I'm looking for a Navy (Blue Sharkskin preferably) / Medium grey in the near term. I just want to balance what I should buy now versus what can potentially wait until the full canvas option is available.
    The Full Canvas we are going to tread lightly on the rollout, so some core colours to start, then once we get traction with the program, we'll roll out more options.

    Rick, when will the Shorts be available online to order? From all I've been reading, I'm eager to try your product! Additionally, will Shorts be available with the Full Canvas option when those are released early next year?

    Only one reference photo, but neither of these are modified and are 38R. Obviously a little waist suppression is needed on the S&M (the Suitsupply fits perfectly), but the shoulders and chest are really nice.

    My outfit today was with the Suitsupply, so it doesn't really work with the S&M. Oh well, it's at least a snapshot of the fit.

    They are shipping out from the factory on Friday. Should be here in about a month.

    The 36 just might fit you well as a slimmer fitting jacket. You may have to have waist opened slightly.

    My best fitting jacket has the following measurements:

    * 17.25" natural shoulder
    * 41" chest (with added room in the back, so more room here wouldn't be bad)
    * 37.5" waist (ish).

    As you can see, the shoulder measurement is small and seems to line up with your 36, but the rest is more of a 38. It's a struggle I seem to deal with eternally. Of course, a lot of the shoulder size working has more to do with the armhole size and pitch, as well as how it's measured, which is why it's so hard to compare measurements like this.

    The shoulders are very lightly padded on the sportcoats and fall fairly naturally. Which size were you looking at? The shoulders are graded based on our experience with custom suits over the past five years and seem to work quite well for most. But as with all OTR, it really needs to be tried to make sure the fit is for you.
