@spiermackay Your voicemail message still hasn't been changed since December!

So it's safe to say, most would prefer the shirts to be more for casual wear than to wear with a tie in warm weather. So in that case BD would be better. Let me work on the collar.

Could do a cotton linen blend if the collar is tough to hold the shape. Last years linen fabric seemed like it would hold a collar pretty well though, considering the madras were way thinner and still hold the button down collar shape fairly well.

We have a proto of the new linen with a BD collar, but the collar was fused with a cardboard like fusing. The linen itself should be fine, but I'm getting a sample done up with a non fused lining for the BD. Should work out well.

Oh, am I in the minority here in requesting that if you do a denim or chambray BD shirt that it just have a single standard chest pocket and not single or dual western-style pockets?

@spiermackay I'm finally attempting to put my money where my mouth is and order a custom shirt. I remember reading that your Paypal checkout was removed temporarily, but your store portal doesn't accept AMEX. Any ETA on getting this resolved? Unfortunately, I won't use any other card.

The paypal won't be back until we get the new site launched in about a month.

 

You can email customer service with your order details, and they can send you a paypal payment request, which you can pay by Amex.

Great, I'll do that right now. Thank you again for your promptness!

Looking forward to seeing this. Have been eyeballing making a linen shirt from one of your US peers, but with the exchange rate plus your shop 15 minutes from my office, would rather come to you!

I see, I bet it will turn out great.

I think we are all on the same page that the casual chambray or denim shirts should have a chest pocket and be button down. I few guys mentioned a pocketless linen shirt as a possibility.

This x1000.

 

Honestly trying to get all my stuff from you guys if possible, I speak high praise when ever possible and talk about your stuff on another forum quite a bit, which has brought a few customers that I am aware of. I for sure have another friend sold on the dress collar polos when they arrive too.

Pricing wise, don't they both start the same at ~$550-599? Then customs just moves up higher in price based on fabric.

 

MTO/MTM is based on the Model 2 pattern block and adjusted accordingly. We can still adjust nearly all parts of the suit, but the shoulder, which can only be adjusted about 1 cm +/-.  Full Custom, we'll have a fresh pattern drafted and can adjust for a whole bunch of other fit issues.

 

Pricing, this special SF offer for MTO/MTM is at $549 CAD. The Custom suit program starts at $649 and go up based on cloth. The big difference is the pattern charge for the fresh pattern.

@Burzan - I think I was being unclear; the last S&M chambray I purchased had two chest pockets in a western/camp style. I'm saying I'd prefer chambray and denim casual shirting to be done up identical to their OCBD.

Ahh gotcha, and I agree.

This is not a pleasant sight my friend. But for the hell of it, Pics?

No offense but I think if I wore 2 pockets I'd get made fun of by my lady
