Does anyone know whether the sleeve length for jackets is measured straight down from shoulder to cuff or if it follows the curvature of the sleeve? Some pics to illustrate. Confusingly, the S&M website says to measure from the tip of the shoulder bone straight down the arm, but the illustration on their page shows the measurement following the bend at the elbow. Bit worried that I used the wrong measurement method for an MTO after this occurred to me.

I believe it’s taken from the shoulder seam, straight down the middle of the sleeve.

Was hoping that the flannels of this season had side tabs. :-(
It seems a lot of their OTR trousers with side tabs are high rise, but my guess is there would be at least one more brand of flannel trousers other than VBC coming as we still haven't seen all of the SC's and such to come

Has anyone heard or seen if the sizing on cardigans/vnecks changes this year? Specifically the necks since they were humongous last year. @spiermackay
