Seersucker at STP and SYMS

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

As many of you know (and have taken advantage of) STP has Haspel Seersucker on sale for about 150 (it's a little less than that including shipping with the SF link). So I hate to tell you this, but SYMS in Manhattan (and I suspect the others) have the same suit for $119. There were a good three racks of them--many sizes. I tried to avoid them since I had just ordered mine.

Damn.

Were they double-vented or single-vented? Mine is set to arrive today. I hope you had a good visit to NYC. Perfect weather, just about.

Honestly I saw the sign and just walked in the oppposite direction. I was too depressed. NYC was good (and bad), see my other post. I loved it as always.

Well, I'm not upset. I have no access to a SYMS. Have you gotten your suit yet, Bob? What did you think?

Not here yet so I can't say. But it shipped a week ago; I suspect it will be there when I get home.

I went to Syms at lunch to check this out... they have 3 btn, double vented models. Made in the Philippines. Not bad looking but a bit boxy.

Oh good. Mine on order is actually a 2 button. Yay. I don't feel nearly so bad now.

Okay, I got mine tday and have tried it on.

The pants feel bigger than what they say and they are cut very large in the seat. I hate that. It can be fixed, but just adds to the tailoring bill.

The jacket is a 48R. It is too tight in the arm holds and chest. It even seems too wide in the shoulders, though when compared to other jackets it is only a tiny tiny bit wider. It is the weirdest fitting jacket I have ever worn. The worst part of it is that it turns out I look really good in seersucker. So I hate to return it but feel I have to. It just does not feel right at all. And there is no obvious solution to it. If I go to a 46 for the shoulders it will never fit in the chest or arms. Maybe I should just take it to the tailor to see what can be done and make my decision then.

I'm too tired to do it now, but I will take a picture of it tomorrow maybe and you can see how big the shoulders are.

Mine's going back, too. Very frustrating, especially because I tried on the same model jacket from old stock, and that fit very well. This is bigger in the shoulders, less trim in the waist, and longer by around an inch (didn't measure).

Haspel is all over the map, it seems. I just found a 40R Haspel seersucker coat that fit me perfectly, even though I'm usually a 38R.

If it's any consolation, guys, my Marshall's just got in a large shipment of Haspel stuff. Sportcoats were $49.95. You might try your local store.

Do you know if they make a 36R? I'm going to try the NYC Syms locations, and Marshalls. I was really excited about this one, thinking I could wear it as a suit, and separately.

If you normally wear a 36R, then you might take a 38R in this batch. If that's the case, I know they offer those -- saw one just tonight. Can't say on 36, though. Good luck with it!
