Looks great! Can't remember if it's been said before in this thread, but how was this MTM'd? Did you send actual measurements or did you try on their OTR/RTW suit in your closest size and ask S&M for x, y, z changes in the measurements (à la Kent Wang)?

 

Also, jacket only? I'd be curious to see S&M's MTM trousers.

They made adjustments based on pictures of me in a Model 2 Contemporary. No pants here as I already owned pants in that fabric, RTW. Next commission will include pants.

Got it, thanks!

I have to put an order in for Fall ties this week.

 

Are you guys still strongly interested in 2 colour, colour block ties?

 

Any other suggestions are welcome. Reminder, we can't do printed ties at the moment and we can't do grenadine just yet.

 

Suggestions for designs, colours would be great.

I'd love a dry looking (i.e. not at all shiny) navy and dark green block stripe.

3.5" width would be a nice happy medium for most I'm sure.

+1 also on all points. I'd also like some texture to the weave.

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

 

 

 

At a 39-40 waist with a slightly fuller cut than your current measurements show, I'd like 13-14 inches rise (measured from crotch seam to top of waistband). I have an unusually long torso and short legs. I'm also 53 years old and heavier than your targeted customer base so I'm not holding my breath :D

I've been on the lookout for a navy and gray color block tie.  Similar to the Drake's shades below:

I'll put a shout out for 3 1/4

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

The red/blue camber check on your custom shows as 60/40 cotton/linen. Are there 2 different red/blue cambers?

Another vote for 3.5" ties with texture, dry hands, and/or large block stripes

post #4859 of 6172
Good block stripe color combinations (I think):
Burgundy/navy
Mid-gray/forest green
Navy/sky blue
Dark blue/moss green

Probably something brighter? But I'm no good with bright ties. I don't believe in them. Religious reasons.

You sir are more correct than I am. I just checked with my stock/production manager and he confirmed it's 60/40 cotton linen.

 

Have to change that on the OTR shirt. Thanks!
