    Sound logic I shall follow. Thank you.

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    Hello all: I am ordering 2 custom suits from S&M and have just finished setting up my first on the webpage. The pant hem contemporary standard that shows up as 18.5" on the order form seems a chunk wider than my S&M stock suits from a few years ago. They measure more like 15.5" or so, and my...

    Suit Jacket/Sports Coat Sizing

    2 3/4" inches for me wearing a size 42 jacket is my preference. I do suspect opinions vary and what I see out there is all over the map. Like -2" too often😶

    Thank you all for your assistance- it has been very illuminating and is much appreciated.

    pant/trousers suggestions for off white linen jacket

    That's a brilliant look, DapperP. If my size becomes available in the trousers I will snap them up.

    pant/trousers suggestions for off white linen jacket

    I have these and a similar pair in tobacco so I will put them together. I had been wearing the jacket with light trousers only but will try to be a bit more bold.

    pant/trousers suggestions for off white linen jacket

    I had not thought of jeans since I very rarely wear them but that just might be the ticket. I will try the tone on tone idea too. Thank you, that's much appreciated!

    pant/trousers suggestions for off white linen jacket

    Hello all- I have yet to find a combination that I really like for this S&M linen jacket. I typically wear a light sage or tan linen and cotton pant with it but don't love the look- any thoughts from the forum? I don't want to look like a waiter unless I'm being tipped, but I would prefer tips...

    The Oxford-Shoe-Worn-Casually Appreciation Thread

    I can't wait to visit my local cobbler and ask him if he can resole my foot attire. Probably leave with an awl lodged between my eyes. ;)?

    Nautical clocks with ship’s bell

    My experience (salt and fresh water, so perhaps irrelevant) has been that Weems and Plath instruments have declined in quality a touch over the last few decades. My most recent set does feel less robust and well-finished than the first. I would nonetheless be quite happy to have one or two in my...

    Sustainable Menswear?

    ...and they would also say part of the reason was poor enforcement of banking regulations. A more recent example would be that of Boeing essentially enforcing FAA regulations on itself, with some problematic results.

    Sustainable Menswear?

    My experience leads me to believe the change in CEO focus is clearly in progress in some industries but just as clearly not in others. Often where pension plans, institutional funds, and hedge funds hold significant positions the role of a CEO is indeed to maximize profit for stakeholders over a...

    My tailor shortened my S&M linen jacket sleeves and they turned out just fine. He didn't complain to me about any difficulties with it.

    Throw on a pair of espadrilles and you're off to the races. Without your wife, I suspect.

    Sustainable Menswear?

    But they don't. Sometimes they do fail to sort them out, such as some fisheries that have been lost over the last 20 years. Markets can be overly focused on short term returns when owners of capital are focused on the shorter term rather than the long term sustainability of the industry they are...

    Sustainable Menswear?

    Forgive me for stating the obvious, but I must note that there is substantive variance in the working conditions at garment manufacturers' facilities across southeast Asia; some outsourcers perform compliance checks and have by times sanctioned their suppliers. I do realize these folks are in...

    On ‘over-dressing’

    I expect a worthwhile candidate for any reasonably responsible position to ascertain that themselves prior to the interview. Much like I would expect any worthwhile comment on a post to be made in a timely fashion, not five days after the fact. ;)
