Well, I like it ... on other people ... who pose for pictures on the Internet. We'll see how much I like it when I'm taking my 2-year-old daughter for a walk on a Saturday morning.

@Gerry Nelson, I know that you have this coat. Any head turning that you've noticed from onlookers when you go out in public with this thing on your back?
I always think they will but I've never had a comment. People have actually commented more on my indigo cord chore coat than on this.

Dude, wear the hell out of that jacket while being a great dad to your daughter! There is so much of Drake’s clothing that I love but am too “cautious“ to wear...admire guys who just go with it!!

Another idea for styling the red jacket:
View attachment 1358645
Yeah, in most of the styling pics I’ve seen, the coat looks best with a navy knit underneath and a pair of lighter wash or even cream denim. Sneakers make the look even more casual, though I think I’d personally go with a pair of chukkas most of the time.

Side note, what is it about the dude pictured that enables him to pull off almost anything? If I just saw a headshot of this guy, I would never imagine him wearing something like he is in this picture ... but it seems to work for him.

All recent rugby shirts have Made in Portugal label.
Do you happen to know the factory where this is made? Sunspel also has many products with a Made In Portugal label all coming from the same factory.

Looking to purchase a Drake's cashmere cardigan. The size says XXL (23" pit-to-pit) which sounds like Kent Wang sizing. Is that accurate? I'm normally a 44R in a sportcoat, but have seen around here that folks often size up on their knitwear.

There is a bunch of Drake's stuff at 50% off at Liberty of London. Nothing I needed, but there are some solid linen ties along with some more whimsical SS stuff

I normally wear a 42R (sometimes 43R if it can be found) and ordered a 46 in the cardigan. the 44 was way too tight (especially over say a button down) and also a little short (I'm 6'2").

Perfect! Thank you, then I definitely feel very good about this.

Some good deals on Drake's stuff over at Cavour. Picked up one of the awning stripe linen shirts for $133, they are still $355 on the Drake's site I believe. (I was inspired bu pics of Gus wearing his) Some nice ties and pocket squares and scarfs also.

If anyone sees any good deals on their Crosby chukkas please pass it along!

Great catch and Cavour is a very nice site to support in times like these. However, how come they‘re that much cheaper than on the Drake‘s site? Bit surprised to be honest.

Cavour automatically deducts VAT whereas Drakes doesn't do that for the US site (even on orders under $800). But yeah the stuff on Cavour is great, I really like the swim trunks and it looks like they're not on Drake's own website yet?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
