    First outing with my new MTM green uni OCBD today. No pics of the shirred shoulder and yoke as it arrived without those details and will be remade shortly. However, the rest turned out very nice. Collar is unlined, my second time attempting fully unlined and I like they way it works with these oxford cloths.

    Ecru shirt, mid grey flannels and the ever popular guncheck from last year.

    This guy: https://www.spierandmackay.com/navy-hopsack-neapolitan-cut.html

    It would be too harsh to call them flaws, in my opinion. My body just doesn't work with RTW tremendously well. Midsection is somewhat boxy due to my 12ish" drop, and chest is probably just a bit wide, but not enough to really fret about. Button stance is higher than I'd prefer as well. That said, those are all very quick fixes when going the MTM route, so this is a fantastic starting template.

    Got so much use out of that jacket this past summer. It's a winner.

    CM is right that almost everyone here ties a four-in-hand knot. Shorter guys often do a double FIH (instructions here), since it looks like a FIH but takes up a few inches of length. Also makes the knot a bit thicker. It was popularized by guys like PhatGuido (now @GuidoWongolini) and @gshen of Vanda ties. Of course, you could also get shorter ties from places like Vanda and Sam Hober.

    Thanks for posting this. That guy's got some clean tailoring.

    This is my uniform. Coat, shirt, denim, and Alden chukkas. I never wear red like that. Draws out the red in my pale skin. Where is the denim from?

    Got 2 of the new khakis in.
    My first khaki purchase from S&M.
    Fabric feels great.

    Question - are these cut differently from the dress trousers?

    The knee/calf seems much slimmer for contemporary than I expected compared to the many dress trousers I have.

    quick question - do you know if that is that a 6mm or 2MM AMF pic stitching? I'm dying to give S&M MTM a whirl, but don't have plans to be in toronto anytime soon, hopefully they'll make a trip to NYC soon!

    So I went to the mall today and was checking some suits and SC's and overcoats from different brands. I was impressed when I reached the Ermenegildo Zegna booth. The Z Zegna suits were $26,000 pesos, that is around $1,300 USD! For a fused suit!! What in the F! Then I saw an overcoat, also from Z Zegna and it was $30,000 that is $1,500 USD!

    I said out loud: thank you S&M! And I left the store. :lol:

    42S. I'd probably take a standard 42, but the short was all that was still available.

    I have absolutely no idea, though I'm sure many S&M aficionados (lol) would have the answer. @Betelgeuse ?
