post #10471 of 13759

After years of not really paying attention to SuitSupply - everything I tried was always excruciatingly tight fitting on me - I took a shot at the Navy Bleecker Double Breasted overcoat. I've been lusting after a DB overcoat for years now with no luck, and thought I would at least give SS a chance before the outerwear inevitably sells out for another year.

 

Well, it just came in the mail and it's honestly one of the nicest coats I've ever owned and more than that - it fits perfectly! I cannot believe it! I'll post pictures soon if anybody is interested in seeing it.

Is it the one with the herringbone weave? If so, I've been thinking about purchasing it myself. The buttons look a little silly in the photos, but that wouldn't be terribly expensive to fix.

Also interested in this one.

I just dropped a 34R Havana Navy (it's way lighter than navy though) off at the tailor to have the sleeves shortened and will need to do the same thing - both the shoulder and the cuff - since it has to come up by like 2.5 inches (6+cm).

I'm only 5'5" but relatively muscular in the shoulders and chest so the 32R was too tight. The 34R fits pretty great everywhere except I wish it was just a smidgen shorter in the front. Not a ton, but obviously if Spandexter is 5'9" and wearing a 34 you can see my dilemma - though at this point in my clothing journey I'm trying to err on the longer side over shorter.

Oddly the back of the jacket seems to be a great length but they say on the site that it's 28.7" BOC and I measured it at 28.3" - the supposed length on the 32. This is only 0.3" longer in the back than an RLBL jacket I have, but in the front they are different by probably an inch or more. The SS jacket basically goes to the bottom of my thumb. Not sure which, if either, potentially has a balance issue but I'll see if I can get used to the longer length - certainly it's not to the point of being ridiculous or I wouldn't have kept it.

Similarly, the shoulders measured closer to the 32 size of 16.5 rather than 16.9 but that's more open to interpretation.

Lastly, I had my eye on a Hudson - but with the pleated shoulder it makes it doubly tough for a tailor to take it up at the shoulder. It's not a common skill to be able to do those types of shoulders so I would imagine for most people having that alteration done would mean losing that stylistic detail. That plus the functioning button holes = more trouble than it seems like a RTW jacket should cause you, really.

This is the jacket I bought, for reference:

This jacket was also in the S/S '15 collection, am I right?

Yep! In fact when I bought the 32 before returning it, it was still marked S/S - now it's marked F/W.

So after seeing a few members with this beautiful Light Brown Jort I decided to pick it up myself last month. Seems late to buy a jacket this light weight but living in California where it still has summer heat this time of the year, plus the drought we are in, this purchase just seemed right.

Have MTM prices dropped? I'm having a suit made for only £469 as opposed to the £569 quoted as the minimum on the site.

Outfit looks great. Your pants appear to have a very nice higher rise, what brand are they?

Went to check out a new suit at SS yesterday. I generally am a 44L and 36 waist. I tried the 44L Napoli cut on the purple line. The pants did not fit so they recommended I size up to a 46L. I have an athletic V build and big thighs (6'2 220)...they said I would need the waist of the jacket taken in and pants taken in towards the seat, waist, and inseam..now I know these are general tailoring needs for a suit to fit right but I am hesitant as to whether I should take the gamble or just come to terms that maybe SS is not a good fit for my body. I also feel that the shoulders seem a bit too broad for me..thoughts? Also is the fit on the blue line that much different? sorry for the horrible pics

You have several options here. The Napoli and Havana cuts both feature a few suits online that are sold as seperates. I'm close to your size (6'2, 215) and I wear a 42R, because the Rs are less snug than the L sizings and my shoulders fit the 42 best. This means the jackets are barely long enough, but I've had all my current SS purchases Style Forum approved.

My favorite suit is a navy Havana separates in travel wool. I ordered up a size in the pants and had my tailor take in the waist (I have a massive ass, so I did not need that altered). Obviously everyone carriest their weight/muscle differently, but I've been extremely happy going this route.

So I'd say try an R sizing (the R pants also have more room than the Ls), then try separates.

Definitely appreciate the advice. I did try the R size but my arms were way too long. I did take a look at the separates on the website and given that I am looking for a solid grey suit the only possible option is the napoli dark grey pinstripe which is sold out in my size sadly. I really would like to stay at the 500 range do you guys know of any other options comparable to SS.
