Can anyone who has the dark brown birdseye suit comment on it?

Abstaining because the poll is flawed. Slim box pleat and side pleats shouldn't even be options.

As ive stated before, I much prefer clean back, but I could maybe live with a box pleat on a true oxford shirt only...and in the contemporary fit. Box pleat on a slim is pointless, as is a 'slim box pleat', which would look off.

The rest of the casual shirt options with button collar should absolutely have clean back. Cleaner look, less fabric and more versatile.

Edit: If I could save ~$100

 

Yes. $1095 CAD for 2 piece. +$150 CAD for Full Canvas.

 

I asked Minnis for bulk price on the cloth and it's still pretty costly. We would have to be about $275 CAD/pair. If there is enough interest in them, we could run them.

Naw. If I'm spending this much for fabric I would go custom for an extra $50 instead.Thanks.

That's pretty much what we told Minnis as well. Doesn't make sense.

At some point, will you allow CMT?

We can do it now. Problem is getting the cloth to the factory in China. That can be costly. We can CMT for $400 CAD/suit

I almost asked this earlier today! But then decided I ask too many questions in this thread...

Box pleat.

post #5126 of 6232
In the midst of all the pleat bleating, I am curious about the timeline of the addition of the MTM suiting functionality to the website. I know it was mentioned a few months ago that it was in the works. Is this going to be part of the new website?

Here's something I've been thinking about for next season. How about the idea of:

 

1. A higher end chino, one that is unhemmed, with split back with taped seams...basically a chino version of your dress pant that would be meant to be worn pressed with a crease. How much would such an item cost to produce?

 

2. Then offer separate unstructured chino jackets (LBM 1911 style) in the same colors that could be worn as casual odd jackets, or paired with the trousers for a cotton suit. I'm thinking colors such as khaki, navy, brown, stone, olive and maybe a brighter or lighter blue. 

 

Am I crazy?
