The biggest deciding factor in my case was the jacket length. Check the measurements out and see if they work for you. IIRC, the slim was 1/2" shorter than the already short contemporary.

I'm in TO over the upcoming weekend and in need of a suit! Do you do seprates in store? I'm a size 40 in many jackets but usually more of a 36 in trousers to accommodate my 27" thighs!

I should mention I'm talking about this fancy new downtown store of yours... is it open 7 days a week now?

Full Suit, 2 Piece, Half Canvas: $895 CAD (approx. $715 USD at current exchange)

Jacket $695 CAD (approx. $555 USD)

Trouser: $325 CAD (approx. $260 USD)

 

Again, the fit is based on the Model 2 (both slim and contemporary), You would advise the necessary adjustments off that fit.

 

The Customization is pretty open, but to simplify, I'll put up a fairly extensive list of common options.

 

Ignore these phone pics, I'll get proper colour corrected pics up in a day or so.

They have the same feel as the regular fresco. They are not particularly shiny.

Yes, we can do trouser swaps. As long as the trouser is available.

 

Shop is open 7 days a week Downtown.

Could you guys perhaps give me some pointers on how to select a madras shirt color combination? I've always wanted to pick one or two up but have a hard time imagining how the short would look.

The majority of my nicer collared shirts/dress shirts are blue hues with one or two white pieces. I enjoy wearing shades of navy, turquoise, grey and purples. Deep navy and marine blue dress pants, navy and army green chinos. On my list to pick up are standard and very light chinos for summer.

Obviously I'm leaning towards a madras shirt that features blue like the orange/teal or red/green. The navy/white sounds like it would work but the shirt looks more orange/red/grey from the pics.

Any help would be really appreciated.

I have the red/green as it was offered last year, I like to wear it with my Epaulet desert colored chinos or grey chinos but also wear it with navy and stone chinos or shorts. I also like wearing pretty much all my madras with jeans.

What is the color of the last one you posted? I think that would work as well.

Also- nice loafers in the last pic. Thanks for your reply.

The pants in the last pic are Bonobos light grey chinos, madras is the navy/green from last year. http://www.spierandmackay.com/product_information/3360_navy__green_classic_madras_check___contemporary_fit

 

Thanks on the loafers, Alden whiskey and one of my fav pairs in my collection.

That's exactly how I am wearing mine today, with some J Crew chambray trousers. They fit great, enough length for tucking without them pulling out during the day. Forgive the blurry pic, just snapped it quick this morning and didn't notice it was out of focus a bit until I went to post it.

Does anyone have the light gray dress trousers? Are they a true light gray or more of a mid gray as they appear in the site? Thanks.

Hi All,

Recently bought 2 suits from SM and love the fit. Unfortunately, one of the suits have a white mark, almost a gummy/gooey texture. Not sure what it is but it won't come off. Is this something a dry cleaner can fix?

Send it back for an exchange. I would like to see what that is. First glance looks like basting stitches poking through. But those wouldn't beas you describe.
