This is a good representation of the mint green for someone that was asking
Thanks for sharing. I was thinking about taking a flyer on the trousers (because the mint green is the only remaining flannel in my size), but it seems like it may be too light for a weekly staple. SM says this would pair with navy, but it seems like the gray or brown would need to be fairly dark. Not sure, for instance, if this year's gray Harris Tweed herringbone would pair well.

If your chest actually measures 39", a 38 Contemporary will fit you well. A 38 slim may also work, but could be too narrow - hold out for more advice.

For what it's worth, I'm 6'/172lbs (184cm/78kg) with a 39"-39.5" chest and a 38 Contemporary is perfect, but a 40 Slim was too large for me.
Im 6 1 170 lbs also trying to decide between 40 slim and 38 contemporary myself! I wear 40 Milano in Brooks Bros suiting. 🤔

Followup to my missing belt loops -- customer service said they're going to send me the belt loops and reimburse the cost of tailoring. I'll post new photos once I get it done.

Also I simultaneously can and cannot believe that Epstein-posting has crossed over into the SM thread

I'm basically you. I have been debating if I should go for a 38R in Contemporary or Slim. I wear 38R in all my SuitSupply suits (Napoli, Sienna, Havana). As of right now, I'm leaning towards the Contemporary from previous comments but still a little bit on the fence.

To those that think sweatshops don’t exist in First World countries:

Everywhere I look there are kids running around getting paid 2% commission to sell $500 ‘bespoke’ suits to consumers who don’t know any better.

Theres also that Starbucks barista guy that keeps putting a QUARTER of the syrup in my HALF sweet pumpkin spice latte. If I want a proper cortado, I’d obviously go somewhere more reputable... but it’s my right to cheat every now and then as long as my drink is made exactly as requested!

:mad:

sizing chart pretty much says it all. You’ll find that the slim has a light taper starting at the thigh and running all the way to the hem. It’s not a very slim fit like some brand out there, more of a “tailored” look that works well unless you’re on the heavier side or particularly athletic with bigger thighs and calves, in which case I’d recommend contemporary.

Wondering if the dieworkwear summer tweed cloth has proceeded to jackets and trouser production at this stage. Got a jacket made a couple of years ago and looking at a trouser in the cloth

Looking for advise on sizing for BOTTO GIUSEPPE trousers. I have S&M chinos in 33 Slim and they are a bit loose in the waist. I am deciding between 33 and 32 contemporary. Is it better to pick larger size and tighten up adjusters a bit?
