@slows2k, the dreaded pull-ups are your friend!
Dreading the prospect of the other “pull-ups” even more, as I age,
Since covid started and gyms closed I switched to doing gymnastics rings, so at some point I'll have the traps needed to fill it out a little bit. Those male gymnasts have huge upper bodies.

Now if the sun would just go away for a little while I could actually wear the coat out... I've always envied East Coast winters.

@slows2k coat looks really good! I'm glad I was able to help you out. Have fun playing around with the belt in different configurations and figuring out how many different ways it works for you. It's honestly such an easy to coat to just throw on top of everything, but I will say a long coat makes storage when you're out of the house a little difficult sometimes haha

Yeah seeing someone shorter in it helped me feel more comfortable pulling the trigger. This kind of thing is an investment for me, and not an easy one to make. But having done so I am extremely happy with it. I'm letting it hang in the closet open for now so the weight helps ease the creases on the lapel. I think @Newcomer pointed this out back earlier in this thread. I'm not sure why the lapel is creased so high up. But it's coming along now. And yeah, storage while out, especially on the west coast where no one wears coats anymore, can be really difficult.

If I needed to hang up a fleece I'm sure I could find accommodation, but actual outerwear is a different story!

could just be a result of packaging for sure. I bought mine in person at Kai D. so it wasn't packaged tightly in box. a bit of steam might speed it up too

I like the new Christian Kimber casual jacket but like the DBF16 golf jacket even better. Very nice summer looks in general.

Thanks for the heads up @Nicolas DBF . Love the elegant simplicity.
Curious if you can share a GSM rating for this knit vest to help me gauge the thickness.
Hello, the knit vest is around 80g. I'm glad you like our new collection SS21 :)

I'm also curious about the jewelry used in the lookbook, especially the necklaces. Any plans for a collab? Or recommendations on an artisan?

Hi everyone,
Looking for sizing advice on the cord or moleskin trousers from FW. Would a size 46 fit a 30 waist? Comparing measurements with my other pants, these seem to have quite a large waist, although maybe this is because of a higher rise?
Thanks!
