Brown Corduroy Chore Jacket, Blue Check Two Pocket Work Shirt (sucker for their workshirts... I know, not really CM but work great for me and get the most wear), Cobalt Blue Corduroy Shorts, Wine and blue block pocket square...

the shorts and the chore jacket were "on my list" of things to get
I got the Brown Corduroy Chore Jacket last season and will say it's one of my favorites. That's one of the items I wear the most and look forward to doing so every chance I get.

To those who have owned the raglan mac coat-did you size up, or take your regular size? Particularly concerned about sleeve length.

I tried it on in store and am waiting to receive it from the archive now. Definitely true to size.

The yellow seatown chore coat is not that bad to be honest... Perfect item to take along when going to a hotel pool or Italian beach... :)

Anyway, just saw this pic on instagram. Really surprised how much I like these green fatigue trousers.

Got my mixed case of ties. Not sure how I’ll wear a white grenadine but the others are useful. The blue and red repp also has a mustard stripe and is really nice.

The real disappointment is the seafoam satin tie. They pack the ties in rough corrugated cardboard and it appears that tie got caught when they inserted the box into the outer cardboard sleeve, so there is a horizontal scuff across the bottom at the widest point. The tie has a peached surface so only visible in some light, but it’s annoying because it was so avoidable.

For CAD 33.00 each, including tax and shipping, I’m satisfied.

To those who have been following drakes for longer than I have: do you think last years raglan coats will be re-released this year?

Probably not, but you might be able to pick some up in their next sample sale.
I would bet we will see more raglan coats this fall/winter, but they change up the colors and fabrics every year.

So, if your looking for a specific one from last year, concur with @cristofromkensington , if on the other hand, you are just looking for the style, I bet there will be new offerings.....

They briefly teased a few of the new fabrics a little while ago on IG. No screenshots to provide, I’m afraid.

On the topic of raglan coats, I have the herringbone from FW '20 (as highlighted here)


The fabric is killer, super lightweight for the size of the coat, and incredibly soft. The Herringbone has a great scale to it....

But, and here's the rub, I was so infatuated, I bought the last piece, which is two sizes down from my normal. I see that some resellers, recommend sizing down one
https://gentlemensfootwear.com/products/drakes-grey-wool-raglan-coat

I can't stop thinking that I bought a coat two sizes down... is it too small (not really)? If it does fit (it does) am I missing the "intended" fit? Should I just plan to wear over a light layer (most coats, I like to size to fit over tailoring)

Anyone else have one of the raglan coats? How did you size?

I'm looking at the cord shorts online... can anyone confirm that the size charts are accurate? i.e. the actual waist is around an inch smaller than the tagged waist?
To post a followup that will probably not be very useful to anyone -- turns out the size chart was pretty accurate, the shorts did run very small, and I bought the wrong size :(

Meanwhile, I also got the patchwork denim shirt from the archive sale, where the size chart says it's 24.75" pit to pit -- the actual garment measures 22.25".

I got the red striped linen shirt from the archivesale, and this 16.5 also fits smaller than my regular 16.5 Drake’s shirts - including the blue striped linen shirt from a previous archivesale.
