I'm a huge fan of patch pockets, but I gotta admit, patch pockets on a DB suit is a little bit off in my eyes. The fabric isn't particularly casual, and DB suits always strike me as a bit more formal than SB, so the patch pockets are a little incongruous to me.

Also, it looks like you might need some sleeve rotation on the right sleeve.

What was the process of your order (in person measurements, trial jacket, etc)?



They are carrying Fresco II I think. I know I'm planning on getting a navy jacket in fresco (despite the very good argument against fresco as an odd jacket fabric). Something darker than 0520. Believe it or not, for all the blue jackets I have, I don't have a single one in proper navy. That'll be my third commission though. I got the tobacco suit when it was on sale for a ridiculously low price, and the fit was decent. One of the shoulders needed to be adjusted (for a drop and then the general angle of the sleevehead), the waist taken in and the hips taken out a little bit. Waiting on a camel flannel jacket now to see how well they manage to improve the fit based on pictures. After that, I'm ordering a gray PoW suit, also from the bargain fabrics. If they nail the fit, then I'll be ordering the fresco.

You got pics of any of the commisions?

I really don't see nothing wrong with a fresco odd jacket. I'll give it a spin.

I am not satisfied with any of my navy jackets.

Rick, we're you ever able to capture (and post) better photographs of the Fresco II book?

I'll be in Toronto come September but that's a bit too far away for my liking; perhaps some good photos will do so I can get an order going in the meantime. Is 0520 available for you to source? I didn't see it in those initial low quality snaps.

Rick,

 

With your MTM things are based on the Model 2 as a starting point. Do you carry the MTM sizing up beyond 46? Based on your M2 measurements for a 46 I would need a 47/47L or possibly a 48/48L Contemporary as I need a 19.75 to 20 shoulder and a 49-49.5 chest depending on cut. I also want a longer rise and fuller cut than the contemporary trousers have, hence my never ordering anything tailored from you guys.

What are the MTM options for suits from the new factory? Excited to try it.

The email newsletter say $15 off per shirt in 4+ bundle but the site is still only showing $9 at checkout.

Another sale question... the 4/shirt deal -- is that $15 off the regular price or the bundle price?

Thanks!

I just reset and tested the bundle. Should work now.

Off the regular price. Normally it's $9 off/shirt.

Anyone have suggestions for a "Summer" equivalent of OCBD?

 

I really like the Madras but want solid or simple stripes.

I haven't touched the new linen/cotton but normally don't like the feel of the linen.

All OCBD's are back in stock. Reloaded on the contemporary that was running low.

Just received 4 OTR shirts for casual wear in my size: 2 linens, 1 OCBD, 1 Madras

 

I have to say, of the four, I was most impressed by the Madras, it's an absolutely fantastic fabric with such a nice feel to it. The other shirts fit very well too and I'm sure I'll get some good use out of them as well, but just wanted to say how awesome the Madras is.

 

Rick, with that being said, any chance you're going to restock the Madras OTR or not until next summer? I also see a bunch of new casual pattern shirts, some with button down collars, some not, have been added to the site recently, do any of these use fabric similar to the Madras?

 

Thanks

No more madras this season. It's a very particular fabric and only a handful of makers in south India actual produce the authentic stuff. We get ours direct from the source. No other fabrics are like the madras. That said the Lewiston check shirts are an amazing alternative. 100% Egyptian Cotton, but a very low density weave. Very cool wearing.

I had them photographed. I have to get them loaded up on a photo sharing site. I'm going to try to get around to that within the next couple of days

We can carry the MTM up to a 56 with the current block. Custom trousers are drafted on the customers body measurements and eased out based on fit preference. Similar to how we do the custom shirts.

Pretty much unlimited. There are a few exceptions, but they are pretty minimal and I can't recall them exactly off the top of my head.

Everything we offer OTR for the most part plus about 700 more from Filarte, Guabello and Huddersfield. I'll try to get the Huddersfield up ASAP.
