    Custom 3 piece (sans trousers) that has 4.25" bellied Peak lapels.

    I Don't think a lot of people in the GTA are aware of the flexibility of our custom program. We can customize virtually any part of the suit. Lapel width, Lapel style and variation, gorge height, button stance, pocket size, pocket placement. Pretty much anything. Very similar to what you would get from bespoke in terms of options - meaning pretty much anything.

    Sad to hear about the walnut, have any rejects in a size 34 you want to sell by chance?

    The sizing thing makes sense, as long as they are different enough from the 30mm I can see why you chose to keep them at 33mm.

    When you say pretty much anything, does that include hand padded lapels, self felt collars, hand attached sleeve head (basically a fully hand made garment)?

    Let me get back to you on the full list of handwork available. But handwork available that I know of is sleeve head, collar felt, pick stitch, button holes and buttons, lining attachment.

    There is a bit of handwork in the standard custom garment, but for the most part it is machine made. The additional handwork would be extra. What I was referring to is styling options, just to be clear. :)

    Not at the moment. We only run custom suiting in store due to measuring and sizing. Too much risk in trying to use body measurements remotely to get a good fit. We may offer a MTO/MTM program in the future similar to that of Kent Wang, utilizing an OTR product and making adjustments.

    For your Full Canvas OTR suits, I'd vote side tabs (with the necessary buttons/loops for suspenders).

    If you do use belt loops, consider including a belt keeper loop. I would advise this for all your suits in the future. I have borelli chinos and benjamin sartorial suit pants that have belt keepersloops. They do wonders!

    Also, rubber grips sewn into the inner waistband will help keep shirts from getting untucked. This applies to both side tabs and belt loops.

    I would like to see some OCBDs. Some light blue and blue and white stripes specifically. I can never get enough of those.

    Light blue, light pink, or even forest green university stripe OCBDs, or even spread collar shirts would fly off the racks IMO.

    Very nice - wish I could give a try to your MTM program, although it's a 7 hour drive to Toronto from my place.

    This. Some OCBD in staple fabrics (light blue, blue/pink university stripes, etc.) are long-awaited! With beefy collar rolls, of course! I'd jump right in if available!

    A while back Rick mentioned he is working will the factory to develop the OCBD cloth. I wonder how is that going. Need some OCBDs too.

    Fabric is being delivered this week. It came out better than we expected. Really excited to get this program rolling.
