With your MTM shirts, can I request unfused linings on collars, plackets, and cuffs? I like the styling and selection of fabrics.
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.
They do have fabric swatches in the store. (at least I've seen them at Mississauga location)
I'm assuming that you're asking not what the physical difference is (which you can see) but the stylistic difference, and why someone would have a preference for one over the other. The shirt style collar is somewhat dressier and should look less floppy than the ribbed. Also, watch this video from Sven Raphael Schneider:
Why don't you measure the shirts you own and compare them to the dimensions provided on S&M's site? This is what I did when ordering customer. I basically measured every shirt I owned, thought about which fit best in each aspect (neck, chest, waist, etc) and took it from there.
