    Is it just me or is the rise on the new linen trousers slightly higher? I'm definitely over the lower rise options and specifically looking to mix things up with a higher rise going forward. Hopefully, I can pull it off with my Dad bod.

    Depends on the color. The sand was even lower than normal but wheat was higher. I found the sizing of the linen pairs all over the map so it’s worth trying every color before deciding on ordering a bunch.

    Nah, that looks good for right out of the box. I will say my tailor had to take in the back center seam as well as sides -- lots of excess fabric for a slim fit. But your shoulders look fine. As for the color, indoor lighting doesn't do the tobacco any favors, but it does have some serious saturation. So you need to bring the contrast. I happened to have it on as we speak (more indoor lighting). It's not quite as versatile as I hoped, but I like it a lot.

    I got Wheat and Indigo. Both seemed a bit higher.

    The fresco is amazing in person. I love the color.

    Both the linen pants I received in 32 Contemp are 10.5" front rise. The navy fits very slightly slimmer probably because of fabric differences, but not enough to change sizes.

    The quarters look too open in all these jackets IMO.

    Seems like if you even hunch or bend over slightly you'd be flashing tie/belt/shirt etc.

    I think MTM Minnis Fesco trousers were $250 CAD a year ago. May have changed since then.

    Yeah I definitely understand that concern much better now.

    I notice the button stance seems to be inconsistent as well looking at all the jackets. Some of them look higher than the elbow line, some of them look lower.

    Disagree. It's one of the prominent features of Neapolitan style jackets. I especially like the open quarters on the sportcoats. Gives them a slightly more casual, sporty, rakish look.

    It's not like the open quarters are very extreme, but if you dislike them, perhaps stick with the non-Neapolitan S&M stuff?

    I agree with all the comments that slightly higher rise, fuller cut trousers are best with the Neapolitan jackets, though. Like this:
