    Weren't the Guabello suits priced 448 cad? Now they are 448 usd. Looks like we lose the lower price from the currency conversion with the prices now in usd on the website.

    It's approx. 6.5" spread. Do you have a particularly round face? This is really the only face shape that a full spread can look funny with. Square, triangular and oval shapes are perfectly fine.

    Gents,

    Our new USD site rolled out today. So for all US customers you will now see all pricing in USD and all transactions will be in USD. No more converting from USD to CAD, so you can save on the bank fees!

    I wear a 35" sleeve in Lands End and Brooks Bros, seems to land just right in most cases.

    I tried a 40R in the S&M brown tweed. The sleeves were too short, showing over an inch of cuff, and would need letting out; the length of the whole jacket was ok, a tad short, but ok, as you say. I decided that it was not worth the expense of the full-price jacket plus tailoring. Maybe in a future sale ... and I guess I should try a 42L now that S&M have released those ...
    You probably need a 40L to be a great fit. We are thinking about rolling some out for spring. But final decision hasn't been made yet.

    Which J.Crew 40R did you try on? How does the Ludlow fit? The measurements are close, so that would give you an idea of how the S&M stuff will fit. Or have you tried Suit Supply? Their Havana measures basically the same as the S&M Contemporary fit.

    I'd say this: if your rear is pretty much covered and the bottom of the jacket hits right around the knuckle on your thumb, you should be A-Ok.

    Hope that helps. Happy hunting!

    Though it seems quite a few people have been hassling Rick, so I'm hopeful they come back for the future.
    I share your pain! (36S contemporary, here)

    Had a store credit and didn't really need anything so I figured I'd just put another white dress shirt in my closet.

    Threw it in the wash, gentle cycle, and then a quick ~5min low heat dry as I do with all dress shirts to try and minimize wrinkles before ironing... resulted in some shrinkage. Not a lot, but noticeable. While ironing, found it to be the most stubborn shirt I own. No matter how hard I tried to be gentle with it, any area that was already ironed became quickly wrinkled again as soon as I moved to a new area. Upon wearing it, wrinkles everywhere. I would never feel comfortable wearing this shirt without keeping a jacket on the whole time.

    The whole thing just feels cheap, thin, and crunchy. I've tried washing it a few times now with hopes that it will break in and soften up, but so far it doesn't seem to be changing much.
    Sounds like you live in Alberta and hardwater issues, if I let my shirts air dry (any brand) they get stiff feeling from water, toss some vinegar in to wash maybe.

    Also order the premium fabrics, the Tessitura and Thomas Mason will feel much nicer.

    Agree on shrinkage, it does happen and why I generally can't wear S&M shirts & suits as they are a business trying to reach most customers and most guys now are pretty thin and box shape. I find after a few washes I have me some sleeves that are a bit too short with the slim fits, normally I'm 36 if shoulder is 19.5 and no shrinkage happens, slim is 19.25 which is doable if nothing shrinks.

    I saw that this morning, I ordered the tan guncheck. You're right about the sorting I don't know why I couldn't find it on the new arrivals page.

    Again thanks for the heads up on this I really appreciate it. Though I will admit my wife basically said this is my bday and Christmas gift---- worth it.

    What shirts and brands do you normally wear? It sounds like you might wear non-iron shirts or thicker oxford cloth shirts. Untreated (have-to-iron) cotton dress shirts wrinkle more easily, but you should be able to iron them fast, since they don't need much time under the iron. I don't use the dryer at all. I just hang the shirt up straight out of the washing machine. You might consider using a starch spray for the wrinkles when you iron.
