    Question for the guys that have picked up the latest release of the brushed oxford.

    The brushing is quite minimal, but how do you guys like it? Do we keep it on the next run, keep the brushing but take it down a bit or get rid of it and just keep a classic, standard, traditional oxford fabric.

    Another option is, we keep the brushing for Sportshirts and run a regular oxford for "dress oxfords"

    Opinions?

    I love it just the way it is. It is not enough brushed to loose it's ability to pair with a sport coat. And it looks good on it's own, rolled sleeves with jeans or chinos.

    Seeing it in person today, I thought the brushing was already pretty understated, which is good.

    If it's not brushed does it have a sheen? I've seem some oxfords with a lot of shine and others that are pretty flat.

    I have the light blue brushed oxford and like the minimal brushing, as it makes the shirt look solid from a distance but adds a degree of visual interest up close. I don't think I'd like it if it had more brushing.

    If you want to run a "dress oxford," it would be awesome in a semi-spread collar and university stripe.

    I went in and got my shirt as well as the chino's.

    Here is a pic. Don't mind the crappy outfit as I was going to grab a bite to eat quickly.

    Pants are slim, just how I like it. A heck of a deal at $15

    If there is more size 30 in Navy or khaki let me know Rick

    Thanks

    I have the shirts saved in my checkout cart, but before I checkout, can someone comment on how the slim fit shirts fit? Specifically compared to the Tailored Slim Fit from Banana Republic?

    If you own the BR shirts just measure one and compare vs the posted measurements on the site. That would be the easiest way to compare imo.

    It's been a couple years since I wore a BR shirt, but I think their tailored slim is more like S&M's Contemporary fit, which is pretty slim as it is is. Best thing to do is compare measurements.

    Gentlemen, Here are the first group of fabrics available for the MTO/MTM. 2 Piece Suit (Half Canvas) $550 CAD, Jacket $400, Trousers $150, Waistcoat $150

    As we have not offered this before, we feel the most efficient way to take orders at the moment is as follows:

    Email your order to info@spierandmackay.com with the subject: SF MTM Promo.

    1. Advise your existing SM account and which email address is associated to it. If you don't have an account, please register HERE.

    2. Advise the fabric you want to select along with the fabric code.

    3. Advise Jacket styling details:
    • Canvas (Half, Full +$100 CAD)
    • Front Buttoning (i.e. 2 Button, 3 Roll 2.5, etc)
    • Lapel (Peak, Notch and advise Width) - Can also advise if want standard or high gorge height. High gorge is 2 cm higher than standard.
    • Pockets: (Straight, Slanted. With Ticket, Patch, etc)
    • Chest Pocket: (Normal, Barchetta, Patch, etc)
    • Vents: (Single, Double)
    • Shoulder: Normal, No Padding, Spalla Camica, etc.
    • Lining Colour: Only 3 choices. Burgundy Bemberg, Navy Bemberg, Black Bemberg

    4. Advise Trouser styling details:
    • Front (no pleats, single pleat, etc)
    • Pockets (On Seam, Off Seam, etc)
    • Hem: (No Cuff, Cuffed and Cuff Size)
    • Waist Band: (Regular or Extended)
    • Side Tabs or Belt Loops
    • Lining: (To Knee, To Hem)

    5. Sizing
    These will be based on our Model 2, both Slim and Contemporary fit blocks.

    Jacket: Advise what changes are needed to a standard size. i.e. shorten/lengthen sleeves, take in/let out waist, chest, sleeve pitch, square back, etc.
    Trouser: Advise what changes are needed to a standard size. i.e. take in/let out waist, hip, thigh, knee, hem. Raise/Lower front or back rise. Advise finished outseam.

    If you have never ordered a suit from us, you can advise adjustments based on our listed measurements. Alternatively, you can purchase a suit/trouser and the purchase can be credited towards your custom suit when returned if you so choose. As this program is running on a razor thin margin, we will charge $15 CAD against the trial suit to offset the return charge. (We will be offering first suit return free starting later this week for US customers)

    Excellent, this is very flexible. I suppose there's no deadline, just first come first serve?
    In terms of sizing, an alternative would be to visit the store and try things on and hope the fabric is still available. Can we see the swatch's in person at the store?

    No particular deadline right now. We do have limited stocks. So it is first come, first serve type of deal.

    Certainly you can visit the shop and see swatches in person.
