Hello! I am new to the forum. Without having to reread the entire thread, how does Spier and Mackay’s contemporary fit sportscoats fit compare to other brands? I am about 6 feet tall, 213lbs, and waist around 35”. I tend to have issues with most brands having too tight-fitting shoulders, chest, and biceps. For a recent bespoke jacket, 43.5” (actual chest as measured is 41.5) was used for the chest area. I have a bad shoulder and if jackets are too tight or have little range of motion , I tend to start to ache after a while. For reference, I have an over the the rack 42r regent fit brooks brothers jacket that is unbearably tight. Thanks!
Have you checked here to compare to your bespoke or preferred brand's sizing specs?

Are there any pictures in this thread where someone wears the Harris tweed Green check jacket? Considering buying it but would like to see some pics of it in the wild first.

Am considering the grey and brown check as well, but ideally I'd want one without the brown checks, consisting of only grey.

I have the same issue. I emailed @spiermackay last night to ask about the arm hole and bicep size in their 52R MTO suits. If their suits can't fit me I'll most likely meet up with WW Chan when they come in my area in March.

Hey Rick, @spiermackay @SpierTeam

I am trying to buy a MTM shirt, but when I add it to my cart it is doubling the $99 price or something wacko like that.

Here's the screen shot showing the 4 items and the total cost is way out of wack.

I've cleared cache and cookies already and emptied my cart and re-added them several times. How can I fix this?

usually clearing cashe works. Last ditch try in an incognito window. If that fails place the order, we'll refund the difference.

New site is done, in testing now. Should be ready to go first week of Feb. Should clear up the filters and all the weird stuff. If there is still weird stuff we can sort it quick as it's all custom code and not on any open source platform with multiple plugins causing an infinite number of conflicts.

Incognito worked. The new site will be welcomed by many.

Coral striped popover, commencing.

So, a case of "just because you can, doesn't mean you should".

The turnback cuffs I got made for my shirt are a pain to do up and so I rarely wear that shirt. They sure look cool though.

Is it possible to get rid of them? I assume a tailor could just chop off the excess fabric and stitch it up?
