That is what I am thinking, but the Cerruti is just so beautiful I'm having a hard time passing it up. I did see the Mockolino. Looks nice, but I keep seeing people say that a navy hopsack is a must have. Plus the hopsack is almost half the price with the new sale.
Yup, I know the feeling. It looks very similar to the E. Thomas released a season ago, which I grabbed. But I still bought the Cerruti because it looks stunning.

The Lanificio comes across to me as a jacket to get after you've already got several blazers/sportcoats in your wardrobe- the Guabello would be much more versatile imho.
I completely agree. If you don't have any solid navy blazers, go with the Guabello if you want to fill that hole in your wardrobe. The Cerruti looks beautiful but it will still leave you with a gap in your wardrobe.

If you're looking for one navy SC I'd say go with the Guabello, which is a true navy. While the Cerruti is truly beautiful, it's brighter and has some texture. It's a great addition to an already existing navy SC wardrobe imo. I ordered the latter myself yesterday. But I already own a handful other SS navy SCs, the Guabello being one of them.

I don't own the Mockolino myself, but I'm hearing great things about it as well as a replacement to hopsack fabrics.
Do you have the navy ethomas hopsack from last summer? Would be interested in how close or not it is to the Ceruti could you post a picture of the two?

Sure, when I receive the latter I will. But it might take some time. I'm shipping it to the US first and to Europe thereafter.

That 4x2 triple patch pocket navy hopsack is looking interesting - has anybody here picked this one up yet?
I'm thinking a brass button swap on this would go well with my wardrobe.

Yes, I have it, has been a great, versatile jacket I’ve reached for often. Lightweight, but still has presence.

Does high rise = pleated? Are there any high rise flat front pants in the new arrivals? Thanks

@spiermackay is the "Sand Herringbone" a neapolitan jacket? It says so in the copy on the product page, and the photo appears to be, but it's omitted from the "Neapolitan Cut Sportcoats" filter. Thanks!
I've ordered it under the impression it is- there's definitely three buttons, and S&M doesn't do 3 button jackets outside of Neo.

Question for anyone that's ordered a S&M Sport Coat. Do you usually go with a Short if you wear a suit jacket in short length, or are you better off with a regular? Looking at picking up something but it's only offered in Regular sizing, even though I usually wear a short length, so didn't want to grab it but not be able to return it if it was too long in the sleeve.

Have you checked out the size and fit guide? (https://www.spierandmackay.com/fit-guide/Sportcoats -Size Chart) It shows measurements for all lengths.

There are a few flat front high rise trousers. Look at the "finer details" on the bottom. Here is an example, these are the rust guabello:

The others say "single reverse pleat" generally instead of "flat front."

The suit jackets and sportcoats fit the same, the only difference is that the Neo runs slightly longer than the regular cut. If you wear a short in suits, you'll wear a short in the sportcoats.

Actually that is false. The Guabello Denim Blue SC from FW20 was a 3R2 with regular cut, surprisingly
