My previous order from June 12 was shipped 48 hrs. This one 24 hrs. It looks like there's a trend of slight improvement, albeit 1 step forward two steps back.

I think it's really a spin the wheel of shipping speed luck game. I ordered a shirt on the 16th and it is still processing.

And apparently a spin the wheel for whether it's in stock, because before I could post this I received an out of stock notification. Although after I received that email I see that there are still 3 for sale on the website so who knows!?

There appears to be some issue with Spier's website (and perhaps also their stocking system). Suddenly, all sorts of items are showing as sold out in all sizes. Items that I know had stock only a day or two ago (including the Sportcoat I received an email about).

This happens occasionally. I think they're updating inventory on sport coats.

Anyone know the differences between “normal sport coat” jacket template and the “Standard” suit jacket template specifically as it pertains to the shoulders? If I get a standard suit jacket with unpadded shoulders will it be the same shoulders as an unpadded sportcoat?

The sport coat template features a spalla camicia with shirring and the standard template does not.

Heard back from the MTO/MTM coordinator.
You can request "undarted American sack jacket" in notes.

Also, they " are not currently sourcing new fabric from VBC at this time" which is kind of a bummer.

I wanted to give psa on this gem of a jacket from Bottoli in wool/silk/hemp. Great pick by SM. Cloth is great, substantial yet feels light. Don’t sleep!

Update on my funky jacket: just a straight up return. Which, fine by me, but if you're a 46R on marinating on the SC, you're gambling a bit

So I've had my eye on a particular sport coat from FW22 for a while, just waiting for a sale to drop. Last week, there was only one 38 contemporary available and an unknown (more than 3 I assume) number of 38 slims. Now, after the inventory update yesterday, there's three contemporaries and zero slims. Does that sound fishy to anyone else? I'm imagining S&M just switching the tags on the slims to get them sold. They wouldn't do that, right?

Very unlikely.

Ya, that seems too sleazy, by a good margin, imo.

Maybe returns?
