Can anyone with the navy corduroy jacket comment on the sizing of that one? (Paging @SLCRich maybe?) Also, did I see a mention earlier that there were matching trousers for this one- are these available somewhere because I don’t see those? I’m just aware of the 5 wale trousers in black(which I own and adore) but I didn’t see the 8 wale trousers in navy like the jacket. Thanks all - really inspiring clothes in this thread.

I have the navy corduroy jacket. I am a 38R 178cm and 68kg (i am slim). I wear a S. I think sizing is ok, except the jacket is a bit short to me. it's a very nice jacket, corduroy is medium heavy. Jeans on the first pic are 2012 RRL rigid. Haven't heard about matching cords trousers

Really love your second look without the tie and more casual chambray -- well done.

Thanks! If I recall correctly, this one was from 4, maybe 5 years ago now?

I'm a solid M in everything RRL and come to expect the sleeves to be a tad long. Most of the time I'm fine with it, (cuff a sweater or something) but for this piece I did get it tailored to shorten them. I love the fit of it and as already said above, the cord is fantastic. I don't think there's a matching anything with the indigo cord and newer listed tan cord, yet at least.

What's the % fibre blend on these? 16% poly 84% cotton?
The tag says 9% polyester. Interestingly, it doesn't say anything about the other 91% - though the website does say it's cotton.
