    Not sure if serious.

    FWIW my goto tie knot is the Half Windsor. I'm 6-6 and use regular length ties, although fairly slim so that helps. I only tie four in hand with my really thick wool ties as the bigger knit gets too bulky.

    You guys had sleeves shortened before on S&M suits? I’d like to, but it would be the first time I’ve needed that. Anyone have after pics of the “old” stitching after being removed?

    I didn't keep the old stitching, sorry.

    don't worry, I've done it on a bunch of suits and sport coats, you can't see any marks

    SM jackets are the only ones that came in perfect length and I'm really detailed on getting the right sleeve lengths.

    Ugh, I had a coworker at a previous job that used to wear this and insist that it was “the most formal knot”. We were in client-facing roles (finance) and he used to wear this to meetings. The knot looked like a P’zone, kind of made me cringe.

    Yeah, the 38R sleeve is spot on for me.

    Rick, imo the latest jacket cut is perfect the way it is but the sleeves can be at least 1cm slimmer. It would look more balanced especially for the Slim cut. Also the genuine horn buttons can have more curves instead of flat if you can find a supplier to keep prices the same.

    You've probably already answered this before, but where on the website can we put in such requests? Is there a text field with optional image attachment that I've missed?

    The overall sleeves should not be tapered. Tapering could be done just below the elbows to the wrist to achieve a more Neapolitan silhouette with fuller sleeves. But I am totally fine with what they have in the contemporary cut.

    There's a comment box on the checkout page, right above the place order button. It says "leave your comment"

    @spiermackay any chance for different coloured cords? Say, burgundy, purple, cornflower?

    Many thanks! :) You just made the likelihood of my first foray into S&M that much higher. Hopefully requests like collar band height can be accommodated.
