Maybe it’s just me but the quarters of the jacket look just a tad to short when looking at the pockets, maybe I’m just crazy
You're not crazy! The bad tailor we used shortened the jacket too much. So we are unfortunately stuck with the length. Trying to decide if we should purchase another suit, since it's for our wedding day. Just not sure how noticable or off balance it is, now that it's shortened.

Possibly interested in MTO tuxedo. Noticed you can change details on MTO shirts and jackets for tuxedo features (satin lapels, pleated front, etc), but didn't see the option for trousers or waistcoats (no options for satin stripe down the leg, nor u-shape waistcoat + satin buttons). Can these be requested in the notes? Also is it possible to ask for no vents (traditional in black tie)?

Ok Gents. What do we want to see next Spring/Summer?
I don't know how feasible this would be? But I would love to see a heavier (10-12 ounce) linen that was blended with a little (5% - 8%) mohair. So hopefully? You would still get those beautiful dramatic rolls in the arms and legs (they always remind me of clouds) while offering a little more give and performance and cutting down on some of the smaller wrinkles. Performance linen, if you will.

Other than that, I second summer denim in maybe Dark wash/light wash/natural and maybe the return of the panama weave dress shirt :)

On my wish list in no particular order:

- Simple 100% cotton t-shirts. Preferred colors are: ecru, tan, dark brown, olive (that deep US army tone).
- Knitted polos in the same shades as mentioned for the t-shirts. Would love to get these in a wide-chest-narrow-waist retro cut.
- The quest cotton dress trousers are fantastic, bring them back next year.
- Fresco trousers in high-rise
- High-rise, pleated shorts in cotton or linen.

My fiance took this S&M suit to a bad tailor, who unfortunately shortened the jacket too much. We are hoping to salvage it for our wedding; is it all that bad??
I think at this point the best thing would be to stop the alterations. It does not look bad, and a short jacket length would be ok for use as a casual outfit, as I am guessing wearing suits to work is not the norm for him.

For future reference, the jacket should ideally cover the bottom (deciding based on the jacket reaching the bent fingers often works, but looking at front and back for coverage of the trouser seat is better). The jacket looks like it came in the proper size and was worked on a bit too much.

The pants are perhaps half an inch too long if you want a no-break look. Use suspenders, these work best for keeping trousers in the same position.

And I wouldn't blame the tailor, they seem to have followed the fitting requests. Getting a proper fit takes time, and it would be better next time with the same tailor, as long as you know what to ask for.

Linen tee shirts apparently 😉
LOL, although I've actually had linen tee's and to make them work they have to be a thinly knit fabric which is incredibly comfortable but mildly transparent in lighter colors, stretches out almost immediately, and lasts one season if you're lucky.

:) I've found cotton-linen blend to work well for a polo. It's not nearly as cool as pure linen, but avoids all the problems the linen t-shirts suffer from, and it has a very nice casual look to it.

Better stock in my size (46 cont). If I’m even remotely late to the party my size is sold out on the more desirable stuff. It’s *increasingly* frustrating how bad that problem is.
