Thanks for the suggestions. I decided to try out a Navy Napoli, Navy York, and Grey Lazio (I would have gotten a navy Lazio if they had one. I didn't quite like the shades of blue that it has.) I ordered each in a 40L.

 

I received the suits today. Here's the Napoli:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the Lazio:

 

 

 

 

 

 

Here is the York:

 

 

 

 

 

I am not satisfied with the fit of any of these. The sleeves all seem short, especially on the Lazio. I understand that sleeve length can be a challenge with SS due to the functional buttons. I don't know if trying a 42L instead of 40L would be the way to go here. 

 

Also, the side of my right arm is not smooth with any of these, possibly from a shoulder imbalance I have between the left and right sides?

 

The pants in the pics are from the Napoli. Those each fit kind of snug in the waist and would probably need to be let out slightly to be comfortable.

 

Any suggestions on where to go from here?

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

So I went to the store and try out the suit today. I think the fit is pretty good. I couldn't take a picture of my back. There is a bit of extra fabric on my upper back but otherwise I am pretty satisfy with the fit. What do you guys think?

I think it looks very good! And that DB suit behind you is a looker... not for everyday wear but whenever you feel a little extravagant... looks awesome haha

Looks good on the shoulders, but the chest looks too tight. It should be closer to a V shape.

Thanks. Haha, that guy at the back does make the DB looks good.

Thanks. Yes. I always have the problem with OTR suit, the shoulder is right but then the lapel doesn't lay flat. Sizing up one the shoulders might not fit well. Maybe I can let out the chest a bit.

If you decide to size up, I'd try to Lazio since it's the slimmest fit, the Napoli would likely be too large to size up in.

The Lazio is slimmer, has a slightly more narrow shoulder, and I believe it's lapels are a quarter of an inch larger.

I have 1 suit in the Sienna and really love the cut, but would like something without a ticket pocket (I mostly like the minimal padding since I have an athletic frame). Do one of those 2 fit the bill more?

The Hudson and Havana don't have shoulder pads.  The Lazio has slightly more padding than the Sienna.  The Napoli is a more structured shoulder.  Lazio would probably fit the bill.  Hudson is probably my favorite overall cut.  Hudson may be too casual for you though, I don't know.  It does have patch pockets.

 

The Lazio is slimmer through the chest and shoulders.  It is also slimmer through the waist but only marginally.  The Napoli is actually more aggressively tapered.  I size down in Napoli and it is quite slim, while still providing room in the chest and shoulders.  Lazio's lapels are probably more like an inch wider, they're pretty big.  I prefer the Lazio hands down over Napoli.

The Lazio also has a lower buttoning point which is a lot more flattering IMO.

So I looked for the composition of the SuSu jacket (60% silk, 36% wool, 4% cashmere), and it is identical to the Isaia jacket. Of course, I'm sure the Isaia jacket has much more hand made details and it's made in Italy... but the cloth appear to be exactly the same.


Would you look that.  I'm not crazy about either of them really.  If I had to choose I'd take the SuSu and keep the change.

I received the same suit today and it's fantastic. The fabric is lovely. I think the Hudson is my favorite of all the SS fits, and I believe I've tried all but La Spalla.

That's great man! I like the fit and fabric a lot too. I do have some doubt on the wide lapels for me though. I am not a big guy and I don't know if I would look good with wide lapels.

 

I am also pondering the Havana Blue Plain jacket which has similar fit to Hudson (I think) and standard lapel width. The fabric is also quite interesting.

Oddly enough, I just saw the Havana Blue Plain jacket today as well and pulled the trigger on that. I also purchased the La Spalla Navy Plain (http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/jackets/la-spalla-navy-plain/C904I.html?cgid=Jackets) since it's only $140 more to compare. Both seem really nice.
