Any chance for a restock on the off-white linen pants, or is that all she wrote?

Anybody have IRL photos of the Guabello pale green h'bone? Sure looks like a winner for summer.
Wondering about the shade of green, is it olive or??
Well I ordered the last one in 38 contemporary due to the flash sale, so will see in 2 weeks.

First outing of cigar linen suit after a few adjustment. It definitely stands out but I’m really liking it. Can’t wait for it to wear down and get as many wrinkles as possible.

Hi Rikky, would appreciate your thoughts.

Thinking of ordering a custom shirt. I really like the look of the Cooper collar but wanted the versality of wearing it with a tie if wanted. Is it possible/recommended to include a button/button hole so it can be buttoned all the way to the top? Or is that not possible due to the pattern, ie, the button and button hole wouldn't button nicely due to the pattern (similar in principle to the top button of a 3roll2 jacket).

If it is possible, what would we put in the comments? Would we just select the Cooper collar and ask for an extra button/button hole?

Thanks!

@spiermackay , is there any hope in knit polos being restocked in the larger sizes this summer? Looks like they were popular and mostly sold out.

(I was looking for a Burnt Sienna in XL)
I just returned a couple large knit polos in green and navy if you're looking to try the large in these colors. They're on the way back to S&M right now.

Not possible at the moment. The pattern opens to a slight V, there isn't the proper overlap to have a button/buttonhole.

Wow, fit is great. Exactly how I want mine to look like when I do purchase a linen suit in future. May I know what adjustments you made?
The jacket is my usual 38 slim size but the waist and armhole fitted more like 38R for some reason. So aside from my usual sleeves shortening, I had to nip in the waist a little bit and now it looks great. This was the first time I had to take in a slim jacket from SM. That never happened before. In fact, I had some of them let out a bit and not the other way around.

Trousers on the other hand, my usual size is contemporary 32 or 33(my lower body is thicker than average in contrast to my slim upper body), and it was noted on the product page that these run smaller than usual and may need to size up. But as most sizes had sold out already when the jacket dropped, I had no choice but to snag a last remaining pair in 32, thinking that I would just let it out a bit. When I received the pair, I was surprised to find out that it came with noticeably smaller amount of fabric inside compared to my other SM trousers. So it's still a bit tighter than ideal for me even after the alteration but since the fabric itself has some give unlike wool, it's not all too bad.

Throwing another pic in the elevator after work cause I like the way it came out under the lights! I've been wanting to have a linen suit like this for a while so I'm very happy with how this one has turned out for me. Got some nice compliments from colleagues as well.

I have been wanting to order a suit but I am unsure about the best fit. So I thought about ordering a 34S and a 36S and return the one that doesn't fit. Would the return still be free since this is my first suit? Or would I still have to pay for the return since I ordered two suits? Any help would be appreciated.

No, you should be fine.
If anything, use PayPal and you also get return reimbursement
