Owning both Spier & Mackay and suitsupply, I would say the construction is on par, though suitsupply probably has the edge on material. In terms of value, I think Spier & Mackay is great, especially with the changes they've made for the model 2 suits.

I guess I should have been more specific on the feedback I was looking for... With the 3 solid suits I have already, would the mid-blue windowpane be a good choice for the fourth?

Since Clags has offered such a perceptive symbolic critique, care to tell us what we're looking at literally, Veni?

Two MTO formosa arrived.

 

One charcoal with faint red overcheck, and one navy blue with faint blue overcheck (the blue plaid on the website).

 

Hard to take pics right now, I'll do it later.

Could not have paired it better myself

Do any of you gents have experience with tie crafters?  Care to share any insight/experiences?  I have a few ties that are too long and would like to have them shortened.  Not sure if this is easily done by any local tailor or if I should bring them to an establishment such as tie crafters.  I work nearby so not an inconvenience to stop by the shop.  TIA.

I had ties widened and shortened there a few years ago. They did a fine job.

There are a couple of posts in the Sam Hober thread a year or two back about people who used it (I think someone stained his tie,or something like that), and everything went well.

^^^ Thanks guys.  Im just shortening the ties a few inches so I would think its a pretty straight forward job.  I do not plan to alter the width at all - I will just deal with a bigger knot from the shortening.  I will give them a shot.

post #25198 of 37396

I believe there are a few threads that mention using them. A few people reported problems but on balance I think the reviews were positive.

What else did I miss, guys ?
