MTM dress shirt prices? 

Prices will only affect future suits as they are purchased at a higher price. We haven't determined the final price yet until after the suits are invoiced to us. It's not only the USD cost. We also get dinged on duties and taxes at the higher converted rate. Massively sucks to be an importer in Canada right now.

Which one of these fabrics is more opaque between the sky blue fine twill and your pale blue royal oxford? Also, which one would be more versatile (i.e., less dressy)?

To be honest, I almost felt a little guilty buying three custom shirts for just over $100.

I must be missing something because it looks like $80 CAD per shirt for an order of three. That's about $175 USD.

 

Oh wait, you mean with the 20% off coupon?

Bundle pricing brings it down to $59 per shirt, then the 20% off coupon.

Rick,

Since you are already planning S/S 2016, do you plan on stocking more T. Monti linen shirts? I love the 2 I ordered!

Ah OK, I had searched for a specific type of fabric and the regular prices were all $99, I thought that was the standard for all custom shirts.

 

@SPIER & MACKAY - can you comment on the difference between your standard suit sizing (on the chart) vs. the short sizes? I'm looking at your 42S solid navy contemporary cut and I don't see the sizing for the few short options you have.

Rick, any idea why my left lapel (right in the picture) is doing this? It's slightly pulling. Does it just need to be ironed?

I think this usually means that the jacket at the buttoning point is too tight. Someone validate this for me.

Yep buttoning point needs a bit of a tweak. No big deal, take it back to Rick or your tailor.

I was sick that day so I wore an undershirt. Perhaps that could be creating the issue. I will wear it next time without an undershirt and see if the problem still persists. If it does then will take it to Rick.

I can't imagine that an undershirt would make any difference, they are not typically that thick. In fact, I make a point of always wearing an undershirt in an effort to enhance the longevity of my quality shirts.

Not in the near future. The season has passed for us. We're already working SS16 stuff.


Any clues about what you have been looking at for SS16? My vote is for some fresco trousers/sportcoats and matka/shantung/grenadine ties.

^I actually would say to stay out of the grenadine market. There are too many sellers right now all hovering around the same price point, I'm not seeing much differentiation among them, which will make it hard for you to gain a foothold with buyers. Matka/shantung are nice but again, I don't know if S&M could obtain materials and then have them crafted at a price point significantly different from competitors who are already established. That said, I'd love some shantung. One of the tie/square/accessory affiliates recently closed their aff thread because there were too many similar companies on SF and they decided to pursue different marketing avenues.

 

Fresco - would be super excited to see something with this or a tropical weight wool, that said I'm quite happy with your wool/linen blends, they're a fairly unique selection and for those of us in tropical climates, a boon.

I think there's some buttondown linens coming, I'm so excited for these. Beyond this, I'm pretty stoked for any offerings and can't wait for previews to start rolling out.

Matka, shantung, and grenadine ties can all be found at chippneckwear.com. I have 2 grenadines and I'm very happy with them.
