A quick shoulder question: When ordering MTO is it possible to order a jacket with spalla a camicia shoulders but without any shirring?
Yes, ask for "No Shoulder Shirring" in the notes

@spiermackay ive been asking for this for like 2 years now and I know it’s expensive but any chance of sourcing Magee and /or Molloy tweed when MTO outerwear hits?
Magee yes. I know we can get full rolls, but I have to find out about cut lengths.

Edit: We can get cuts. Will try to add McGee outerwear for Fall MTO overcoats.

Wool shirt fabrics?? Take my money, some nice wool shirts (hopefully flannel) finally
Not wool flannel. These are refined, worsted wools, in dress shirt weights. Pretty awesome fabric. Have a lot of great qualities, such as natural stretch, anti-bacterial, odor-resistant, highly breathable and wrinkle resistant, all without added chemical treatments.

I'll be readying my bank account... If it's mainly thick flannel I'll definitely purchase a couple. If you have some plain woven, open weave wools I'll be in for many more...
We have some medium weight flannel coming. Great for layering. Working on getting some heavy weight flannels too.

Any chance of some denims in the MTM section? It’d be great to have an option other than PC for some MTO denim shirts.
I've mentioned this a few times. Denim can be arranged, but you won't get the hi/low effect on the seams if we just do cut/sew. Without that effect the shirt looks a bit dull.

The other option is do what PC does and open MTM denim to an order window, collect all orders and and do a group wash.

sizing question for @spiermackay (but also anyone who has experience with them)- on last season's linen popovers that are on the site now, is there a sizing difference between those and this year's offerings? For example, I bought two from this year in size 15 Slim and they fit perfect (but with little room for error). On the popover size chart, a 15 slim has a 42.5" chest and a 38.5" waist, but when looking at the chart for last year's shirts, those measurements translate to a 15 1/2 slim. Do I need to size up or is the size chart incorrect?
Good question. Honestly, I forget what we did last year. I know for popovers, we add 1" to the torso measurements. I know one season, the factory added 1" to the HALF, which ended up being 2" total. Can't remember if that was last year or the year before.....I'll have to check.

@spiermackay

Back on the underwear discussion; it seems like anytime someone posts/buys "cream" trousers there are several other posters who either ask about the opacity or claim it's too much to get past.

I've dabbled in the dark arts of men's "flesh-toned" underwear. I was surprised Uniqlo didn't make any, and the options on Amazon and elsewhere are... at best not great, and worst nearly pornographic.

An S&M flesh-tone boxer-brief may not be the underwear we want, but the underwear we need.

(understood there are a range of flesh tones, but many female underwear brands address these opportunities)
Good question. First, any very light coloured trouesrs unless it's crazy thick has some amount of transparancy. No getting around that.

Light gray is generally the default option as it does the best job. Flesh colour is a solution, but a tricky one, precisely because of the range of colours that are needed. Much larger investment then we dare try.

Fingers crossed for Weba merino. It is incredibly nice.

Just received the quest cotton trousers. Look and feel great. Question for @spiermackay , given the polished finish, any tips on pressing these? Simple pressing cloth at low heat should do the trick? I have had back luck with pressing the cotton/linen trousers in the past...
Yeah. And a lot of steam.

We're starting with Weba Non-Irons. They are the best in the business with their pre-cure treatment. Great hand, 50+ wash cycles. A little pricey. But Swiss made and great investment.

@spiermackay Was an "in-store/curbside pickup" option supposed to be added to the checkout process at some point in time?

This must have been added recently, but grabbed a pair of the Wheat Linens on final sale. Colour looks great in the photos. Anybody have any pics?


We already got 3r2, solid collar rolls, seersucker. High rise flat front chinos are on the way. Just need some classic blackwatch and patchwork madras added to the MTO!
