I was requesting the jacket as a SC and not as part of a suit. Eventhough I haven't yet purchased a suit from S&M, I doubt the RTW suits will ever fit me since I'm a drop 8-10 normally bordering to 12 if I pick up training. RTW suits are drop 6.
If the trouser is in stock at time of ordering and you leave a note, they will accommodate the other trouser. So, say you take a 42R jacket and need a 32 pant, they will give you the 32 pant if in stock and left in notes. Unless this has changed recently

Unsure if you're aware, bit you can mix and match jackets/trousers, provided they have the standalone pantaloons in your size. I'm around a drop 10-12 depending on time of year, and I've had great experiences swapping out trousers for more reasonably sized ones.
Ya, what @XxLogo said lol.

Did not know that until recently. I thought the standard drop 6 was fixed.

Not sure though I want to go through the whole process of trial and error with the trousers given that I reside in Europe. Shipping back and forth is a real pain. But this piece of info has definitely made me at least consider it.

How roomy are the RTW suit trousers in the seat? I usually require more room in the seat area because of a larger bum due to training.

I'm almost certain I would need to go the MTO route. Do they have some kind of trial program where they can send out trial trousers for different sizes so that you can suggest changes to an existing size? Or do I have to take a chance and purchase a whole suit and hope it fits otherwise resell it and try again with alterations added for the next order?

So, could anyone provide measurements for the back rise including waistband for the high rise trousers contemporary cut for sizes 32/33/34?


Now that I know that you can mix and match suit trousers/jackets in terms of size, is it also possible to order a slim suit jacket but contemporary trousers?

Man, those coloured flecks get me every time, seem much more vivid in your photos than on the S&M website. Wonder what the other FW Bottle colours look like, don't think I've seen the brown or green yet.

As @JayDee90 said, yea you should be able to mix and match contemp/slim SC and Trousers as needed. If you also need measurements, can always email CS!

Cheers! @afterthesuit has the brown version from when it was first released in 2018, check out his IG page for some great pics.

It was a common strategy that was advocated here to size up on pants and take in the waist for a more forgiving fit for the seat/thighs. So you could try going for a drop 8 instead of 10.

For the cotton chinos anybody know what size to order? Same as suit trousers? Or should I account for shrinkage and go up a size in the waist or go from slim -> contemporary? I normally do a 33 slim in S&M suit trousers.

Also any insights into which of the ties would be great to go on for solid staples? I don't wear ties on a regular basis (ie. outside of work) but I'm a young physician about to spend a lot of the next few years in clinic, so shirt + tie at least 3 days a week.
