arm, but I am not sure that I would say to size up necessarily. Call up/email CSC and ask them for the measurements you need. I asked for pit to pit, shoulder seams across, across waist, half girth and length BOC. If you get that info and know your measurements, that should let you know if the 42 will work or not.
I guess that is the only good solution. Wanted to close the deal as fast as possible before someone grabs it in case it was snug-fitting. Thanks, appreciate the help.
Eidos sportscoats are on the slim side, but fit TTS. I don't think sizing up will work, unless you are a big 40R. I suppose it doesn't hurt to get measurements.
Thanks for the response. Well, I'm kind of a big 40R atm because of weightlifting. But it's temporary because of intense training during summer. I've asked for measurements. Would love to have the SC as it looks spectacular, but if it doesn't fit it doesn't.
I"m a 42
My pleasure. I hope it all works out for you.
It is 100% linen, which is part of the reason it is so casual. I'll have to give this some thought as I share Clag's sentiment that I rarely wear chino's.
