    Is there any of this fabric left, and is it too heavy for spring/summer wear? Also, are you able to do higher-waisted trousers (in the vein of the Eidos Sal model)?

    Yes, I have cloth left in this. Yes we can do trousers in any style you like.

    I'm here until closing at 7 pm.

    Rick, how often are you downtown / do you have set days you come to the Toronto location? I work downtown so it's more convenient, but my measurements/files are in Mississauga. I got my MTM shirt and want to make a few changes to the arms.

    I'm not here often, and I'll be here less and less. Just here now as the shop is new and we're still trying to figure a lot of stuff out.

    That said, the staff here are all well trained and can handle customer needs as well as I can personally.

    The chinos that are coming in, will they be dressy enough to wear with a dress shirt?

    This group coming in are more on the casual side. But they should work with a dress shirt and sportcoat for a dress down look.

    Rick, is it safe to assume that the heavier a custom shirting fabric is, the less likely it will be to wrinkle easily? Or is there no correlation there?

    Also, can you (or anyone else on the forum) recommend a white workhorse fabric from your custom offerings? I'm mainly looking for something that doesn't wrinkle too much and that will still look decent towards the end of a long day of wear.

    OMG I see a few pages for the madras popped up, no pics showing yet but can't wait to see the made up versions of those fabrics. [​IMG]

    I'm going to pop in today and maybe pick up some shirts. Pretty excited about handling the products in person.

    I can't say for myself as I haven't had shirts made up of any of the below mentioned fabrics but back on Page 226 Rick said this in reply to someone else:

    I bought custom pinpoint oxford shirts in blue and pink and they are easy to iron and don't wrinkle that badly. I would assume a white pinpoint would act the same.

    My quick review of the store.

    1. I was disappointed they don't have actual spears in store.

    2. The layout is great and functional.

    3. I bought two polo shirts and they are an excellent value. Trim, athletic fit. Don't sleep on this deal.

    4. The suits were well cut. Classic lapels and good silhouette.

    5. Staff very friendly.

    6. Ties decent quality (was pleasently surprised). Recommend they carry grenadines at some point.

    7. The OTR shirts were nice. Sturdy collars and excellent fabric choices.

    8. Only real downside was that they were running low on Thomas mason shirting for their custom program. Rick, are you guys going to be restocking those fabrics?

    If you're in the area, you should definitely visit.

    Thanks @spex and @SouthOfBloor. Going to try the white pin oxford. Pretty sure I already have the blue and it's a nice fabric.

    Rick, might I suggest adding a purchase online and pick up in store option?

    Rick,

    Any chance you have an indigo linen in 16 slim still? Plans to reorder if not?

    Also, I have their newest poplin, and their specially-made twill.

    Both are great. The heavy 2x80 twill might eventually be too warm for the hottest summer days, but it wears like a bulletproof vest. The poplin is slightly more prone to wrinkles, but much better than other poplins I've had. The poplin is not too translucent, which is also unlike other poplins I've had.

    I also had an older white (warzone oxford?) which I don't think they carry any more.
