I warm washed and air dried mine hoping for a bit of shrink and got almost nothing. So, I'm not sure what's going on...

Got the cigar linen jacket. It's quite good. Needs some tailoring but nothing is competitive with S&M in Canada price/quality-wise so I guess these are my new guys. And quit pressuring them to lengthen the sleeves! They're already at least a full inch longer than Suit Supply, which fit me perfectly. I'm average height and have never worn a short before but I'm thinking about it for the next one.

Sorry for my absence recently. I fell behind on SS20 fabric orders to get those in on time to meet the factory production schedule, so I've been playing catch up for the past week. I should be able to come up for air by Mid next week. I'm travelling to the shoe factory over the weekend to get the new shoes into production and start work on the next round of samples.

Seeing a lot of pitti photos of the “summer tweed” fabric from die workwear. Any way @spiermackay can get a hold of some for a suit next summer with patch pockets.
If anyone has any idea where the cloth is from, I can try. But all the Mills I checked, no one knows. I can probably get it developed, but that takes time.

Just a heads up on sizing with the new oxfords. Shrunk 1 inch after a cold wash/air dry. Thankfully I sized up
Did you measure before washing to see if there was any manufacturing tolerance?

I wish I had a better picture. Here is a contemporary suit (both jacket and pants). I consider myself skinny as hell but I enjoy every extra inch of room in that armhole. And mentioning the pants - I need every bit of room in the hip, thigh and knee area. If these garments were any slimmer I'd need to size up on everything.

I tried a slim pair of pants once and I couldn't put the pants on because the hip and legs were so slim. Power to the people who can wear them, they are truly slim fit.
Hmm... I've been eyeballing the cigar linen suit in my size, but there's only a slim available (really left it quite late). I enjoy the slim jacket, so no questions there, but the trousers is my worry. I haven't purchased S&M trousers before, but have read copiously here that contemporary is the way to go if you want a good silhouette. In saying that, I compared the measurements of the slim high waisted trousers to my best fitting suitsupply Washington trousers, and there's hardly a difference? My no means are my Washington trousers hugging my legs, on the contrary they have a fantastic drape (luck I suppose with the inconsistencies of suitsupply). In saying that, the rule of thumb seems to be to go contemporary, but the size chart speaks otherwise?

Anyone have a fit pic of cigar linen or cream linen full suit? Need to make some important decisions.
