    I think they're all busy watching the game...that is the folks on the other side of the Atlantic.

    I posted mine a couple weeks ago when I first received it in the mail. Mine had a slightly harder 3 button lapel than I was expecting and had seen from other pictures of SM neapolitan sport coats. I also found a snag on the right arm so it got sent back. My size in the neapolitan was sold out, so I'm getting the 2 button hopsack as the replacement and will post more pictures when I receive it.

    I realized that true navy is not the right suit color for me, and will be sending the Neapolitan hopsack sport coat (38 slim) and trousers (30 slim) back - in case anyone is waiting for a return to be available.

    I feel the same way. It's too dark of a navy for me. Plus as has been discussed, these latest Neapolitan jackets have sleeves that are much longer (about 1.25 inches by my estimation) than previous iterations. I believe Rick said this wasn't intended, and hopefully is rectified going forward.

    One more post here before I ship mine back on Friday:

    Anyone in the U.S. interested in the new navy hopsack Neapolitan sportcoat with matching trousers? Size 42R jacket, 34 trousers, both contemporary fit. Unaltered, never worn, tags still attached. These are both sold out.

    Price would be exactly what I paid: $416.00 USD, plus shipping. Only selling both together, will not split up. PM me if interested.

    Mind posting the actual front rise measurement on that size 34 trouser? I might be interested in the suit.

    Received my Guabello Navy Neapolitan.

    Intriguing. I'll post pics once I've gotten the pants and sleeves shortened.

    Edit: Threw on the jacket, and this is definitely not a jacket that's as forgiving for the more rotund gentleman as SM's peak lapels or standard ones feel. My reward for when I lose another two inches. Shoulders and chest fit great tho.

    Received a light wash denim shirt yesterday. Probably hitting it with the @mossrockss bleach treatment tonight.

    Wish me luck gents. I’ll try and remember to take more pics.

    This is light wash? It looks darker than my medium wash. Definitely bleach it :)

    Yeah it's a light wash according to the tag, it not much lighter than my faded rinsed denim. Will keep you posted on the lightening.

    The cloth feels fantastic too, love it so far.

    So, where are you Navy Hopsack Neapolitan 44L who think that it doesn't fit you or something like that hehehe.

    I suspect it was mislabeled.

    Completely agree on the fantastic feel. I should get the light wash, too.

    I wouldn’t mess with the denim shirt. I love the color. I’m sure one day spier and mackay will come out with a lighter rinse.

    I’m planning a second light wash in MTM to serve as my mid wash.
