Just received the 3 shirts I ordered for Black Friday! It reinforces my satisfaction with S&M shirts, and thus, will definitively order some more whenever the new stock rolls in!

stopped by the shop yesterday and had another great experience with Rick and his team.

the new belts really are fantastic and are a great deal for the price.

i also got measured for my first custom shirt order, and bought a couple ties. my wallet will take a hit when they open downtown

Question for the flannel lovers out there.

 

For next fall we are looking to work with a Biella Mill that makes a really great flannel. They have two qualities that we are interested in.

 

One is Mid-Weight Flannel, that runs 310 gsm. Soft and great for cooler weather.

 

OR

 

Heavyweight 350 gsm Flannel. A bit heavier and coarser, but good for proper cold weather.

 

Both would be approx. $175 CAD/pr. ($130 USD at current exchange) making them an incredible value for Italian Milled Flannel trousers.

 

What is the preference for those that would be considering flannel trousers? Last year the feedback was that the trousers we ran we a touch light. Those were 295 gsm.

 

Thanks,

Rick

I'd be more interested in mid-weight, as I suspect they'd be more useful in a climate-controlled office.

I'd prefer the heavy weight.

Also, pics of a recent custom shirt I got with crow's foot stitching/mop buttons.

I would say medium weight and please keep the rise a bit high. No low rise...
post #2724 of 6174
Heavy weight please

My order. (Pardon the scruff, and the dirty mirror.)

Got a bunch of my stuff from a recent order. Love the tobacco brown suit, I'm so glad I purchased it. The fabric on the soft washed casual chambray is fantastic but i wasn't expecting dual chest pockets with buttons, I'm not a big fan of the look. Debating returning vs taking a seam ripper to the pockets (at least one of them, anyway). Very happy with the light and mid-blue poplins and the milner stripe shirt as well!

There's nothing like a heavy weight flannel.  The only flannel I own is heavy weight and I live in a warm climate.  There is just something so wonderful about the heavy cloth.  Mid weight is fine too, but it's nothing to write home about.

These came in today. The Gingham is the one I was least sure about, but it may be my favorite of the 3. Very soft twill fabric and love the scale of the checks--not too big or too small. The brushing on the blue OCBD is also very subtle, making it very versatile.

post #2729 of 6174

Is there a way I could make my gray OCBD more brushed?

Wash it with a rough towel or old pair of jeans. That helps a bit. But the more it's washed the softer it will get.

The new group that just went into production has a tiny bit more brushing. It really is an amazing cloth.
