I'm guessing this will just show up in my mailbox before too long and this will be updated as delivered. I can't remember if it's happened to me before:

Did the Brisbane Moss moleskin sport coats run slim or large in comparison to other fabrics? I'm asking because I remember reading they were unstructured and "wore like a sweater", which could mean that they'd feel less snug than something with canvassing.

Asking because I have decided to complete my FW18 Lovat trousers with a sportcoat to make a casual suit. Before going M2M, which would make my suit wearable only next year given the lead time for production, I'm hoping to track one down from someone else and have posted in the BST thread in that regard.

My lovat sportscoats from two seasons ago were more snug than jackets in the same size/cut from the same year. This was primarily because the fabric was thicker. They are definitely not larger or more loose in fitting. That being said I'm not sure if this was accounted for in the most recent release.

hmmm I’ve only ever noticed fairly small fit variances that basically fit into the overall tolerances. Some things end up a little tighter, some a little looser, but nothing major that would typically make me want to change sizes (the exception being the cigar linen last year. The contemp made up big so I went down to a slim). Keep in mind the difference between the slim and contemporary fits is pretty much as close as tolerance allows. So play around between the two fits depending how a certain cloth makes up. A slim that makes up on the big side or a contemp on the small side would basically be the same.

also, the Drago emerald is awesome.

Gents, it's that time of year. We're working on FW20 - actually I'm behind a bit with placing fabric orders.

So what would you like to see for FW20

Kindly remember not to post pics of products from other forum affiliates!
1) More flannel suits - missed the grey and navy flannel, bring a charcoal flannel too
2) More soft sportcoats, like the Drago emerald herringbone (I don't have it, but I have some from other brands - LBM, Brando, etc . - that wear like a cardigan). They're awesome for traveling - can be worn casually, or to dress up a bit
3) more sweaters like the cable knit - turtleneck and shawl collar - but also in donegal and/or other interesting fabrics
4) LS polos
5) Moleskin in the 5-pocket style
6) flannel shirts (plaids and solids)
7) heavyweight casual shirts (but not quite a shacket)
8) More light/medium grey flannel trousers - common sizes always sell out so fast
9) Updated Commuter parka in more fabrics
10) puffer vest in flannel with buttons (not snaps)
11) Dress boots but with storm welt
12) Fox Bros boxer briefs (just seeing if anyone is still reading...)

Just ordered my first S&M and first double breasted suit! How long does the ground shipping typically take?

Has anyone else experienced large variance in SC fit in the same size? I have the drago emerald herringbone and the navy flannel in the same size and fit, but they fit differently. The difference in weight is marginal 10 gsm (3 %), but one of them is considerably tighter than the other. Am somewhat worried upon receiving my brown herringbone tweed jacket now, which is even heavier (45 gsm).
My first Spier Mackay order included 4 jackets, all the same size/cut. I only kept one of them due to fit variances. Two of the three returned were very similar fabric/weight of the one I did keep. The fourth was a regular suit and felt quite roomy on me. More variance than what has been described in this thread, IMO. Not salty about it or anything, comes with the territory, but does make me second guess purchasing, esp given I'd be out the $ or an exchanged product for 4+ weeks all said and done.

Can you include in your suit offerings two options for pants : high rise & contemporary? One could be MTO. I am referring mainly to availability. Also , for the high rise trousers , include buttons for suspenders.

FW17 moss sportcoats ran small, FW18 ones were normal. You can tell what year they were if they have the Moss tag on the inside, that's a 18 one.

You need to stop posting fits, @Burzan
I just ordered the EThomas Faded Gun Check because of your pics.

Also, the Drago Emerald is indeed great.
