You're unimpressed with the quality of a $600 suit because it's not on par with that of a $5000 suit? That makes no sense.

What you have to do is take your $500 Suitsupply to Neiman Marcus and compare it to a $4000 Zegna.  The difference in fabric quality is crazy.  And to think, you can only get 8 Lazios for the price of a Zegna.  This is ridiculous.  Also,  The fabric used on a La Spalla will be on par, if not better, than most of the stuff in a Nordstrom or Bloomingdales that's over twice the price.

If all fails go to your nearest Ralph Lauren store and ask to see Black label suits. You will know instantly the difference in fabric quality.

 

When I lived in NYC, I went to these stores and felt many of both fabrics in person, but am not well-versed enough in assessing the quality of fabrics to compare them objectively. I was asking for concrete reasons of why you think SS is of inferior quality, so I can be more informed when I buy, or don't buy them. I can't wrap my mind around people here recommending items that are 3-5x the price, citing difference in quality as the reason. If I wanted to buy a $2000 suit, (or even a $1000 suit), I probably wouldn't be in the SuitSupply thread.

I can't tell what point you're trying to get across here, but I think I agree with you.

fieldofdreams is being facetious. Of course there are "better" menswear offerings, but as pointed out, they cost 4x-8x more than what SuSu is selling.

Medwed is not making a valid point, he's just being argumentative.

for those that have experience with the sienna fit .......

do you find the shoulder to be SuSu's attempt at a spalla morbida ? i'm can't say for certain whether i like the execution or not. I'm a major fan of the Jort and while i know these are nothing alike, i'm curious what those that either own or have extensively tried on, think of it. i've tried my fair share of eidos, but sadly, i'm always between sizes. thought i might experiment over here.

I get where you're coming from. I have a Sienna myself and find the spalla camicia stitching somewhat inconsistent. I suspect though that is intentional. I do like the soft shoulders though. I can't imagine going back to something more structured or padded.

I'm interested in this question too and any general thoughts on SS wool-cashmere blend. I live in HK so am concerned it could be too warm. Looks great though!

I like the fabric a lot but sadly the La Spalla is out of my price range.

I would move to the Bay Area -- still California, but 60s year round. Sometimes 70s -- never 80s and 90s like in SoCal.

I do think that you can get away with summer SuSu wool/cashmere blends in LA on a cooler day.
But you're right -- living in a more weather-diverse climate enables you to wear a variety of styles

Okay.  I'll start packing.

It's like ordering two suits and  only receiving one.

Hey, but seriously, is it challenging finding well-breathing fabrics? Do you own lots of linen?

Do any La Spallas ever make it to the often-talked-about outlet? I never see them on eBay, either

Where I work, in Brentwood, the average summer day is in the low 80s with low humidity. Normally I wear whatever I feel like. The problem is the weather isn't much different in the winter. So winter suits are out of the question. We don't get the unbearable heat and humidity that plagues the rest of the country during summer.

*Bump

 

Is the Napoli fit for those that are SLIM and have broad shoulders or more of a narrow shoulders?
