Sometimes. Not always.

Specs for a 48 Contemporary Would be:

 

Chest: 50"

Waist: 45.3"

Shoulder: 19.8"

Sleeve: 26.75

Length: 31.5

 

 

They are there now. But really should be tried on. We only cut approx. 100 pcs total in the contemporary as a trail. The factory botched the cut on the thigh. They are a full 1/2" smaller than what they are supposed to be. This is why they are not online.


At that sizing I'll probably pull the trigger on a sport coat. If your pants had a longer rise I'd be all over them already.

What is the fabric on the red &a blue camber check? Looks like a madras but isn't indicated as such.

What rise would you be looking for on the trousers? What size?

It's 100% Cotton with a loose slub weave. Good warm weather shirt.

I know this is a whole bunch of extra work, but maybe it's possible and could turn out a great trouser value for the consumer.

A few months prior to the given season. List 10-15 fabrics you'd consider buying, post nice pics, and open a pre order.

1 slim or contemporary stock cuts for x price
2 MTO version of your cuts, list what can be changed, details and or any measurements we can alter.

I know MTM vs MTO have their limitations.

It would spell it out for the consumer in 1 post or webpage, and prevent a bunch of "I wish this I wish that".

I really like how Ehaberdasher does his Bella Spalla preorders. I think you could do the same with jackets and trousers.

But what do I know. Just wishing

Any word on the next round of OCBD? Fall solid colors perhaps?

+1. My Bella Spalla MTO is on its way to me.

The key is to do it far enough in advance of the season so that the manufacturing delay doesn't render the product out of season.

Also, this encourages people to consider your incoming fabrics early. If I know you've got a great charcoal flannel coming in for winter, I'm less likely to buy the charcoal flannel I see on sale at another place now....

Hi, Considering buying a suit from you guys. I typicaly wear 38R in Napoli and Havana cuts. The havana typically has to have the button slightly moved as it is mildly tight in the chest, but otherwise fits very well. 38R is not available in either the slim or contemporary fit. 40R is available in both fits, however. As for pants, I can fit into the 32 from suitsupply but would honestly prefer a very small amount of more room in the seat and thighs. Trying to decide which would be better, 40 slim or contemporary. I guess my main concern is would the chest fit and would he butt/hips/thighs fit. any thoughts?

We're already on this. Trying to put together an ongoing MTO program online as well.

Go with the 40R Slim. Ask for a trouser swap to either a 32 Contemporary or 33 Slim trouser. I'm not 100% of what we have in stock at the moment at the time of writing this.

Are more shirts coming in? OTR? I;m in need of more button downs as I've been working out. The oxford's are awesome but too heavy for this time of year.

It looks like you are doing a great job getting the CS issues resolved. I ordered a suit about 2am Tuesday, and it was delivered to the states on Thursday.
