Minnis Fresco:
Suit MTO - 2 Piece, Half Canvas - $895 CAD (Approx $715 USD).
Jacket MTO, Half-Canvas - $695 CAD (Approx $560 USD).
MTO Trouser $269 CAD (approx. $215 USD). MTM Trouser $349 CAD (approx. $279 USD)

MTO is based on the fit block of the Model 2. You can advise us of what changes/adjustments are required. We can slope/square shoulders, rotate sleeves. We can only increase/decrease shoulder width by 1 cm total. Further tailoring/Alterations are not included in MTO.

It is preferred that you try or have tried a Model 2 jacket and advise adjustments from there. If possible, send pics of wearing a model 2 from the front, back and side along with your order.
It is possible to work strictly off measurements, but again, we cannot offer returns/tailoring or alterations on MTO items.

PM me to place orders for the time being.

As always, if you have any questions, I'm here to help.

Regards,
Rick

That is not much of a shoulder modification! I guess if you can modify everything else it's easy enough to work around though.

More then that, then you'll be in MTM. The armhole, chest cross, back cross have to be modified, which affects the sleeve,etc. A lot more work. That is where the difference lies really.

So to be clear you can modify everything but just the shoulder is limited? Or only the shoulder can be modified in MTO?

I really need to order a Model 2 jacket so I can be a part of these MTMs!

Rick, do you have these swatches in the downtown store? Can I swing by, try jacket, pants, make order?

Same great cloth. Same C3-K collar.

Are these new OCBDs more versatile in the sense that they work better casually and you can still wear them in a business casual environment? Basically when would someone wear this one and when would someone wear the non-casual model? Also, any particular reason why the length was only shortened on the contemporary and not the slim fit?

They do have the swatches in the downtown store. I was there on Monday and saw them.

You can modify the chest, waist, hip, sleeve length, body length, sleeve width, lapel width, shoulder style, shoulder slope/square, square back and any other alteration you can normally do on an OTR suit. Plus you can tinker with pocket style, vents, chest pocket style, button stance, functioning cuffs, button front (1 button, 2 button, 3 roll 2, 3 roll 2.5, etc), lining preference (no lining, 1/4 lining, 1/2 lining). Also you can request canvassing style. Half as default, Full +$150 CAD, fully unstructured (for casuals and weighty fabrics), soft canvassing is a default or more structured.

Everything is in the shop. You can try everything there and get fitted.

MTO can you do vests? If so, double breasted?  Also, if so, what would the cost be? @spiermackay 

post #4690 of 6504
I have seen a striking Guabello grey POW double breasted waistcoat in store at one time.

We can do double breasted vests. They start at $150 for our stock fabrics which were posted a few months back. I'm trying to get a link on our site to get everything in one place. I should hopefully have that by early next week.

The new casual ocbd has no interlining. Its a softer more relaxed construction. The contemporary was shortened by 1" to better wear untucked. The slim was already 1" shorter than the contemporary.

@spiermackay Rick,

 

Thanks for taking the time to post accurate photos. Do you know if these Fresco swatches correspond to the older books that a lot of people on this forum are familiar with? Did the index numbers just change or are they completely different suitings and new colours?

We have the North American Books. Most people look at the website and pull the numbers from there, which are the numbers from the European books. From what I was told, the colours are pretty much the same. Not sure why they did that. That said, you can order pretty much anything from the Huddersfield site as well.

Thanks Rick.

 

Based on weight, composition and saturation, I'm guessing:

 

104322 = 0520

104347 = 0516

104348 = 0517
