Those are not stock cloths unfortunately, they are woven to order, minimum order quantity is 60m I believe.Considering having Spier Mackay making a jacket for me but undecided on pattern. The PoW seems more subtle while the gun check shows more of the brown colour and hence offsets some of the versatility advantage the PoW has on the gun check due to its subtility. Suggestions (rest of wardrobe not considered)?

Oh, I did not know that. When I placed an order for a couple of M&E fabrics last year with Haris, S&M's MTO coordinator he told me they could source all fabrics from the former. Maybe those limited with a minimum order are an exception. I'll check with him. Thanks.Those are not stock cloths unfortunately, they are woven to order, minimum order quantity is 60m I believe.
That's right, just as long as they are part of the M&E stock collection - those can be purchased by the metre.Oh, I did not know that.

Also, I saw a couple of pages back that the hemming service and hem guards were discussed. S&M will provide hem guards for an added $10 if you ask for it in the notes.
It really depends on what you consider regular cotton. In comparison to cotton used for standard chinos, the quest cotton is definitely finer and smoother, and has a more luxurious feel. It has a decent drape and it holds the creases quite well.
I had a pair of their black plain toe oxfords. They where very good. Sold them because I went with the wrong size. Don't know if they are new by CS. But I will say that they are a great shoe for the money.Curious about their shoes (which are now on sale).
Says they are made in Portugal, are they from Carlos Santos ?
I'm looking for a fairly standard black oxford and perhaps another suede loafer. Anyone here tried their shoes?
I received two linen field jackets today, and I'm so disappointed by the absurdly low armholes. Why are they cut like this? They're low to the point where it doesn't just feel restricting and awkward to wear, but it throws off the whole look of the jacket as well. The front chest area ends up looking strange and disproportionate when the armhole extends halfway down my ribcage. Looks like I'm wearing a jacket cut for someone a foot taller, and had the sleeve and body lengths altered to kind of make it work.
The wool field jackets from the previous season fits me almost perfectly, so this is such a bummer. I got curious, so I compared the armhole on the natural linen field jacket to some other S&M jackets/outerwear. The armhole on a size 36 linen field jacket is 3 cm lower than on a size 38 winter overcoat (measured from the shoulder to the armpit laying flat). Why?! The wool field jackets in the equivalent size (XS) also have 3 cm higher armholes.
Luckily the navy linen one isn't as bad. The armholes are 2 cm higher on it compared to the natural linen (which is still much lower than ideal, but doesn't look as ridiculous). Am I unreasonable for thinking that this is an unacceptable production tolerance? A 2 cm variation between waist or chest measurements on a casual jacket is one thing. Quite another for armhole height...
Sorry for the rant. I've been looking forward to the linen versions ever since they released the wool field jackets, so to have them ruined by something like this is quite deflating. They're so well designed otherwise, and the linen fabric feels great for a summer jacket.
I ordered the same color (38 for me). It’s supposed to come in today, I’m very curious to see what I think of the fit/armholes based on some of the comments.
