I'll hold off on reaching out to Rick but I'll keep an eye on this thread to see what others' experiences are like.

How do spier sizes compare to Suit supply? Are they pretty much the same?

Just received my first ever sport coat from S&M. Ignoring the casual wear underneath and the poor lighting, what do you all think of the fit?

I am fairly happy with it overall and imagine I'd be even more pleased after slight alterations. I think the body could be slimmed a tad.

Thank you!

Looks great on you, and agree you can slim the body a bit.

All the sale sport coats, for ex. were $149 and now they are $199 and up (some even $279!!). You can take 20% off, but they are still higher than previously even with the discount
The liquidation sale that you are most likely referring to on the clearance jackets was a limited time affair and was clearly advertised to end before the Black Friday sale started.

Ok - I'm not really a big S&M buyer, so not really up on the brand, however, thought it was odd that they would raise prices for black friday

Has anyone machine washed your covert trousers? it says dry clean only, but wondering if hand or machine washing will be that terrible.

To summarize - they ran a liquidation sale on suits and sportscoats mid-month that were most likely odd sizes left over from other sales they've been forced, like most other companies during this climate, to hold to turn over inventory.

Having to raise prices back on those particular items just signals that the margins are already extremely thin.

It makes sense that the BF discount doesn't stack on those prices and to be honest as much as we all appreciate a great deal (or steal) most of us in this thread don't want to see Rick have to resort to that to survive.

Not to beat this to death--as I am not even buying anything--I'm not suggesting he lower his prices further (hence no stacking), but to raise them just seemed odd to me as a marketing technique. At least keep the same prices lol
