Am I the only who buys doubles/multiples of clothes?
I did this with the denim shirts and lightweight oxfords. The backups will be nice, in a year or two, my brain said. Then, I lost my job.

I wish I could buy more of the Cigar linen cloth for when my trousers give out.

The cut was a little off last season, but the texture, drape, and everything else is A-1. I’m wearing them in the post I made last Tuesday. They’re a great addition to my wardrobe.
Anyone know if the covert twill fits similar to the high rise cream flannel and/or tobacco fresco from the past?
Thanks.

Anyone have experience with the covert twill, what are they like?
its almost criminal how often I've worn the stone and charcoal covert twills. Flannels have nice texture, but the way the twills hold a crease and drape so well is unparalleled when it comes to stuff you can just throw on. I find I have to iron a crease back into my flannels every so often

Please, y'all. I'm begging ya... If someone brings up how great the coverts are again, my wallet is about to take a serious hit. Y'all have got to stop singing the covert's praises, else y'all will cause money to hemorrhage from my account. LOL

Buy once and cry once. I'd personally say trousers are way more bang for your buck than jackets.
On that note, does anyone know if the covert twills can be made up for MTO?

but what if they go on discount for a flash sale day :/
I feel like they'd work well in the east coast Canadian winters by what I am reading, seems to be very weather resistant

I could live with them if you could grab the jacket as a separate.
To me, there seems to be a lot of Neapolitan style jackets so far this FW20. It wouldn't surprise me if they came out with another VBC flannel colour normal cut sport coat, as if I remember correctly I think the normal cut sells more than the Neapolitan OTR. I feel like Rick still got a lot in store for us

I think jetted pockets are the cleanest for a suit...I mean, its a flannel suit in a chocolate brown so not the most formal but still...
I was requesting the jacket as a SC and not as part of a suit. Eventhough I haven't yet purchased a suit from S&M, I doubt the RTW suits will ever fit me since I'm a drop 8-10 normally bordering to 12 if I pick up training. RTW suits are drop 6.

Yeh. Jetted pockets are super clean. In fact, on all my suits, I just end up tucking the pocket flaps inwards to make for a clean front. Can't lie, the jetted pockets on the silhouette and curvature of the Neo suit looks really good.
