The New Polos are up. Pics are temporary, but colours are pretty accurate. We are releasing them on SF first.

Fit is pretty much the same as the previous polos. Shrinkage is controlled to less than 3%. Did a wash test with the whites in hot water and hot dryer. If you don't want any shrinkage, cool water/hang to dry and shrinkage is close to zero.

 

The fabric on these is pretty incredible. Better than we were expecting. The body and drape are unlike any polo we've seen or felt before.

 

Evaluated the fit on my previous ones in large the other day and deciding to size down to medium to try. I noticed the grey one I had shrunk a bunch from the original size compared to the other colors (maybe it hit the dryer). 

 

Just bought 4 with dress collars!

Why do you prefer the shirt collar over the rib?

I have a lot of ribbed collar polos already from Brooks Brothers, Bonobos as well as the old SM ones so I wanted to give something different a try. I wear polos frequently to my business casual job so dress collar will clean up the look a little.

I know our shoulders are not as built up as those brands, and thus not as forgiving. A good tailor will be able to tidy that up quite easily though. Do you know your chest and waist body measurements? I can advise if the slim will work based on those two measurements.

37 inch chest, 31 inch waist. Relatively big 37 inch hips. Think the slim would have less problems with the wrinkles/excess fabric in the sleeves and back? The contemporary fit also flares a bit at the chest on me. Hard to see in the side on picture I posted, but it doesn't fit as flush against my skin as my other shirts. Not sure if this is also a sizing issue.

Been on the fence for awhile regarding an order for a set of dress shirts. I'm a US customer so I'd prefer not to undergo the hassle of return shipping. I measure a 44" chest (wear a 42R suit) and have a 33" waist. My shoulders are about 18.5" bone to bone and my neck measures 15.5". I was considering a contemporary fit...but it appears that this may cause some awkward pulling in the chest area. Am I limited to MTM or is it possible to get by with an OTR fit? Thank you!

Just received this medium gray size 38 contemporary suit. Not very confident in the fit, but would love to get others opinions. The side on view you can see some strange behavior in the sleeves.

I think you're too hard on yourself. I give this an 8/10. With a bit of work youll get it to an 8.5. As good as youll probably get without going custom. I'd be really happy.

@MrVenneri I wear a 40R contemporary in Spier and pretty much all other brands' suiting, I also go w/ the 15.5 contemporary fit shirting and it's an excellent fit - my chest is probably ~41".  I am pretty sure you're gonna have some pulling at the buttons with OTR 15.5.

Few days late but I'd be interested in t shirts as long as the length isn't too short. I have yet to find t shirts at a decent price that are long enough on a 6'4 frame

Thank you so much for your personal experience fitting advice...It looks like I'll have to go custom I suppose. Next time I'm in Toronto I'll drop by.

two questions:

1. how's the rise on the chinos? i hate when shirts come untucked b/c chinos sit way too low.

2. how are the oxfords and what size/style should i go with? my measurements are 16.5x35 and i am athletic (weight lifter) but certainly not slim. to give you an idea, the size L in Uniqlo slim fit is way too tight, but their XL is slightly too baggy. LE tailored fit is way too baggy.

thanks!

Will the downtown store be open soon? If I buy some polos online now, can I swap them at the Toronto St location if the fit is off? Cheers.

 

PS: Do you guys have fabric swatches in store for your custom shirts? As mentioned previously by some of us, it's hard to tell from the online photos how wide or narrow the stripes are on the striped fabrics.
