    Leather is good. A little softer and thicker than my other five-zips.

    Breaking in period is basically nothing since it's a soft leather. I've only worn it a handful of times, and only owned it for a year, so I don't know how much I can say about the aging process. But it's a nice leather -- just a bit thicker than my other five-zips.

    Thanks for input. Just one more question, what is your usual suit/ jacket size and what size did you get for this 5 zip?

    My chest measures 37". I wear between an XS and S in most things, or 36 and 38. I took for a 46 EU for this navy five zip.

    I've been looking for a band collar shirt but could only really find crisp white ones. Would size up for a looser fit. Maybe it's the light blue stripes throwing me off but would this look out of place with Geller stuff?

    Not that into the band collar + stripes combo there. I guess I'm not that into vertically striped shirts in general, so maybe it's just personal bias.

    Individualized has a pretty nice range of fabrics and options, including a band collar, via Epaulet's MTO program: http://epauletnewyork.com/collections/special-order/Made-to-Order-Shirting

    Might be an option if you're not finding anything you like OTR.

    Maybe contact @snowmanxl to see what he could do with one of his band collar shirts?

    Looking for a cheapish relaxed trouser, something like this but in navy, pleated if possible, high rise, with belt loops if elasticized waist. First pic is other shop's store brand. COS is out of stock in my size, Uniqlo has has some weird as hell smart pants. Also saw these Schneider signal trousers from spring but they look tapered. Lemaire, MH too expensive.

    Couple Schneider shirts for Fall/winter.

    I've only owned sweaters/knits and I really like them - though I'm not sure the sizing will work for these (I'm typically a 5 in knits and these are both 6? Could get tailored I suppose).

    Could check out Billy Reid as well - they usually have some pretty cool relaxed trousers at various price points

    Somebody just mentioned SK Manor Hill in the RFT thread. Their band collar shirts look pretty nice: http://skmanorhill.com/collections/tops

    Off the band collar shirt topic, but they have a pretty nice looking bathrobe sort of outerwear thing too. Or did we just see one of those in this thread?

    Id advise against getting these size 6 shirts if you are 5 in sweaters.

    For outwear, I size down one. I take 3 in outwear and 4 in shirts and sweaters.

    Im the same in both sweaters and shirts. Im mostly 48, sometimes 50 and size 5 for shirts is perfect. I tried 6 once and i was floating in it.
    I can understand sizing down 1 on sweaters because shoulders are usually wide. But then the length and pits would be a concern for me
