Is there a sale code that’s active at the moment, or planned soon? Can’t seem to get back on the newsletters..
I've never gotten a newsletter despite signing up over and over and over

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
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.

If I'm really unhappy I could return it, but it would be a shame shipping it all the way to Europe just to ship it back, I'm not sure if I want to risk paying twice for customs and shipping. Maybe I'll go with SS until Spier and Mackay (hopefully) set foot in Europe.

It's good to have someone to compare to though.

Does anyone want to convince me not to buy 3 pairs of the fresco trousers? Lol

Lol. The pant size I wanted in the suit that I bought from the sale isn't available so they are asking me what to do. I'm thinking cancel the suit and order the fresco pants and/or hopsack blazer. Just wanted a suit for special occasions even though for myself nowadays I get by very well wearing sport coats...

I was considering the Drago sportcoat in the light color but it's sold out now in my size and truthfully I already have like 4 light coloured greyish sportcoats so I'm well stocked in that regard.

Go for it. I'm looking at 3 myself, and already have 4 from the last two years!
Great work day summer trousers.

You 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.

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 option

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.
