• CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19

    The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.

    If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

The two Guabello jackets are Neo. One hopsack is Neo. The Guabello Hopsack coming is Neo. The Ethomas jackets coming are Neo. The Minnis Linen jackets coming are Neo. The Minnis seersucker coming is Neo. The Sondrio brown linen check is Neo.

And yes. Most regular guys despise the Neapolitan fit. Lapels are too wide. Why is it curved? Why is it a 3 button. Jacket is too long. Everything that you probably love about it is what they don't.
Wow- a lot of new stuff coming down the pipe.

Ooooooh did you spill any deets on the Minnis linens already? Matching pants to accompany?

The shoulders just don't work on me. Everything else is good. Take the shoulders from the regular cut and put them on the Neo and it's an instant-cop for me.

Echoing this comment too.

I had been eying the navy commuter parka since it came out, and when it went final sale, it was simply too good to pass up.

I’m coming from a Canada Goose parka that never fit me quite right (sold on eBay for more than I paid, so it was at least a good store of value!). The Spier and Mackay commuter parka, in my view, actually has a better fabric (mostly wool, with some poly, whereas most big name parkas are purely synthetic). The down fill is lighter than the Canada Goose, so my feeling is that it really is meant to be worn over a suit jacket, and in that case, it’s still plenty warm. I wouldn’t want to go out with only a t-shirt in underneath, but if I’m wearing a shawl collar cardigan, it’s a very warm setup. Even the fur is pretty good - not as dense as the Canada Goose, but shockingly close given the price difference.

Perhaps the best thing, however, is the overall fit and length. Roomy without being boxy means that it looks great, but also allows for proper layering, and I can go out and shovel snow in this thing without feeling like the seams are going to blow out. The length is also generous and at 6’ it’s much appreciated. Too many winter parkas feel like they’re going to expose my waistline and that’s a no go for winter wear.

If anyone else was on the fence with the parka, go for it.View attachment 1343671View attachment 1343672View attachment 1343673View attachment 1343674View attachment 1343675
Thanks for detailed review and photos. I think that problem with parka is lack of information.
Nobody have an idea how it looks like, what kind of fur, armholes, look without the hood etc.. and unfortunately S&M didn't provide any answer for this.
Anyway I also put the order and waiting for it soon

Yes. But they actually will be sold as suits. One Brown one Emerald Green.

Don't ask for previews, I don't have anything yet with the production delays.

Sweetness. Can't go wrong with le Minnis. As silly as I felt buying a duplicate of both the Grey and Navy Frescos from SS19, I'm extremely pleased that I did.

I also have some collar gap with the Neo cut. I am waiting to try out something in regular cut to see if it will work with me.

Please tell me more about the E. Thomas jackets that are coming? What colours? I suppose no previews yet?

Finally got the camel DB. The color is much muted in real life than the web.

I ended up sizing up to 40S as my regular 38S is sold out and because the polo coat in 38S feels snug sometimes for me. But this cloth is much thinner than the Zanieri and I feel like having a lot of room in the chest. Here’s how it fits I’m just wondering if the look warrants a size down or I can just go with the relaxed look

Are you planning on wearing a jacket under? If so, please wear one and take new pics. If not, I do think it's in the larger side, but that's just my personal opinion. Looks like there's to much fabric in the chest area around the chest pocket for example.

I received mine as well today and love the colour. I think the real life colours is much better than in the pictures. As you said, it's more muted and almost caramel coloured and not as light as a true camel. Really liking it.

If the 40 slim is a bit too roomy in the chest, but it fits well everywhere would you say that it’ll be safe to give the 38 contemporary a try?
