 Is it just me, or has SuSu become very plain and bland the last few seasons? I mean, I didn´t buy those shocking pink plaid velvet jackets or military cosplay uniform jackets back in the days (fall 2014 and earlier), but their very existence gave the brand a certain amount of dash and flavor. Well, new cuts are reportedly around the corner, so let´s hope for those. 
 That´s some pretty awesome news; for a while, it looked liked they´d given up making DB suits altogether. A new DB fit is more then I hoped for! By "less Italian" they hopefully mean something with more normal lapels then the Madison batwing-craziness (could of course also mean more structured in the shoulders, like a DB version of the Washington, that would be cool too, as long as it´s still wearable casually).  
  While you´re at it, ask when we´re getting a plain blue double-breasted wool suit! I mean, they introduced _one_ this season, and it´s pretty much sold out at the pre-order stage, so I really don´t get this talk about DB models not selling enough.   
Most confess that I´m really not impressed with the spring/summer pre-order; too much bland, washed-out colors and funky textures. Too few tasteful bold patterns, and worst of all, NO double-breasted fits.   I mean, come on, just give as us Soho or Madison in plain blue wool - you had 3 or 4 of them last spring and they sold out by end of march.    
I seriously doubt there will be any Europe outlet this winter.   Outlet opening on different days in January and June we´ve seen in the past (it has been both early and late in the months during the last 2 years).   Outlet being restricted to certain markets/countries we´ve also seen in the past (there have Europe-only outlets, so no reason there should not be a US-only one).    What we have not seen in the past is the outlet open to certain markets, close, and then...
Uh, I can give my general impression, I guess:   Soho: Best fit on me, medium-ish height rise, quite a lot of room for hips. Copenhagen (also know as "Porto" trousers). Lower waist, tighter in the hips. Lazio: Higher then Copenhagen, about the the same in the hips. Washington: Somewhere in between in Soho and the others, medium-high rise, but less room then Soho. Napoli, Havana etc: No experience.  
 They are quite different in that York is roomier, and Mercer more close fitting, so if one doesnt fit, chances are the other will. Given SuSu outlet price, you can probably flip the other on the Buy&Sell forum for what you gave.
Napoli vs. Soho: Similar fit in the chest/waist. Napoli perhaps has a tad bit more room in the shoulders (Napoli shoulder more structured, Soho shoulder more natural).   Napoli vs Madison: Supposed to fit similar to Soho, yet I find that Madison is slightly less roomy in the chest. Shoulders the same. So less roomy then Napoli overall.   Napoli vs Havana: Havana is clearly more slim in chest, waist and shoulders, I would consider sizing up from your Napoli size if...
Yes, Yes, they do differ dramatically.  I can wear Havana size 34 which is a decent fit. Napoli 34 is clearly too large for me in both chest and shoulders, while Copenhagen is too small, tight in the shoulders and around the hips.   I would add 2 sizes to my Napoli size to get my size in Copenhagen. Check the measurement tables on their website, it gives a pretty accurate picture of the differene between the fits.  
I think mostly they seem high to us as the dollar is damn high to the euro at the moment. Discounts are not as deep as previously (most of the stuff is 50% rather then 70%), but then again, the selection is far greater.    Anyways, US outlet is obviously based on US stock, that is everything that´s left over from US stores. EU outlet selection will be quite different (if it even opens).
