Greg, I completely understand reluctuance in carrying size VII. At the end of the day, you have a business that needs to be profitable. You can't sit on inventory because you want to cater to every size guy out there. 

 

Here's my sob story: I have several SS coats, all size VII, I've not ever tried any other size. They all fit great, slightly relaxed, comfortable, etc. Knits, on the other hand...only size VI. They all fit good, but not great. I think we've all fallen into the trap of, "Oh, what's the pit-to-pit? 23"? Perfect, I'll take it!. Then, get it home and realize it doesn't work for some reason...

 

Case in point: I had a SS anthracite cadigan, size VI that "technically" fit, but something felt off about it. I didn't love it and ended up selling it to kgfan. I then saw his (awesome) fit pics of it and thought immediately, " Yeah, that didn't really ever fit me." It wasn't until I saw someone else wearing (literally) the exact same item of clothing I had previously owned to realize I would benefit from a size up, that its not just about garment measurements (and that it's hard for kgfan to look bad, ever). Same is true with my Ijevan...I think a size VII would be perfect. But, good size VII knits are like golden unicorns, they exist only in theory. 

 

 

 

Executive Summary: I fit size VI, but would prefer size VII. Greg, please sell size VII.

Anyone else have a problem with the sleeves being too long in the shirts? I need a VII in the "slim" shirts (the ones with darts) and it fits fine everywhere except the sleeves end up being way too long.

Had this problem with the shirts this season too. The shoulder was almost too small, pit to pit fit great but the sleeves were about an inch too long. Size 4 fits perfect everywhere but the sleeve and Size 3 fit perfectly in the sleeve but way too tight everywhere else.

looks like it's going to be an expensive FW next year.

 

Yeah, dry-cleaning all the smoke out of every purchase is gonna be freakin' exxpensive.

Apologies if I have seemed to imply that we wouldn't carry VII. We'll have sz III to VII. What I wanted to understand is really how many guys here wear VII so we could take that into account for quantities...

Usually I'm a VI but have gone with VII on some of his slimmer stuff. But not that often.

Do you get any indication for how a given piece is cut before making the order?

I have three shirts, one from S/S '12 and two from A/W '12. S/S shirt the sleeves are a little bit long, but not ridiculously so; A/W shirts are pretty much perfect.

I am a 44/Size 3 and have two A/W 12 shirts. Absolutely flawless fit except the sleeves are a tad long, and because so many Schneider shirts are wonderfully patterned going to the tailor's not usually an option. I'm just grateful the sleeves aren't WAY too long...I recognize that making perfect sizing for everyone is difficult with RTW, and it makes perfect sense that some people with the same shoulder size as me might have longer arms.

Alright @gdl203 you need to stock shirts with curved hems and pants for FW14 (particularly the ones shown on the Four Pins site slides 15, 20, and maybe even 17). Get them MCers outside of their "standard" pants comfort zone.

I'm curious tonio, why do you prefer curved hems? Is it just an aesthetic preference?

I own both SS straight and curved hems (though only 2) and I like them both, but I would prefer to see Greg stock some curved hems because of how rare they are to find. Most if not all stockists usually only carry his straight hem cuts. Both are fine, I'm looking for some more diversity.

The straight hem gives the look a modern and "fashiony" (for lack of a better word) connotation as well as splits the look in half with a sharp line across the middle. It works very well in specific cases but for people who like flowing lines and versatile pieces, they are problematic.

yeah not much of a fan of the straight line hem, i like a nice long arc hem, it's more elegant. the straight hem can be interesting with the right details but to me it's not as nice. i get that most guys these days want a shorter shirt that looks neat untucked and all that. I find it kind of boring though. just my taste anyway.
