What is your wishlist for the upcoming months?
For the first time in ages, I feel I have pretty much everything I want from a non-business wardrobe. So, hopefully, Drake’s won’t be coming out with great stuff lol… :)

Then again, I would probably still jump on a linen field jacket, as pictured below.

Can't wait to see what are we getting for this Spring/Summer season.

I would love to see the return of the Mk. II Games Blazer and different fabrics (Ripstop, herringbone, twill, etc) for the Mk. I and Mk II. There isn't much games blazer right now. Other jackets like the Jungle Jacket or the Rain raglan coat would be very much welcomed instead of releasing more Chore coats in a handful of colours (Which I love, but I'd rather get something different this time).

Also, more rugby shirts and camp collar shirts in some archival graphics would be great.

What is your wishlist for the upcoming months?
I would be stoked for a linen overshirt. I recall someone saying they do them MTO now but I imagine that's pretty expensive.

I’ve got the washed linen overshirt from a few years ago, and it is indeed a very nice piece. It gets a lot of wear spring-fall.

I think for MTO you just pay the full price of the piece (no discounts, but no up charge either)

Having said all of that, the Drakes overshirt is a great piece in general, and I agree with you, it should stay in the seasonal lineups.

Thanks for the reply guys! Think I might pull the trigger when the right deal comes along.

Also wondering, are these selvedge?

Hi, sorry there are not selvedge but we have other trousers from Drake’s which are.

Hi. Are there any good drakes stockists in Milan? Particularly interested in games blazers.

Good to know. Thanks!

I am also hoping that they bring back the safari style linen overshirt. I actually set up an eBay search for it just yesterday.

Additionally, I am curious to see the Games blazer line up for the season. Pure linen or linen blends that could be worn deeper into the summer.

Also looking for a chambray work shirt which they currently don’t offer. And other short sleeve shirt options...

I want the green linen chore in @woO's photo - but I have to watch my closet space.

There’s one of the old cotton-cashmere ones in 44 on eBay ending in 45 mins:


I have a pair of trousers in that fabric and like it a lot.

Hey all. I just snagged this pair of canvas games trousers from Nordstrom on deep discount. The color is marked "Tobacco".

While I'm plenty happy with my new pair of pants, I'd love to find a matching blazer.

So far, I've only been able to find this Games Mk. II, which is marked as "Brown", although they look pretty close in color.

The only jacket I've found that is canvas and marked "Tobacco" for color is this chore coat.

Anyone have any idea where I might find a matching blazer for these?

Thanks!

I think the blazer that you linked is from the same set (from last year I believe). Different retailers tend to give different names to the same SKU.

Thanks for the info. Wish it wasn't full retail....
Any tips on where else I might look to find one? (preferably not full retail) Google is only turning up so much.

This e-store out of San Diego has a linen chore on sale. Other Drake's items as well if you scroll his site and sort by "Brands".
