I don't have any. I wear the same all the time and really enjoy it. I'm not sure if any of the members here purchased any of them.

There is a 1" turn in the cuff. It can probably be lengthened to a 33, but it will most likely leave a seam line.

Sleeves are now 35" on the 15.5, need to get that size chart updated.

From the website, the classic khaki and British khaki look quite similar. How different are they under natural light?

 

The British Khaki is a couple of shades darker. A bit warmer and redder undertone.

We don't cut 14.5 contemporary any longer. All the 14.5 are now slim only unfortunately.

Hey Rick,

 

I see from the size chart that the actual waist sizes on the khakis appear to be +2".

 

The size for 31 is not listed on the chart, but can I presume that the garment has a 33" waist?

Yes sir. That's correct.

Rick, is the British khaki appreciably different than it was in the original? Thanks!

It is different, yes and it is noticeable. It's certainly within the same family. It's a touch lighter and not a muddy looking if that makes sense.

Thanks Rick. I liked the muddied of the last ones but I'm looking forward to getting the new ones.

I ordered a few polos which did not fit correctly and need to be returned.  According to the S&P website, "To be eligible for the credit, all returns from the USA must be via United States Postal Service Regular Ground Service.".  So, I packaged the polos in the original box and took them to the post office.  The post office stated that Ground Service to Canada is not available.  Delivery to international destinations is via air only.  The cost to ship back is $25.  The package weighs about 3 lbs.

 

Is there a better way to return the shirts?  Can I use an alternate delivery method and still receive credit?  Has anyone else shipped from the U.S. to Canada, and if so, what method did you use?

That's strange. You can send it back by whatever method you feel is best. We'll still credit back to you the $15 CAD in store credit. That said, on international returns, the customer has to be clear with all customs paperwork and is responsible for the package and goods. We will not cover return costs like brokerage or custom charges. USPS ground is usually pretty straight forward and only restrictions on ground was with weight restrictions, like a suit for example was beyond their regular ground service. Surprised to hear they are saying the same for polos now.

 

Can anyone else from the USA chime in on this?

Hey Rick,

Will the contemporary fit chinos be available in store this weekend as well?

@spiermackay I just received the three spread collar cotton/linen shirts darted a total of two inches.  The shirt seems to be cut a little larger than normal, i'm guessing due to the fabric.  I normally wash the shirts cold and hang dry it.  These shirts definitely need to shrink a little.  How would you recommend washing/drying them?

Wash warm first and hang dry as you normally would. The warm water will shrink them a bit more than a cold wash. Give two good washes first and let me know.

Broke out the light blue linen this morning. Has become a staple in my shirt rotation since getting it.

Gentlemen, we have a fairly big announcement to make......at least for us!

 

Some of you may know that we were in talks to transition to a new suit factory that will take over all our OTR and MTM production. The deal is done and finalized and we made the transition on July 1st. The big deal is that that factory that we moved to is a JV with Zegna! Zegna is a 50% partner since 2003. They wanted better access to the Domestic Chinese market and return they provided the "know how" and skill of high end suit making. The factory is greatly considered to be the #1 top quality suit producer in the country.

 

We feel extremely lucky to have had everything line up for us to make this happen. The quality of the finished product is absolutely outstanding. The drape and balance of the jackets is beautiful and the overall construction is softened from what we were previously producing. The best part is, the price will remain the same!

 

The MTM division was set up specifically by Zegna to cater to the Luxury end of the Domestic market. They only work with a handful of companies in Europe and we will be the first company to work with them for MTM in North America.

 

All MTM orders from June 26th onward will be produced by our new factory. This further solidifies our commitment to outstanding quality and we hope creates even greater value for our customers.

Congratulations! Please keep us updated on how this will effect the final products in terms of quality, design, and fabrics.

 

Also, I will post a photo of the navy Alloway short sleeve next time I wear it.

Congratulations.  This is wonderful news.  It seems like MTM suiting is mostly handled through email and PM.  Are there plans to make the process more like ordering a custom shirt on your website?
