To those who have tried the linen field jackets -
From looking at the size charts, if I wanted to wear the field jackets as a casual sport coat substitute (so with only a shirt beneath), I should size down to achieve a more sport coat-like fit? Eg. if I am a 38 in the SC, I should get the field jacket in a 36?
No. The field jacket has a drawstring/cinchable waist. Stick with your normal size and cinch the waist in a little if needed. As a casual jacket, a slight bit looser is always better.

Just curious about the shorts; is anyone really particular to the point that it makes a difference whether there are 2 fits to choose from?
Yes. Seat/thigh are different.

Have you ever considered suit fabrics in charcoal/brown and dove grey @spiermackay? If not RTW/OTR, maybe through MTO? I'd definitely be in for both.

Dove grey (@Alan Bee)


Charcoal/brown
We have a light gray suit available now. The dove gray looks a lot flatter in colour. Not sure there would be a lot of traction for that. The Char/Brown is nice. That's minnis fresco, looks to be part of their collection.

I'm inching towards my first MTO sport coat purchase but I confirmed with CS that the only lining colors are black, navy, and burgundy. I'd like my first purchase to be a seersucker jacket but I'm wary about a dark-colored lining showing through (navy is the only reasonably close color option for a blue or navy seersucker IMO). It seems odd that white is not a lining color option but what do I know? I could pay the $20 upcharge for an unlined jacket.

For folks who've purchased quarter-lined summer/light-colored sport coats, what is the color of the lining?
Ask for white in the notes. We don't stock it, but the factory can get it.

When are the thongs arriving? I need something that won't show through my linen shorts. 🤣🤣🤣:oops:
I'll do you one better. How does GOTS certified, handmade in Northern Italy by retired monks, banana hammock sound? Every stitch by hand. Only the best for the boys!

We can get all these. Scabal we don't work with so much. Way too expensive.

+1. Would LOVE to see the lightest grey Fresco made up as a suiting option. Mid-grey is great, butttttt I also have 2 of them already lol
We just ran the 20% Minnis Fresco MTO promo! You could have easily had one made up for close to an OTR price.

Camionisti in camoscio in arrivo?
Google translate says you're asking about the suede truckers?

Not sure yet. They are quite expensive and the factory is asking for a larger minimum order than we're comfortable with. Still negotiating.

Grazie mille...

Blake Hedley just had a whiskey color in Italian suede at a decent price.
Of course I couldn't get it into my cart before my size sold out.
Hoping you guys do something there.

Hey everbody, quick question. Currently taking a look at getting a linen field/safari since I love my charcoal herringbone wool one I bought previously. Previously I was looking for a very light khaki/oatmeal safari (much like what yeossal used to offer). Would you guys consider the natural linen field jacket on offer currently to be of the same formality/versatility as a light khaki? Followup: Thoughts on the cream linen vs natural linen on offer right now? Thanks!

Checked. These are actually oldies from 2019 that we dug up. The chart is correct. They are sized to the regular shirt chart. So 1" less than this years. Thought the waist is a slight bit bigger, but the chest is to spec.
How do we know which popovers have which sizing? I've got 2 already that are from (I believe) the first season you did popovers, olive linen and I think blue Bengal stripe. I'm leaning towards the navy linen and blue chambray so would love to confirm sizing if the charts aren't accurate.
