    I wear a 34 contemporary, which fits well overall, but a little more room in the lower leg would be ideal, with a hem opening around 8.25" or so. Based on the one pair of SM trousers I have, it seems like the fabric is there to enable them to be let out slightly, but my tailor didn't seem to want to pursue it when I brought it up.
    There is a 1/4" on each side of the seam. So it is possible. We've done it for other customers. You can open the seam right up to to the surge stitch.

    We can do it before shipping, but once the trouser is altered, it cannot be returned unfortunately.

    Fair enough - thanks for the quick response!

    I've been wondering about the polos as well, any new colours this year?

    Sorry to break the bad news, but the polos are cancelled for this year. They didn't pass the final quality control inspection. There were some issues with both shrinkage and the collars. We were really excited about them too.

    Hey Rick is it possible to get pants pre-hemmed when making an order?

    Took advantage of the sale and picked up the copper linen suit and a pair of mid gray slacks. Was a tough call passing up on one of the new Neapolitan suits, but had to keep my budget intact (for now).

    Sorry to hear about this. I was looking forward to seeing the new polos, but I like the fact that you guys are willing to take a risk on something like this.

    Take pics when you get them in! I'm sitting over here waiting for a sale on Sportcoats, because I like the Bundle price on the hopsack blazer, but they only have blue jackets available in my size, so I don't want to buy multiple jackets.

    Received my order. The copper linen jacket fits great, really nice fabric too. Unfortunately the trousers are a little too tight in the waist to be let out enough, something I tend to have a tough time historically with drop six suit sizing. Just PM'd @SpierMackay to see if I can swap them out.

    I ordered the midnight navy hopsack sportcoat a few months ago and it's quickly turned into my favorite jacket. I'd highly recommend it!
