    Until next Wednesday. The email will be going out later this afternoon.

    Sorry, been crazy busy last few days. I'll do my best to take a quick later today.

    I have the herringbone blue, and have seen the other 2 IRL.


    The Navy is just that, smooth hand, nice quality wool in true navy. Pick stitch detail and patch pockets make it a great coat at a great price.

    The hopsack is neppy with the linen in it. Comes through as black neps in areas. I didn't like it because it looks worn. Not noticed by most people, but it bothered me.

    The herringbone is great, beautiful/unique "petrol-ish" blue. PM your email if you want real photos. Need to wear solid trousers for it to work IMO. And I happen to like patterned trousers, which is really the only restriction, but that goes for all herringbone coats.

    I wanted a blue coat but not a smooth wool blue coat, and the hopsack just wasn't ideal for me. I plain hopsack in a shade lighter than navy would have fit the bill pefrect for me.


    Overall they are great jackets that fit similar to a susu hudson but with a bit more shape. My advice would be to get the Plain Navy

    First time looking at S&M. Interested in the grey prince of wales check and the medium grey core both in contemporary fit. Does anyone have IRL pics of either?

    Are the shoulders unpadded on the sportcoats? And is the canvassing in the chest soft?

    What about the suits?

    When is the new website coming? Will it have models modelling the suits and shirts like how Suit supply does it for example?

    Rick. Love your product and love your service but your website is terrible. Not as terrible as Luxire though :)

    Sportcoats are very lightly padded. The pad is only 0.3 cm thick. We use a very soft, pliable canvas.

    Suit have 0.5 cm shoulder pad.

    Target is for Mid Febuary/Early March. Suits will be on Model. Shirts will be same. It's an old site, we know.

    Welp, the $50 off would have saved me slightly more than the current code but I'm gonna go ahead and give the brown tobacco herringbone suit a try anyway.

    You save 5 CAD right (15% off of $300 is $45 off)? I don't think that's the biggest problem since it gives you another week to think about it.

    Exactly, I don't mind at all. And tbh I buy so much from Spier and haven't had many issues w/ returns so if I decide not to keep it, it's not really an issue as I'll apply the return credit to the batch of OCBDs they're hopefully releasing very soon.

    My two suits just arrived in the mail, can't wait to try them on. Got the bold blue check and light blue birdseye. I used to wear their 34 suit but I've since put on some weight and can't fit into them any more haha! Hope the 36 slim fit will fit well!

    Hey Rick, what's the ETA on the university stripe OCBDs? Waiting on the navy and burgundy that you mentioned earlier.

    Also, anyone have IRL pics of S&M OCBDs, and any opinions on how they fair over time? Anyone wear them with ties?
