    You make the chest bigger by letting out fabric from the back. At least that's my understanding.

    yea hard to say but Most people here prefer jackets that cover the bum. Despos says the jacket length is your height in inches divided by 2 and subtracted by 4. I'm 5'6 1/2 so its about 66 inches. 66 / 2 = 33 -4 = 29 inch jacket.

    A 29" would probably be correct if you went MTM. I'm 5'8" and prefer 29 - 29.25" jackets. Of course proportions will SKU that statement, its a guideline.

    Didn't end up liking the shine on the RTW chsmbrays so sent them back. Hoping some of the other ones from the custom fabrics will be coming to RTW. Kept the the summer oxford which felt like a great weight and unstructured collar. Fabric felt more like a thin pinpoint oxford rather than a thin casual brushed oxford (which is what I envisioned it would be like). For now, forever patiently waiting for denim shirts to drop haha

    Side note, hoping to see a pressed chino line in the future.

    Does the bundle price only apply to items that aren't currently on sale? I put two sport coats in my shopping cart but no discount was applied. Forgive me - this has probably already been asked.

    Thanks!

    Unfortunately not I don't think. I tried this previously as well.

    Ready to wear (also OTR off the rack) as opposed to MTM (made to measure) and bespoke

    New khakis should be here in about 10 days. They border on casual and business appropriate. Fabric was developed ourselves. A 2 ply 40s Egyptian yarn. Sanded and washed. Updated the cut, fit and construction over our last round and finished them off with horn buttons.

    Once we get feedback on the updated fit we're probably going to start rolling out more casual and business casual trousers.

    Awesome, would these new cloths happen to be an option for custom trousers? I actually emailed about it today as the old chino cut might not be enough thigh room. Will wait to check them out though.

    The thigh has been modified slightly to give more room for comfort. Both fits are available.

    These may become available in custom.

    When do those "madras chambray" shirts look to drop?

    Sounds very promising, looking forward to checking them out.

    This and the denim shirts are my most anticipated drops right now.
