Those wholecuts are tempting at the sale price. But, I'll pass as who knows when I'll be back in the office.

I stay with the same sportcoat size and it has enough room for a sportcoat underneath. I was considering sizing up but someone mentioned they fixed the sizing issue with these last season.
Can I ask why you went with the DB overcoat over the Polo coat?

I couldn’t decide myself so I ordered both in Navy to see which I like more. Just waiting to receive them.

I had the polo coat in navy 2 seasons ago. Loved it and wore it a lot. However, the cloth is heavy and might be itchy on some days. The DB overcoat solves all that, it's buttery smooth. Even though, I wish they made the polo coat in that wool/cashmere blend cloth.

Come August, this will be possible through MTO. I'm planning on placing such an order and adding an extra 5-10" in length to create a full/classic length coat.

I've experimented lots with different lengths lately, and I find upper calf length(just below the knee) to be the best compromise between the drama of a long overcoat, and actually being practical. It doesn't get dirty, it's not in the way, and it still keeps my legs warm too.

I went with mid-calf length before, and sitting down anywhere without the coat grazing the ground was impossible, and it'd skirt my car's side skirts when getting in the car too.

I already see myself doing the camel cloth on the polo coat cut
Would be a no brainer for me as well if I didn't own the camel db already.

Thanks for the input, appreciate it. These are excellent factors to actually consider before deciding on length.

For my part, I have a DB raincoat where I find the length to be perfect for me. I'll try to emulate it when the time comes.

Yeah, my covid-optimistic view is get the wholecuts, my covid-realistic view is get the loafers. My wallet says: neither. Who will win? :p
Pretty sure your wallet will lose the battle, or you wouldn't be here posting 😂

I'd love to see pictures of that one too if possible.

I know S&M promised one years ago but it never materialized.

It's not S&M though. It's from Burberry.

I gotcha.

I can't remember if you have any hangups on posting non-S&M in the S&M thread, but I always find it's helpful for gauging future interest and details on a wanted product that may not exist yet.

Its getting warm outside and I cant decide which fox bros i should I pick up. For those who are picking it up soon I look forward to pics. I dont have a summer brown suit but I'm leaning toward the moss because I just love green.
