    Contemporary fit looked perfect, Burzan! Looked trim and comfortable, not baggy or too skinny. Perfect silhouette to pair with an SC

    She said they look fine from the front but the back looked very shapeless and the seat was not flattering at all on me. I think she's not used to seeing me in a more traditional looking fit. If I wre any sport coats I would agree with you but maybe in this case the style is just too far removed from my current style preference.

    Altering could possibly be an option but we'll see what the slims are like.

    Here is a pic of J Crew Bowery slims on me, these have about an inch less leg opening (.5" flat), lower rise, and a more trim profile over the Contemporary. This is more along the lines of a typical fit for me.

    LMAO, pretty much.

    The slim fit isn't that slim anyway, if you can fit into it, it will be business appropriate.

    @Burzan - I have the same issue. Anything not-slim is way too baggy in the seat/crotch/back of the thighs, but in the mid-thigh area I could always use some extra room. I too considered the contemp fit but the slim is already loose-ish in the seat/rise area so its a no-go without serious alterations.

    I just live with the very slim-look in the thighs even though I always wish I could have an extra inch or so. Contemporary would have too much room elsewhere, just as it does for you.

    Sounds just like me indeed, I am optimistic in the slim fit now because I would really love to keep these flannels, they are just too awesome.




    PS to everyone, looks like the new jackets are up online if anyone is itching to jump on them.

    Hi Rick,

    It looks like there won't be any 36S for slim sportcoats...?

    Blue hopsack or herringbone sportcoat? Can't decide!

    I just received the following e-mail from Spier & Mackay:

    “Pre-Order our New Fall Suits.
    Produced with our new Partner Factory Associated with the Legendary Zegna.
    The wait is almost over. Our new Seasonal Fall suits are on the way. Order yours today and save. Excellent weights and textures to truly make your cool weather look razor sharp. 6 new suits and 6 new sportcoats to help ward off the cold in style.
    This delivery marks our first group of suits produced under the watchful eye of the Masterful Italian Suitmaker Zegna. Our excellent quality suiting just got better.”

    However, clicking on any of the links in the e-mail simply takes one to S & M’s usual suit page. What is the correct link to the 6 suits and 6 sport coats pre-order?

    Thanks.

    Cheers,

    Ac

    The new suits are on the regular page. They should be sorted by default to newest first and those top ones are the new ones from the new factory, same with the sportcoats.

    Thanks.

    So the only thing identifying the new ones available for pre-order is that they're listed first? Bizarre.

    Cheers,

    If this is true, by the way, then apparently they're only available in slim fit.

    Cheers,

    The thumbnail says both "new" and "sale" and it's listed as Pre-Order in the description.

    What you can do is measure out the thigh on your J.crew and compare to the size chart. That will give you a good idea of how it will fit through the leg.

    Anyone know how the SM slim fit trousers compare to bonobos slim fit weekday warriors? Doubt anyone has both, but thought it would be worth asking

    Best thing to do is compare measurements. That will give you a decent idea. Measure the pants you have and compare them to our size charts,
