Their dress shirts are definitely targetted toward the slimmer type of build, but this bias isn't as strong with the polos.

I should mention that I prefer a more athletic style polo without the grippy sleeves so the Spier & Mackay style is not for me both in terms of sleeves and fabric, but I'm sure other people love it.

 

The polos were designed to coincide with our slim fit shirts, so they are quite fitted. They are a traditional polo in that they are made with a pique knit and have a ribbed collar and sleeve cuffs.  We are really happy with the fabric. They are airy and light and soft for summer with a great natural stretch.

 

The ribbing on the sleeve is fitted as well, but as it is a rib, it will ease with wear as well.

Great. Can you PM me the process to go about that?

Really well. I'm actually headed over to the factory next week to sit and work with the tailors on next stage of samples. Still looking at a fall run. Possibly even a small, internal crowd funded test run for them. Kind of like what Gustin does.

Here is the wide spread collar from a MTM shirt I had made.

Collar is fused but damn comfortable. Quality of the pic is lesser cuz I made it smaller, ah well.



Excuse the wrinkled suit. I was in a rush!

Edit, no collar stays in there

Thanks guys. I'm surprised this thread isn't more popular, Rick's MTM program is really great and he's very knowledgeable about menswear.

These shirts seem good value for MTM business shirts, especially considering shipping costs to Canada from other manufacturers. I'd love to come in person for a fitting since I would consider myself definitely not suitable for RTW with upright posture, long arms, dropped shoulder, etc. Would Spier & Mackay be able to account for all of these things? I'm also waiting for some more casual oxford shirtings as I rarely wear a suit, do you guys have more fabrics available in-store?

Hi Mashfir,

 

Yes, absolutely. We draft patterns from scratch. Essentially, the pattern is bespoke, which means there is no limit to what can be done to the shirts. We have more fabric in store than online. We are currently clearing out all our spring/summer fabrics. New fall/winter fabrics will arrive in Mid August, including heavier oxfords.
