Thought he wasn’t running the IG account.
As far as I know he is the one running the Instagram account. With his busy schedule, it is easier for him to pop on his phone here and there to post or reply than sit down for a while on something else is my guess

Parka arrived this past week. If you are interested in a nice trim fit, the medium works well for me but feels a bit like being in a sausage casing when zipped up (keeping in mind I like a relaxed fit). The double zipper helps so you can open up the bottom for some extra room. I mentioned the snug fit in the body to my wife and she decided to try it on, it never came off her lol. :rotflmao: so I now have a large on order for me to try out.

@Burzan, have you received the Large yet? If so, can you comment on sizing?

Couple of quick pics of these 2 shirts I just received.

Can anyone who has these attest to whether there is any shrinkage to be expected with cold wash and hang dry? I've been too lazy to deal with cleaner during C19. @spiermackay @SpierTeam
Just a heads up that you're going to want to dry clean these items if you're worried about shrinkage. I knew this and always dry clean my Spier clothes but have been lazy to deal with the cleaners much during C19 so I cold washed and hung dried both. The white knit is borderline wearable (maybe) but the casual popover is going in my donation bag.

This is why I note if it fits me perfectly OTR or not. If it fits me to a T, it ain’t going to fit me after a cold wash/hang dry. Why I always like to have some room and length in my S&M shirts brand new because I know they will shrink about 0.5” after even cold wash and a hang dry

I’m actually hoping for some shrinkage. The collar, chest, length and sleeves are a little big on me. It is very disappointing that we have to size up and hope for shrinkage to work out. S&M have to do a better job with quality control. I inquired on IG about sizing and was told that the the collars on the knits will shrink about half an inch. That’s a lot. That kind of information should be on the product page for everyone to see.

That's a shame. Pre-wash, how did you find the fit of this year's LS polo vs the fit of the prior year's iteration?

Is it okay if the shoulders of a coat are 0.9 inches more than the shoulders of a sportcoat? For the fabric as thick as navy polo.
What do you think is optimal value of this number?
Yes, I think an inch wider is about right for comfortable layering over a jacket.
