Has anyone tried to move the top button slightly inwards for shirt that is tight around the neck? My neck is between 15 and 15.5 and I always kinda struggle with it. I'd like to move the button on my 15 SM shirt(shown below with top button closed) so that it loosen around my neck a bit but afraid the gap might get too bit when I wear a tie. Any experience would be welcomed.

You could always try something like a collar extender, they are temporary, but for a few bucks you can see what it will look like if you decide to make the permanent change.

The wool cotton blend trousers are amazing. I have both the mid gray and the light brown, and have used them numerous times. Light enough to be versatile for at least three seasons.
Absolutely agree, they are great trousers. Beautiful, comfortable, versatile.

I already had the mid gray ones and I liked them so much I ordered the light brown over the weekend, and I wish they had them in light gray.

Slowly building up my pocket square game!

I recently tacked on 2 S&M pocket squares on an order and was blown away. I never really put much thought into my pocket squares, however after seeing some posts on SF I decided to step it up. A couple of buddies bought me a cheap multi-pack off Amazon (if you're easily offended by cheap and tacky items, I would strongly advise against clicking on the spoiler :laugh:) but the difference in quality is night and day. The feel of the cloth and the way it folds and drapes is amazing.

I must applaud Rick and all others at Spier for their dedication to quality, even on the simplest items. Since I didn't want wait for Spier to restock on chinos, I bought some J. Crew chinos in the meantime. Now, I'm a menswear and clothing n00b, but Spier's chinos are of a far better quality and cut than J. Crew's. The fabric is thicker on the Spier chinos (though not uncomfortably so) and feels sturdier to the touch. Just glad I didn't pay full price for the J. Crew chinos.

A pocket square can be so cheap on sale at some places it is just a throw on item. I always look at the pocket squares before ordering at Granqvist or similar beforehand

Agree, the chinos are such nice material. I just received and washed my lightweight chinos and they are so incredibly thin for summer wear, I can tell they will be worn a bunch

I have a 44 chest too but 16 neck and can get away with Contemporary 16 or Slim 16.5 (doesn't look too big at the neck).
Hi there @Betelgeuse... you might know this. How much slimmer (or not) is SM’s extra slim than SuitSupply’s extra slim?

The green minnis fresco sportcoat is available for pre-orders for those of you interested.

I’m waiting on that Di Fabio double breasted sc. Even though my girlfriend keeps saying I’ll look like a sea captain wearing it :confused:
I have a very similar jacket (double breasted, peak lapel, with that horizontal ribbed pattern), and it works really well casually. Shown below, with one where you can better see the texture. It’s a very casual jacket and I often reach for it more than the traditional navy blazer. I almost never wear it closed even though it’s double breasted because the voluminous lapels roll really nicely and create a really nice effect on their own.
