Has anyone tried the Ivy and Lightweight OCBDs? Did you prefer one over the other?

Haven’t tried the lightweight but have tried the 2 ply & ivy oxford, and I prefer the ivy. Little bit softer and has a little bit of stretch. I haven’t heard great things about the lightweight oxfords

So what is the general consensus on their new tees? Worth the buy?

I have a MTM from them in the lightweight and an OTR rack one in the two-ply. The two-ply is far superior. I kind of hate the lightweight: I feel like it has to be ironed in order to look decent, whereas the two-ply, I can hang it dry and it's good to go (it certainly doesn't look pressed, but much less wrinkly looking than the lightweight).

I picked up the burgundy 2-ply in medium and found the material soft and breathable, and the color to be accurate. It's fitted through the chest and shoulders, with a comfortable fullness through the mid-section. It's in the laundry now, so I can't speak to how it wears post-first wash, but I'd consider picking up another one.

For reference: jacket size 40R neo or contemporary, 31 waist

Thanks! Maybe someone has experience with their cotton-modal tees?

Might be late to the party, but it looks like there is a bit more customization available under the MTO sport coats? Lapel width being the most notable. I concur with most that the Neo cut might not always be warranted, but it's nice to have an option to do MTO with the normal cut, and widen the lapels a bit.

These product images make me not want to buy anything
If they got someone doing photos even remotely resembling DapperClassic's photos, that would be huge for them. These photos are not doing their great products any favors as the sizing is totally off for the models and the styling is odd. Case in point, the moleskin truckers are waay too small and the knit tees with the elastic hem are strangely pulled all the way down.

Ya know, I never used to buy that it took any sort of secret sauce to be a model, because you're just a human mannequin, right? These Spier pics have proven me so wrong.
It's not the models' fault... if they are indeed real humans and not AI personages. Whoever's in charge of styling them needs to be fired immediately though.

Is this new tobacco linen suits already out of stock in long sizes? Looks nice surprised though they don’t mention the mill

At that price, I’d be stunned if it wasn’t Angelico. And, at that weight, but especially at that weight being linen, I think you’d be insane to buy.

That thing is going to be a catastrophe within 5 minutes of wearing
