    I ordered this jacket in two sizes and am returning. The 40" was way too tight in the shoulders and the 42" was too big everywhere else. The fabric is also heavy and it doesn't lay well on the body. Looks boxy. It's a shame no one else makes anything like the Boggi nor Mandelli jackets. Those are amazing.

    polo rl


    ive seen a bunch of liddesdales and variants in person... for some reason theyre very popular in istanbul. its not "shapely" enough if youre looking for the SC look.

    the polo is nice

    Burberry makes a few decent looking ones but kinda sucks they're only in black

    Thanks for the tip. The RL quilted SC went on sale yesterday. Just bought 2, will keep the better fitting. Including an additional 10% code it came to $250/ea. Nice.

    What's the etiquette on wearing a quilted sportcoat like this indoors, say to a theatre or at the dinner table? I just purchased one - it's tailored close to the body, has the button configuration and lapels of a sportcoat, and looks good with a shirt and tie. I want to make sure that in terms of etiquette - when a jacket is preferred/required - it would be more akin to a wool sportcoat than a Barbour or Lavenham jacket. Or is that a stretch?

    I have only ever had one quilted "SC." Personally I treated it more like a jacket and less like a SC. I generally wore a button-front and a sweater underneath and took the jacket off each time I entered a building (as one would with a piece of outerwear). While I like the more polished look/formality of the "SC" cut, I don't think of it as a true piece of tailored clothing.

    Agreed. Though the Mandelli is a work of art in its own right.

    Burberry, but Burberry Prorsum:

    A bit pricier, however.

    That's a great jacket. Burberry gets a lot of hate but I have a London short duffel that I really enjoy. Looking to pick up a Prosrum trench in the spring.
