I was never intrigued by this Marling & Evans fabric currently offered by Spier & Mackay through MTO. But having seen this outfit, I'm actually starting to consider it for a future jacket. Such an elegant autumnal outfit.

I agree this looks great. Brown sport coats are great during FW for dressing up or down

Agreed. Just thought that it was to bright of a brown shade. Almost wheat like. As such, I had a difficult time envisioning how to utilise it. But I'm reconsidering now. It'll be a strong contender during the next MTO sale.

Yeah I don’t think it’s too light, more of a nice mid brown. Which is extremely useful because you can wear it with either dark (charcoal, navy) or light (stone, cream) trousers. Not all jackets have that flexibility.

Indeed, that kind of flexibility is great to have. Personally, I don't mind the northern lights look. I love wearing charcoal or dark gray trousers. My initial hesitation was because I thought it had a wheat shade and thus, in addition to being bright would be too yellow-ish as well. But the above setup makes it look cooler in colour while still being earthy, which I prefer. It's added to the wish list.

I also love wearing dark trousers, just seems to make the legs look sleek. And I like dark colors generally. But with dark colors, I prefer a “mid”-colored jacket like this. Not something too light. Otherwise the contrast with the dark trousers is too stark. That’s why “mid”-colored jackets like this are so useful.

I agree. I don't actually own any bright jackets. This year's Abraham Moon brown houndstooth and Marling & Evans undyed check are actually the brightest I have. The M&E brown windowpane above will be a great addition.

Anyone have any 42R slim they don't really wear and could stand to part with? Looking for some the hot items from past seasons before I discovered S&M

Could search through the unofficial S&M BST thread, may get some traction there!

I think with this lower gorge height from the past couple years, the Neo lapels simply look too big. It worked with the older Neo cuts with the higher gorge, but now it just completely engulfs the entire chest.

To my eye, the lower the gorge, the narrower the lapel should be. The standard cut nails this now IMO.
