I just used KoreanBuddy to proxy something, and it was smooth. Granted, I haven’t received the item yet.
did not know about that, thank you!

I think Mr. P carried that, maybe wait for their sale and check it when they start adding stock from previous seasons.
good idea

Y’all were not kidding about how soft that pecora nera is. @dkboze did you already order xxl? I’m a large and got an XL in the sweater. It fits well. I think I could gone to xxl for nice slouch in the chest and torso, but I’d worry about it being a tad long in the body.
just came in, crazy soft and perfect in chest and shoulders but no kidding about it being long in the body. it's doubling up and poofing out. might have to hope an XL comes back somewhere

Hi guys! Here is our latest article "Textures" about "Mulesing-free merino wool"
"Mulesing is a cruel practice towards animals that consists of cutting the flesh around the sheep's bottom, without any use of anesthetics, in order to prevent the spread of parasites. This skin removal is a widespread practice in merino sheep farming, especially in Australia.." Read more
Take care. Nicolas

Some pics I got from a little shoot my friends and I did. Hopefully these pics give a better sense of the Grandad coat in motion and how well the belt plays into gathering the volume in the back to nail that relaxed elegant vibe. It's the best I can do to convey the nature of it online, and I think the work that the team at DBF does deserves recognition. I'm not at all sponsored – I just like to promote good, hard work when I see it.

@OccultaVexillum Unfortunately, due to the sanitary context, we had to cancel some references, and sadly, our padded quilted jacket is one of them. You won't be able to purchase it this season.
Please let me know if you need anything! Always happy to help!
Best, Nicolas
Such a shame! I've had my eye on that quilted jacket for months... it's so wonderful. I love the relaxed aesthetic (especially the collar) much more than what e.g. Barbour or Filson have to offer.

Can anyone recommend an alternative retailer with a similar quilted jacket?

Hello everyone ! Following your numerous comments, we are studying our fitting on larger sizes. Could those of you who size an American L kindly give us your chest measurement ? If you are an American XL or XXL would love to know your chest measurement too. It would greatly help us ! If any of you have your full measurements you can send them to me [email protected]. Warmly, Deborah

Deborah,

I typically take a Large/50 in DBF (reference points: "Essential" Linen Shirt; One-Pleat Cord Pants; Pecora Nera Sweater; Grandad Coat; Parisian Mac; Painter Jacket; Cord Easy Pants; and Linen Herringbone Easy Pants).

I am 5'11", 175-185 lbs (depending on how much pasta I've been eating/red wine I've been drinking), and between a 39" and 40.5" chest. I am broad shouldered for my size. Also, 34" waist (pants), 35" sleeve (shirt), and about a 30-32" inseam (pants), depending on my desired break (by reference, I did not hem the easy pants from this season).

I have mentioned this elsewhere, but I find your garments to be on the slim side of TTS. I typically take an L in other brands - although I can jump down to a medium from time to time.

Newc.

I am currently between an L and XL and have a 43" chest and am 6'2".
When i was a solid XL i was 44.5" chest.
The size 52 grandad coat fits me very well, as do the oversized linen shirts from a few seasons ago in a 42.
I found the XL in the corduroy essential shirt too small and went up to a XXL, and found the XXL in the merino mock neck from last winter to be too tight to be wearable.

I really love the DBF brand, it just makes me hesitant to buy internationally when i'm not confident what will fit me.

Did anybody take advantage of this when it was offered?
I completely forgot about it until today, somehow.
But if anybody got one please share your thoughts.

I guess I should mention - I found the linen essential shirt and the linen herringbone easy pants to be smaller than a typical large. I still took the same size, but they are noticeably slimmer.
