Took my sports coat to tailor because it's too tight now, and he said there is some fabric to let out of the armhole and he will increase the entire back.

Hopeful and curious to see how this turns out.
Is he increasing the armhole? Or just letting fabric out of there to increase width of the upper back?

You never know until you try. They are very comfortable and visually interesting. A lot of people think they are too out there for them, but if you're worried about sticking out, don't be. The masses don't even notice.
I get where you're coming from, but the majority of S&M's customers are not #menswear geeks. Didn't I read that S&M is not going to offer their Neapolitan cut in RTW suits (only MTO) because they didn't sell well? If they can't sell that to their mainstream customers, forget trying to sell gurkha trousers to them.

Has anyone gone through and can comment on going through MTO/MTM for trousers (or anything I guess) via email/pictures?

MTM high rise khakis. Absolutely nailed the fit but that is what you expect with @induere_to taking measurements. If you are local to Toronto or do visit Toronto booking a fitting with Mr. Hanchett is a no brainer!!
Spier/ Mr. Hanchett LEGIT!!

I'm just not SF enough, I'll stick with belt loops, standard rise.

Wearing the pea coat today, I like that the hand warmer pockets are actually decently sized so you can fit your hands in with gloves on. It was 15F this morning and I wished I had layered on a wool sweater. For me only being 5'8" it's long for a pea coat but I like it that way. I'll need to have about 3 inches taken off the sleeves I just have them folded over and stitched temporarily for now. I'll get it altered after winter is over.

Does anyone know if you can get suede or leather sleeves shortened. I tried to stitch up a suede jacket and couldn't get the need through. Not sure a tailor would have the tools for it who handles that sort of thing?

You definitely can. I've had leather sleeves shortened and even slimmed. A good tailor can do it. I suggest finding an old Italian lady. It's pricey, though.

Wow. I never thought about this. Can anyone comment if increasing the armhole is possible or is it more of the ladder?
