Suit Supply would be really great if they didn't insist on functional cuffs. I will never be a customer because I can't shorten the sleeves.

Yeah, that too. That's my biggest knock against them.

You can shorten the sleeves, you just have to take them in from the sleevehead--which is at least $100. So you have to factor that into the cost.

I really don't understand that either.

ime, shortening from the sleeve head can totally throw off the pitch of the sleeve and the "elbow bend." rendering the jacket even more useless. do they not leave a few inches at the end of the sleeve to shorten it? if not, that sucks.

@HF - All around amazing. And I'm not just saying that because of the brown tie (though that's probably a factor)

 

@MRocks - Thumbed for the story

 

That Tom Miler series of pictures has to be one of the most reposted in this thread lately.

Good point. The problem is they all come with functional buttonholes, so you can't really change the sleeve length much--there are literal holes in the sleeve.

Short sleeves were actually expected and he commented on how overdressed I was (but in jest).

 

Ventless jacket (WW Chan). Slacks are dark olive, shoes are grey. Can't help using this jacket more than others.

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the contrary, I quite like this setup (nifty jacket). This doesn't need a tie. 3 piece suit needs a tie biggrin.gif.

i understand what buttonholes are. wink.gif

but often when they do that on RTW, they set them back an inch or two. if they are doing that RTW, close to the end, that is pretty silly imo.

There is about 1/2" you can play with before it would look bad. The one I tried on in 38s would need to have the sleeve shortened to the second button. It's a shame because they are great jackets for the price.

They are easily my favourite colour, and that's reflected in the range. I've got 5 brown ties this season alone. Probably even with Navy think in terms of numbers in my wardrobe. I've had a 100% sell through on every brown tie I've stocked in the past 2 seasons, so they definitely are popular.
