He does have a hunched back it seems, causing the pleat across the back to open up. Also, several people have had issues with flaring pleats on the overcoats, suggesting there's a general fit issue with the blueprint of the cut.

Personally, I think they both look to big at the front. He looks bloated/swollen. I don't know what his body actually looks like, but the overcoat seems to put several kgs on him around the waist and chest. The overcoat looks convex rather than concave or even straight. Simply unflattering, tbh. Just imo though.
Yea looks ok from the back but sausage front. Could be camera angle facing upwards though.

Yeap, could be also the angle, but frankly speaking, I would not feel comfy wearing 42, as it was at certain moments too snug over the chest.

I'm sure it would be better with a pic taken at the same height as your chest. This was completely based on the pictures provided. But hey, all that matters is that you're comfortable with your purchase. Wear in good health, sir!

Poor business model with the shoes. When many sizes sell out the first day of Black Friday, they have lost customers for life. Everyone else had Black Friday sales, and they have enough stock to last a day. Or they will take your order and deliver when in stock.
This is not a special sale like the 199 suit sale

This isn't a typical model year either this 2020...

I don't think you understand how a small business like this operates. They cannot carry massive inventory and so they don't have permanent stocks; things come and go, some will return, others won't.

You snooze you lose. Should have ponied up the big bucks and paid full price if you wanted them so bad.

Anyone know any more details about the ties? 7-fold construction, etc?

I think they’re fine missing a customer who thinks it is such a big deal that a company runs out of sizes during a sale...I’d also doubt if it’s a poor business model as I’m sure they’d prefer to sell at full price and in a year like this simply sell enough.

the entitlement here around sales sometimes...if you really want something don’t wait for sales and support businesses with fair prices.

So Im looking to incorporate some orange into my SC wardrobe. Is anyone able to comment on how this looks as SC? I really want something with orange that is versatile as possible.

the first time I read this I was like “man, that’s kind of harsh”...but you’re absolutely right. If I see something I’ve wanted for a long time and HAVE to have (navy Neo sportcoat, gray flannel Neo suit, Neo seersucker suit), I don’t even consider waiting for a sale.Too often I’ve either been too late or gotten the OOS email.

and let’s be honest, the prices of pretty much everything are a bargain at full MSRP when compared to other places

Couldn’t justify full price (since I already have multiple from other makers), so I was waiting for the sale, and sure enough, they were included. Navy and burgundy velvet dinner jackets both incoming.

the way I look at it, pre-COVID, I had several opportunities around Christmas each year to attend black tie or black tie optional parties. I LOVE wearing velvet jackets to those (with everything else black tie appropriate), so when things eventually get back to normal, I’ll be able to get plenty of use out of this stuff.

That burgundy is fire. I'm secretly wishing it goes out of stock in my size lol
