I think this is the look Chad was going for, except swapping the white trainers for dainty shoes.

Chiming in with my $ 0.02, I felt this way a few look books ago, possibly S/S ‘18, or F/W ‘18, not sure, it I felt like they were losing me as a customer, and moving away from what I had previously loved about Drakes. Then, later that same season, I had a chance to attend a trunk show and see the seasons offering in person. Did I love every item? No, there are some casual offerings/street ware type items that are just not for me. Buuut, there were still great ties, scarves, shirts, knit ware, and tailoring. For me, I particularly love the shirts, and enjoy the MTM/MTO option, where I can enjoy their fabric selection, but have the sleeves shortened a bit for a better fit. And their OCBDs while not cheap, have (IMHO) the best collar role going today.Sigh.
More reflexive distractions from Drake's turn to ridiculousness? I think I'm one more seasonal look book away from ditching this brand permanently.
If anyone is liking this, Abercrombie re-released their ultra parka which has a shearling collar and a removable hood. It's the best $180ish (on sale) I've spent on a coat. Finishing is really good, details (corduroy trim, thick horn buttons) are top as well.The new expedition parka reminds me of the Cabourn Everest parka. I quite like it. It has a major flaw, though, which everyone who's ever been in the real cold for a prolonged amount of time would know: it doesn't have a hood. That's a big "no, no", and shows it's not suited for the really cold weather.

Note my first Drakes MTM experience was only my second venture into MTM, the other (my first) being a Ring Jacket suit at The Armoury.Hpreston, could you elaborate on your experience with the MTM programme? How did the process go, what about fabric selection and price? There’s preciously little info on the website.
