Thanks very much.
Not sure if Ben is ordering stock. We'll have to wait to see if he chimes in.
Great news. Since that bella spalla coat in 39R was too big for me in a couple of places that I haven't had success altering on other garments in the past, i ordered the 38R for consideration (different fabric). My tailor indicated that he could beg, borrow, and steal a maximum of 1/2 inch in the waist which is about all I need. The color wasn't really what I was looking for, so I sent it back and ordered one from the MTO fabrics. I meant to email to see if there would possibly be a little more material in the seams on the MTOs. I was a little worried that if production variation ended up with at 38R that was a little smaller, I'd be out of luck. I forgot about sending the email and ordered anyway. Very glad to hear that there will be a bit more to work with there.
I was also wondering if Ben's making any left over fabric into coats to put up on the site? I'd be interested to see how some of the other fabrics come out.
Received my first eHaberdasher purchase just before the holidays and finally got a chance to actually put it on and check the fit. It's a touch tight through the gut, but I think that's more of a personal post-holiday-without-working-out problem than an issue with the jacket -- I'm pretty sure a size up (from 39/40R to 41/42R) would be too much. Any thoughts? Should I be worried about the tightness now while I can still return it?
