“They are by no means perfect”… That’s an understatement. No offense here, but the “substitute” material Anovos is using is nothing like the original wool elastique material. Anovos “excuses” for not using the correct material don’t hold water, with the possible exception of one, “the cost”. However, If you are going to spend between $1800 and $2000, I’d want the correct woolen material, not some some cotton knock-off. JMTCW!
BTW, I’ve owned an original Maroon, and studied it up one side and down the other. it’s a beautiful uniform (when done right).
