Chiming in to report that I am happy with the L in the chunky cardigan, and that it fits about the same as my other L sweaters, despite the dimensions on paper being much smaller. There is a ton of stretch in the sweater so along with the raglan sleeve you will have a lot more give than normal. Length-wise, it covers about half my butt. I am about 5'9" 220lbs and normally wear a 44R - 46S (or 46R for S&M since there's no S), with an ideal jacket having 19.5" shoulders, 23" chest, and about a 30" BOC. Shirt is 17.5 x 35.

Interestingly my mom used to make me these things as a kid, which I never liked because they weren't as cool as some gaudy children's synthetic jacket, and it was hard to be active in one so I was always taking it off and then losing it (temporarily thank goodness or else there'd be hell to pay).

Now time to ask for some opinions! Thanks in advance.

Menswear novice here who is looking to build out a small wardrobe. I work in a professional setting where most people dress on the casual side, so I'm leaning towards the casual spectrum of menswear. A BROWN fall/winter sports coat seems like a good addition and have settled on a subtle brown herringbone pattern. As it seems like the F/W RTW releases are all but over, I'm looking towards the MTO route and have identified a few fabrics.

I think the Abraham Moon - Mid Brown Herringbone Tweed is the safest bet. Very subtle herringbone and a neutral brown. I do really like how the Abraham Moon - Tobacco/black looks but am worried that it will have a reddish tinge therefore not as versatile.

Lastly, the Marling & Evans - Dark Brown Herringbone is another consideration. It's got more texture and the herringbone pattern is louder. I like it (much like Harris Tweeds) but maybe too much of a countryside vibe to it.

What are some thoughts here? Photos below.

5'10"/205/46R/17-36

Do you have any fit pics?

this seems like a weird AOL chatroom convo...


I'm a XXL in the polos, and would imagine kints as well. I was instructed to take an XL in the chunky cardigan, so I'm a little surprised to hear you went with an L.

I must say, I'm rather surprised that several of the newly dropped SCs seems to not have sold as much as I thought. I don't know how many of each size S&M usually stocks, but several jackets seem to have all sizes available still. Maybe people are hoping for a site wide sale soon?

Maybe it's just this year's circumstances? Like for me, I no longer wear SCs around or to office anymore so I don't really care much about the new SCs.

Also, could be due to this time in the year. S&M usually have flash sales on items starting the first Monday of November I do believe

Might be the circumstances, but they're temporary. If there's a piece that fills a void in your wardrobe, I don't see why you shouldn't fill it unless you're expecting a new status quo regarding lifestyle because of Covid.

Also, wouldn't mind a flash sale.

Anyone else having issues with the cart? I keep adding shirts but they keep getting removed when I get to the secure checkout stage.

This. Or when it says "2 left in stock" then when I click on it it says OOS!

Just tried it with an Oxford, working on my end after I click checkout

I can get to the checkout but now it won't pull up any of my saved addresses or allow me to save a new one.

When I check my profile and attempt to update my addresses after logged in it says 'invalid user ID' although all my past orders show up under history.

Paypal isn't an option either since I need a billing address 'entered' and it won't allow me to save whatever I manually input.

Weird, probably a glitch right now. Probably will fix itself, but can always email CS to let them know. Seems like there are always new glitches on the site
