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

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

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'm a 38R in suits. I took a medium. Same size as the first generation sweatshirtsI apologize if this has been covered before, but is there a consensus on how the sweatshirts fit?

I’m on the fence about this one. Each day I go back and forth as to whether or not I’ll cop. Trying to gauge texture because the shade is pretty close to my skin tone and wondering if it will wash me out. But that pattern is sweet, though! If I rock a blueish shirt, like denim, it should provide enough contrast to pull it off. (My internal dialogue about this sportcoat.)
Is the photo you selected one you like, or an example of a bonobos style editorial product photo?
Yea, sorry the photo I posted is what I prefer.Is the photo you selected one you like, or an example of a bonobos style editorial product photo?
What is an example of the 'bonobos style'?
I like the product phot0 you posted. Shows off the jacket well. Generally like the photos without models, and generally dislike the ones with models.
(Pet Peeve) Truth!Yea, sorry the photo I posted is what I prefer.
the ones with models are the ones I don’t care for.
This is probably an unpopular opinion, but I also don’t care for the color backdrop product photos they went to a year or two ago. Makes the products look cheap. I’m buying the moody, sophisticated photo not the “bonobos” photo. Also not a fan of their styling. This one is find, but most do a disservice the product it’s trying to highlight.
Just pet peeves of mine, nothing seriously wrong of course.

I don't think I have ever used this, I mostly filter the page stock by size on the top left side, opposite of "My Size"Hello, I don't know if this is just me but I wish the "My Size" saved setting would filter to show the items that are available in the sizing you selected, rather than just filtering for sizes in which the item was produced in but are currently unavailable.
It's a bit silly (imo) to have set up the personal size filter list and then go through dozens of garments of suggest garments only to find they're out of stock.
