    I own and enjoy the flannel easy trousers, hemmed with 2" cuffs. The material is warm and comfy and holds a crease surprisingly well. Drawstrings are out front. Actually wore them today in what happened to be a mostly S&M outfit: navy heavy hoodie over a cream short-sleeve crewneck sweater and...

    I think so? I ordered my normal size in S&M tailored trousers and they fit fine. Obviously the elastic waist makes them somewhat more forgiving after lunch...

    I know they’re not for everyone, but I’ve been wearing my S&M tailored drawstring flannel trousers this week, and am reminded how they’re one of my all-time favorite purchases from the company. Seriously considering picking up a couple more pairs.

    Random tidbit … my S&M chukkas may have set off metal detectors going through airport security. Was either those or a metal card in my wallet, because I got through after removing those.

    I suspect the "core" customer is changing (COVID accelerated the existing trend of more casual office dress codes), and S&M "trying to do too many things" is their way of getting a sense of what people will actually buy. Putting out these small runs of SKUs are relatively low-risk experiments...

    I own the chukkas, and don't recall the laces seeming too long. I usually turn to Allen Edmonds or (shame, shame) random Amazon sellers for laces.

    Maybe this is the norm now and I missed the memo, but I want to give @spiermackay kudos for speeding up their turnaround time. Placed an order 1/26, with two trousers to be hemmed, and it shipped 1/31--just 5 days later including a weekend. Incredibly, I placed a second order on 1/28 and it...

    I got the FW'21. I'm liking the overall silhouette, the slope of the shoulders, the weight of the cloth, and the way the jacket moves (or rather, doesn't) when I raise my arms ... just not a fan of how it feels like my rib cage is being squeezed.

    This is interesting. I received the Slim full-canvas BG flannel suit last week with great trepidation about the armholes. My first impression after initially trying it on wasn't so much discomfort at the armpits as it was tightness through the chest. That left me scratching my head over whether...

    Why were you thinking of tossing it? Dare I ask ... armholes?

    SPIER & MACKAY - Official Affiliate Thread

    On this ... understandably, people who had an issue with the raised armhole would raise concerns in this thread. But I'm wondering if there are more folks like the poster above who are fine with it and just haven't spoken up.

    This is insightful, and I'd add: how about maintaining the ABS in a world less inclined toward tailored clothing? A couple weeks ago I purchased a full-canvas flannel suit from S&M. Last night I put in an order that was almost the same dollar value, but a totally different makeup: flannel...

    Good construction and warmth, but I found my normal size fits too tight. Gave mine to my wife, and she loves it.

    This is based on last year's, but the proportions do seem ... different. Taking my normal size, the arms fit fine, but the torso seems a little too wide. By comparison, this year's lattice knit turtlenecks seem proportional across the board.

    Yes, it does, even through PayPal, but in my experience it seems to vary by card issuer. Bank of America and US Bank both charged foreign transaction fees; American Express did not (even on a card that SHOULD have charged a foreign transaction fee).

    Regular rise, side tabs, no pleats. Fight me.

    Funny. Lattice-knit sweaters had expected ship date of 10/22; order is still “processing” for me.

    I actually asked the same question in this thread back in May. This was Rick's response: Not sure that anything came of it.

    I've encountered similar issues hemming pants. I leave the desired measurement in the notes and they take care of it. S&M have been good about follow-through, but you can shoot them an email after the order to confirm.
