This is my first contemporary jacket, but I’m thinking it’s just the way I was standing. It looks much better on when I’m not trying to take a pictures.
How do you like the contemporary as opposed to the slim?

See they are bringing back the full canvas John cavendish suit. That’s a great suit. Unfortunately I haven’t even worn it yet.
How does it feel compared to other all season fabric SM suits? Stiffer?

Much more comfortable and still doesn’t look like it’s about to swallow me. I’ll be making a switch to contemporary for all my future purchases.
Care to share your height/weight as data points?

I'd like to see it buttoned.

Haha I did chill down. Im annoyed though with everyone giving advice without giving context makes no sense. We also tend t forget people on style forum do dress more conservatively (quite an euphemism), and while I love the resulting fit on some people (fuller cuts, high rise) I know sometimes it just would not work for me (and gf would nicely make fun of me in my old man clothes. :p ).
Donegal fabric though remains gorgeous!
Don't let your girlfriend bully you into wearing leggings.

Late post, but today was my first day at a new job today after getting laid off earlier in the year. It was also right at freezing when I left (which is weird and sucks), so dressing warm. Spier hopsack Neo, flannels, and polo coat:

Women know better what looks good on us than online strangers. Impressing them is much more important in biz and private life than your boss who doesn't really care much about how you dress but your performance. Though your performance is also important for women.

Being strong enough to wear what you want and not bow to others will impress everyone (although the person who is strong enough doen't really care).
