Why from anywhere else? Genuinely curious. It's much cheaper to buy it here in the UK from Drake's as opposed to other retailers like Clutch Cafe.
Outside of the UK Drakes pricing is a bit insane. To use your example, in USD the shirt is $75 more at Drakes than Clutch Cafe (actually $100 more if you factor in the shipping costs to the US). It can be found for even less elsewhere.

Hey there.

Remember if you are needing Drake’s items from past seasons and below RRP here at HOUSEOFHUNTINGTON.COM we offer great pricing to US and free tracked shipping orders over $100.

Also EU and rest of the world.

Take care

Hi.

Anybody here own and recommend the pique cotton polo shirts? How’s the fit and how are the collars? Worth the price?

If not, anybody recommend any other brands that do good quality and good colour options?

Thanks!

Yeah. I've had several over the years. Chambray, corduroy, linen. Sold some, kept some. Always thinking they'd be available and in arm's reach.
FWIW you can have an MTO overshirt made in any of the standard patterns and customize the length, etc. I recently commissioned one in the three-pocket style and it came out great. Pricing is in line with the off-the-rack models, but varies depending on the fabric you choose. There’s more about this earlier in the thread, probably a few pages back.

Hi everyone,
To those who own a corduroy, tweed, etc. game blazer, do you wear it like a sport coat or as an outerwear? I mean, could such blazer be worn inside (e.g. in the office)? Many thanks!

Corduroy games blazer owner here. I wear it as outerwear. The corduroy would be too thick and warm for an office situation I think.

I tried on one of the newest summer tailored jackets recently and was surprised by how much structure there is in the shoulder. Additionally, these new jackets have a pronouncedly broader lapel and are also longer than their predecessors. In short it feels like a very different silhouette than I’m used to from Drake’s. The changes are evident in the new summer tailoring lookbook.

I find this surprising since I’ve always considered the totally unstructured silhouette of Drake’s jackets to be an integral characteristic of their tailoring. Has anyone else tried these new jackets? What are your thoughts?

What did you try exactly?
