From a few months ago, also tied in the manner Gus displayed. It’s a navy dominant color scarf which complements many clothing styles and colors. I wear it casually, and with sport jackets and ties without feeling self conscious or standing out too much.
What trousers did you pair here?

I will be staying in the Village for a week and will hang around there and mid-town for a few days- J Mueser, Leffot, No Man Walks Alone, RRL, Jay Kos, Paul Stuart, the downtown Armoury, etc., and then a day or so on the UES De Corato, RL Mansion, Bergdorf, Peter Elliot and the Armoury. Will also be shopping for a watch for my son who lives in NYC.
Check out Kai D Utility in Brooklyn also. Super underrated original pieces, and they're also one of the only stockists for De Bonne Facture and some other hard to find brands in the area.

I emailed them. They said it’s an in-store service only. Not planning on going to NY anytime soon, so I guess I’m out of luck.
That’s a bummer, I’ve been keeping an eye out for this style as well. So it sounds like the only way to get it now is to do MTO which has to be in-store but the NYC store isn’t open outside of the Armoury pop up? I will probably be in NYC in January if that’s the case and was already planning on swinging by a few places.

Hello, everyone. Would those who have the unlined suede chore jacket please give me some sizing advice? I recently purchased the games mk1 corduroy jacket in size 46 and it fits great, though I need the sleeves shortened (I have broad shoulders compared to my other bodily dimensions...) I have the ripstop jungle jacket in 46 and it's slightly oversize but I like it that way. Assuming I prefer a slightly generous fit, any particular advice? My concern with the 48 chore jacket is the arms, which I do not want to get shortened (no good tailor in my city). Thank you very much!

I had the ripstop jacket and the unlined suede chore coat. I got the same size in both. The ripstop jacket fits me slightly oversized, and the chore coat fits me similarly to JJ in your pictures there. Best of luck. It's a beautiful garment. I ultimately sold the suede coat because it's unlined and I couldn't wear knitwear underneath without it causing incredible pilling. FWIW, I kept my denim chore coat (also same size across the board).

Thanks for the advice, very helpful. I am aiming for the styling of JJ, so that gives me hope.

BTW, re: sample sale, last year there was one on or around October 1st.

Yeah, that's what it sounds like.

It's crazy - I can't seem to find one for sale anywhere online. Not sure why they don't offer it if it's in such high demand.

Anyone know what the MTO prices are for the overshirts?

The MTO overshirt I did this past summer was 435ish USD

Loving the new cord suit but after lengthening the sleeves to the right fit i feel the button positioning is off and would like to get the group’s take 🙏🏼 would you recommend moving the top button down? Thanks!
