I didn't happen to see a response to this gentleman's question yet... :D

Sorry, somehow it got lost in the all the button stance fiasco. We're processing them as quickly as possible, but for the most part they are in the normal turnaround times. The only little slowdown will be the courier service through Christmas/New Years.

I see there are some new shirts up.  I also noticed they are all more expensive.  Is that because you used a nicer fabric?  Also, do you have any plans for a full spread light blue button cuff shirt any time soon?

We've been running the Premium group for quite some time now ($58 CAD, $50 CAD when bundled). They are all 2/80's - 2/120's warp & weft fabrics, 100% ELS Egyptian yarn. The cloth is brilliant. Great handfeel, drapes well, natural wrinkle resistance, excellent dye retention and colour.

 

We have a bunch of full spreads under production at the moment, including light blues. Should be released early in the new year.

I have a couple of the slightly more experience shirts and I think they are well worth the $10 difference. Going to pick up the medium royal oxford

 

Rick, is the sky blue poplin the same fabric as the popular white shirt?

No, it's a 2/120's. The white is 2/100's. The blue is a bit finer and silkier.

We got another small group of TM Goldline - 2 Ply 140's. Don't have much, only enough for about 6 shirts in each fabric. Great, great deal at $129 CAD ($95 USD). http://www.spierandmackay.com/search.php?srchtext=TM

Hi Rick,
First post but long-time lurker here.

I am one of your minority 14.5-shirt/34-suit/28-pants buyer. Do you get comments that your slim isn't slim enough in this particular demographic? I have a lot of room in the waist and bicep/upper arm area that can be slimmed down even more, about 1 - 2 inches on average. I understand that I may be an outlier in my proportions but I don't see many slim/skinny men with small chest but big arms/tummy. There are cases where men have big arms and tummy but I've never seen them with a small neck/shoulder where your 14.5/34/28 fits into.

 

I'm not sure if any of the above make sense. In short, I find that most people in my general size do not have the arms/stomach to fill the bicep/waist area of your slim shirts. Do you get these comments from a lot of people that buys size 14.5 shirts or size 34 suits? In extension to the bicep, the armhole is naturally too big, naturally.

Those brushed look great, tempted to order a few shirts. Perhaps one OCBD and two dressier options.

Do you guys have an English spread option or would anyone who's ordered one mind posting a pic or two?

Also looking at different BD collars and trying to figure out if it's possible to keep the points near or under the jacket. Any ideas if it would look awkward with the buttons so far out? Trying to search the Luxire thread for inspiration but nothing as of yet.

The postman delivered my first S&M sportcoat today - a version 2.0 mid-brown summer staple that I plan to take on an upcoming late-Spring trip to Italy.

The fit is perhaps 90-95% for me, taking into account both "objective" criteria and my personal tastes - pretty solid for RTW. (With tailoring, perhaps slightly higher?)

With less/no shoulder padding, a slightly lower button stance, and (most importantly) some better fabrics I can see myself buying more than a few of these in the coming years.

Other than the fabric, I don't feel like I'm giving up anything to my Suitsupply stuff, and that's for almost half the cost.

Cheers Rick for the good deal!

Made my first SM trouser purchase last week and my first shirt purchase today.  Oh the waiting.

You will be pleasantly surprised.

I hope so. The SM shirts I got were $42 a piece.  Can't beat that for custom.  The pants I got were about $50 a piece.  It's hard to find 100% wool pants anywhere for that price.  Excited about taking this stuff for a spin.

The armhole and bicep are proportional to the chest and shoulder. We actually reduced them over the summer. We sell a lot of 14.5 shirts and have not have many complaints of them being too loose. But we can always improve and I'll most likely have my tailors revisit the patterns just after New Year.
