That's funny. I'm very interested in a safari/field jacket exactly like the one they prototyped, and it would be a complete dealbreaker if it had any kind of elastic/knit finishing anywhere. What do you find appealing about that sort of thing?

If I remember correctly, they were targeting 599 USD. I believe it was intended for this FW season though, and never worked out. Hopefully they'll still go ahead with it at some point.
For me personally, it looks less formal which is the reason I'd be interested in the first place. I would wear it exclusively with denim trousers. If my intention was to wear it with wool trousers though, I'd opt for the field/safari looking like jacket which is a bit longer.

Unless it's cut like a sportcoat, I'm having a hard time picturing any kind of leather jacket that's too formal for denim trousers. But I guess you're less concerned about versatility and just want a jacket for that very spesific casual denim look? You would prefer a bomber jacket with elastic ribbing over a flight jacket with a shirt collar, buttoned front and no elastic as well? I'm probably in the minority here, but the popularity of bomber jackets in menswear is one of the things I'll never understand. They're less comfortable and just ruin your silhouette, imo.

Yes, at this point in time and given the rest of my wardrobe, versatility is a non issue. I'm looking for a specific look. I don't wear denim trousers often at all. But when I do, I'm looking for a specific look.

I wouldn't mind having both kind of jackets in the closet in the future, but at this point, I want the elastic band feature because of the casual look.

As for the silhouette, I agree. But on the other hand, if you're well built a bomber jacket is able to enhance a buffed upper body. Especially if you have a large drop due to the elastic band making the waist look even slimmer.

That's fair. I would be super disappointed if it ended up being a bomber jacket when S&M finally releases a dark brown suede jacket, though.

Hello, gentlemen. We are trying to see if there would be any interest in a group buy for Dugdale Cavalry Twill trousers. We are looking at potentially offering 2-3 different colours in our high-rise trouser style, at a price of about $250 USD. If there is enough interest in these, orders would open up sometime in July/August, with delivery taking place between September-October. Please let us know if you would be interested in this potential project.
Don’t mean to piss on the parade, but $250 for RTW trousers is too rich for my blood.
Looking forward to seeing them though!

So this is my second shirt from the November Custom Sale.
Contacted CS about starting my custom shirt with some changes at the start of February. Decreased the length by an inch and added some fabric to the waist. Great untucked fit, hits about mid fly. Asked for fabric to be washed and dried prior to cutting, so I’ll see how that goes after first wash.
Fabric originally ordered was OOS when it came time to get second shirt made so chose this light blue chambray. Great choice. Forgot to ask for cuffs to be unfused 😅

Remember that these trouser will last forever. And when you divide the 250 usd on the eternity it will last the price per year approaches zero. Will you miss out on a pair of free dugdale trousers?

Found the math professor... though you make a good point, Dugdale twill is expensive, Luxire MSRP is $500+ for some colours. I wouldn’t commit (would prefer GMTO rather than group buy) but would definitely be interested at $250.

Any tips for sweatshirt sizing? I've seen contradictory info.

I'm a 38" chest, wear 38 contemporary.

A small?

How is the fabric? I also read the fabric is weirdly shiny and smooth which sounds ehhh.

I am a 35.5" Chest and wear 36R Slim and took an XS, same as my Polo size. This fits me nice and slim without being skin tight. I would say go S for trim look, M for a bit more relaxed feel.
I did say it was shiny and smooth looking, but it is more me nit picking. When on it feels and wears great, most normal people in the street probably won't notice.

I wear a 38slim regular. I'm 5'10 and 158lbs. I went with a medium. Sure small could also fit me but it would before fitted.

Basically, regular fit go with medium. Size small will be slim fit. Just whatever you prefer.

Ok, sounds like I'm leaning towards a medium.

I’d be interested. More interested in some colors than others.
