    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

     I think this will be a hit - a lot of oxfords are so heavy that the placket is stiff even if they are unlined/unfused. Are there plans for other colours? I'm still itching for lavender.

    The Ultimate Toronto Thread

     That's not what I wanted to read today! I've been on a losing streak all summer (Exquisite Trimmings x2, Pediwear, Epaulet, NMWA, eBay), with 2 KW orders in progress. Even a $12 battery for my camera was "sent for further processing".

     A light lavender plain oxford is highest on my wishlist, but I doubt you'd have any trouble moving pale pink or blue. I've seen a navy/white gingham oxford around that I think would make an excellent Fall shirt.

     +1. Would love to see more plain oxford fabrics available for the MTM program too.

    Official Wedding Attire Question/Answer/Picture Thread

     What happens if it's not purple? You are getting solid advice here - those ties are frankly awful. Sorry. I could swear one of the affiliates stocked a purple and white shepherd's check, but I can't find it now. Vanda has one pictured in their swatches - you may want to drop them a line...

     Not me, but I can confirm that the Classic Blue Oxford is already significantly stiffer in comparison.

     @spiermackay Rick, could you let me know about the above please?

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    Is the shirting available for MTM limited to what is on the website, or would there be more swatches to flip through if I went in person? I ordered my first shirt in person recently, but I went in knowing which fabric I wanted from the website, and admittedly didn't look around much.

    Tuxedo Studs on Non-formal Shirt

    I'm not sure how unfinished stud holes would hold up, but even this is ignoring the fact that the shirt wouldn't have the texture of a tuxedo shirt. Several forum sponsors carry affordable versions of these shirts (Kent Wang, Luxire at a glance). I know all too well how much weddings cost, but...

    Tuxedo Studs on Non-formal Shirt

    How would you get the studs through the other side of the shirt?

    Meermin Mallorca Shoes

     UPS is worse....the brokerage fee is a sliding scale based on the declared value. I used to have it bookmarked, but can't seem to find it right now. One time I ordered a pair of socks at a discount from the US, and the seller declared the pre-sale value. The difference of $3 caused the...

    Meermin Mallorca Shoes

     I use this site to estimate, and then tack on about $25 for FedEx to fill out a simple form (aka brokerage). Fairly accurate in this case, using the current exchange rate (~220 CDN)

     Did they work off of a picture or did you send your boots to them? I'm a huge fan of the 348 last....they were well wide of the mark by the looks of it.

    @luxire or anyone that might know: what is the weight of the classic blue Brembana oxford shirting? It feels significantly heavier than the G&R swatches I have, and I just wanted to confirm before ordering. Thanks.

    Luxire Custom Clothing - Official Affiliate Thread

     I asked for them to "adjust pattern for square shoulders" to eliminate this, after seeing a graphic on another forum sponsor's website. This decreases the slope. I believe (based on the same article) that the lines would run from near the collar points toward the armpits if you required...
