post #10501 of 14778

There's some new stuff up today.  I really like the blue hudson sc in s130.  Also the Washington Half sc in blue looks nice.  I noticed that all the Hudson sport coats are now half lined.  I really like that.  It's too bad they are all $500, which is on par with the Hudson suits.

Yeah, same here. But honestly, I'm not really a fan of linen or cotton suits, mostly because they tend to wrinkle easily and look sloppy. I prefer blends with those fabrics if I have to, because then they hold their structure better. Most recently, I purchased the La Spalla navy jacket made in Silk & Wool, and it has a light feel to it while still being more wrinkle-resistant.

@MrTopCat did you see the new brown Hudson suit.  I don't know if that's the shade of brown you're looking for, but it looks quite nice to me.

Cheers for the heads-up!

 

That Hudson is actually the perfect shade of brown, love the fabric details too and I like the Hudson fit a lot, but I've already bought a different suit like 2 weeks ago so I guess I'll be missing out on this one :cry:

For those of you with both Havana and Hudson, do they fit the same? The size advisor have the same measurements for the same size.

I think it depnds on your goal.  If your goal is to have it for a long time and you really like it, go for the Isaia, which is likely to be a fully canvessed, and at least a partially hand-made garment.

 

The canvessing will mold to your body and actually look better the more you wear it and will last you many good years.  I have an Isaia sport coat that I purchased on sale many years ago and I love it today even more than I did when I purchased it.  On the other hand, and I am not making any judgments here because I like SS and do own some of their items (and this is only my opinion), if you are not depending on or expecting longevity, the SS will work just fine. Now, the SS garment may be a very well-made garment. I am note sure if it's half canvessed or even full canvessed.   I dont know.  But the Isaia likely IS very well-made and I would bet money that it;s full canvessed.

 

I have a SS sport coat that I purchased only a year ago and frankly it doesnt appeal to me the way it did the first 5 times I wore it.  I think it's the diference in the hand work.  Machine made garments will be stiff and fail to "give" at stress points. Cleanings will also do a number on them, expediting its demise. The hand-made garment will be flexible, pliable, and supposedly that will provide the longevity.  This is only my opinion and others may differ and their opinions are equally valid.

 

Funny, I think internet pictures never do justice to a well-made suit.  I look at the Isaia suits on the Barneys web all the time and they look "OK". I saw a guy in one a few days ago, I had to stop myself from looking at his suit in admiration.  It was awesome. Of course you can tell the brand because he had the red coral thing on his lapel. But if you're going to pay THAT kind of money for a suit, you deserve to advertise it.

Very similarly.  I have one Havana and two Hudsons.  The Havana is very slightly slimmer than the Hudsons.  This could vary from item to item though.

 

@brnrth you see these every day.  What is your take?

Thank you. I have 2 Havanas and they fit me straight off the rack. I did try on a Hudson in a store of the same size but found it tight.

I guess I will just have to take my chances when ordering online.

Speaking of the Hudson, anyone have one of these? It's the "Brown Plain" wool/linen/silk blend. Pics in the wild would be sweet. Not sure if the color is quite right.

I'm late to the spring/summer suit party but still need something light that could be worn as separates or together for outdoor weddings and such if the need were to arise. Short of having one, comments on the general fabric would be cool.

I'd be curious to know about this one too.  There are so many brown Hudsons.  I'm considering that one or the new wool/cashmere.  I know the summer suit makes more sense where I live.  But I love that wool/cashmere.

I, too, have 1 Havana and 2 Hudsons. The Havana is significantly tighter than the Hudson for me as well.

Although the Hudson and the Havana might look the same, they are noticeably different when paid a little more attention to detail.  You guys can clearly see the differences in the fit, but the Hudson jacket is designed to be slimmer than the Havana. I own several Havanas and one Hudson. The Havana jacket is also designed to be a bit longer, whereas the Hudson jacket is a little shorter by design.

 

On the new brown Hudson, I love it. If I didn't already have the blue equivalent (P4712 I believe) it would be mine.

I would steer clear of this suit. The fabric is very delicate, even to the point that I have seen cases that the label on the inside of the jacket rubs on the trouser and creates wear. Thuis fabric probably should never have been produced as a suit imo, probably better for trousers, but even at that it is not durable.

Thanks for the tips. Really love this fabric.

My Hudson actually fits considerably slimmer (As slim as a Washington fit) than my Havana, my Hudson (28.5") is also 1 full inch longer than my Havana (27.5"). The shoulder and sleeve measurements are pretty much identical though.

 

I really do think this is a one-off thing as I've tried on a Hudson which fits similarly to my Havana, as well the general consensus on here being that they're pretty similar.
