Yeah, i got it on steep discount earlier this year. My only dislike is the slight sheen of thr brushed wool finish but its no big deal. I'm starting to prefer the dry crunch of high twist wool, but this suit works just fine
The slight sheen could potentially be seen as a good thing when wearing it like you are in the pics, but I see what you mean. The other reason I never pulled the trigger is that I'm not sure if the fabric has enough texture for the patch pockets to make sense. A charcoal jacket would need a fair bit of texture to work as a separate. Otherwise it would be better off with jetted or flapped pockets imo.

Definitely not enough texture to function as a separate. I prefer patch pockets on casual suits like this one (pretty much all suits) because it brings the formality down a notch, which is always my preference for dressing smart. Nice but not so nice that i look out of place by a large measure.

Staff must be pumping orders out today. I just got three shipping confirmations for orders placed throughout last week including one from last Friday.

Good ol' Rick must be cracking the whip :slayer:

Custom shirt question
What is the difference between collar C2 and C6? Both described as Classic Spread?

Does anyone have real world pictures of the Marling and Evans Brown and Blue Glencheck from the MTO section? Fabric code LINFIT/16826/C3-MTO-J .

Considered it myself for the longest time. Eventually decided that it looked to similar to two other jackets I have. It looks awesome and the fabric composition is great.

It looks great in general. I think you'd be better off letting it out if there's enough material. If you go up a size, it might not fit as well in other areas.
Agreed. I think letting out the waist by 0.5 to 1 inch would make a difference.

@blewnote1 I'm not the most experienced member, but from the front I think it looks good. I'm also a fan of unpadded shoulders. I think length looks okay (seems to reach where you fingers curl). But from the side-view the vents are flaring out.
Thanks, I rechecked the side vents and they don't appear to be flaring so I think I'm good with that size. Appreciate the feedback!

Hmmm... my main concern is that the side vents are flaring. Lengthwise... I think it looks good. Most of the time wide angle lenses tend to make things look lengthier, if that makes sense. Shoulders and chest look great. In any case, if you're in a place in which you can exchange items easily, I would try the 46S, just to see how it fits. May need some tailoring at the waist but I'm guessing that might help with the vents.
I double checked the side vents and they don't appear to be flaring (perhaps it was the pants I was wearing? *shrugs*). Thanks for the input with regards to the rest, I guess I can just try ordering a short and seeing if it fits better lengthwise and even if I have to return it I'll know one way or the other. It's good to know the rest of it looks ok though, thanks for input!

Ah, nice. If the vents are completely closed, then I wouldn't try the 46. Stick with the 44 and try the Short, as you said. :D
