Overshirts: was doubting between S and M, got M. It’s fine but a touch smaller wouldn’t hurt. It’s marked dry-clean only. Did anyone wash their (linen) overshirt at home and did it turn out OK?
I have the Washed linen and the cotton overshirts. The washed linen are pre-washed but still shrink a little when you wash on cold and hand dry so be careful.

The cotton overshirt was big on me so I tried to shrink it a little but it shrunk a lot on cold. The material looks much better after a wash but fits more like a shirt now than an overshirt.

Thanks, good to know.

It’s a funny fit – I’m skinny with long arms and most RTW sleeves are way too short on me, unless I go way oversized elsewhere. On this overshirt, the shoulders are correct but the sleeves are super long. No big deal, just unusual proportions.

My sleeves on the cotton overshirt were the same way but after the wash they either fit perfect (if I have a t shirt underneath) or are a little short if I’m wearing anything else. Try the wash and if you believe in a lord pray to them.

Not a great picture but here is the Navy washed linen overshirt in medium. Fits almost perfect at the moment and better with a t shirt. When I wore with a long sleeve OCBD I had to leave the sleeves unbuttoned

Good day!
I accidentally stumbled upon Drakes AW18 lookbook and couldn't help but notice the beautiful red tartan blanket coat. Since it was part of the AW18 collection it is no longer available at their website. Is there anyone out there who might be in possession of one of these coats or who might know were I still could acquire one? I know this might be farfetched but I figured I might as well give it a shot!
Best regards, // JacobView attachment 1203752
Drop 93 has this in stock in a size 50, I believe. Unfortunately, their shop is down until July 22nd because their selling their inventory at a pop up. Maybe you'll be lucky and it'll still be there afterwards!

Just sharing..

This overshirt came in today (pretty quick delivery for being on the west coast). Incredible hand, soft, it is a cotton-linen blend with slight herringbone weave. The herringbone is very subtle. Great color to pair with denim and white pants (if anyone has tips on a good faded denim, PM me!) Was impressed with the all linen overshirt from last season in green. I like how the back of the collar on Drakes' overshirts stand up but the collars flare out a bit. This sand color will be a nice addition. What really sold me was the interior pocket to the right chest, nice touch and extra carry on the go.

Between the green and sand color, not sure if I need any other color to rotate between. The madras overshirt is pretty wild though.

Yeah, the semi-popped collar is a great look. I’d seen it on Drake’s photos and I didn’t think it would work on me, but I like it a lot. It’s a clever design.

Received a couple more deliveries, including washed linen and cotton drill overshirts and this linen/cotton popover which has thrown me for a loop sizing-wise. I don’t expect a popover to fit as close through the body as fully button up shirts, but this seems a bit excessive and I don’t know why the biceps would need much excess fabric. Anyone have experience with this one? Should I expect it to shrink after a wash? As it stands, I can’t imagine either overshirt would fit well on top of this (all size Large).

That seems like the wrong size for you. I would just size down or two. Shrinking won't take that much fabric out, and it's often in length anyway, not width.

Thanks, that’s what my gut was telling me too. Strange because I’ve been a large/16.5 on a few items with them so far.

Here’s the washed linen overshirt in Large for reference. Just a tee underneath here, so any extra room would probably be just right if I had anything more substantial under.

Popovers have to be roomier because, otherwise, you wouldn't be able to put it on. But that one looks like it could use a sizing down. Hard to say unless you had multiple sizes to try on in front of you.

You'd have to have quite the biceps to accommodate that popover....

@mattg1027 How tall are you? The overshirt looks good.
