How much is trouser length alterations if we choose to pick-up the suit instore and can we request it be done before we pick it up?

post #5612 of 6232
I think a great set of sportcoats would've been the flannel fabrics from the recent trouser run - especially the green and the mid-blue. In my opinion, your current/past sportcoats have been a bit "stiff", "shiny", and "suity" for the relative softness of the styling.

Oh and, I agree, I'm herringboned out.

When I was recently at the warehouse location, I came across a pair of black/white houndstooth trousers that was made from a beautifully soft and textured fabric. I think the SF crew would be very happy to see more fabrics of that sort - visual interest without the self-stripe effect that fine herringbones sometimes provide.

I have a feeling that textured navy hopsack sportcoat will fly off the shelves. I'm eager to see it myself!

Good feedback. I can agree with what you're saying. We learn more as we go.

I'm a relative new-comer to S&M. Can anyone comment on the quality and sizing on older shirts?

  

Cosidering this and this as part of my next order. Currently own slim oxfords from the latest batch and love them.

I have the first shirt in your link. Quality is fine. However, this is a summer shirt only. And interestingly enough its slimmer than all my other SM shirts. I don't wear an undershirt with it.

I'd love a sportcoat in that green, though.

The Mill has 7 colour variants of this cloth available. We are thinking about picking up 5-6 colours for odd trosuers for spring/summer. These are Wool/Linen.

 

Would this be a good fabric to run? I'm partial to them. I have a pair on my desk right now that I think would be excellent. The herringbone adds a great visual texture without going overboard. They register fairly solid for a distance, but the texture really shows up close.

 

Thoughts?

As others have said, not as odd trousers. And I'm also all herringboned out! Agree wholeheartedly with the above poster who talked about softer, less formal/shiny fabrics for your SC collection. I would have loved your navy flannel windowpane suit as a SC w/ patch pockets, your olive/forest green wool trousers as a solid SC, or that same color with a chunky orange windowpane also as a SC.

I think the tan, navy and (is that last one) grey would work as either trousers, but maybe even better as sport coats. Perhaps the light blue.

 

I think part of the problem for me is that as much as I might like a pair of nicely cut and creased trousers in a fabric like this, I've decided that it's a bit too casual for my day-to-day office wear, but on the other hand, too dressy for my casual wear. It's something I would wear on Fridays to the office in the summer, though.

Good feedback. It's one of the reasons I ask these questions here.

As a side to this what odd trousers and sportcoats do you want to see for spring/summer?

I think the colors aren't bad at all if you could get something similar in a hopsack or another loose, summer weave wool. I also am partial to pure linen particularly for trousers. I think there was also some demand for a cotton casual jacket or suit.

+1 for linen trousers. Some natural linen colours (including white and cream/tan), and maybe some light blue.

I would love a wool-linen sportcoat in medium gray for spring/summer....Basically like the wool/linen in blue that you put out summer 2015.

post #5624 of 6232

Yes please to linen trousers for s/s... maybe a blend that is light but still holds its shape a bit vs 100%.

 

Cream/off white and mid-blue are a must for linen, in my opinion. Dark shades don't seem to work. A blue something like this, maybe a bit lighter.

Also, as long as we're writing up our S/S Christmas list, maybe side adjusters rather than belt loops for the linen trousers?
