Balmacaan in the wild yesterday. Layered up over a tee and sweatshirt. I’ve been reaching for this grey herringbone nearly daily right now, it goes with everything.

Nice. They got the length right on that one. If I could make one adjustment to the Polos, it would be to add a couple inches in length.

Love the look, DonRaphael.
Makes me really think about including a green sportscoat now. Lol.

Deets on the tie?
Thank you, sir. Green sportcoats are staples. I currently have four and they all see frequent wear.

The tie is from (former?) affiliate vendor Conrad Wu. I have this particular make up in five different colours. They're a joy to wear. This particular one is burnt orange schnappe printed silk. I believe that the burgundy version of it is currently being sold at eBay.

You read my mind, I was about to post the same exact thing. I wear a 46 and I'm only 5'10, so it works for me as it's a little longer but I don't think it would for most guys as far as reaching slightly below their knees or upper calf which would be ideal.

Size 46 (sized up from my normal 44L) comes just above my knee. I'm 6'2". Perfect would have it end below the knee a bit.

Exactly! Hopefully Rick will take that into consideration as I’m looking for a Navy for next F/W.

Can we MTO those, Rick?

@spiermackay

As you have mentioned several times there is a +/- 1 cm production margin on RTW. Is MTO made with the same specs or to a higher degree of accuracy?
MTO is same specs but more rigorous checking procedure.

Sorry if this was brought up, but there is no way to fix the bubbling on the collar correct? Always been laundered cold, think this was probably the first batch of OTR Oxfords with the selectable sleeve lengths.

Have to replace the collar. Send it back we can get that done.

This happened to all my lightweight summer OCBD’s collar and cuffs after the first wash.
Really? The lightweight oxford didn't have any fusing in them. They were unfused. I'll have a look.

@spiermackay Rick, you should consider some gurkha styled trousers in the future. These are courtesy of Lopez Aragon.

Has anyone purchased the Zanieri Brown Houndstooth coat? If so, any recommendations on sizing? The website recommends going true-to-size, but I'd like to confirm before pulling the trigger.

I went TTS on mine and it fits me well.

Not sure if we are still talking about FW 2020, but I'd really like to see more of the balmacaan/ car coats in some darker, slightly less trad-y gun club check (grey/brown/navy). Also, I like the idea of using flap patch pockets (same ones on the polo coat) rather than the slanted ones. That would be my perfect go to winter coat.
