    That is pretty much what we are doing. Only debate we are having internally is to make it a soft 3 roll 2 or not. Gentlemen any suggestions?

    I vote no on the 3-2 roll. I never liked the look of the extra button above that is never used. Just my opinion though

    If all your full canvas suits are going to have lapels like that, I'll buy one of each (assuming that they fit me). I vote 3 roll 2.

    Consider trying to emulate Sartorio Formosa:

    That has a ridiculously awesome lapel roll, a big lapel similar to Eidos, but a lower button stance.

    Vote yes. What's the point of having hallmarks of a neapolitan suit and going halfway? The suits will have an identity crisis

    3 roll 2 also helps the lapel roll. Remember we suggested these features last year

    SOFT 3-2 roll, please!

    I have one of your last fall's jackets which have a hard 3-2 roll (the kind where you see the top hole ON the fold). I like that style OK for sportscoats but a softer, gentler roll would be better on suits. I agree, the Formosa example is good. I have a Kent Wang suit with a very nice 3-2 roll and I love that shape.

    I'm also a fan of the 3-roll-2. It's a distinguishing feature that's not obnoxious.

    As long as the button stance is low enough, another vote for it too.

    Received the Full Canvas Sample today. This is only the first sample, but it came out pretty amazing.

    You can see from this (terrible cell phone pic) the really great lapel roll. The canvas is really soft and supple. The jacket overall is very lightweight but still has a great feel.

    I don't have an issue with a 3 roll 2 itself, however on my blue sportcoat the position of the buttonhole on the lapel seems to slightly disturb the otherwise smooth like of the lapel roll. If the buttonhole can be placed in a way that it doesn't jut out in obvious way, then I think it's OK. I also wonder if a 3 roll 2 is more of a blazer/sportcoat thing rather than on a suit? I'm not sure.

    It's a jacket thing (suits and sport coats) and can be found in American ivy, different italian regional cuts and some british cuts. Button placement should be carefully considered by spiermackay just like any other feature in the suit

    A little late here, but I vote yes on the soft 3-roll-2 as well. Agree with the comment above that you might as well go all the way with the Neopolitan style. Lower button stance sounds great as well. I'm really excited for these.

    Hi Rick,

    This is my first post at style forum. I visited your store a couple of times a few months ago and purchased 6 of your classic shirts(which you discontinued) and I've been really happy with them,in particular the collars and the cuffs.Anyway I've lost a little weight so I'll definitely be making an order for some contemporary shirts soon.

    anyway, my question is about your suiting, you have some nice prices right now, I think your 46 will fit based on your measurements, however I'm wondering if there is any room/need to lengthen the sleeves a little as I'm usually between regular and tall size, I almost always have to adjust the tall to show a bit of shirt cuff?

    Are you planning on stocking tall sizes soon? Also how much approx range wise are your m2m suits?

    Thanks,and good luck with growing your business.
