I love their stuff, and I like their sport coats, but none of their trousers work for me OTR (rise too low, even on "high rise"). I keep debating their MTM program though.
What's the process to return their items? Guess ship it back with return label (is it free or they make you pay)

I like the cut, style, and price point of spier and mckay but they are too narrow for me in the shoulders :(.
Damn, I wish I had some wide shoulders!

I believe free returns but via USPS. The returns took some time.

I would take Suit Supply over Bonobos every time, but my whole thesis is that you should figure out what you want the suit to do and then buy to the purpose. In my opinion, the Bonobos purpose is "I need a suit for my job or a bar mitzvah or something and I don't want to shop at Macy's because I have some kind of misplaced pride, so I'll spend two or three times as much for the same thing."

did not realize SuitSupply was so much better than Bonobos... felt Bonobos was a nice brand?

Why don't you try Spier and MacKay. The Nomos is off the table. Durability issue keeps coming up.
Yeah, not a fan how you need to order Nomos from Germany without first being able to hold it and look at it in person... so never was on the table for me...
ORIS! get it! nicely priced at 1k and available in local stores

If not mistaken SuitSupply lists their as half canvas, Bonobos, I dont think it is
Everything at SuSu other than their Jort line is half canvas FYI.

SM returns are only free for the 1st sportcoat/suit I believe. Otherwise it's $15, but I have read that people use PayPal for payment and they are able to get free returns that way. Haven't tried personally.

Bonobos is owned by walmart in the recent past...I would guess mostly fused stuff

Tourneau in Pentagon City is an authorized Nomos dealer.

Speaking of Toronto...visited there last Summer and was quite disappointed with the city. The people certain seemed nice but the city was just boring. So far Boston is my favorite place to visit.

seriously? It's often compared to Chicago. and aren't they building condos like mad? I'm planning on visiting Montreal when this whole mess is over. supposed to be one of the liveliest cities in North America.

There are pros and cons to having wide shoulders. In general I have a hard time finding clothes that are comfortable and fit well.

I'd agree that it's similar to Chi-town. So many different ethnic neighborhoods and restaurants to try.
