    I actually have all this info in a spreadsheet already. I'll modify it so it's easier to read. I'll get it uploaded when I get a chance.

    Sorry for the delay. Here are some pics of the Full Spread. This is the updated C7 with 3.5" points.

    Awesome, thanks. The full spread looks really good with the jacket in the pic above.

    Few comments on the OCBD after a decent amount of wear on my 2 shirts.

    Great shirts, great fabric, great roll.

    With that said, a few improvements I feel could be good :

    2. The holes for my "button-down" buttons seem to be a bit too big and my collar sometimes goes loose (rarely but still).

    2. I would add a quarter to half an inch to collar points lenght for more rolling.

    3. I feel like the button-down buttons are placed a bit too low below the collar and a bit too centered, but I feel that's mostly up to preference.

    Been dying to come visit the store, but having trouble finding the time to travel from downtown (anxiously awaiting the opening of a downtown location). Any chance you have some close-up pics of the older blue sportcoat, as I'm wondering about the surface texture.

    Also, any very light grey trousers coming out without any pattern? Although the new windowpane model is nice, it might not pair well with patterned sportcoats.

    Picked up my first custom shirt today. I was very happy with the fit and overall quality of the shirt. I will definitely be ordering more in the future.

    I'll try to get some extra pics when I have the chance.

    I have a medium grey and charcoal grey trouser under production currently. I have some limited stock of light grey in stock: http://www.spierandmackay.com/product_information/2457_heather_lt._grey_soho___slim_fit Don't know if that is what you are looking for.

    Ahh...too bad those light grey trousers are sold out in a 32. Exactly the kind of thing I'm looking for!

    Will there be any promos for your trousers any time soon? Looking to place an order. Thanks!

    Question for you guys about the button stance on a dress shirt.

    Where would you prefer the first button down from the collar to be.

    1. Ledbury drops the first button down from the band approx 3". The allows you to button the first button up, but it sits lower.

    2. A lot of European companies will raise the first button to approx. 1 1/2", raising all the other buttons along with it. This raises the 2nd button. So you can keep the first button undone, button the 2nd, without the shirt showing much chest. My personal preference is this, as it looks perfectly casual as the collar is unbuttoned.

    I'm tinkering with the button position for OTR. Of course any custom orders we can adjust the stance as you like.

    Thoughts gentlemen?

    Not on the horizon. We just got the new trousers in and we have have other trousers already marked down. Closer to the summer we will probably run something on what's left.

    I prefer option 2 for your shirt question.

    By the way, tobacco brown herringbone trousers. The slim fit page says the composition is 100% 110s wool, the contemporary page says its 73% wool, 27% linen. Might want to fix that. (also which one is it ?)
