    Full or half canvass? It looks great, very slim and relaxed. I'd suggest adding this (with a narrower lapel) as a stock model for those of us who don't wear any padding.

    On edit: I see it's half. The front looks very nice and soft.

    This particular one is half. We are thinking of maybe adding this as a stock. But as a limited run at first.

    I'd stick to a more normal lapel width, I'm solidly on team "wide is just as bad skinny".

    3.5 inches being an insufficient width is a style forum creation.

    In our custom program you can do whatever size lapel you want.

    The sample shown was the customers choice. If we do this OTR iw would be be proportional lapel for each size.

    Regarding the tobacco wool/linen contemporary 2 suit currently on sale; how is the button stance? Also is this a good spring/summer fabric? Thank you.

    Also, it looks like the measurements for the slim and contemporary are switched, with the slim being bigger than contemporary (for Model 2).

    It also looks like the button stance is slightly lower on the suit than the jacket

    The suit is beautiful, you can find some pics of me wearing it in this thread. I'll probably be wearing it again very soon, and looking forward to it!

    You wear it very well. Thank you for sharing those. Did you opt for the contemporary 2 or the slim 2?

    Quick fit pic of the new custom SC I received last week. Sleeves need to be let out. Might take in the sides a hair more, might not.

    They are just in washing. Should be leaving the factory by end of this week. Hopefully be here a week after that.

    Very nice, the fit around the shoulder and the sleeve pitch seem on point. One might argue the chest appears a tad tight (as the lapels seem to bow slightly instead of laying flat on the pectorals) but this might be caused by the erect posture in the picture?

    Also, are the slightly more closed quarters a personal choice or how the jacket was made?

    I usually have an issue with bowed lapels, and normally only 1 side of my chest.
    It must be a shoulder to chest relation. Happens in a lot of jackets I try OTR. S&M, Southwick, LBM, all bow on me. The chest isn't tight on this, there is some room in it.

    Quarters are more closed than my OTR S&M jacket (36R Contemp. with an opened waist by 1 - 1.5"). I'm guessing nipping the midsection a bit will open them up slightly.
    Jacket just came out this way. I do wish they were more open but I think they will be when I move the waist in a bit.


    Its my first MTM piece from S&M. So when Rick and I have some time we'll see if his tailor can tweak a few more things on it. Usually we talk things over, but I had to grab it and go as I had a flight to catch.

    It's all good! Wish I would be a Toronto local to have a fitting in person at S&M and subsequent followings. It must be easier to nail a fit this way than over email and robopose pictures.
