Thank you for the advice. I'm also considering Suit Supply, but I like the cut of Spier and Mackay more, especially the lapels and shoulders, as you've also said yourself.I'm a little smaller than you (186cm), but comparably slim. (95 breast but 79cm waist)
I got the 38L contemporary and it takes some time to get used to. My wardrobe mostly is 38L from suitsupply, and they are more tailored and slimmer, maybe that's a better call for your taste fit wise.
I personally do like the slightly extended shoulder, lower buttoning stance and those gorgeous lapels more than a snugger fit. Bad thing is, I need to change my trousers to be a little wider so that it doesnt look off.
I think if you have taken in the waist on a 38L contemporary a tiny bit you will be happy
Finally got these to a tailor and they didn't think there was enough fabric to let the seat out @spiermackay I guess MTM is my next optionYou have forward hips. Most OTR are cut straight. You need to have a good tailor reduce the back rise from the waistband. That will lift all the cloth at the back of your leg and relax the crotch at the back seam. A good tailor will be able to pin it up first to show you before they actually do the work.
The alternative is MTM. MTO can't adjust for this.

I just ordered the two browns, 2x of the new cotton dress trousers, and the neo hopsack. Really wanted 2-3 more of the fresco trousers and 2-3 of the new sport coats but had to restrain myself. I'm about to get axe murdered by tax season so have to be wary of that.Does anyone want to convince me not to buy 3 pairs of the fresco trousers? Lol
