I think I saw you post few items before from this seller...Who was it that was looking for a Pea Coat in large a while back? I have one of these and wear the heck out of it in cooler weather. Fits a bit close so I sized up to XL.
Maker Billy Reid. Material Wool blend. Pit to pit 23. Sleeves from shoulder seam 26. Shoulder seams across 21. Length from bottom of collar 31. Condition Pre Owned.www.ebay.com
Not sure about the NR. Maybe "no reserve" or a code internal to LuxeSwap. I've bought plenty of stuff from Matt and his descriptions are always spot-on. You can ask about the item here:oh i see.
i wear L and I like Bond movies... umm. maybe i will enter the bid for kicks..
btw... what's NR stands for in the title?
The Neapolitan soft shoulder has never quite worked for me and I'm definitely a fan of just a bit more structure. Glad S&M is offering this now.Any Spier & Mackay fans on here see that they released a British cut option? Hoping this becomes a MTO option.
The jacket hangs from the shoulders, so a little weight in one side pocket doesn't affect the balance. Also, it's an iPhone, so there's no bulge in the pocket, like would be the case from older style flip phones. As phones get thinner and thinner, it's even less of an issue. Also, my phone is a standard size. I never get the jumbos, whatever they call it - Plus?.I would think it would make your suit to be pulled to your right... do you balance it out in some way?
I only do that with heavier, tweedier jackets. If I need gloves I'm likely wearing heavier garments anyway and they can handle the abuse. Patch pockets can bow out and loosen a bit over time but that's fine. I don't normally use the front pockets on "business" suits.Question about it. I see lot of folks using breast pocket of their coats to keep gloves... since gloves are rather bulky, do you notice that your pockets now are sort of permanently open?

I keep my phone in inside left and wallet in inside right to balance the weight distributionWhen I'm wearing a suit or sports jacket, I always keep my phone (iPhone 6S, go ahead and laugh) in my inside left breast pocket.
Mohair is great in this climate. I have a 100% mohair sport coat and you can feel the breeze come through it. Stiff fabric, though, like Minnis Fresco.I have an appointment at Ezra's next weekend to pick out a new suit to celebrate the likely re-opening of the office in the next month or so. Here's what I have in mind:
Navy 6x2 double breasted
Slight padding and roping in the shoulder
Single forward pleat w/ 4cm cuffs
Ezra tells me he's now carrying some Halstead fabrics, which I think specializes in mohair and is apparently a pretty good value so I'm considering a dark navy wool/mohair blend.
