    Those of you with Rugbys-- Can you share how much shrinkage you experienced with a few washes (and whether you hang-dried or machine-dried)? I believe Kent that they don't typically shrink much, but everyone has different washers and conditions, and I want to see if that has an influence.

    I have imported all the suit fabrics from the fabric spreadsheet to the website, so now they're much easier to browse.

    About a hundred fall/winter fabrics have not been added (and probably won't since my photographer is backlogged) but we can send you the swatches.

    Do you have any cotton, linen or non-wool fabrics?

    This is a stretch, but do you know where the conditions in which the sheeps are raised and sheared? I'm currently not buying wool because I'm concerned about the way the sheeps are sheared are cared for as I don't want to be involved in causing them pain. You would make me a loyal customer if you were able to guarantee me fabrics which are "pain free".

    Cheers

    I believe Kent mentioned that he has a hemp suit in the works for fall.

    Is there any tweed in the fall/winter lineup of fabrics?

    There are about ten tweeds. They're not on the website. We'll have to send the swatches for you to see.
    I have a few cottons and maybe still some 100% linen remaining from summer, but they're not on the website. Email [email protected] and we'll have a look.

    I think very few mills say where their wool comes from, except some will say they use only Australian wool. You would have to find some specialist mill. If you'll source the fabric yourself we can make it up for you as CMT. The price is the same as the A price range, so $750 for a 2-piece. This covers the administrative and logistical cost of doing CMT.
    No, you must have me mistaken with someone elseā€”or is this a joke?

    Yes it was and in quite poor taste I now think. Sorry! Im certainly all for the ethical treatment of those animals generous enough to clothe me.

    Nice....once I order my suit - hopefully in the next month or two, funds a quite limited right now - I'd definitely like to check out some of the tweeds to have an odd jacket made.

    Hey Kent,

    Just wanted to double check something with you. I was browsing through the fabric swatches on the website but noticed the weights were different than I had remembered from the spreadsheet. Specifically, I recall the Loro Piana pick-and-picks being lighter than the Gladson ones, but the website swatches have it the other way around. Am I just remembering this wrong? Are you sure the fabric weights are accurate?

    It would be nice to see more fit pics of MtM suits. Who's got some!

    Also, Kent, do you have any plans to introduce MtM coats for the winter?

    It is definitely darker on his site. I just received mine today.
    I love it, it fits well up top, and in the waist, yet is too short :(
    Emailed kent to see what can be done, if anything. Construction is great, I love the collar, and the buttons. Great polo, definitely.
    Here is a quick photo I grabbed before packing it back up

    In 'real life' it is a tad bit lighter than my photo.
