Grateful for any advice!

Here's a link to the model you have:
http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/napoli-blue-plain/P3458I.html

24 is the European size label that is comparable to a US size 38S (the "S" is for "short"). A "short" suit is typically shorter in the arms and overall length, and for Suitsupply usually has a slightly larger chest measurement. If you visit the link above you will see a link on SuitSupply's website for a Size Advisor that has the measurements for the different size Napoli suits.

The 299.00 price likely refers to the suit price in Euro, since SuitSupply is a Dutch company.

And would this suit be consider closer to the color, navy? Also if anyone can explain this particular fabric to me because to me it looks a little shiny/ denim ? Thanks

 

I live near the Georgetown Suitsupply store, but they don't have this in the store yet.

 

 

I wanted this suit, http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/lazio-blue-plain/P3963I.html?cgid=Suits ,but I was told they are not going to ever restock this again. :(


If by versatile you mean the jacket could be worn separately, this is not ideal for that.  I would recommend a hudson or havana for that.  The thing with doing that is what's added in versatility is sacrificed in formality.  The casualness that allows it to be versatile also makes it less appropriate for things like job interviews or wearing to certain jobs.

What I mean by versatile is that... can this particular suit be worn for wedding, job, interviews, other formal events, etc, based on the color from the suit (looks closer to navy I think). This is going to be my first suit that I'm planning to buy, so I want it to be used for other events, etc, as well. If I'm gonna buy it as a suit ... I'm planning to keep it as a suit.

 

Let me know what you think please. I am trying to make a right decision.

If it is navy, yes. However, SS says it's blue, not navy. I bought suits from SS and the color is not the same in person as it was on the website. 

 

My suggestion, try it on in the store. If you can't do that, I guess buy it and if you don't like it, return it.

I would order it and see what you think.  It doesn't look exactly navy.  It is also textured, which I think makes it look a little more casual.  This one (http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/lazio-blue-plain/P4757I.html?cgid=Suits&prefn1=color&prefv1=Blue&prefn2=styleFit&prefv2=Classic-Lazio) may be more navy.  It also looks like a more formal fabric. 

 

Honestly either one will probably be good for interviews almost anywhere.  The cut of the Lazio is certainly business appropriate as long as you wear the right size.

Interesting that they didnt mark this suit as Super 120s wool

here are the photos of the lazio. Really like the suit, it's 100% wool from angelico very soft with a little texture. The color it's very well represented in the website.

Thank you, Ferdje, so would you consider this to be a versatile suit to be worn in wedding, business events ,etc?

I'm thinking about that coat as well. I tried it on in the store and it's much thicker than I expected. A very nice coat.

Faux uni means it looks like a solid color from a distance but up close is not.
