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'm a 38R in suits. I took a medium. Same size as the first generation sweatshirts
The difference is the 1st generation the size medium fits slimmer but sleeves are too short
Current generation size medium fit more traditional, looser, whatever word they're using these days. The wife said she put it in the dryer for no longer than 5 mins and it did shrink a bit.

Basically take your regular size, just know it's not as fitted in the same size as the first Gen. And frankly, I don't mind my sweatshirts fitting a tad looser.

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

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?
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.

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.

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 might currently be unavailable.

It's a bit silly (imo) to have set up the personal size filter list and then go through dozens of suggested garments only to find they're out of stock.

Cheers.

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"

Ah, I see. Thank you.

Regardless, seems like a bit of a wasted feature although I believe it's rather new.

I see a couple more sport coats have just been added. I really like the herringbone medium brown but just not sure about the 100% linen. I wish it was something like 75% linen and 25% silk. Has there ever been a solid brown in other 100% linen or 55% linen & 45% wool?

There was the Chocolate Hopsack by Drago that was released this SS season. Other than that, unsure about other sport coats in solid brown

Yeah I think that's the one I got the 55/45 mix information from. I am just concerned about the wrinkles and the feel of the 100% linen versus a blend. Maybe I am just expecting too much after seeing the up coming navy in wool/silk and sage in linen/silk/cotton.

100% linen does wrinkle, but you get used to embracing the wrinkles. I'm okay with having characteristic wrinkles and while being cool during humid days
