How's the weight/thickness of the linen? Could you wear it as a daily jacket or is it more in the realm of shirting?
It’s the same as e.g. the navy linen chores of the previous summers. Quite substantial, definitely works as a jacket. Contrary to this Spring’s ecru check linen forestiere jacket, which I found too light for my liking.

With the fluctuating weather here in NYC, my go-to has been a summer weight, castleton green, tencel-cotton chore from ‘22. It’s absolutely perfect and I urge Drake’s to bring it back someday.

I love mine too. Do you also feel that it tends to de-colorize a little too much from friction/contact with bag straps?

The dye is definitely on the sensitive side, but that does give it a nice weathered look over time.

Based on the story text, I think the blazers in this editorial are mostly in-store exclusives, with some available at the London store and some in New York. I don’t think they’ll be on the website.

Yes, I was able to grab the herringbone one on a recent trip to London. The great part is they are smaller exclusives based on lasts fabric and made through their MTM house in Italy!

Oh this is tempting. I've never been to one of these. Just how mobbed is it going to be? 😅
I went to the one last Fall. A first for me. It was a 4 day sale, starting on Thursday. I went first thing Saturday morning. By the time they opened, there was a line down the block. I think they limit the number of folks who can be in at one time, but it was crowded. Best to know your size and seek out what you are interested in straight away. Was limited in popular sizes. Good discounts though, but probably be ready to invest some time and go with an open mind about what you might find. They did have a ton of fleeces, if that’s your thing.
