    Yes, I was curious how it looked on different body types. The shoulder looks interesting. It seems to have little to no padding with a roped sleeve head.

    Thanks.
    Yes, this is a known bug we're still working out (re: the shopping cart using the default picture instead of the item selected by the customer).

    Thanks for the clarification.

    Sadly, $30 for shipping a square to the UK is a bit too rich for me. I appreciate that checkout says that this price would cover shipping for up to 4 squares and so it makes sense as a proportion of overall cost if I wanted that number. Unfortunately, I'm small-timer enough to only want that one, so will have to give it a miss this time. I'll just have to be envious at those lucky enough to get it instead. Nonetheless, I look forward to seeing how your collection grows and wish you all the best of luck, and should I end up ordering something else more substantial in the future, I'll be sure to see if the square's still around, and add it to the order.

    Again, good luck with this exciting venture! [​IMG]

    ^^This is a legitimate concern, and something I'm still trying to figure out (the cheapest/most reliable way to ship overseas).

    I'm happy to ship packages to the UK by regular mail at a lower shipping rate.
    This will probably mean forgoing tracking, however.

    Great looking stuff, Wale! I remember how honored I felt when I saw a pic of my trees on your site some years ago. Keep up the good work!

    Great, this is something I wanted to do, but did not have the courage to do. You have a strong build, it looks good on you, I wonder how it look on others. I personally prefer soft and roped shoulder as well, though more in with structured jacket than you are I suppose. I also think you're great with layering, a lot guys are not, is that the look you want as well? I like your strong color (reminds me of paul stuart phineas cole actually) without being overdone, really wish a success on your part.

    By the way can you post measurements for your jacket? Also I think while your picture is great for catalog sort of thing, it's distracting if I just want to see a plain view.

    Love the brand, story and looks.

    How well does the jacket do with sloped shoulders? If it doesn't fit me I will still go for some pocket squares.

    Because the shoulders are unpadded, in my opinion, the jacket will likely work better for sloped shoulders than a different jacket with traditional padded/structured shoulders. Particularly over time as the jacket molds to the wearer's natural contours.

    You got the Back Shoulder Width on 36 and 38 reversed?

    Looks like I am a solid 36 in any case.
