I feel like there has been some overlap in terms of older Neo cuts and newer standard cuts.

I have a neo jacket from 2018 or 2019, and a standard jacket from 2020.

The lapel width is basically the same, and the older neo has a higher gorge, new standard cut has a lower gorge.

I've never really noticed the difference in lapel curve or belly or whatever.

Agreed. I was thinking something similar. Reason I’m selling the above sportcoat is above I just received the Neo hopsack that dropped earlier this summer. Neo fits me slightly better, but lapels are quite substantive on the standard cut.

No they are not Neo cut. You do know the Neo fits practically the same as the standard cut? or is there another feature you like of the Neo that deters you from the standard cut?

If you needed to ask if they were Neo or not, it would seem you are not that familiar with the differences? :crackup:
neo jackets are longer, so the fit is not the same

Indeed they are, by 1cm according to official specs of a 40R - in my experience, i haven't noticed any difference which is why I said 'fit practically the same'

As someone earlier mentioned - the cut of the standard has got closer to the neo season after season. Factor in manufacturer tolerances and I have been unable to detect any difference in length when wearing.

2. Tobacco fresco jacket in 38 contemporary. I think I may have shortened the sleeves a 1/2 to 3/4 inch. Looking for $224 shipped. FYI, it looks like there are stains in the photos, but that is just lighting. The jacket has NO stains.

I bought the olive/navy check jacket from a few years ago and had pants made to complete a suit. See photos. Jacket only alteration was sleeves shortened 1/8-1/4 inch.
