    Oh believe me, I completely understand everything you're saying. At 6'5'', 170 lbs, 15.5/37, 32x36 it's hard to find well established companies that fit me OTR... let alone a new company with 4 employees!

    Appreciate the response and will definitely be checking back in with you guys down the line!

    Sorry to hijack the thread @pharmacy. This is actually quite useful because this is the price range my brother is looking at for wedding party suits this summer. Wide variety of sizes + suit separates + quality/price ratio lead me to JCF.

    I just wanted to chime in. I just received my Spier and Mackay grey birdseye suit (contemporary fit) yesterday. The jacket fits almost perfect, and the quality feels on par with a SS Napoli. Light padding, light canvassing, and great material!

    The pants however, are very narrow in the thigh and ankle. There is room in the waist to probably let out 2 inches or so, but I hardly see any material to let out in the seat or thighs. This is also the contemporary fit which is supposed to be roomier than the slim (I cant even imagine how that fits) I sent an email to Spier and Mackay seeing if I can sub out the pants for a larger size. Will update you all once if I get a reply or once I have the suit tailored.

    What size did you purchase? Your body measurements would also be helpful.

    Does Spier and Mackay typically run promos? I'm interested in one of their suits, but I'm not sure I'm willing to pay $398 considering how infrequently I'd wear it. I'd also likely take a closer look at SuitSupply at that price point.

    They definitely run promos, although I'm not sure what the rhyme or reason is (seems like mainly holidays and end of season). Also, the price is in Canadian dollars, ICYDK.

    I like the look of the Spier and Mackay suits but the 6" drop doesn't work for me being a 44R jacket and 34" in pants.

    @cal86 IIRC, Rick from Spier&Mackay has said in the other thread that they can and will accommodate different size pants as long as they have it in stock.

    If that's the case, then even more reason to check into it further.
