    MTO is generally +30% over the regular OTR price. So Approx. $580 CAD for MTO. You can adjust sleeve length, body length and torso width (chest, waist, hip). Shoulder style, pocket style, lapel style/size, vents. Takes approx. 6 weeks.

    Also is there any plan for trouser separates for the new Guabello suits?

    Thanks!
    If it's your first return, it's on us.

    There are trouser separates in the Guabello. Just not uploaded yet.

    And just to confirm, will you be stocking matching trouser separates for both the midnight navy and bright blue?
    It's similar to the 3 roll 2. It's an inky blue/midnight. Not as bright as the first 2 button version. But it is a Navy. Trousers will be stocked hopefully by the end of this week.

    Different animal. These are proper hopsacks. Great for all year weather. Jacket is 1/4 lined so breathes very well.

    Looking for linen blends in grey and brown.
    Nothing planned unfortunately. Couldn't get the fabrics we wanted for prices that worked. Fall on the other hand is going to be bonkers.

    We can MTO a jacket in Linen blends from HMS/Gladson.

    Thank you. How does the bright blue compare in color? Is it a lighter shade of navy or more of a true blue. Which of the two new options would be closest to the previous navy color? Its hard to gauge the color differences on the computer screen.

    Interested to know as well. And to piggyback on Geo's question: In your opinion, which would be the more versatile color in terms of pairing with various trouser/shirt combinations? (My head says the midnight navy, but my heart wants the brighter blue... it's a beautiful color!)

    The bright blue is exactly that. Brighter and more saturated. I's a very rich blue, almost like a royal blue. The midnight is closer to a true navy and closest to the previous two.

    The Midnight Navy is the more traditional of the two and would be more versatile. But I personally loved the bright blue when I saw the swatch, we knew we had to make it.

    Awesome. That's what I figured but just wanted to make sure. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the reply. Will place an order once the matching trousers are available on your website. Had a couple of sizing related questions, so just shot you a PM.

    The pictures of the bright blue hopsack on your web site seem much darker than your royal blue suits. I know that photography of suits and sportcoats is difficult, as fabrics of different weaves come across differently depending on the lighting, so I am not being critical here. But I am wondering what it could be closest to "in real life." Would it be more like the marine navy blue suit than the royal blue suit? Or to the blue texture suit that colHolm has posted pictures of? Just wanting to get a clearer idea, and hope you don't feel like I'm busting your chops on this, as that is not my intent. Thanks.

    It is darker than the royal blue suit. That's why I was careful to use the word almost...haha. But it is in the same family for sure. It is fair to say that it is more in line with our previous marine navy, that's a good comparison.

    Does this size closer to combatent gent or j crew ludlow? I find that jcrew 38s the shoulders are too wide and the 36s the shoulders are too short/tight. 38s in combatent gent is better for me but the shoulders are still a bit wide. I'm 5'4 and 135 lbs so kind of short but not really fat or skinny. @SpierMackay
