    I have a pair of their brown leather double monks....
    ....stay clear of their shoes and spend the extra money for a pair of AE or similar.

    Thanks guys. I was looking at these, but after your opinions I will stay of out their shoe offer. [​IMG]

    If they were cheaper I would buy them to use them for weekends and in general a very rough use, but for that money... nah.

    Meermin is cheaper, better looking, and has a better construction, even with the QC issues.

    Indeed. I still don't, if I buy Meermin, to send them to the US and then Mexico or directly to Mexico, from the Meermin thread I read that even in the US you have to pay import duties. [​IMG]

    Guys - what you do in this situation.

    I feel the shoulders are better on the Havana 36R, but just a tad tight on the chest and body.

    Or do i go the 38R and get the waist and arms tailored in?

    Shoulders on the 38 don't look too good, IMO.

    What's a tad tight? Do you have restrictions with arm movements? Does the fabric bunch up way too much if you raise your arms?

    That's a pretty close call. I'd go with the 38 actually. Looks cleaner.

    Yeah I'd like to rephrase. It's not a close call. The 38 fits great.

    Thanks everyone for your responses - i think 38 is also the go. When wearing the 36 it bunches up alot when i raise my arms and kind of feels like it will rip.

    Ill get the jacket tailored today then :)

    thanks again!

    If one of those is 40L or 42L depending on the cut, I'm in.

    Can anyone comment about price and quality of the in house tailoring they do? Was just asked recently but seems like no replies.

    I am going to NYC tomorrow and will take advantage of it if I should.. thanks!

    The prices aren't too bad. They've got them posted up somewhere I think. They're posted all over the store. Can't speak to quality as I haven't had them tailor anything

    Hey I'm hoping I can get some help. What's the closest to a Jcrew Ludlow fit, but with a wider lapel (mainly looking for slim and lower button stance). I fit a 38R in Jcrew ludlow and wear the size 30 slim ludlow pants. Is there anything that would fit me right without having to do too much work to the pants? Looking for something in navy wool. Thanks!

    You can always order the pants separate by calling in to order if I remember correctly

    Yeah, but you can subtract 21% VAT from their listed prices, and add around $30 in duties. So that still makes them a hell of a lot cheaper than the suitsupply ones, and the Meermin loafers are gorgeous, I've got the suede ones myself.
