Is there an SA there anybody has contact info for?

Same sizing for me. Just let out the body a bit more on the Tenero, which also seems a bit longer in the body. Antonio posted a difference between the cuts a while back.

I love both.

There's a good variety of dress shirt sizes on sale at Saks.com at the moment.

I did not see that pricing. I was there Thursday.

Suits were about 40% off, maybe 50 on the clearance rack, but the lowest pricing I saw was maybe a few weeks back, when they allowed the $25 off ever $100 discount to be stacked on top of other promos. Best to wait until end of Jan for the seasonal clearance.

I love the charcoal and navy flannel suits and the glen plaid light grey one.

Totally in love with the trousers, though.

This line of thinking is the reason why the switch was made from 3/2 roll tipo to 2 button balthazar. If the people who appreciate cool things refuse to pay full price for them, they are replaced with things that are diluted down to reach a broader, mass market.

Antonio,

To be clear, my point was that, IF people are pursuing those levels of discounts, then this time period is when it'll likely happen.

I personally buy at the start of the season when I can because there only ever seems to be 1-2 units in my size each season. So, the longer I wait, the harder I tend to get screwed with availability.

Happy New Year to you and the fam, sir smile.gif

Solid picks! I love that houndstooth. Not sure I saw long coat posted by anyone, but looks like a gem. Nice work.

This. I'm finding myself ordering more and more from Japan, simply because if the greater diversity of choices

That, or MTO.

North American retail suffers greatly from the toxic sales schedule and ill-conditioned customers.

"Toxic sales schedule" is a painfully accurate way of describing retail in this country.  Sales are nice when they hit as I'm saving up for something, but I have trouble finding my size most of the time, so I can't wait for a sale. What I want will likely be gone.  I'd rather have a few things I think are amazing than a lot of things bought on sale and then wonder "why did that cool company go out of business."

 

I wanted to pop into this thread and say the Hunting Jackets and Overcoats look outstanding.  I nearly shed a tear when I saw the chest measurement was too small for me on the green hunting jacket on the NMWA site.

Yep, me too. Yet I don't think it is the fault of the consumer. Retail has taught us to wait and we expect to buy things on sale...that is good news for us.

100% agree with this.

Americans consume for the sake of consumption, so average consumer pays less attention to details like fit and fabric. I also blame the retail SAs for not being too knowledgable on the stuff they're selling.

Just started down the MTO rabbit hole myself...I blame you guys, and that's the alibi my lady will get!

Did anyone else get the wool-cashmere shawl collar pull over? It's my favorite piece. Spot on fit. Will post pics soon.

I would disagree with this.  I would say that the internet has probably driven up the rate of consumption, just because so much more is readily available. and the information feedback is getting faster and faster, and so the enthusiasm/feeding frenzy over specific products and products in general is magnified much fastr than used to be possible. I think that certain types of products sell better online then they would under the brick and mortar system, and some, very much less so, because photos on the internet overemphasize silhouette above everything else.

Antonio, I'm sure the answer is an understandable "no," but is there any chance the body of the sport shirts ever gets longer?

You pick awesome fabrics, have a great collar, but after trying on a couple shirts at Stanley Korshak today, the body is just too short for me. Or I could just show a lot of midriff . I know it's probably just me, though.

They're short on me too. It's a big downside I choose to overlook bc of the fabric and collar as well

Blame 08, retailer went deep to survive then very few can get out the habit once consumer saw how low it could go...

I think the average consumer more attention these days. I mean even mediocre suit brand have to pay lip service to say whether they're half or fully canvassed, and the used to be crappy shoe brand will now come out with a line that's goodyear welt (might still be crappy). Those by itself does not guarantee quality, but the fact retailer actually has to say something about it means consumer were more aware than at least 5 years ago. They might not actually know what it means (i.e. surgeon cuff certainly doesn't mean anything), so you can argue it's purely deceiving, but if you have to at least try to deceive, then I assume consumers are more aware.
