post #5206 of 6228
Quick thought on the box pleat thing from a few days back.

You could reduce the size of the pleat and that could possibly be a good compromise. I noticed today that your pleat is about 1/2" folded under on each side. In contrast my J Crew oxfords are roughly half that size at 1/4" folded under, this leads them to be more trim fitting in the back as the shirt doesn't flare open as much but visually changes very little. Just noticed so figured I would share.

Also, regarding the suit jackets. Would you consider a natural shoulder?

I'd be interested in natural shoulders as well and is the only thing holding me back from buying.

Can you give me an example? Our shoulders are already quite soft. Or are you speaking of an unpadded shoulder?

That's no shoulder pad. All our sportcoats are unpadded.

 

I'm familiar with that exact jacket as a customer actually brought it in for tailoring. Beautiful fabric.

Can you tell me what shade of gray this is?  Where does it rank on the pale, medium, charcoal scale?

 

Could I please get an answer to this?  I'm looking for something on the lighter side of medium gray

In regards to suit jackets, any of the La Spalla, Sienna or Hartford fits as examples.

It's exactly that. The lighter side of a medium gray.

I see. I thought you said you were going to move the first few samples to the store this week. I had hoped to view them in person before purchasing. I guess I'll just take a plunge. I was 38r in your first model of jackets, the 3 button, roll 2 ones. Which is closest now, slim or contemporary? Thank you

We had hoped to, but we had so much interest from other customers calling the Mississauga shop asking the same. Not to worry, we have complete separate size sets and stock for the DT location that is separate from the Mississauga Location/website. If needed, we can tag one and set it aside for you before it even gets there. Essentially putting that jacket on hold.

 

Closest fit to the older Model 1 Jackets would be the contemporary.
