    I’m quite interested in seeing the popovers as well I passed on them last year but I’m thinking they would work really well for me.

    Did anyone who bought popovers last year size up? It feels like a style that would be best a little slouchy.

    They were cut slightly bigger so you could pull them overhead. I think it's better to buy clothes intentionally cut to be slouchy rather than sizing up as they're actually 2 different things, but that said it could be a reasonable strategy here.

    Hey Rick, any guess as to when you will get more of the Light Heather Gray Slim Fit suits? I'm looking for a 42 slim, which is currently out of stock.

    There was a mistake with the linen/cotton popovers where they were cut without an extra inch or so in the body. As far as I know the linen popovers were properly sized. If everything goes well this year, you shouldn’t have to size up.

    I haven't bought trousers from S&M precisely for this reason. My tolerance for trouser waists are 32.5 to 33 inches and need an 8 inch hem opening at least, and 8.25 minimally is preferred This is due to my large ankles/calves.

    The slightly lower rise I can still live with, but having to size up and subsequently altering the waist smaller to get my desired fit is a deal breaker.

    Would love the shirts more if the wrist openings were larger as well! Charles Tyrwhitt hits the sweet spot for me.

    Thanks gents, I guess we’ll wait and see what Rick thinks on how the sizing came out for this year.

    @Burzan I have a Kamakura popover and desperately wish it was of the slouchy variety. I think it was their Tokyo size and I feel like I’m wearing a bib when I put it on...

    Thanks Rick, I would appreciate it. It will definitely help me coordinate what I could pair with it.

    I rec'd the VBC side tab trousers (navy and brown) and i found them to be a bit tighter in the waist and seat than normal. Thinking of going into the store and trying a bigger size or going to contemporary.
    Would you guys recommend wearing them with a looser waist so it can be adjusted with the side tabs?

    I'm interested in the new linen shirts but the sizing isn't quite right for me. The 16 1/2 only come in 36" sleeves but I am closer to 33". Is that too much of a difference to have altered and still look right or will that look weird?

    It's actually a very light brown, almost golden or yellowish.

    Take them to the shop and let them open the waist and seat slightly. If the thigh and leg are ok, no need to go up a size.

    This is one of the cloths that we had limited stock on. You can see that 16.5, 17 and 17.5 only have singular sleeve lengths. The longer sleeve can be cut down. Just ask your tailor to move the sleeve placket as well and not to just chop it at the cuff.
