    How thick are they compared to the current lightweight ones? I don't really understand gauge.

    Anybody who has a pair of their linen pants experience significant pilling? Or was this intended as part of the weave?

    edit: not really pilling, but there are little loops of thread popping out randomly

    I was thinking that a full moleskin suit was a bad idea...until I saw this photo.

    Any chance of getting more of the dressier shirt options without a placket? I migrated to a French front look and just can't go back.

    I'm really enjoying watching Spier & MacKay spread internationally. First Canada. Next, the world.

    Yeap! Hopefully S&M includes those shipping options in the site to order faster.

    I've been ordering MTM shirts with a French front as well. I find that with lighter fabrics the shirt collar doesn't stay up as nicely when the top button is unbuttoned. Is there an type of constuction that can be requested that allows for a French front look, but provides more structure to prevent this?

    Can I just get a quick clarification on sleeve length?

    I typically order the S&M 15.5 slim fit shirts. If I wanted to order the same spec what sleeve length would I select with the new options?

    I too ordered 3 MTM with French plackets and lighter fabrics. Monti twill and TM fine stripe, all light. And have the same experience.
    Love the look and when buttoned up, no issues.
    Might stick to regular placket for lighter cloth and French for heavier going forward.
