I have had this done.
On my particular over shirt it was expensive as they had to take the sleeves off and shorten them from the arm hole end. I think I paid £50.
That said, it made the over shirt much much better for me and was absolutely worth the expense. I’ve come to really love having alterations done on casual clothes - It can really take a piece that is ok, to great.
Thanks, yeah the rest of it fits perfectly but it’s either I always roll the sleeves or have them shortened.

That is a gorgeous chore coat. Is it still available? I can't see it on their website...
Thank you!

I am finding myself rather intrigued by the summery fair isle sweater vest in the last lookbook. Light colours, perhaps in linen. It feels right though I cannot quite explicate why. Seems to be an unique item for the shot though and not on offer for sale?

It's in cotton sadly. It was available here: https://www.drakes.com/multi-colour-fair-isle-knit-sleeveless-v-neck-jumper

Looks like its sold out.

You can see the details if you find a cached version. $425 for a cotton vest is very steep.

If you search eBay for "Ralph Lauren Fair Isle vest," you can find an alternative for about $125

Hm. I think what is appealing about it is its sparse design. It reminds me of something though I cannot yet recall what. Has a 70s smart casual wear vibe about it?

Thank you! I got it in the sale in January 2020. They might not make it any longer.
It is one of the best chore jackets I've seen! Such a beautiful colour. I am obsessed with their chore jackets! I have the rust heavyweight suede one (without the blanket lining), the dark denim one. And now I want to get the forest green corduroy one and possibly even the navy tencel one 🙈

Can vouch for the corduroy one, it's the perfect shade of green!

how did you size on the suede jacket? I am a size medium in the overshirts and am thinking of getting a 38

I bought a size medium in the overshirt and am a 38 in the chore jacket! I have a horrible feeling that they may have sold out here in the UK. But perhaps not where you are! I really hope you get one as it's a gorgeous piece. Let me know!
