    Appreciate the advice Rick, that's what I was leaning toward but wasn't sure what the hip sizing would be. Is the hip easy to take in if needed? Where is that done?

    Ordered every color, hoping with some minor alterations they could be ideal.

    I've just pre-ordered a couple pairs of the new khakis. Thanks for adding back size 30 in the contemporary fit!

    Rick @spiermackay, I was wondering when will the popovers (madras and linen) be released? I recall you said around the end of April.

    Reason: I'd like to order your new Contemporary khakis to try the fit and sizing but I wonder if I should wait for the popovers to drop before ordering, as to combine shipping. Could you hold a pair of khaki for me in the meantime?

    Thanks!

    What about the rise? Is the rise longer in the contemporary fit chinos?

    HI @spiermackay, I'm planning on visiting the GTA in the summer and I intend to visit the shop and grab a jacket if not a suit. Which of the two showrooms is larger?

    Gents,

    I just received my first Spier & Mackay sportcoat and would appreciate your thoughts on how it fits. I definitely need to bring up the sleeves, but how does everything else look? Please ignore the mismatched shirt - I was excited to try the jacket out. Thanks in advance.

    Looks pretty good, I think your situation is similar to mine, in that only going MTM or bespoke is going to be able to solve the issues you have. For example, your right shoulder is fairly significantly dropped, which is probably what's causing that shoulder pad to have a slight divot when viewed from the side. Also, it's causing the jacket to twist around your torso (you can see the back seam doesn't run down the center of your back, but towards your right). FWIW, that's a pretty good fit for RTW, all things considered.

    Any idea when the grenadine ties will come out?

    From the front view, it looks like the neck line is pretty large and may create collar gap when wearing a tie. Might want to check that out and see if you need to get the collar cut down.

    Rick, any updates on that gun check sportcoat from a month or two back?

    Is hip a straight forward alteration on the chinos with the new construction? I measure 39" and the 32 contemp is 42" so I suspect that is going to be way too big.

    I'm not sure you can alter any chinos to make them hip. That's what skinny jeans are for.

    (Tongue firmly in cheek, as that's pretty much all I wear all summer :)

    Do you mean your actual hip measurement is 39"? You wouldn't want the pant measurement to be exactly the same as your body, as it would feel tight. I don't know that 3" is too much (being able to pinch 1.5" on each side) besides, wouldn't the waist measurement be more important since that's what keeps them up?

    39" is my actual hip measurement and Rick recently mentioned they suggest around 1.5" extra for comfort in that area. So 3" extra will likely be loose and give sag in the seat.

    I'll wash up one pair when they arrive and see but just planning ahead because if I need to hem, taper, and have the hip adjusted at the tailor then price wise It might make more sense to wait until some cotton fabrics are available for custom.

    1.5 would be the minimum. 2" is Ideal for a "slim" fit". 3" is good for a relaxed fit. But the seam at the seat can be adjusted and a good tailor shouldn't have an issue taking that in 1".

    That won't be ready to go until Fall. It's a thick, coarse tweed. Very warm.

    We don't have any plans for grenadine ties at the moment. There are already some great affordable options on the market. Chipp Neckwear comes to mind.

    It looks like there is a balance issue (which could be caused by a number of things, none of which I am qualified to speak to). In a jacket which is balanced, any vertical lines, such as those created by the herringbone, would be going straight up and down. On this jacket, they are slanting inward. You can also see this in the patch pockets.

    It also might be that you are standing unnaturally straight in the picture. Button the jacket and stand in front of a mirror as you normally stand. If the vertical lines are straight up and down, then no worries.

    Just uploaded the rinsed denim, some great chambray shirts, like the chambray madras we had on IG as well as the first group of linen. This stuff will be here this week and set to ship by May 8th.

    Is that white chambray available for MTM?
