So, the first collection of 2013 will be released on Tuesday. What do you guys expect, what are you looking forward to? I checked for the last 2 years, I assume we will get a rather big collection with both new suits and shirts, some slightly lighter fabrics already included. I'm also hoping for something really special, like the 2012 Traveling Collection.

I would be nice to see an updated 2013 Traveling Collection as well as some slightly thicker fabrics.  I could actually do without the different lining patterns.

Well it's out.  They're calling it "The Ultimate Tech Collection".  Basically, the jackets have a weird hole for you to put earphones through, and there's a really, really odd detachable portion that looks like it's a puffy vest to keep you warm, but it's actually just a small section of a puffy vest  for "looks" (personally I think it looks hideous).

They also released a number of Premium priced ($169) Egyptian Cotton shirts.

Personally I'm pretty bummed on this.  I had to save my money during the Deco Collection for some travel and the holidays, so I opted for a blazer rather than one of their many great suit options.  I was planning on making a suit purchase once the new line came out, and was really hoping for something more like the Deco Collection.  

I guess I prefer retro over tech-forward.  Definitely not going to buy one of these.

Interesting, jacktwins basically got exactly what he wished for. 

I'm kind of split. I usually like it when Indochino gets innovative and does something different and I think there are some good ideas here, but it's not a collection that makes you want to buy everything you see.

I am more a fan of the innovative new style of suit versus the "old school" retro look, that being said I do like the new collection.  I was a fan of the first Travelers collection, and I think this one "1-up'ed" that collection.  This nano-tech they are using on the fabrics seem interesting.  I really like the number of pockets, but I could actually do without the Storm Flap.  I appreciate the option but I don't see it being a reason to buy this type of suit.  I am more of a top coat kinda guy anyway.  

I'll be ordering the Indigo and Brown Pinstripe within the next week.  When I receive it, I will let you know my thoughts.
