Can anyone comment on the fabric and hand-feel of the wool cashmere sportcoats? As opposed to say the wool-cashmere at Suitsupply or J.Crew or the likes. Thanks!!

Does anyone have experience with the leather belt offerings? Is the brown and actual brown or would it work with color 8 (burgundy)?

It's actually brown.

anyone ever buy a slim fitting OCBD just to use as an undershirt for the collar? Im trying to integrate the v-neck sweater with a collar undershirt, but find most of the off the rack OCBDs too baggy to fit well underneath a v-neck sweater. I think a slim/snug fitting OCBD would look ridiculous solo, but would be helpful just for the collar.

I personally wouldn't buy something for such a specific use, as I'd want to wear it without a sweater as well. I don't really see how a well fitting OCBD wouldn't work both with and without a sweater. Is the sweater particularly tight? I wear sweaters that are somewhat fitted and have not experienced this problem with my OCBDs, most of which are Brooks Brothers Extra Slim fit. Perhaps that fit is too slim for you. I also wear Spier & Mackay shirts in Contemporary, but I don't know that I've worn them under a sweater yet (and I have no S&M OBCDs...yet).

 

Perhaps you can just find the cheapest OCBD possible that still has a collar you like and have it slimmed down for $15. Or change your tucking technique. Kamakura sells OCBDs that are fairly long (the NY slim fits certainly are) and would stay tucked in better than a more casual one.

Sounds like you need a dickey.

I wear all my SM shirts under my sweaters when the weather calls for it. No problems here

Boooo!

im just gonna grab some well fitting OCBDs for casual wear. I think they would like good tucked in too. just need to get my fit dialed in first. S&M is out of control with its price/quality ratio.

We do in Custom. If it's a bib front or pleated front, it's +$25 CAD.

Any type. Turndown, Wingtip, Band. We've done it all.

Now we're talking!

 

@spiermackay, how should I go about ordering a wing collar and bib front? It isn't available on your custom options on the website. Maybe note it in the order notes?
