The fabric has to be machine washable first. Any wool would be a no go.

Also, for unstructured to be any good, the fabric itself should have good body. The Drago Wool/Linen is a good cloth to try it in.
Ah, my mistake, I've been in 90+ degree weather for over a week so I've forgotten wool exists... I did mean in a cotton. How do you think the Quest would hold up as an unstructured jacket getting washed on gentle cycle? I have a few older machine-washable summer suits that are unlined (but full canvas) that are great in the heat but it's impossible to find replacements, and I'd prefer them in SM neo cut.

lol....very glad this came up. I use the fly on my trousers, which then logic leads to using the fly on the underwear.

I recognize I'm in the extreme minority of this topic.
See, I open the fly of my pants and pull down the waistband of my briefs. Unless the inner button closure is too far to the left, that is. At that point, it feels like a maze and the trousers come undone.

100% agree here. Belt/waistband does not need to be undone. Unzip the fly, then use the underwear fly. I wouldn't buy a pair of underwear that was flyless.
Totally agree with this - why would you want do undo your belt, untuck your shirt, pull down the waistband, and then have to retuck everything?

I get it if you're not tucking in your shirt, but otherwise I really don't understand why you'd buy no fly underwear.

All of my underwear is horizontal fly at this point. No more mazes for me.

Can anyone provide some sizing advice on SM shoes? Has there been consensus on sizing up/down or going TTS?

@spiermackay Hello, just received two pairs of the slim fit linen trousers. Wondering how these break-in? I have several pairs of the slim fit and slim fit high rise in wool and the fit is great. As soon as I put on the linen trousers, first thought was too tight. Does the fabric give any over time? Right now I'm thinking I need to switch to the contemporary fit for the linens.

For an MTO summer sport coat (linen, seersucker, etc.), thoughts on going quarter lined vs unlined?

Did you get the high rise?

Not looking forward to the inevitable "does anyone have fit pics of the S&M underwear" posts.

Also, curious if they will be called S&M underwear. It may attract a different kind of clientele for you guys.
You know that's a great name. I see a marketing campaign already.

The Chappelle's Show "Trading Spouses" sketch is all that comes to my mind with all this fly on underwear talk.

I remember I saw someone drop their pants and underwear at a urinal once to their ankles, and all I saw was man ass.

After that day, I never questioned the usefulness of a fly again.
