    Great deal! Is it possible to mix/match jacket and pant sizes with these or no? 40R contemp jacket but 36 slim pants are best for me.

      Unfortunately not. These were overstock fabrics, so we didn't have the cloth to run trouser separates.

        How easy are returns to Canada from the US?

        These pants are just what I was looking for, in just the right colors, but I am nervous about ordering as it seems so many things could go wrong?

        BTW, Spier and Mackay, we short and/or skinny guys are a large portion of the population. We are usually ignored, so you are not the only ones, but I can't believe there isn't a market for 29 or 28 waist sizes. Peter Manning, and a few others routinely stock pants with waist sizes even below 28 and seem not to have suffered.

        S&M targets the skinny guys big time, their Sondrio trousers are very slim in contemporary fit, I normally wear 33 waist pants in other brands(34 Contemp S&M)
        But with their new fit a 34 in Sondrio I could barely lift my leg(Their 34 Original Contemporary fit me fine), 34 Fresco Contemp was a bit looser but not a lot of play either, they made their tailored fitting pants Slim fit, if I was a non active beanpole gamer I'd be set :P

        Warning: Their sizing is all over the map, it's quite annoying to keep having to return stuff because a 34 Contemporary varies drastically depending on what material you pick etc.

          Just wondered if there was any way to sort/filter on your website by size. Searching through the overstock, it would be great to just be able to filter what you had left in certain sizes. Thanks!

            Woops, nevermind. I'm an idiot. You can absolutely do this, by clicking on the Refine button and clicking sizes.

              So has anyone gotten their linen pants yet? Can you compare them with other SM fits? Would they run smaller or bigger than expected?

                I don't have any of their linen pants but I will say that recent trousers I have received from S&M are noticeably more snug than trousers I have purchased in the same size and fit in previous years. Not sure if it's just a matter of QC or if their sizing/fit is evolving to become more slim over time.

                  I have found it depends on the fabric with S&M pants. Two different fabrics can fit quite differently.

                  But come on LBD, we know you've been working on the GAINZ!

                    Well - so prior to the GAINZ I had been wearing size 30 contemporary trousers let out 1" in the waist (i.e. I could buy size 36R suits without having to swap the trousers). A year or so ago I also bought one of their cotton suits in my regular 36R and asked them to swap for size 32 contemporary trousers since I figured taking pants in slightly is probably better than letting them out.

                    Those pants were pretty loose at the time but I never got around to having them altered, because I ended up mostly wearing the jacket as a sport coat. I recently bought several pairs of size 32 contemporary trousers since I can't fit my size 30s anymore and unlike the cotton pants, which fit me fine currently, all the new ones I bought I've had to take to the tailor to have them let out in the waist/seat.

                      Exact same issue

                      34 Contemporary I have fit fine

                      34 Fresco fit but are a bit tighter than I expected

                      34 Sondrio are sausage casings I could barely get my legs in and a world different in size that the 34 contemporary, even the waist and rise wasn't close to the 34

                      All the sizes I got were contemporary fit

                        Anyone else having an issue with the button holes on the polo?

                        I only button the first of the three holes, but after just a few wears, it’s become misshapen and won’t hold the button securely closed.

                          On the current ones or the older ones? Are you referring to the collar button or the top button on the placket?

                            Newer version of the button down collar. Lowest button on the placket.
