    I have that blazer in a 44R along with other tailored fit blazers in 44R from BR. This is one seems to run slightly larger than the other which fit me perfectly. I am having the sides taken in and the sleeves shortened a tad. I love it though and find it very versatile.

    Question: I'm looking to buy a few pairs of slacks to form the foundation for a new wardrobe. I managed to snag several pairs of BR wool pants for $40ish/ea, which I consider a pretty good deal. Is there any reason to return them and hold off until fall/winter because you'd be getting "thicker"/"more" wool or is the shell always going to be more or less the same?

    I think you are good. They are pretty much a year round weight IIRC.

    Anyone have experience with J Crews wheat ludlow suit? How is the color

    Thoughts on this rain jacket? I'm going to London/Paris in October and need something lightweight yet decent looking for this trip.

    I have that Marmot jacket, or at least a similar one, and I like it a lot. It's great in the rain. A little heavier than the last rain jacket I had and it didn't pack down quite as small, but that's relative because it is still light and packs pretty small. I'd say the way it is shown on the model is pretty representative of how it fits me.

    Best place to find Cantarelli sport coat and suit measurements? I want to go crazy on Yoox but want to be sure I am buying the correct size. Also anyone have any experiences?

    ^Fellas, is this faint navy plaid a bad idea for what is essentially my first suit (by that I mean I have suits but none of them fit me anymore so this would essentially be my 'first'). Got a fantastic deal on it in store - sub-$200. Or am I better off with a JCF Thompson without the pattern? Does the pattern make the jacket a bit easier to use as a blazer?

    Yes, I would never suggest a plaid suit as your first suit. Granted, that's a good deal on it, but if I had $200ish to spend on a suit, it'd be on one in solid navy or grey. Also, I wouldn't wear the jacket as a "blazer" but that's just personal preference. Regardless of pattern, most suit jackets look a bit off to me when worn without the matching pants. The texture is often too smooth.

    Yeah, it's probably going back.

    And thanks for putting into words what I've been thinking about in this regard. To that end, does anyone have any particular suggestions re: navy suit jackets that aren't too smooth/too structured/too long to double as a blazer in a pinch? I was thinking JCF just because I remember the fabric being a little less formal and the buttons being brown.

    (this is probably a fool's errand)
