    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    So I went to Suitsupply today. (Brief aside to rant: I got "helped" by a completely useless and condescending sales associate who told me I didn't need to worry about fit, and to leave that to him, and Havana/Lazio/Milano didn't mean anything and varied by suit and by year, so it was useless to...

    Why does men's fashion come mostly from England and Italy (and America)? Why not France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Austria, etc?

    I thought about tweeting this question to him actually. I did post it on reddit to r/AskHistorians, but nobody cared or answered!

    Why does men's fashion come mostly from England and Italy (and America)? Why not France, Germany, Holland, Spain, Austria, etc?

    And most established and famous menswear makers are from the UK or Italy. It seems like classic men's tailoring rules and culture came from a period between the late 19th to early 20th centuries. During this period, you'd think that Berlin, Paris, Brussels, Vienna, etc were just as major...

    Amazing, thanks for all the help! Will pop into Suit Supply next week and find out my drive in their popular cuts, and triangulate further.

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    Yeah, that's a good shout. Unfortunately, I've checked eBay, Grailed, Vinted, Depop, the B&S forum here, and Poshmark and there's only one 36R available across the whole lot, and cheap as it is, I still don't want to buy it. And re: getting measurements and comparing, I don't really ever think...

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    Height and weight numbers are, in my experience, not great to draw conclusions about someone's size. Everybody's weight is distributed differently. I've tried out 38R in Ludlow and it's definitely too big for me, even when I'm at my bulkiest. Here's me in 36R Ludlow (fairly slim currently, so...

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    Thinking of buying my first S&M suit, but unfortunately I'm in the UK, so exchanges and returns are a big hit. Wondering if people have general sizing comparisons to share with the only suits I own, JCrew Ludlow? I'm quite slim/V-shaped - I fit pretty well into Ludlow 36R, especially at the...

    Spier & Mackay Trousers fit advice - contemporary vs slim

    Do you not think this looks awful? Not saying I expect RTW pants to look like the pictures here, but this isn't even in the same ballpark.

    Spier & Mackay Trousers fit advice - contemporary vs slim

    Here are two trousers, both high rise in size 32. The gray donegal is in the slim fit I own already, and the navy flannel is the contemporary fit I just bought. The gray fits much better in general, but in purchasing the navy flannel, I wanted it a bit more classic in the leg, and to fall...

    Wanted: Brooks Brothers ESF 15/34 OCBDs

    thanks for the offer, but that wouldn't fit me right!

    Wanted: Brooks Brothers ESF 15/34 OCBDs

    Preferrably looking for the old ones with the pocket. Sport shirts (sized S/M/L) probably don't work because their sleeves are generally 33".

    Classic Burberry Prorsum trench, size 46

    Not sure what decade it's from - you can tell it's been worn, but you don't know why you can tell, because there are no stains or tears, even fraying. The only sign of wear is on the leather belt buckle. Size 46 Burberry, which should fit a US/UK 36, but in my opinion would fit a 38 better...

    Almost new shell color 8 AE MacNeils size 9C

    These first quality longwings from Allen Edmonds are basically new. You can see the minimal wear on the soles (almost no wear on the heel counter), and no scratches or anything. I was so excited when I bought these I ignored the pinch, and, well, now I have to give them up since this last...

    Bexley combined orders to the UK

    Gotcha. Thanks for the reply. If nobody else is interested I'm probably just going to buy one pair.
