Regarding the sweatshirts. I have the first run and the sleeves are too short. I'm 5'10 and wear 32 inch sleeves mostly.

I still wear it however. If feedback is positive for the upcoming rumored new versions, I'll grab them next year. I'll have to give banana republic or uniqlo a shot

I am curious if Rick is actually going to be bringing these back. I feel like it would be worth it, especially in these WFH times

Any real-life views of the new cord jacket or trousers out there? The cloth supplier's photograph of the fabric looks darker than the SM product photos, so not sure which is the closer representation.

Originally went with a medium sweat shirt, was way too small and exchanged for a large (and still, it's a bit snug)

I had gotten the charcoal and noticed the pockets had white stitching exposed all around and thought it was defect, but after asking support they mentioned that was just how the product was and linked me this site. I wear hoodies maybe twice a year, and it was on sale + discount so I just tacked it onto another order and can't really complain.

I am 3” taller than you, and got a small also. Was very slim, but liked it. Ended up getting a Medium for exclusively house wear during these times as it is looser fitting and more comfortable
I went large so that if it ever got tossed in dryer I'd still have something wearable. Yes, an odd set of sizing for their hoodies.

Yeah, it's weird how the white yarn shows through only on the pockets and not on any of the other seams. If it's not deliberate then it's a very consistent error, which is remarkable in itself.

You must have missed them bud.
You don't post fits, seeing as how it's been well over a year since you've even posted in the main "WAYWT" thread - not a fit, I might add. And I didn't miss them. I saw you get dunked on, time and time again. So, it is curious as to why you stopped.

Seriously Riva. Your name is so synonymous with hilariously bad taste on this site that it's a bit rich to start criticising others at this point.
This being one of my favorite responses to your "expertise".

Ok I was being a douche on wheels there. Riva can be a dick too, but nowadays I take more of a live and let live approach. Namaste.

So just to be clear; discussing the fit of a Spier Mackay garment that was posted in the Spier Mackay affiliate thread is in bad taste, but having a discussion such as above in the Spier Mackay affiliate thread, which has nothing to do with Spier Mackay garments is in good taste and doesn't detract from the affiliate's products? Got it.

Where are those members that defended the "principled" stance of some other members so vehemently yesterday? Nowhere to be seen.

Goes to show what the problem actually was yesterday. Hypocrisy at its best.

Move on gentlemen. Especially those of you that took such a principled stance yesterday.
