@spiermackay / @SpierTeam - For your high rise contemporary trousers, how many inches could be taken in at the waist. For example, size 32 has a waist size of 33.5. Would I be able to take in 1.5 inches at the waist?
You can, and I do. But, be prepared for pocket flare or folds in the crotch or on the side seams. Flaws are inevitable unless you go MTO/MTM. I’ve learned to accept the imperfections, as it suits my financial capabilities.

suggestion to get this cloth for MTO or even RTW in advance. it's a super cool e. thomas wool silk linen houndstooth. I found it on the ss website but I prefer spier (SS you can't even change measurements in mto unless you have a retail store nearby) it seems heavy for a spring-summer designated cloth but very interesting.
The details are
779301/1
72% Wool, 14% Silk, 14% Linen
330gr/m^2

Wearing my new fox air green trousers today for the first time. Will try and post a fit pic later, but I definitely like them.

Also, fun fact...it was only 10 minutes into the day at the office before someone asked me if I forgot my belt. :sarcasm:

Looking forward to pics.

Did you ask them if they forgot their waist measurement?

I love these shirts, but if I had one thing to nitpick, its that the cuffs are SO. DAMN. NARROW. I could maaaaaaybe get a true dress watch under there (something like a Cartier tank or JLC MUT), but I'm wearing a Seamaster today and have to wear that cuff unbuttoned.

Edit: yeah, not a chance-

I feel like the cuff has always been a problem and the button is always at the edge of the cuff so you cannot reposition it unless you want to go narrower. I wear most of my S&M shirts with the cuff unbottoned because of this as there is an army of supporters that the whole cuff situation is fine as is.
