Hi @spiermackay
Your short sleeved linen shirts look short, in the photos.
But the size/fit chart for them (in my size) shows standard dress shirt length.
Do they have the shorter 'untucked' length or are they standard length ?
The short sleeves are untucked. I'll have to check on that.

Yo, if y’all didn’t get the cigar linen suit separates a couple years ago, get this redo. I love mine and wear it a lot, but that wasn’t always the case. I only bought it because I was settling, after missing out on the tobacco. When I first got it, the color intimidated me. I really only wore them as SC and trousers. Once I got over that, it became clear how versatile it is and how easy it is to make it sing. If you were hesitant at all for this reason, don’t be.

@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. Waist no problem. Seat is ok too, depending on how much you're bringing that in. But 1.5" shouldn't be an issue.

There are 2 popovers listed on the site, one "Navy Popover" and one "Navy - Linen Popover". They seem to be exactly the same with both being 100% Irish linen, but one is $55 and one is $49. What gives? In the pictures, one might be a little darker. Are they different linen?
Different linen supply

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 second this. I must have larger than average wrists because I can never get any of my watches to fit under the buttoned cuff of a SM shirt

What color of trousers will go well with the cigar SC?

I wonder if something is going with their shirt factory and messing up the cuff width.

I had a go-around with cuff size on some custom shirts. Here is what happened to me -

Very first MTM shirt - specified 9.5" cuff; received 10.25" cuff

Replacement first shirt with adjustments - specified 8.75"; received 9.5" (I'm thinking "ok fine...the factory doesn't follow the same measuring guideline specified on the website, so I just enter a smaller cuff size and get what I actually want - about a 3/4" larger than specified, which worked in this case")

Shirts 2 & 3 - specified 8.75"; received 8.75" (gaaa, these are too small to wear, and after an email argument the custom team agreed to replace them)
