Are you considering the upcoming outlet (if one happens for Canada this summer — who knows any more; even they don’t know until it happens as past events suggest)? This may be our last chance to get stuff we slept on the last few seasons that still fit the way we are used to. Sometimes they dig out stuff from ages ago and then there’s also relatively fresh stuff from literally the previous season. Looking back, I should have gotten those half-off Jorts in staple colors...
Yep, always keep an eye on the outlet. Not many staples in my sizing last few times round tho - all big checks and stripes etc

On a somewhat related note — I just did a bit of travelling and really watched people in various cities. Whoever suggested the looser fits are in the last couple of seasons — well, the general public has certainly not caught on! In fact, it seems like everyone is wearing tight, tight, tight stuff — even puffer jackets. At least one size too small. Are most jeans now made of 30% spandex?? Very tight fits on everyone with lots of ankle showing. This is both Europe and Stateside
Yeah this is the trend in Europe since couple of years and it’s getting worse by the day! I even got dragged into it a bit without noticing but thankfully I became aware after a couple of bad purchases and I back to normal ‘wide’ sizes now!

Yeah, getting more off-topic, but it was a revelation to me that Lululemon and Forever 21 sell men’s clothes now?? There is a pronounced trend towards unisex clothing...

Can confirm this is the case in the Nordic countries and the Baltics. The bare-ankled masses are coming for us all.

I'm kind of interested in the new Washington as well, although I really don't need another blue suit. The 50L has fit me well historically. It's easily their most flattering silhouette.

That actually sounds like a cool name for a winter fit.. Except, of course, they are slowly consolidating everything under the Havana umbrella name...

I suppose I could move to Rovaniemi, but there's not all that much going on up there. I'm pretty sure menswear is not really a thing in Svalbard, but that's a cool name for a winter fit.

That Washington is very cool. It's amazing that they only started offering it with notch lapels now. Bring on the custom made option.
