I'm kind of shocked that there has been no discussion of the navy seersucker that they teased on Instagram yesterday.

Glad to see they continue dabbling in seersucker. I have the navy from a couple of seasons ago and it is one of my favorite items. I’d really like to know if this is an exact match of that so I can get another pair of trousers. Mistakenly did not cuff them.
Id really like to see some seersucker shirt options.

Just received the S&M Overcoat - Zanieri Green Herringbone. I wear 40 Slim in Sport coat and this is a size 42S. I don’t think I would be able to size down on this.
Would appreciate any feedback on the fit and wearing it with a chunky sweater.

Good fit through the shoulders, the back vent opened so wide would lead me to think it might be too tight through the body (not sure if there is allowance to let out), but not exceptionally tight (no pulling on the front buttons). Length is good, sleeves need to be shortened, but it looks good through the arms.

While I really enjoy my seersucker suit from S&M, I would really like a wool/silk blend option in the future. The stiffness of cotton isn’t my preference. I do wish I had a navy seersucker suit, though.

Thanks, the fit through the body is not very tight with the chunky sweater but then again, I won’t be able to layer more. Just figuring out if I can take out 1-2 inch in the body and if it’s a keeper.

Can S&M source other fabrics for MTO garments? I was looking at some Dugdale linens, but I'm not sure if that's something they could get

I apologize if this has been covered before, but is there a consensus on how the sweatshirts fit? For reference, in S&M I wear a 42 Slim in Sportcoats, 16.5-35 Slim in dress shirt and Size L in Sweaters. I imagine I would be a Size L in the sweatshirts as well but would be curious what others' experience has been?

@tripreed Well @XxLogo has been slacking these days. I guess his work has gotten busier now :)
Have just received a new job offer and having to move and get a vehicle. So has been a bit busy and stressful the past week so far.

I wear a S in the thin layering sweaters and wear an XS in the sweatshirts. Both I would consider to be on the slim side of styleforum preferences. If looking for a traditional fit I would say go with same as sweater size

I have a wool seersucker (navy on navy) suit from another manufacturer, and I find it incredibly versatile, FWIW.

I wear 42R contemporary, 16.5 slim shirts. I took the L in the sweatshirt and am happy with the fit.

I just received one of the new sweatshirts in navy. I'd say through the body fit is quite similar. Sleeves are a better length. I know the "sheen" you're taking about. While I was initially surprised by it, after a cold wash and flat dry I tumbled it with no heat on the drier and it soften right up. It does feel more premium than the last ones, but not quite as dry as classic cotton. I'm a fan. Lounging around in it today with the five pocket cords.

Really like the new art direction of the merchandise. The "bonobos" style editorial product photos are off-putting to me.

I am just seeing this now, looks very nice. Maybe give a more accurate representation of colour. This reminds me of the Drago Blue Check SC I bought (I believe is still up) that has in warehouse photos with natural light. Reason I bought it tbh

I just don't have the room currently :) Please get it before someone purchases those on Ebay. Will take them off there immediately.
