I think Rick only does MTM suiting in store IIRC.

I guess this gives me another good reason to visit Toronto.

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

Thank you @Darkside!  I'd love a picture of the Alloway.  Any information about the sizing of your shirt would be helpful too.  I'm in Boston too and the weather for short sleeve shirts is finally here.

What An Acute Style is referring to is a one-off thing that S&M did for StyleForum members only. They offered some odds and ends fabrics to be made up MTM via email for dirt cheap. (You can see what I am referring to back on post #3435).

 

I had them make two pair of trousers basically mimicking the Suitsupply Brentwood (high rise, single pleat, side tabs no loops, 2" cuff) and in addition, a double breasted suit. They all turned out amazing. Just incredible to get MTM for those prices.

 

Rick could say if that deal is still being honored or if any of the fabrics are still left. I for one would be curious if it was still going on, and if so, would the new factory be doing the production?

Will do. Our suits were already pretty great. This will take them to the next level.

We may eventually try something similar to how we handle MTM shirting. We've heard too many horror stories of online MTM where folks don't accurately take body measurements and the suit ends up useless. We would adopt more of a try and adjust model, where you would order an OTR suit and advise of the necessary adjustments. This way you will have a good idea of what to expect. No ridiculously ill fitting surprises.

 

At the moment, we are running it this way via email and PM. Keeping it small to iron out any bugs.

We do still have some fabrics in stock. The stock has already been moved and ready to go. By next week we will add the Huddersfield line up to this.

Do you have any pictures of fabrics available for custom suiting in what you would consider a mid-range level?

Good to hear you are still doing the SF MTM deal. What exactly is/was the Huddersfield line up?

 

Maybe when it is lined out what fabrics are still available/being added, you can post pics of what fabrics can be used for this program like you did last time?

Cool.  I know that you've posted a few pics of MTM suits and sport coats.  I think I speak for everyone when I say I would love to see more.  Especially, stuff like double breasted or 3/2 roll jackets.

You definitely speak for me. This MTM upgrade is excellent news. Can't wait to get up to Toronto and get measured.

I'll see what I can get up. Most folk are not adventurous enough to try anything outside a cookie cutter suit.

I'm going in to have a solid navy 3/2 in one of the Huddersfields made up next week. I'm going with as much hand stitching as the factory can do (right now I know it's $5/button hole - not sure about other stuff). I'll be sure to post up pics when it's done!

I have a 3r2 coming my way from S&M. I'll post pictures when I get it

Hey Rick, another quick question. I'm hoping to buy a new suit in the next couple weeks, was probably going to grab an OTR from the downtown store. I thought I heard you mention that there is a tailor that works in the store? So would I be able to get some alterations done in store on the OTR if I come into the downtown location (hemmed, take the waist in)??

 

Thanks

Need to post pics please.  On a hanger is fine.
