    Does anyone have a picture of the model 2 Solid Navy Blazer? I'd like to see how it looks in the wild.

    Thanks.

    Edit: oops, i have the suit not the blazer.

    I just wanted to share my recent customer service experience with Spier and Mackay.

    Yesterday I wrote in this thread asking about the turn around time on MTM shirts as I had been waiting for some time on 4 I had ordered ( I incorrectly noted it had been nine weeks since the order when in fact it had been seven). I received a response almost immediately. After a few private messages, I received the information I was looking for regarding my order mere hours after my first post. All of this took place well after normal business hours Toronto time.

    I was informed that my shirts have just been received in Mississauga, but that one of them was made up in an incorrect fabric. I was told I would be given that shirt free of charge and that the one I had ordered would be made up and sent along very quickly. All of this in less than 24 hours with much of the correspondence taking place well after business hours.

    This prompt attention to my questions and generous offer of the free shirt are much appreciated.

    The customer service from Rick and his team is why I keep going back. The genuine honesty behind his replies that I see on this forum is very reassuring as well.

    But seriously, S&M is quite reasonable, no?

    Not everything I've purchased has been perfect initially but the way Rick resolved the problems has been outstanding. (and I keep going back as well [​IMG])

    They may be open. When you come in ask any CS to see them. Shouldn't be a problem, but you may have to look at them still in boxes.

    Ok Gentlemen, here is a direct comparison of our current OCBD collar, which is completely unlined vs. Kamakura which has a fused collar.

    First is ours: You can see the softness of the collar, which causes it to have a bit of rumpling, creases and unevenness when worn with a tie. This is pretty much exactly how it should behave as a traditional, unlined OCBD.

    Here is the Kamakura shirt. You can see the fusing gives a "crispness" and evenness to the collar.

    What we are thinking is now, to run a fused version as the "main" oxford. This works with/without a tie and good for suits/sportcoats, etc. Possibly, develop a slightly heavier fabric for a more casual version, which would be unfused.

    Oh, BTW, having both shirts side by side, everyone in our office agrees our new oxford fabric is superior to the Kamakura's.

    Thoughts?

    With a tie? the Kamakura looks better. Without a tie? It depends if you want that rumpled look. Being that it is OCBD, personally, S&M version.

    I think your idea is good: fused version for main oxford; unfused for heavy fabric oxford.
