Samuelsohn MTM - Page 3

post #31 of 136

Thanks for the information.  I did surgeon cuffs too.  I hope they planned on having them finished after delivery.  That's what I asked for anyway.  I can't imagine them cutting them at the factory off the initial measurements.  I hope I like the herringbone.

Anybody have experience with the Ashton cut? Has a bit of roping, and is a bit slimmer. Thinking of taking the plunge.

 I need to check what the cut is on my Navy Birdseye, but its a Sammy that is a bit slimmer with some roping. Sounds like the same, but I'm not sure. Its my favorite suit right now (although it may be second after I get in a new Sammy in a few weeks). The roping threw me off a bit at first, but I pulled the trigger because I needed a navy, and this one was on sale for $250. Not sure I would have ordered one with the roping, or that I'll be getting another with roping, but I enjoy it quite a bit. It adds some variety to my closet for sure.

 

Either way, I'll check the tag when I get home, and see if its the same...

Okay, just waiting on photo for double breasted PL vest.  Anyone think 4 welt pockets is overkill because I may just do the two lower ones?

I've also noticed that Sammy's now offers in-between sizing for certain suits (i.e. 39R, 41R, etc...).

The soft shoulders are great on Gable jackets:

Wow, my size in my favorite suit!  Too bad I recently bought an almost identical navy pinstripe.  Someone should jump on this!

They also offer semi-long sizing. First time I'd heard of such a thing, but I'm a noob, so it may be more common than I think.

I also noticed that they're now offering 'Paul Stuart' fabrics as part of their MTM program (you don't have to go to Paul Stuart to get the exclusive fabrics).

Any idea if they offer MTM trousers and what the approx cost would be?
post #40 of 136
The do; I think the cost is around 300-350?
post #41 of 136
A waste of money IMHO. Why would you do MTM pants???
post #42 of 136
So that they fit better and so I can pick fabrics.

Most decent pants are $250-$400 off the peg (if you can find exactly what you're looking for) and then they would need to take them to ta tailor and make additional minor changes. Why not skip a step?

My local tailor's prices begin at $285 for pants in basic fabrics.

I don't think Samuelsohn compares in quality to other pants in that price range (up to $400). I have 3 pairs of Samuelsohn pants alone. I bought them on sale for $200 each and they might be worth that but I can't see paying double to get better material. Most pants can be altered to fit propertly at a reasonable cost. I have never spent more than $40 myself. I encourage you to check other OTR sources and strongly recomment HY pants although they do fit slim.

I have to believe that, at some point, Sammy has done this vest before.  It isn't as though I am asking for something that is completely unheard of.  Also Greenfield and PRL offer it is as a stock option.  I do want to insist on getting a MTM with a DB, peak vest because it is for my wedding and truly want something special.

I've seen the illustrations of the Gable. They are hardly "soft Shoulders" by my purist standards. If you want real
Natural shoulders from Samuelsohn, go with their Greenwich or their Talbot models. The I've tried both
and the Talbot IMHO is somewhat more "Neapolitan" than the Greenwich. Both are great coats.

Thanks, this is helpful.
