It's been a challenge to get good flannel that meets our pricepoint in the quantities we can handle.

We have denim under production in 3 washes. 2 collar styles. BD being one of them.

Next week we are getting the wash samples for colour approval.

Rick, I went to the store today and picked up this beauty:

http://www.spierandmackay.com/product_information/5205_blue__red_check___woolcashmere___contemporary_fit

The cloth is wonderful, warm and soft, a very nice three season jacket. I'll be officially picking it up next week after the sleeves are adjusted. But it looks like your fabric game went up big time. I also looked at the mid grey suit and it was also terrific. (Almost identical to one I already have, though so I passed...).

Lastly, I saw the preview jacket for the October batch from the new factory. The silhouette is stunning and construction/fabric felt great as well.

I can't wait for the new flannel trousers either.

The only complaint I have is the loud shirt you had on. I had to look away. tongue.gif

Haha, my tastes are more colourful than most. I leave the CBD to those who have to work in offices. :)

Can you explain the difference in the contemporary and slim fit sportcoat? As I look at measurements they appear the same for both in size 38 regular.

I didn't get to meet Rick today but I did have the privilege of chatting with Michael for about an hour as I killed some time before a flight - what a fantastic guy. He was really open to my feedback, interested in my questions, and genuinely excited for the growth of S&M.

I must say, there was substantially more to the warehouse store than I ever thought there would be.

I think I got my business partner addicted.

Cheers gents!

Got my new sport coats which are really great.  Now it’s time to shorten the sleeves which will end up being way too close to the buttons.

 

Here are the options I see:

 

1) Remove the lowest button and it’s fake button hole and end up with 3 buttons only.

 

2) Remove the lowest button and it’s fake button hole and add that button above the highest button (with no fake button hole for this button only)

 

3) Same as #2 but remove all fake button holes for all buttons.

 

4) Same as #2 but restitch a fake button hole for the moved button.

 

 

Number 4 seems like the preferred option but is this doable? Rick what do you recommend?

 

How is everyone else handling this?

Thanks. Good to know.

How much is this alteration (shorten sleeves, move lowest button and remove all fake buttonholes)?

Also, as I'm buying online would it be possible to provide a sleeve length measurement and have you alter before shipping?
If that's possible what measurement should I provide? From shoulder/sleeve seam to end of sleeve?
