    Would also appreciate if they offered polos that fits the bigger guys (equivalent to the 17 and 17 1/2 shirts in Contemporary). Maybe in a couple of years when they have a wider clientele base, who knows!

    We have
    We have a new group of polos just in finishing at the moment. A revised Shirt Collar and and a new button down collar version. Shirt collar we are now using non-woven interlining in the the collar to give it more support, so it stands up great. We dissected a really nice Cuccinelli polo with the same collar and discovered this was the trick.

    Colours are Black, Navy, Heather Gray, White, Crimson Red, Royal Blue, and Forest Green.

    Received a few different items from S&M today in the mail.

    First up is the blue wool/linen check suit. I really like everything about this suit. It's a great shade of blue with a nice, subtle pattern. The fabric is perfect and light in weight for summer with a nice drape without it being too light and thin, and the fit (38 slim for me) is spot on. I love the fact that the S&M suits are slightly longer in length than my regular SuSu suits which are about 1/2"-1" shorter in overall length than I would prefer. Overall, this is a great suit at an amazing price. Below is a quick picture that I snapped from my iPhone. I feel like this is a pretty good representation of the color (maybe not quite as dark as the pic but close).

    I also received white and blue summer oxfords. These, like all of my other slim S&M dress shirts, fit me almost perfectly. These are super soft and lighter in weight to make them perfect for the spring and summer. Awesome oxfords! I have dress shirts from Ledbury to Kamakura (which I really like) to Brooks Brothers and others, and the S&M dress shirts are right there with Kamakura (perhaps even better) as my favorite from an overall quality, fit, and cost standpoint.

    Finally, I received a white cotton polo with the shirt collar. The medium is a great fit, nice and snug without being too tight, and the material looks very good especially for the price. Another homerun, and I'll be purchasing more of these.

    Very cool! Grabbing a Green for sure.

    Any prototype pics of the redesigned collars?

    Fingers crossed for a substantial collar on the button down polo like this.

    Not that big. Gotta remember, most of of our customers are not SF guys. Venturing too far out of most peoples comfort zone results in dead stock. A button down on a polo is a stretch for most to begin with....

    This looks oversized to me. I'd rather see something like below - spread collar, french placket. The simpler, the better.

    Very nice -- I would also love long-sleeve polo shirts, but I guess it isn't a popular option.

    Haha good point. Sometimes I forget about the world outside of SF.

    That's really nice, I do think a little more spread on the normal ones would be cool too.

    Sure thing. I think it'll work perfectly as a stand alone sportcoat as well. I really like it.
