Can anyone who has the Navy Twill DB sport coat comment on its length? I got it in my usual size, but when measured, it's about 1.5 inches shorter than the same size SB jackets I have. Other areas fit pretty much as expected. So not sure whether I got one that was over the tolerance or it was just supposed to be cut that short.

Really regret waiting so long on the DB off-white linen.

Whenever it comes down to the question of SB or DB and you struggle making a decision, always go with the DB unless it's:
- for a wedding
- black tie event
- you live in a humid/hot climate
Thanks for the response. Could you please elaborate on that train of thought and why/how you come to that conclusion? Thanks.

Suit looks much better on you now. Is this the one you got flamed by other users for? Post-tailored right?
Yup this is the one it’s still got a little creasing above the top closing button and out to the side but that’s slowing being taken care of with bjj

I think it fits much better now, fwiw.

Hope everything is well with the mother-to-be and the baby.

What do you all think of care on the Cream colored suits? Do they display wear more than darker colors, or does it usually not affect the material unless you're careless with how you're wearing it?

Quest cotton holds its shape well and looks very polished. Cotton/linen trousers are comfier but thats about it, just a more causal trouser cause it’ll wrinkle more
Is there a substantial difference in how they wear in hot weather?

Having never owned or even handled anything in Quest Cotton, how viable is it for shoulder season or year-round wear?

Any opinions on linen/cotton blend trousers vs quest cotton?

Get both is the obvious answer. I have both.
but I find that the Sondrios hold a crease better and wrinkle less than the Quest cottons and the 100% linens. Not sure why but I assume that Sondrio adds a finish to theirs that helps them retain form better.

Personally I prefer quest cotton because the cotton linen I own are tighter and I have them in cream which shows the pockets a bit much for my comfort zone. I’d prolly wear the quest cottons to the office personally since to me they feel like a fancy chino.

for hot weather I think they’re both fine. Obviously the linen ones will breath better but being tighter I think theure About the same

It’s very light weight. Depending on your location, it may be too light for shoulder season. I will be putting mine away, along with the linens and the Sondrio’s, in September.
