I meant pics of it buttoned on a person. I’m curious to see what kind of a shape it has if any. It looks nice in the pics so far but unstructured can look not as great on people especially if you have features that could benefit from some structure. The double breasted might accentuate this. If you have broad shoulders with a V shaped torso then yeah it probably looks great as most things do on you.

I decided to get one of the lounge shirts. Do you guys think TTS or one size up? I'm usually a US 42 and am going back and forth between 52 and 54.

I'd say check measurements on site and compare to something you have. If you're close, I'd maybe size up given they say shrinkage might still occur even though it's prewashed, and the lounge shirts can be a bit loose too. But it depends on how far in-between the sizes you are.

Personally I would size up if going for the more relaxed fit. Really depends on if you’re a true US 42 all over. I’m a 42 chest but slim everywhere else, so my 52 spread collars fit closer around my chest but loose around the waist and hip area.

Are you thinking long sleeve or short sleeve?

I was thinking long sleeve. I'm a true 42 chest but a slim waist so I'm leaning toward 52 as well

That’s a killer look, well done.
PS. I’m not sure which I’m more jealous of, the taupe coat, the black Belgians or the ability to pull leopard print off:D

They used to offer tapered and straight fit but I don’t think that’s an option anymore. Can’t see it on the site anyway.

@dalevy pics are now up on site. Not sure if it's actually the massive drape/excess in the chest is intended fit or a big size on the model, but at least there are pics.

Yeah not a big fan of it closed, it just looks oddly too large in the chest while also fitting right in most other places. The open shots look great though

I agree the fit is quite weird. They have said it's a straight fit, but if it's that boxy, I'd insist on a massive taper.. Just my two cents.

Hmm, I've been thinking about the DB shirt jacket, I love the concept and the peached cotton fabric is great. I'm also ok with the straight fit but having a hard time with the measurements because they do really seem large.

I feel the way I always do about Stoffa when I see these images. The styling and photography are so good that I can’t judge if I actually want the pieces or not.
