A lot of you guys are professionals when it comes to posting fit pics. I am not. Here’s my best attempt, though. After many rounds, here’s the best of ‘em. I admire folks who are more skilled than I in this. Tried to get a couple shots of the covert twills in action, which my tailor saved and was able to make wearable.
Sportcoat: SM shepherds check
Shirt: SM fine twill
Tie: Knottery grenadine
Trews: SM covert twills
Shoes: Yanko Belgians; Meermin suede oxfords

Dang, really hope they make these stone coverts again.

What was the issue with the coverts?
If I have been reading correctly the past bit, it was that they were too tight in the seat and thigh, like a size or two too small, last time they were released.

Well done ny friend.

I have this SC as well and love it. Looking forward to hear your thoughts on this year's iteration of thus jacket. I've abstained from acquiring it as I'm afraid it'll look to similar. Also, the mentioning of black in it kind of put me off. Love to hear your thoughts on both those matters once in your hands.
Thank you Sir. I have seen a closeup of the the swatch of the red Moon and i'm confident it's different enough, the pattern scale is also larger than this one I believe. The website pics I feel are a little over exposed.


@dapperclassic, this is probably my personal favorite outfit from you. I usually see you wear full suits, which you do very well, but this smart casual look is exactly what I'm aiming for.

Sorry for the belated response, I'm on the other side of the globe...
Many thanks my friend. I don't actually wear full suits often, I mix and match separates mostly if that's what you meant?

For those of you with side tabs on the trousers, I have a question. I know they function to adjust the waist, but how much adjustment is able to be cinched down? Is it like an half an inch in the waist or maybe an inch?
Around 0.75". S&M trousers come up quite large on the waist I found.

Looking forward to a comparison once you receive it. Maybe I'll acquire it myself if it's different enough.

I am wondering how these compare to last year's covert twill weave trousers @spiermackay
Would purchase all of them immediately if I was assured they fit significantly looser than last seasons covert
What was the issue with the coverts?
yeah, I bought a couple pairs last season and they were waaaay too slim in Contemporary- like, skintight against my calves. They also seemed 1/2-3/4” too small in the waist for my usual size. Thankfully there was quite a bit of excess fabric, so they’re fine now that they’ve been let out.

Damn. I hope those Guabello are similar to the Sondrio's denim cotton/linen.

To clarify, my initial comment was not about the makeup but more about the difference in the fabric/weave/weight. Didn't mean to bring up the topic of the ill fitting coverts again!

Did you receive a shipping notice yet? I know it was only the other day they dropped, waiting I'm waiting anxiously to get my notification.

The problem in a nutshell (last year's mid grey covert vs this year's tan corduroy, both 34 contemporary):
