I came across this $2310 USD Isaia jacket on MrPorter and it looked extremely familiar to something SuitSupply is selling for $499 . So I looked for the composition of the SuSu jacket (60% silk, 36% wool, 4% cashmere), and it is identical to the Isaia jacket. Of course, I'm sure the Isaia jacket has much more hand made details and it's made in Italy... but the cloth appear to be exactly the same.
The cashmere jacket you linked to is relatively heavy/thick for a cashmere jacket. It has a very soft feel, but it does look like a fall/winter jacket in real life.The wool jacket is a very basic year-round jacket. It has a rougher touch. The wool/cotton jacket you've seen actually is a great jacket and feels more premium than the wool jacket, a bit thicker and softer (but also slightly more winter-ish). If you're looking for a basic navy blazer the C847 will be perfect.
The Washington isn't just very slim, but it's length makes it stand out from the other fits. It's pretty much like a "semi long size". It's in the length of the jacket, sleeves as well as the height of the rise.
The bags feel really cheap. Same with the shoes (to be fair, I haven't tried the premium line yet), they crease very badly.Last season's chinos were really, really bad. They seem to have improved quite a bit this season. I do really like their flannel trousers.The shirts are very hit-or-miss (might explain the mixed opinions). The cheapest shirts all aren't worth the money. Some of the more expensive ones actually are quite nice (mainly some Thomas Mason and Albiate...
I think SuitSupply in general isn't very consistent in quality across all their different products. Some products are beautifully made with great fabrics and some are pretty terrible for the money (don't trust them with anything that incorporates leather).
I do remember reading that. The knits MrTopCat and I are referring to are quite different from their staple v-necks and cardigans, they definitely feel a step up. My experience with their basic staple knits (cotton and cotton/cashmere) aren't as bad as I remember reading about it here, but I do prefer my BB merino wool cardigans.
They are quite nice actually (especially for the euro prices). The wool is very soft, feels luxurious. I have a wool-cashmere shawl collar cardigan from last season that has held up well.
If a Napoli jacket was too roomy, you'll have better luck with a Lazio suit. I think the Havana is a bit too casual to be a very versatile suit. The suit MrTopCat posted is absolutely gorgeous, the color is perfect for an all-round suit and it has a very soft touch (in contrary to those traveller suits....).
The fabric (and construction) is slightly more lightweight than regular Napoli suits, but I definitely wouldn't call it a summer suit. It does wear quite comfortable.The fabric is pretty decent, but I personally think it doesn't drape that well. But maybe I just don't really like traveller suits in general.
Definitely don't shorten the sleeves. Those linen sleeves will wrinkle quite a bit, and the sleeve will end up just fine.
