    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I feel like I should hate everything Fear of God does on principle, but I kinda like these:

    I do too! I feel like Greats should copy them for the public good, like the fashion equivalent of the epi pen

    Some of the Deveaux stuff looks pretty nice even if it's nothing "new". This is from some of the Carson Street Clothiers guys, right?

    Are you talking about from current fit or older ones?

    fwiw I had SS15 in black calf and it was thick/substantial leather. do the SS versions sometimes use a slightly thinner leather? probably yes

    if you are able to obtain the weight of the jacket it would probably give you a better idea about the thickness of the leather

    Knowing what leather it is helps as well. As a general rule, I think the s/s leathers are marginally thinner, but I wear my s/s in fall without an issue.

    This is kind of cute though it does remind one more than a little of Tavi Gevinson and other fashion children gone by.

    The leather changes season to season, but it's not spring = thin, winter = thick. The leather, fit, and hardware of the jacket have changed quite a bit over time

    Interested in sort of an alternative suit. I'm thinking forward-leaning, maybe a little weird, nothing that looks too old-timey. should pass as a traditional suit at a glance.

    I've been thinking get matching separates from Engineered Garments, maybe corduroy, though EG's corduroy pants are really 5-pocket jeans, so I'm somewhat put off. I have a Qlomaire suit, and it ticks all the boxes, but the blazer on those has a thrift store vibe.

    What's out there like this?

    Check out the two Camoshita suits with the "easy" pants at No Man Walks Alone. Blue wool seersucker, and burgundy wool corduroy. Both are great, I want.

    That Linen wool W jacket is so nice! They probably don't have larger sizes 50/52 though I'm guessing.....
