This is my first post here. I am looking for new suit and I really like the Suitsupply styles and the price. 

 

The problem is that I am quite short (5'9 , 175 cm) and wide (80 kg). I train a lot at the gym so I think that the narrowest suit won't fit me. I own one suit which is size 52, and I think the suit is quite slim fit. 

 

I really like the look of Sienna. Do you think it would fit me if I choose maybe the size 26 (short)?

 

I am probably around your build. 173 cm, 78 kg, broad chest with an 8 in drop. My roommate (188 cm, 80kg) also lifts weights, and we find that Napoli complements us best. I'm a 38R in the Napoli.

Yes, sounds familiar. I think I could try Napoli. Maybe in size 40 because I got a slim fit suit in size 42. I think I have to visit tailor in any case.

I love it. It can definitely be used as an odd jacket too.


Thanks. I will probably give this one a try.

FWIW I love it also.  I'm considering it or the darker brown herringbone flannel Hudson.  I love the Hudson in general, and those two are right up my alley.

About how much room is there to let out in the upper waist area of a Napoli jacket?

post #10446 of 13752

Doe anyone know if Suitsupply expanded their options on their Blue-line personal tailoring mtm? I want to opt for the lazio fit with a navy fabric.

We have a half inch in each back seam of a jacket, so we can let out a total of 1.5"

Sorry, blue line MTM is still based off of the Napoli fit. However right now we have a nice windowpane Lazio in navy that you might like..

I am really only looking for a solid navy color as of now without any patterns. I assume you work as a representative for SuitSupply? Do you by any chance know if SuitSupply will release a Lazio fit in a solid navy anytime soon?

Have you seen this one in person.  I have not. But it looks close to navy.  Maybe not quite dark enough.

not a representative, but I do work for the company; just here to give some advice where I can. Unfortunately we don't really know what we are getting until we get it. Across the board however, you may not find a truly navy Lazio, because the idea behind the fit is to provide a traditional style with fashionable fabrics. Not to say navy isn't fashionable, but it's ranging on the more conservative. The suit that @fieldofdreams linked is a good example of a Lazio that can be used as such. That might be the closest thing you could find to a truly navy Lazio

Hi

 

I have a question regarding SuitSupply's tailoring service. Is it common practice to remove the extra fabric after tapering the waist? 

 

When I visited Amsterdam this summer I bought a dark grey Napoli. They could not get the alterations done in time for my departure, but offered to ship it to my home address. When the suit arrived, they had tapered the waist too much. I brought it to a local tailor, but she said that she could not do anything as the extra fabric was removed. 

 

 

There is no X around the top button, but the fact is that my first proper suit splurge is uncomfortable to wear buttoned. In addition, it looks a bit strange as the aggressively tapered waist makes the fabric shoot out from the waist towards the hips, accentuating my hips instead of my shoulders and creating a pear shape, if that makes any sense. And the worst thing is that, as far as I know, I can not do anything to change it.

Based on the way the SA's try to style their suits, and fit customers into things that shouldn't fit them, I would never trust SuSu tailoring to give me a finished product that actually fits. That's what my own guy is for. Sad to say, you're probably screwed on this suit.
