The shine comes from the Extra Long Staple cotton used. It's similar to Pima and is a little more polished. It does go away in the wash. We are thinking to garment wash them on the next run.

As far as feeling broken in from the get go, as compared to say a Uniqlo, they use a lighter weight terry and peach it slightly. I think you can tell the weight difference between the two. We use a very dense knit. I'm contemplating of going to a slightly lighter knit as it seems most in this market segment want that out of the box softness. If you compare to better brands like RC, they are not overly treated. They need a slight break in period and that's what we wanted but at a better price.

We are planning on more basics and staples done the SPIER & MACKAY way. Quality driven/Value priced.
I first was drawn to your brand because of the sport coats, trousers and dress shirts.

But starting with COVID and it looks like on an ongoing basis I'll need very little more formal options (still appreciate you offering what you do when I need it!) and have been drawn to the polished yet more casual offerings. You guys are doing great with this.

The I love buying too much outerwear and I'd love to see more. Maybe a suede field jacket? I might get an A1 but I'm not much of a trucker guy.

But I'd love to see you keep it up with sweatshirts, sweaters... and I know denim is coming. I trust you'll do this well.

Other casual basics I'd like are socks and high quality thick t-shirts. The shirts you had before were the only s&m item I didn't like. I prefer a thick, beefy t-shirt. And maybe some quality basic merino socks in basic colors?

Oh yeah and I'm looking forward to mto outerwear. I missed on the green double breasted overcoat a couple years back and it is haunting me.

Anyone interested in 100% Cashmere sportcoat from Di Pray in MTO? It's as lux as you can get. Proper investment piece that will last. We're thinking in a solid navy twill.

We can offer it at $698 USD in MTO. Pretty ridiculous price. But we have to buy up a full roll and would only be able to make 20 jackets.
I’d buy one.

The belt loop on the high rise extended waistband trousers needs to move closer to the button like they used to be. I noticed on my F/W cords and Fresco that the loop is now in an awkward placement. Not sure if that’s a new intentional thing
Noticed On My Blue Seersukers, Needs To Be Moved Closer To Button!

It's a FW 290 gsm weight.. 100% cashmere at any weight is too warm for Spring/summer. Looking a solid navy twill. Looks like a serge cloth visually. Standard navy blazer, but feels bloody stellar.

I am also interested in the denim progress. I don't mind my Naked & Famous, but I am sure @spiermackay will rock it out of the park

Update on the Suedes:

Price will be Approx. $598 USD. The quality of the suede is pretty damn impressive.

Any interest at that price? Lowering the price means shittier suede. No one wants that.
Is this going to finally be the Safucker jacket I've been waiting for?

Would love to see high quality white and off white t-shirts.

No complaints about the sweatshirts, the current model. However, if you're gonna change it. I can hold out for the new version. ;) I was planning on buying the Grey and navy ones to add since I'm very happy with my black.

I actually wear the sweatshirt alot since I'm WFH. Don't mess with the sizing though. First gen the medium is tight and now this current gen the medium has room. I could technically wear a smaller size but I wouldn't be able to layer.

They don't sell those anymore. I went in store before the lowdown and all they had were slim fits. On the website there is ez fit, but never tried those jeans. Just want dark wash.

That's a very reasonable price. I'd be in.

Any possibility for MTO? I'm shorter (5'6"), and find RTW casual jackets run a little long on me.
Not out of the gate. I'm 5'7" prefer a short in the sportcoats myself. That said, both styles are hip lenth to start, so work fine even on shorter guys.

If you can make a size US 54 I'd be interested.
