Doesn't look like it. But I'll let you guys know by Tuesday on the fill in cut.

 

I'm trying to add a soft pink.

Chiming in late on additional linen colours - blue+white stripe and pink+white stripe. I've seen navy linen shirts and they are an interesting idea for something to wear on a hot evening (if that navy linen+cotton material posted a while ago is available when I make my next custom shirt order I will probably get a shirt made up in it). I have decided that I also prefer a plain back instead of a box pleat. I feel no difference when wearing a plain back shirt vs box pleated, but I don't like how a box pleat sometimes pops open, it looks messy.

Any chance that linen/cotton blend trousers could be considered for production in the future?

Dang missed out on all colors. I'll grab a restock when it comes. Soft pink would be great. A lighter green or pale yellow could also work imo.

+1 for box or even side pleats. From my understanding, box pleats have little functional value whereas side pleats can act as sort of gussets to help range of motion during arm movement which would enhance the fit tremendously. I'm not particularly large, but do feel a pleat on the contemporary fit would aid in comfort as well as add an interesting, if not traditional, stylistic detail.

Without a doubt.

I had two pair of trousers and a suit made through the MTM program. The biggest selling point for me is that with the additional tailoring costs for a hem and having the waist taken in, I can have a pair of trousers done through MTM for about the same price, plus can make any style adjustments that I want.

+1 here, im interested in what the pricing may be. I'm waiting on my first MTO, then can decide how well I fit the model 2. I'll probably have to get custom pants again though.

Definitely interested. I remember you posted the fresco books a few weeks ago--have you shown us what else you have access to?
post #3986 of 6188

Any linen or linen blend pants coming soon?

post #3987 of 6188

Pink linen is definitely something I would be interested in. I myself am against box pleats on the back of my shirts, I stopped buying any shirts with box pleats a while ago. I personally don't like the look/style of it and I don't think it adds anything fit wise, if anything for myself it just makes it poof out more in the back and I prefer a slim fit. I'm currently on the fence about ordering an OCBD since they all have box pleats, I really like the concept of the OCBD but the box pleat is kind of putting me off. I'm looking forward to trying the linens though, and hopefully the madras are without box pleats as well.

Original Collar - to be replicated.

S&M version

 

In white poplin (Yes, white poplin with country jacket. I know. I know.)

 

I suppose this is the second-button-unbuttoned look that @SPIER & MACKAY was referring to.  I really like the way the collar lays with no stays when unbuttoned like this.

 

Here's the blue slub check I was going on about. Nice and airy.

I don't remember the colors that would be included but
I'll be buying a suit or two in the next month so I'd def consider it.

Did you specify the collar height and length
