    We didn't touch the cuffs. But something I'll have the tailors double check. Our size charts are exactly the same for the cuffs.

    The contemporary was an increase over the slim, and you'd be surprised how many guys still ask for the slim to be even more so!

    What you are asking for may be a slightly more full cut suit, more along the lines of a classic fit. This is something we have thought about. It would be more in line with the Suitsupply Napoli. Wider shoulders, fuller chest.

    If your tobacco suit were the same color as your tobacco pants (and ideally had patch pockets) I'd have ordered it along with my core navy suit yesterday Rick. That said I'm still really tempted to. Do you have any daylight/real world pics of that suit?

    The tabacco suit IS the same colour as the trousers. I think maybe lighting conditions are the difference. Let me see if I can get a pic that is close to natural. I have it on display in the showroom.

    Oh SERIOUSLY? They look so different, the trouser separates look a warm, rusty brown online whereas the full suit looks like a cool brown.

    This pic is a pretty good representation. It's somewhere between the two. Not as saturated as the trouser, but warmer than the suit pic.

    It's a great shade of brown.

    Ouch I'll have to think about it after I see how the suit I just purchased fits. Thanks for the pic!

    Important question: can you make custom shirts for my wife and my cat?

    We want to do a family Christmas photo with matching flannel shirts.

    Yes, I am serious. I imagine the cat shirt will need a false front placket and actually Velcro up at the back. Pattern matching and MOP buttons are required all around (including the cat)

    Edit:MOP and flannel may be a formality clash. Will need to consider proper butttons...

    You and the wife, yes. Cat, I have to talk to the tailor about. That will make an epic Christmas pic though!

    I disagree with the notion to narrow the cuff opening. For me, the shirts I bought in December have the narrowest cuff opening of any non custom shirt I own. I can't fit a watch under the cuff for the 15.5" slim fit.

    I think that this contributes to my not being able to wear them with a jacket. The narrow cuff causes the sleeve to ride up a bit and disappear under my jacket (with proper sleeve lengths). The longer 35" sleeve on the 15.5 slim fit should help, but I haven't tried one on yet to know if it can now be worn with a jacket.

    Are you still on pace to release the Fall '15 items next week? What will be included in the next release? Suiting, trousers, shirts (OCBD??), belts, sport coats?

    Could you provide real world pics of the grey windowpane, light brown glen check, and the blue self check suits?

    Anyone dealt with returns from US? What's the process like? Do you only get store credit or a refund?

    I've returned several items and only had an issue getting something across the border once (If anybody would like to purchase a new contemporary fit navy bengal stripe shirt in 15.5 that had sleeves accidentally cut at 34" instead of 34.5" please let me know). I honestly cannot remember right now whether you get a refund or store credit but I believe it's the former + $15 store credit to cover for shipping.

    Just received several items today: Madras shirt (cannot tell you how much i regret not buying these sooner), two of the new lowered button shirts (a light blue chambray and a light blue hairline stripe), and a model 2 navy suit. Everything fits as specified online, and looks and feels so great in person. I've owned a Model 2 sportcoat for a couple months now and loved the fit, and needing a new suit for some upcoming interviews I purchased the navy. It's fantastic. I previously owned the model 1 core navy and gray suits and as great a value as those were, this is a definite step up. Can't remember if the fabric is improved on this version but nonetheless it's quite nice, IMO better than a VBC 110s navy fabric I have for a SuitSupply suit.

    Now I'm really looking forward to the full canvas option whenever it gets released!
