not itchy in my case and I would call it all weather .. of course, the material is thinner and on some winter days, it’s not a bad thing:)
hmm awesome.

what about windy winter days though, wouldn't that icy chill cut right through?

Overcoat comes in handy..

my office staff tends to crank up the heat on frosty winter days and on those days, airy winter fabrics are welcome :)
oooh ok, I understand now.

90% of places here overheat too and I naturally run hot, even in winter

hmm you've got me tempted now.

Got my MTO trousers. Pics forthcoming but off the bat noticed four things - 1) similar wrinkling like @vriche had near the zipper; 2) overall length is 1.5" shorter than spec; 3) asked for side tabs on the waistband seam, not the waistband, but not done as asked; 4) no loop for the extended waistband.

A few minor things need to get tighten up with MTO. It looks like there may be a few glitches but I’m confident they’ll be ironed out.

Wondering if anyone had any interest in the VBC Flannel Black and White Houndsooth Sportscoat in 42R Contemporary Neopolitan V2 cut with no alterations. Only worn twice (both times less then two hours) and kept in garment bag on proper wide shoulder wooden hanger. Think I paid $240 or something during a sale but just wanting to make $140, to buy a 42L contemporary jacket from Spier off eBay or put towards another one. I wish I could find it in a 42L Contemporary. Someone was selling the suit on eBay last week and I snoozed and it sold :/. Would also trade for the 42L contemporary. Thanks guys!

Agreed. I was a little surprised by the length issue - 1.5" is definitely not due to factory variation. Messes up the trousers because I had a 2" cuff (double forward pleated) and now not sure if there is enough material to lengthen and keep a smaller cuff.

I actually wonder if diff factories are doing jackets and trousers. All the glitches seem to be on the trouser side - every jacket I've seen (including my own) have been top notch!

Yeah, that sounds like you possibly need a total remake

@vriche how'd your tailor clean up the front?

I see what you mean. Unfortunately, I've been so busy that I haven't had a chance to go see him yet, he's about 30 minutes from me. Also, I'm waiting to get the final word from Rick before doing anything on my end.

Hi guys are the buttons functional on S&M RTW sportscoats and blazers?

Also do they simply not stock 40 shorts in slim cuts? Could anyone post a comparison of the two cuts
