    any reason you didn't want cuffs on your pants?

    Because of the flat front of the pants and the no break / clean look I was going for, I opted for no cuff. I've heard mixed things about mixing flat front modern look with cuffs. What do you think?

    I cuff all my pants. I 'm not a big fan of flat front though.

    Hi everyone,

    I'm looking for MTM shirts from Spoon. Can someone give me an evaluation on pricing, the process, turn around time, and etc please?

    Decided to give Spoon a try for a dress shirt. I just can't get RTW to fit the way I want. Was in Saturday in the hopes I would run into a Styleforum member or two. Instead there was no one there (close to 11am) which was great for quick service. Eventually a non SF member (lurker status only) came in. Will post pics when the shirt is finished.

    Regards,
    Mark

    I have probably 14 shirts from them at this point. The QC on some of the measurements went wonky for a couple of them but I've been happy on the whole. Have a couple pairs of trousers too.

    Good luck on your shirts!

    Thanks. You must like them since you have around 14. I want to start with one and see how good I can get the fit and then do another 9. Hopefully won't have any QC issues. Definitely looking forward to the end result!

    Yeah, I probably did a couple every couple of months to reach that point. Definitely would recommend pacing yourself! The fit is one thing, but you'll also probably end up working on some different collar expressions (height, point length, spread, etc.) and that takes time and potentially a couple misses. Such as life when you need MTM :)

    I went to the tailor today, picked loro piana Wish 170s, since they have better deal than other fabrics. it's a medium solid navy, with subtle stripe texture.

    one button, slim notch lapel suit. they said it's almost unlimited fitting.spoon tailor seems to know this very well, the tailor pointed out the issue of my current blazer with one look.

    hope the new suit would stand out with the fabric and fit.

    Picked up my suit with 170s loro piana, very satisfied with the fit, it seems they did it right in one shot! (the first two fittings are both based on unfinished garment)

    Can't see all the details, but from this pic the fit seems pretty good, though you may want to wear a shirt with a slightly longer sleeve or have the tailor shorten your sleeves by another 1/2 in or so.

    Anybody still use this tailor? Any more recent comments? My in-laws live in San Fran and it might be nice to stop in on our next trip.
