Personally not always a fan of soft tailoring and Paul Stuart really come to it kind late, but think they have done it right

Looks pretty generic, but at least it’s not small lapel (oh and it run small, i’m 36 but 38 works)

The notch is so high that you literally cannot see it ! smh...

think they pinned it even higher for photo purpose, don't think it was that high when I tried on, though "most" modern jacket these all have high notch regardless...

edit: add qualifier...

I noticed that the gorge on my last two suits looked higher on the mannequins in the photos than they actually were.

"California e-tailer Revolve did $499 million in sales last year" oh that's pretty good...

"but spent $531 million on returns, after accounting for processing costs and lost sales. The number does not account for the retailer also covering the shipping costs of returns."

Whaaat???

That's poorly written. $499mm is the net sales amount after returns. So this means that they invoiced $1bn that year but half of it was refunded for returns.

It is very significant indeed.

Wow. Significant in what way Greg? That one in two sales is returned or that they turned over a billion dollars?

People keep on saying this, and it confuses me, since it's clearly not true, even with a perfunctory glance. That's where the bulk of our audience is still at, though the topics of conversation have of course changed with the years.
can you share some high-level stats / splits? or is that something we can see ourselves? curious what the activity / user base, etc. look like between CM and SWD

Mr P's site has been redesigned. Not sure if it's a mistake or intentional. They removed the return/exchange button. The only way to return or exchange is to call customer service or email.
