Definitely looking forwards to seeing real world pics of the s/s lineup. It might push me to nab the plum or chocolate hopsack.

The back of the jacket almost covers the seat. Its about 1" away from reaching the end of the butt cheeks. The length is at 28.5" which is exactly the same as S&M 40S. The sleeves are at 24.2", also the same as S&M 40S.

The ratio of body and leg length ratio definitely plays a part. That is what makes sizing so difficult altogether.
Based on your description, sounds like you need a R in jacket length. Sleeves can easily be shortened or lengthened, the jacket body, not so much.

Anybody know, are cotton garments such as corduroy at risk of being eaten by moths, like wool garments?

What are the chances they restock sizes of the Jumper Boot anytime soon? It just came to my attention but they're currently out of stock in most sizes

Not 100% cotton. Moths don't eat cotton as far as I know.
Thanks I’ve never experienced moth damage with my cords. Was just wondering if that is dumb luck. Will be storing my cords in the next 3-4 weeks.

Moths will absolutely eat cotton (and other natural fibers). They should be stored and treated the same way as wool. (cleaned if possible, then stored either hanging in a bag, or folded in a moth proof container)

They will eat cotton, though rare. They usually only try to eat animal based fibers. So if there is wool and cotton, they will probably go after the wool-based items first

This is correct - IME they have an order of things they like to eat (Silk > Cashmere > Wool > Cotton > Linen). They prefer animal fibers but will eat plant fibers if they get hungry enough.

If you're really worried get the moth traps that release pheromones they are attracted too. Just make sure you get the one's for clothes moths (not meal moths, they eat pantry stuff).

You can also throw any clothes you're worried about being contaminated in the freezer. Kills the eggs/larva in a few days.

I may be in the minority here, but my vote would be for the olive green suit over the brown suit. Its a unique color, but it’s also very muted, and has brown tones in it. I may grab the green foxair myself. Debating between that and the gray minnis.
Grab the gray minnis.

So I can get the moss green hehe.

I use lavender moth balls, plus I live fairly close to the ocean, sea gulls feast on them! This is great info... :fonz:
