That burgundy is fire. I'm secretly wishing it goes out of stock in my size lol
typically with velvet I prefer shawl collars, but I had a burgundy velvet peak lapel (self-faced) several years back that I loved (and fit horribly, looking back at pics). They killed it with these two jackets, the navy specifically looks exactly like the Tom Ford version

admittedly, like I mentioned, I actually already have 3 other velvet jackets (navy, burgundy, and kind of a slightly darker blue sapphire color). I’m justifying this purchase by saying these two are higher quality than the others, and the others don’t have satin lapels, so TECHNICALLY it’s different (lol).

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.View attachment 1504515

I believe that both these are versatile, especially the former, being based around brown.

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
That is often what happens with me. I kind of get greedy with the sales, so often end up waiting and they go OOS. I had a White Linen Shirt and a White Linen/Cotton Shirt in the clearance I wanted when it first came out, along with the XS Light Gray Sweatshirt, all with one in stock over the past few months. End up going OOS, and I regret not buying it and sucking up the $8 shipping when I KNOW I would’ve gotten much use out of them. Note from self, if it goes down to 1-2 Left In Stock, purchase before you regret lol

that’s where I’m glad they have the item counts available when it drops below 3 in stock- when I see that pop up it starts the clock for me, if it doesn’t pop up then I know I can prioritize other stuff first

I only have two sportscoat for f/w. The brown glen plaid fox flannel and a oatmeal donegal from harris tweed. Any recommendation for a third sportscoat (Even though I don't wear one often haha)?
I'm liking the abraham moon - Brown & Red Shetland Gun Check Tweed or the houndstooth (RTW). But maybe I should get a plain textured sportscoat that would be more versatile instead?

I actually picked up the brown/cream houndstooth RTW and a MTO of the abraham moon - Brown & Red Shetland Gun Check Tweed, I wonder which is more versatile.

Navy or green should be next. Definitely navy if you're looking for versatility.

This. If its Must Have, you buy when it drops and pay full msrp, which is always reasonable. Waiting for sales is a gamble, sometimes you win sometimes you lose.

The other thing is, this year in particular, you just can't be carrying too much unsold inventory. Rick and the crew, like most small businesses, are in survival mode right now. For that reason, for guys who can do so, add a full price item or two to your sale carts this season. Help move the full margin inventory as well as the sale stuff.

Another perk of buying when it's new/just dropped is you actually get to wear it for the full season. I've definitely purchased things new from S&M that later go on sale in my size but whatever frustration over that $100 or so is outweighed by the joy in already having and getting to wear the item.

Yes I agree, stuff I know I will actually wear on a daily basis in season I buy full price typically. Stuff that won’t get so much wear, like sport coats, odd trousers, over coat etc. I usually wait until they go on sale or a sale on sale in the off season.

Sometimes I really don't know where all the complaints on shipping and processing times come from. I just got shipping confirmation for my order placed last evening. Excited!
