    How much is the outlet stuff reduced? Thinking about jumping on a Ryanair flight to Weeze and going to Roermond to buy some sport coats and shirts.

    Can one contact them to see what they have in stock?

    Not worth the flight. A guy drove from London and just about broke even.

    Which is... not very often at all. The only thing I've really seen on sale so far are a few sportcoats

    That was me, definitely is worth a flight if you plan on buying a few suits yourself and covering those costs by picking a few up to sell on. I more than paid for my trip and a couple of suits, got pretty decent money for most of them selling to a guy who sells suits on ebay and then the rest just went for what I paid for them plus my expenses on here, all in all a worthwhile trip. The outlet is a real mixed bag though in terms of pricing, plenty of bargains but then some stuff with very little knocked off. Shame I went whilst all the summer stock was there though, im planning another trip in a month or two to try and get some winter stuff!

    My apologies for the misinformation! Did you get the blue check one?

    No worries, yeah I got the blue check one, says its some sort of cashmere blend. From the looks of it, and how it's not been photographed on a model it must be from atleast 2 years ago, so fingers crossed its not a mistake on the site!

    I'd say it is risky to go as you don't know what's in the store beforehand. I drove there once and was massively dissapointed. Practically nothing had a lowered price, nearly all suits were normal price and they only had the staples in there. 80% were grey Napoli suits.
    They had a few sportcoats with lowered price that looked nice but sizes were either very small or very big.
    Perhaps I was just unlucky in terms of timing. I went there a Saturday 3-4 months ago.

    There's more than 1 outlet. Perhaps going to a less well known one helps.

    Agree with Monkeyface, there's more than 1 and also I was told deliveries happen on Thursdays so that's when I went, I imagine by Saturday all the decent stuff is gone. That said, there were very very few sport coats when I was there.

    I've just had confirmation of my order being shipped, so at least it isn't a mistake! I'll get a couple of photos up when it arrives

    Is the Havana cut the most flattering on general body types / proportion?

    I looked at the Washington and don't need the peak lapel. I need an easy jacket to wear to and from work.

    Question is whether sizing up from 38R to 38L is a good thing based on measurements provided online. 38L is longer in the sleeves and body, and slimmer in the chest and waist, which is ideal. The length more appropriate in terms of a jacket following traditional cuts (I am trying to avoid short jackets/fashion forward styles).

    Also, does anyone own a Havana style jacket and can say or show how high or low the buttoning stance is?

    I am only 5'9 FWIW so I cannot imagine the jackets being that short on me.

    I find the length of the Havana to be spot on for me. I'm 5'8 and don't have the problem of the jacket being too short at all.
