If I'm a 38 slim jacket, would I wear a small or medium sweater?

has anybody done an mtm shirt where you send in a shirt and have them copy its design?

not the measurements, but the design.

i've got a shirt i'd love to have completely copied top to bottom in design, but made with the measurements i'd specify. curious if anybody has tried anything like this and what it cost.
So like a Brooks Brothers shirt with the 6 pleat shirring? This is a very intriguing option... I have no knowledge of this, though. I'm interested to hear opinions/experience.

Same question. I almost pulled the trigger on these yesterday and then the gray flannel restock email hit last night and I couldn't order those fast enough. Wondering how similar they are in the wild?
I have the mint green jacket. It does look a bit grey in certain lighting.

I’ll agree on the belt loops being an issue, but even if the SKU is the same, there can be variation in different dye lots. The mid gray VBC jacket from last year that S&M accidentally sent me was a slightly different shade than the mid gray of this year’s pants, even though the fabric was the same. I wouldnt be upset about the variation unless it was specifically advertised as suit separates.
Hmm that makes sense to me.

I didn't even think or know about batch variations, and I'd wager the average consumer doesn't either.

It's reasonable to expect some kind of heads up from customer service before putting the order through if someone orders the same SKUs for trousers and a jacket.

I'd have expected the fabrics to be the same from chomsky's POV as well.

Would you stop buying from Spier and Mackay if it was Nike like? :devil:
Awwwww shit, the big guns are out.

Ideally, yes.

Realistically....err probably not. At least not for the next 3 years, no job at the moment.

If/when I get a proper job with a decent income, then I'd likely fully switch to my local tailor who is more expensive, but is still a good value.

Agreed, but the shirt collar as depicted in his photos would indicate that it is too large.
Thanks for pointing that out. I have been wearing the wrong size this whole time 😳. I’m going to exchange them for 1/2 smaller. I’m just not sure if I should go for the 15.5 in the Extra Slim or go down to the Slim. I’m just afraid that being on the border of the recommenced chest size of 39.5 Extra Slim might be tight. Any advice guys?
