post #4171 of 6167

I wore my light blue linen today...with a tie. :uhoh:  The collar roll looks great with a tie IMO.  I imagine it was made to be worn untucked, but I wish it was a bit longer in the body.  The collar was still a bit wonky when I took my tie off.  Will wash and report back.

Just placed my order for a couple suits after seeing that email. Still waiting on my MTM shirt order as well, how long did that usually take for everyone else?

My last MTM shirt took about 4~5 weeks.

What's the order number on the shirts?

I've been to the downtown store today. Congratulations, it looks great and location is superb. I often park in Toronto St when I'm downtown smile.gif. There was also a menswear shop on the same place before S&M, wasn't it?

Anyways, I was inquiring about your MTM sport coats, and looking at Portofino fabrics. And of course, forgot to ask...
How "unstructured" can you go? What I mean by that, how soft of canvasing and interlining can you use for this type of fabric?

Stagioni Menswear was here before us for 14 years, and before him was the legendary Lou Myles. So It's been good to menswear :)

 

We can do a fully unstructured if you like, meaning no canvas at all. Or we can use a softer, more pliable chest piece, that still has a little structure. The Portofino fabrics are beautiful. I'm planning on making one up for myself soon.

OK, so what kind of configuration are you thinking about for Portofino for your self? Unstructured? Little structured?

I would do a soft structure. No shoulder pad. 3 Roll 2.5, 3 3/4" Notch Lapel, with an inner curve. Patch Pockets. 1/4 butterfly lined.

I'm starting to think that this mid-brown sport coat would make a great summer piece, after a navy blazer.

I also need some new trousers. I'm trying to figure out which S&M trousers would pair best with the mid-brown herringbone. Anyone have any thoughts?

I have two nearly identical brown SCs in my closet, the only difference between them being the buttons. Brown is a nearly essential part of my rotation although if it were me I'd go for a darker shade.

I slapped down the credit card for this sport coat yesterday and can't wait for it to arrive. I'm planning to wear it as more of a casual Friday or weekend piece with chinos or denim. This will be my first S&M purchase.

So what is everyone's opinion on the model 2 shoulders? Are they unstructured/unpadded like a susu Havana, or lsomething less casual?

Hey Rick,

I made an MTM suit order last Friday with the SF offer fabrics and wanted to know if I could change the lining from full to butterfly/partial on the jacket?

Thanks

I have this sportcoat. It is an amazing summer piece. I like that it is not too light in color, so you don't end up in a northern lights hole.

Regarding S&M trousers to pair it with, I like it with the "gray mini herringbone" and the "blue self check". I have worn it with both and have been happy with the results.

Not enough pics in this thread! Also where are the full canvass options on the website?

Rick, wouldn't Dion (a Canadian tie company) be a good source for grenadines for your shop?
