    Loden wool, woven in Tirol for centuries, is known for its resistance to cold and wetness. Our project in collaboration with Epaulet introduces Alpine Loden, a modern 18oz fabric blend of 75% merino wool and 25% nylon, woven in Italy. It's lighter, more durable, wind-resistant, and more comfortable than traditional Loden fabric. Partnering with Rochester Tailored Clothing, we offer custom garments like sportcoats, suits, and overcoats, made to your specifications. Learn more about the Loden collection here.

Here’s my Canali MTM suit.

- Solid navy
- Peak lapel
- Higher rise
- 15000 Model which has a very soft shoulder.
- Added an inch to length from base model.

Overall happy with it.

Canali MTM adds features not typically available through OTR, such as an after-dinner split.

Turned out well! Samuelsohn lets you add a lot of customization of their base models. For example, you can widen the lapel, lower the buttoning point, etc…

Familiarize your self with the various models. Also, you can mix models between the jacket and trousers.

For example, the jacket above is based on their 15000 model, but the accompanying trouser is very very slim. So I had the trouser made in their 13000 model, which has regular/trim proportions.

Very nice..how much does Canali MTM come down to recently as their RTW is quite pricey here in the UK?

Just got notified my navy Ring Jacket Balloon cloth sport coat arrived in NY today. Sleeves need finished, then it will be shipped out.

Was originally scheduled for July delivery, so I’m pretty excited.
Can't wait to see it! Did you go with the solid navy or the check?

I just know their EU pricing, appr 30% upcharge on RTW - like with all others, the cloth quality dictates the price, this spring I've been quoted 1650 for a basic one and 3k for a Solaro (ikik Smiths original etc., don't @ me)

hey all, long time lurker but mostly on the denim side of things. I'm getting married and picked out a MTM suitsupply suit, but just wanted to see what styleforum thought of the fit

I'm a little perplexed at why there's this weird crease when I move in certain ways when the suit is buttoned-see photo 2

Thanks in advance for any help!
