So was it just this run of cavalry twills that were unusually slim? I got a 33 contemporary in both the cavalry twill and the flannel, both being my first S&M trousers, and they unfortunately slim. I'm usually a 31 inch waist, but work out extensively so I'm used to things not fitting exactly how I want them, but I thought both sizing up AND going contemporary would, worst case, be loose so that I could atleast taper them
Hmmm... yeh, seems so. The FW '19 drop of the calvary twills seemed to skew slim, even for contemporary. The rest of my contemporary trousers fit consistent except for those. Haven't taken them to the tailor so hopefully we can work with them.

I can also confirm the covert twill from last year are a little bit slimmer, especially considering they're "high rise" and pleated.

However, since the cavalry twill trousers you guys seem to be speaking of don't exist I would say those are infinitely slimmer.

Do any of you have any experience with letting S&M blazers out from the back seam? And trousers ?

Looks like the Marling & Evans FW cloth selections are now in the MTO section.

This might be my fav right now, loving the low gorge and one button cuffs. Other details on this one include Milanese buttonhole and extra shirring on the shoulders.

Looking good, such a great cloth! Way more windowpane patterns should take inspiration from this cloth

Ha! That's fair. Appreciate you keeping us on track with the different twills.

Oh boy, this might get out of hands for me.

How do you specify these things and what do S&M charge for the effort?

you can specify in the notes. If you go with full canvas the Milanese buttonhole is free when requested. No charges for the low gorge or extra shirring.

Thanks for quick reply. How are you finding the extra shirring on heavier cloths? I've only combined it with lighter, more casual summer cloths.

Is it me, or are quite a few seasonal MTO fabrics on sale?
Indeed they are, causing my wallet serious damage. That and @Burzan IG showing off all his SCs.
