    You can't really see it in this pic but the overlaying checks are in dark red and dark brown or green (hard to tell which).
    Thanks. Nice look. Considering I also own that same shirt I may steal that look.

      Got my other two suits in (blue self check and light grey, both final sale). Happy with both. Sadly my tailor will be closed over the holidays next week so will need to hold off getting the trousers hemmed/let out until after the new year. Oh well, I've at least got plenty of options for full-time CBD when I start my new job on Jan 3.

      Also decided to exchange the blue watch for the blue gun check that I really wanted. (Thanks to [MENTION=12087]SpierMackay[/MENTION] for reaching out to me.)

        Hi folks!

        Looking to get a blue S&M suit in either Indigo Blue Puppytooth or Indigo Blue Texture, but it's a little hard to tell the difference between the two shades on their website. Does anyone already have one (or both) of the two suits and can post a pic in natural lighting?

        Also, how high are the armholes as compared to say, J. Crew Ludlow or Bonobos Foundation?

        Thanks so much!

          [MENTION=12087]SpierMackay[/MENTION] would it be possible to adjust the price of my order to reflect the new boxing day promotion? I placed my order just a couple days before this boxing day sale started. It was a $1300 order (and my first ever suit/trouser order), so I'd really appreciate it.

          Order # is 21895. Thanks! And Merry Christmas.

            Well this is fun... trying to stock up on more shirts with the Boxing Day sale. Normally when I buy from SM, I have to override a fraud alert on my bank card to process the payment (O, Canada). But I guess my bank isn't operating its fraud alerts because it's a federal holiday...? So I can't override and complete the purchase. Or call my bank to bitch about it.

            I hope my items stay in stock until tomorrow....

            [Edit] Nvm got through to someone at the fraud alert center and got my order placed.

            Wheeeee

              If this is something similar to what they do for travel, you can usually tell your bank before hand. Perhaps you could tell them that you often order from S&M or Canada if you don't want the fraud alert.

              I suggest taking with your banker and figuring out what the options are.

                Funny you mention that [MENTION=2341]LesserBlackDog[/MENTION] as the exact same thing is happening to me right now. Unfortunately for me I will have to wait until tomorrow as I actually work at my bank which happens to be closed today (Christmas observed). First thing I'm doing tomorrow is checking out what's still in stock in the morning.

                As far as the anti-fraud systems it really depends on who your bank uses as a card provider and what banking systems they use. If they use Jack Henry they can always put a travel notice for a few days and might be able to add an exception rule to your card (the latter being fairly unlikely). Never hurts to ask but if you don't buy too often it may be more work than simply approving a transaction every now and then.

                  I'm going to pull the trigger on sport coat today but I'm torn between the blue hopsack and the navy hopsack. The pictures make the navy look a brighter shade of blue. Does anyone know if that's the case? Has anyone seen both in person and have a preference between the two? Also, just to confirm, the slim fit is generally considered to be slimmer than J.Crew Ludlow, correct?

                  Comment


                    I'd say slim fit is slightly slimmer than Ludlow, but honestly not by much. At least on me. I'm a 38R and the S&M slim fit is frankly perfect OTR for me. No tailoring needed. The Ludlow is practically the same, with juuuuuuuust a hair more room (but still perfectly fine OTR). Contemporary I'd compare to the Crosby, which also fits well but has a bit more room all over in the coat. Both Crosby and Contemporary S&M have had the jackets tailored. Not a ton, but enough that it made a difference in slightly-roomy to perfect. If it's your first purchase from S&M, of course, there's the one-free-exchange rule. I know it applies to suits; not 100% on coats but I don't see why they wouldn't.

                    I'm kinda jealous that they still have the hopsack in your size. Mine's OOS in both colors, both fits.

                      IMO the navy is more of a true navy. The blue is like a midnight blue. Blue is a shade or two darker than the navy. I prefer the navy color but the 3 button of the blue.

                        Thanks for this. I'm trying to compare measurements against my Ludlow but their sizing chart is kind of a mess. Plus they don't list measurements for short sizes. I'm pretty sure they'll do a free exchange of your first purchase of a sports coat so I'll give it a shot and exchange if it doesn't work.

                        I'm pretty surprised they have my size in navy hopsack in both slim and contemporary, and the blue in contemporary. I don't see that lasting much longer though.

                          Aye, definitely not with the sale going on right now. Stuff is about to clear out. And that means room for the new stuff coming in....hopefully that ocean blue comes back because mmmmm daddy like. But the 38R slim was gone in an instant.

                            As someone who has tried both on...
                            The Blue is a 3 roll 2 button while the Navy is a true 2 button.
                            Also, the Blue is from the new factory while the Navy is the last batch from the old factory.
                            The Blue is slightly more "blue" than navy. The Navy is a true navy.

                            The material seems nicer on the Blue, but I wanted a true 2 button so I went with the Navy. If the button thing don't bother you, the Blue is the way to go.

                            Also, the slim is slimmer than J Crew Ludlow.

                              Comparing S&M 36S and Ludlow 36S:

                              S&M sleeve is 0.98" shorter.
                              S&M body length is 0.45" shorter.

                                I ended up going with the Navy slim only because the Blue slim wasn't available in my size. I can live with the 3/2 roll and knew that the Blue is made in the new factory with the softer shoulders. I have a feel that the slim might not work out though. If that's the case I will definitely exchange for the Blue contemporary assuming its still available.
