Collar points look too short and lack the traditional collar roll. Was that your choice? http://oxfordclothbuttondown.com/2013/07/collar-roll/
Then I was misinformed a couple of years back by a local retailer who basically said that I could get the Talbot Model, even though it had been recently dropped, via MTM. I never followed through. BTW, the Talbot model was a great cut.
I am not a menswear marketing professional, but to me the new website could denote a beginning of a "death spiral". Maybe the old way was not profitable enough so big changes have been made. Now we are regaled with "lifestyle" bullshit in lieu of a broader selection and lower prices. Too many menswear retailers, especially the newer generation, pursue this course. It makes me wonder about their shirts, which I have been buying for decades.
Thanks again Gus for organizing. We missed you.I knew I was in for a Great Meetup when I found a parking spot in front of 1345. And it was great. Mike and Adele treking all the way from Gotham to show some terrific clothes. I'll be hitting their shop when I am in NYC this June for some custom shirts and possibly a jacket.

The BV is feminine IMHO. The V is too shiny. If you are going to spend big bucks on a briefcase, you might as well go for some gravitas. Neither do.
Does that mean that they discard the pattern on which your MTM was based?Or, is it a matter of there no longer being a "production run" of the model onwhich the pattern is based? That's equivalent to what happens with RTW.
