post #5236 of 6230
When I go custom I've typically ordered the semi-spread with a slightly longer collar - 3.35" specifically. This tucks nicely under jacket lapels and is in line with my preferred tie and lapel width. I believe it's also the point length of my Kamakura spread collar shirts and BB button down collar length. I like to be consistent.

Edit: I meant 3.25". I believe the stock semi-spread is 3 1/8. Small difference, but hey...when going custom you can be this picky!

How long does it take to get custom shirts if measurements have already been taken previously?

I've always ordered button down and wide spread from SM. Since he increased the points from 3 inches to I think 3 1/4, it fits under the jacket perfectly.

@spiermackay I think I may need to start sizing up to 16" neck on my shirts, it looks like the next step up from 15.5 contemporary would probably be a 16 slim for me. Are the arms/armholes still as slim on those as they were a year or 2 ago? I don't have huge arms but those shirts felt like they would pop at my biceps, which was part of why I moved over to contemporary. I'm tempted to order a shirt in 16 slim and give it a try again.

@spiermackay Just curious as to whether the website redesign will also simplify of sorting custom fabric by weight.

Fantastic. I was just browsing and having a hard time deciding if I wanted "Light-Medium, "Light - Medium", or "Medium Light". Throw in "2 Ply 80s" and "40s x 2/20s" and I noped right out of there.

Currently, the weight is entered manually by text, that's why there is variation on the exact same thing. All three are the same. For the new site, we requested weight to be an actual searchable criteria.

In advance of the pre orders closing for this round of jackets are you able to share a preview of the fabrics that'll be offered in the next round?

Even less-than-perfect snapshots would be appreciated!

Will the current jackets available for pre-order be a one time deal or will there be stock going forward into fall?

Are you asking if there will be stock in the same designs? We won't be repeating the wool/cashmere this season. We have a second release of sportcoats for October. We may have a smaller release later in the season.

Any plans to offer sport coats with more structure?

It's a possibility. We haven't really thought about it just yet. Still waiting on the feedback from the current batch of Jackets. A few have been shipped out already the rest of the pre-orders will ship out on Tuesday/Wednesday this week. But it seems like most of our customers are looking for very relaxed looking sportcoats.
