For me personally, if I liked the item enough to purchase just 7 days ago, I don't think it is that big of a deal to wait a few extra days. As you can imagine, their team is likely dealing with an increase in online orders given the their physical stores have also been closed with the lockdown. I am obviously still eager to receive my order but the whole instant gratification is a little crazy these days.
I agree, I don't mind the wait at all.

6 days for hemming, not bad. I have received 3 hemmed trousers. Took a week. All 3, 2 of which had cuffs, turned out great. At $8,its a No Brainer
Yeah for sure, if it's 6 days for hemming, it's actually less time than it would take me to take the time to go to the tailor, drop them off, wait, and pick them up, so at $8 it's a bargain on both money and time.

No doubt that the wait is longer due to less staff (lower costs, cheaper product etc.), I guess I'm so used to being spoiled by overnight logistics that the total 2 week wait seems long in comparison, especially when all there is to do these days is refresh the tracking :bounce2:

Opinions on this piece? Initially, I thought 'to much texture/mottling' which would render it too casual for me, but the more I'm looking at it, the more I'm liking the colour/shade. I can see it working perfectly with light and mid grey trousers and bordeaux/oxblood coloured shoes.

I think it looks great. Definitely a more casual piece, but not so casual that it loses the incredible versatility of a textured navy/blue jacket. I much prefer this color shade over some of the bright navy hopsacks they've done in the past, for instance. I'd almost certainly buy it if I didn't already own the E.Thomas wool/silk/linen/cashmere hopsack. As far as the texture goes, I'd say it has a very similar level of formality to most wool-slik-linen blends.

Thanks for your insight, appreciate it. I love navy jackets, have several. As for the E. Thomas jacket, I have it as well. But this one seems to be more indigo/ink blue. I think it's more memorable/striking than your everyday navy jacket. Decisions, decisions...

Who doesn't love navy jackets? I have several as well. I agree that this one has a distinctly different shade of navy, but I feel like the texture and color shade of the E.Thomas is different enough from a typical navy hopsack that it serves almost exactly the same purpose that this Cerruti would. At least for my wardrobe.

This might sound a dumb question, but just wanted to be sure before pulling the trigger:-
Considering the same jacket, same size and fit, say a “slim 36”. A 36S will come with a shorter length I can tell.
Will the waist button in the front be adjusted as well? For example a 36R the waist button will sit on my belly button, will 36S come upper than my belly button?
I am imagining if buttons are staying in same level, wouldn’t it look strange in terms of proportion, given the overall jacket is coming shorter?

Thanks in advance.

I wonder how soft to the touch and how it would drape compared to the EThomas?

The 36S will have a proportionally higher buttoning stance to match the shorter length.

No idea, but I would be surprised if it's as soft as the E.Thomas. That is such a comfortable jacket. I could see the Cerruti draping slightly better and/or wrinkling a bit less, given it's 90% wool and 10% silk. At least over the course of a full days wear.
