I just received the double pleat “greige” herringbone pants. Really nice fabric and I like the roomy cut to pair with a chunky sweater for weekend outings. This is my third DBF piece and I think the aesthetic defines dressy casual for me.
FWW, my first item was the GrandDad coat and it is my favourite. A legacy piece that you can pass on if you look after it, like the original inspiration.

For the smaller men (I'm normally a XS), do the granddad coats fit ridiculously on a smaller/slimmer frame? I have 36/38" chest and about 5'8" and am worried the jacket will be too big in the chest/shoulders and in total length (+ length of arms).

^Raglan sleeves have a pretty accommodating fit imo. Length of coat may be an issue depending on how long you want your coat. Sleeves are fairly easy to adjust but adjusting length of coat may throw off the balance.
