Not sure if the light has impacted much but it seems like a much brighter blue on the website, this turned me off it but does look fine i the pics. Looks like a nice fit and suit.

In real life it is not as bright as displayed on their website. However, my pic is not completely accurate either. It's a pretty strong/intense blue that is quite bold but very nice.

I've been having trouble finding the kind of suit I want on the website. I'm getting my first suit, and I've been thinking either suit supply or indochino. I'll be in NYC visiting my family during thanksgiving, so I hope they are open that weekend, at least.

 

I'm looking for a suit for the summer in NYC, mostly, so a light-weight wool, grey or light grey, no patterns. Can someone link me to a suit on their website that fits that bill? thanks

Couple of questions:
1. What occasions will you wear the suit? Work? Evenings? Weddings?
2. What size do you normally wear?

I'm assuming since this is your first suit, you do not normally need to wear suits for work, hence will not know your size. First thing, buy a decent tape measure, read the SF 101 (top of the screen) on suiting and make sure you read, absorb and re-read all of the information and links about fit.

Suit Supply gets a lot of love because they provide decent suits (half-canvass) at a good price i.e. excellent value for money. Also, at least in London, I've found the SA's polite, informed, attentive and helpful.

A light-weight 3/4 season wool may suit you. Although depending on when and where you will be wearing the suit, another fabric like linen or fresco may suit you. Also, once we know the occasion for which you intend buying the suit and how frequently it will be worn, posters can then help and advise you on stylistic choices.

I'm always disquietened when people automatically consider the MTM path. Unless you have an awkward body shape, and/or specific construction / fabric requirements, OTR is arguably better - especially online MTM providers for one's first suit!

Since you'll be in NYC for thanksgiving, you may have ample opportunity to visit a bunch of outlets to try on suits and get a feel for what suits you (pardon the pun) and what doesn't - especially in terms of fit.

Sure.

 

1: I'm a 20 year old university student. I probably won't be wearing it much during the school year, but I spend my summer months in NYC, which is when I enjoy dressing well, meeting new people, going to different events, etc. Basically I want something that I can wear around SoHo, to nice dinner dates, etc.

 

2. I'm a 35 chest, regular. 30 waist.

 

Yeah, I'm still unsure about the material. NYC in the summer is pretty outrageous at times in terms of heat or humidity. However, a linen suit ins't exactly the kind of look I'm going for, which is why I'm thinking a summer-weight wool would be the best option. I probably won't wear it too often, but maybe 8-10 times a month?

 

And I know online MTM can be very inconsistent, but I just assumed that due to my skinny nature (5'11", 145lbs), that I would get the best fit that way. However, after looking at suit supply, I figured that might be the better option (especially for my budget, which is probably under $500. Asides from Suit Supply, what other places in NYC would you recommend? I just heard suit supply is the slimmest fitting, which is definitely what I'm going for.

What cut suit is that?

The NYC store is my only frame of reference, and RIX is smaller in both square footage and stock than NY. I was in that mall three or four times over the space of five days recently and never saw any customers in the shop. Looked to be three women working at any one time, so you can expect immediate attention.

Have you considered a couple of sports coats instead of a suit? For the same price as a suit, you could get 2 sports coats, which would work with chinos, matching belt and shoes (maybe suede in sand / stone colour)? Check out the Guide to Coherent Sportcoat thread for ideas - particularly picture no.4. You'll still look well-dressed, and will have more variety than simply wearing the same suit. If you are thinking of going down the suit route and will be wearing it 8-10 times a month in a NYC summer (I'm in London - no comparison), then you may need to think tropical wool or something like fresco or linen.

 

In terms of fit, I'm an inch taller than you but 35lbs heavier! Yeah, you are skinny! The best way to determine if OTR is the way to go is to measure yourself. Suit Supply have an online size advisor for their suits to allow you to input your measurements and determine which suit is appropriate (if any) for your measurements. I'm pretty much a 40R with minimal alterations - besides the taking the chest in a little, or lengthening sleeves 1/4 inch.

 

Sadly, since I live the other side of the Atlantic, I'm not au fait with NYC outlets. If you perform a search using NYC as a search term, there should be a number of threads where you can pick up recommendations to try on suits / sports jackets.

Thanks. That's helpful info about a sportcoat, maybe I should get one or two of those.. though I still feel like I want a full-on suit. I'll definitely look around and see what my options are. Thanks for your help!

Only go on-line MTM as a last resort. Until you get used to wearing a suit and what it should look like you'll have a hard time just evaluating the suit you get for a remake if it's not perfect out of the box (which it most likely won't be). You may also want to get a slim fitting 36 rather than a 35 for the extra length. If it's a 7 inch drop, then the pants won't be too off. Try a few bodies and see what works. You should get some good help from their staff.

Haven't read through the 70 pages, but one questions: Is there any sleeve allowance on their suits? 

I need to size down because of shoulders, but at the cost of sleeve length (normally 25.5, the sizing I'm going to has 24.5'' sleeves)
