I really want to try Spier's tuxes, but I see many of them do not come with the satin striped trousers. I wonder why. For those who own Spier tuxes, how are they?
I would love to own one but have never had a need for one in my 30+ years existence. Is it because I'm not a movie star (yet?) :p

Looks good. Looks like a contemporary on you though especially in the rise.
I got a slim 33 (blue, gray and tempted to get olive.. or rust now) and I'm in between sizes it seems. looking at the size chart maybe I'm tempted on contemporary although in the past contemporary fit in found way to roomy but here I could do with more room in thighs.
Beautiful fabric though! Much prefer rust than orange, much more versatile and toned down. Keep it!


rust donegal in slim 30, wished it was more brighter and orange irl so not sure if keeping. Plus with covid it might be awhile for me to get it altered. But besides hemming any other changes recommended?

Strange coincidence. I've been eyeing this one for a while, specifically for a spring/summer sport coat. The price is really phenomenal.

I liked it so much that I just ordered it MTO today with the 15% off. I was back and forth between getting a full suit and just a sport coat, but ultimately opted for the sport coat only as I wasn't sure how the fabric would hold up for trousers.

Happy to share pics when it comes in in 6-8 weeks.
Great decision. Looking forward to your pics. Having slept on it, I've decided it's unique enough and separates itself from my current jackets. Most likely going to place an order for it myself today.

I think it's a great move. The color scheme (simple tan, brown and blue/navy) in the pattern will lend itself to every combo.

It's so tough with these swatch pics but I *think* the pattern is small enough that it mostly resolves to solid from a short distance. As I only wear jackets in the business casual work environment, I thought it would be a bit more formal of a sport coat than some of the other larger houndstooth patterns.

Judging by the swatches and the fact it's called 'micro', it should at least be half the size of the houndstooth currently offered RTW. It should be close in scale to what Riva posted.

EDIT
Order placed for the brown micro houndstooth 10278-059/5-MTO-J. At $340 for MTO it was to good of a deal to pass up on.

The navy/brown micro houndstooth looks to be the same fabric that was run OTR for a 3-piece suit last year that I had been eyeing up. There were still a few pairs of pants separates available on the site until recently but it looks like they are sold at this point. Google pointed me to this blog, and while you can't zoom in to see the detail, it should give you a good sense of the scale.

Thanks. That is a great looking suit and further confirms my belief that it'll make a great sport coat. I actually believe it'll look even better as a somewhat less formal jacket featuring patch hip pockets compared to the one in the link.

Yeap Zignone red check full canvas at $465 is a pretty damn good deal for almost bespoke-like (to me) MTO.
