Bummer about the madras, but I'm sure you have enough going on.

I was a 16 in your old OCBD sizing, which I think translates to a 16/34, correct?

I was looking to restock in light blue, white, and pink striped in contemporary.

I ordered the first wave of OCBDs a few years ago and the elbow finally blew out on my trusty blue shirt. Looking forward to seeing one of the new batch.

Welcome my new favorite jacket (well I think that will change in a few weeks by the looks of the previews...). Can’t believe this was still around in my size with the sale pricing. The slubs seem like they got slept on hard.

Quick and dirty pic out of the box.

Damn you with the slub photos, Burzan, you're killing me cause there's no more in a 38 slim. I kept hoping for returns to pop up but realized they're final sale...

Not as strong as a seller as we liked unfortunately.

1-2 patterns, bleeding madras SS19? :nest:

Get a 38 contemporary if they have it. They made up slightly slim so the contemporary fits a lot like my other slim jackets.

How feasible an idea would it be to have something similar to a GMTO program where if something garners enough interest (say 10-15 people), it could be done as a special order?

Would it make sense from a business perspective, or on the contrary?

I ask because it might be a way of avoiding a situation where you you commit to a full production run for a "special" item, only to have it sit on the shelves if it turns out not to be a big seller?

I know this is frequently done among shoe sellers - Skoaktiebolaget, for instance - so I am curious to hear your thoughts.

Can anyone post pictures of the Classic Full Spread collar and the Extreme Spread for comparison? I’m thinking of ordering some custom shirts and wanted to see the difference. Thanks!

I like this idea. Might be a way to get some scale and get us some of the less mainstream items like higher rise trousers, specialty fabric sportcoats, and possibly safari jackets. The armoury just re-released the later and their sizing doesn't come close to working for me.

Hey old news on the washed denim shirts, but fyi:
I just bleached a mid-wash denim shirt (from propercloth) successfully and wrote a post about how I did it on my blog (link in signature). In case any of you were on the fence about the washed denim shirts SM is selling because you were looking for a slightly lighter wash.
the process isn't scary at all (well it is, but it is easy to get it right).
This is great news for me!

I impulse bought the stock light wash denim shirt from S&M in case it might have sold out.

Then realized S&M did indeed have MTM denim so I bought the same shirt in a custom collar.

Now I can bleach the first one and finally have the 3 different shades of denim shirts I needed in my closet.

Thank you for posting this.

Just bought my first S&M suit. I'll share my thoughts for those wanting more insight into my experience and my assessment of the product. For what it's worth, I've been following S&M since their early days on SF and own several trousers and about a dozen shirts from them.

I ordered and received the suit within 5 business days. I live in Boston. Beforehand, I called their CS phone number to see if they could give me a different size on the trousers (solely based on measurements), and they confirmed they could. I went with the basic navy, though charcoal was tempting; I wanted something that I could wear with medium brown shoes as well.

I have to say the suit itself is an unbelievable value for the product you are receiving. I have handled many SuitSupply suits and I feel this is on par if not better in quality, and the styling is more classic and conservative (more length, unexaggerated lapels, lower buttoning point). The fabric is a worsted 100% S110 navy wool, and feels like it can take a beating. I am 6 feet tall and a little heavier than usual at 190 lb., and I went with a size 44 contemporary suit with 35 contemporary trousers. I am normally a 42R and 34 in mall brand stuff. Besides hemming the inseam and shortening the back of the neck to fix a roll, it fits me as below, which I think is pretty great.
