Just noticed that the MTO trouser rise measurements can be different from the RTW measurements.
For example High rise Slim 32, the Rise, Thigh, and Hem are all different.

That's not good. Must be a system error. Email CS. What's the point if that is indeed the case?

With thst being said, I've never given it any attention but my MTO orders have always been the same as my RTW (I don't do changes to the trousers except hemming and cuffs).

Their footwear is actually quite good. I have a pair of suede jumper boots (got them on a solid discount), and they're nicer than comparable offerings from some well-known makers like Meermin. And I quite like Meermin. I can't speak to the quality of the latest Blake-stitched range, though.

Wow. Was this an attempt at humor? It wasn't funny at all. Try again, boomer.
Wow. Just wow.:facepalm:
His joke was nowhere near as lame and unoriginal as calling someone a boomer or saying "Wow. Just wow", though...

Has anyone ordered a knit (polo) MTM-shirt? How did it turn out? How much fusing did you go for so no 'collar collapse' would occur (for a button down shirt)?

Shetland sweaters are up in the previews View attachment 1823457
I was quite happy to see these. I've been hoping for some Shetland sweaters with the same short length as the deep v-necks from last FW (maybe a bit slimmer through the body, though), and these look like they could be exactly that. Kind of hard to tell how long they are from the pics, though. I'm also a little bummed by the lack of a mid or light gray, but who knows what else they have coming.

wearing my first SM suit: a tan solaro. It hugs my neck beautifully, back panels drape perfectly. It doesn't sit quite exact on the back of my neck but that could be because of my terrible posture. If I had commissioned this I'd maybe want the back cleaned a little but honestly that's probably just nitpicking.

Any feedback on these Parka's?
WAs hoping to pick it up on sale just for occasions where I don't want to wear my nicer coats. Curious about sizing on these too since theyre final sale so I can't return.

I am 5'9" and weigh 160lbs. I wear a S&M 40R suit. I bought a medium Boudin parka. It fits well, but does not have enough room to be worn over tailored clothing. Wearing the Boudin over a suit jacket will crush the shoulders of the jacket. Treat it as a stand-alone parka you would wear with a sweater. It is not an overcoat.

I would not size up because then the arms would be too long for me.

Length is fine, still some room in the waist for ease of movement, but not enough to be worn over a suit.

I would never wear something like this over a jacket or suit. That's what topcoats are for. Wearing this over a suit would look like an abomination.
I was actually thinking of sizing down as some of the comments were that these run big.

still looking for a picture or feedback on the denim chore coat before purchasing if anyone has an opinion. The price is very good
Isn't it at least slightly pretentious to buy peasant clothing for 108 dollars? Like, literally the coat is designed for French peasants.
