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.

Thank you. It seems like I will have to take a leap of faith. smile.gif

Looking to purchase my first SuSu suit (my other suit fits pretty horrible). I've been looking at the sienna as my top choice but will definitely take advantage of the free returns. I wanted a navy suit but not sure which one to pick between the navy plain s130/s140 or the birdseye. If this were to be my one and only suit(I don't wear them often) which material should I choose?

Based on not wearing it often, I don't think any of them would be a bad choice. In regards to the Birdseye, it gives a bit of texture that you may like more than a solid of the other two.

If it were m I'd go with the birdseye. The fabric looks beautiful in pictures. I personally don't think the S140 is worth the extra dough. Especially considering it's probably somewhat less durable.

I think either of the four would be a good choice.

If you can afford it, the navy check La Spalla also looks great to me.

Thanks for the feedback. I was interested in the birdeye just because the slight texture does set it apart from the plain navy. I noticed it says blue birdseye but in the description it says "this elegant navy suit" so I assumed it was navy especially from the picture.

I've seen the suit in person and I personally didn't find it to be as dark as the photos show; particularly if you're outside in the sun or with natural light.

Here's a couple of admittedly poor photos of my new Bleecker double breasted coat. Sorry these don't show too much of the fit - I don't have my camera or tripod with me at the moment, so these were the best I could do. When I get my camera I'll set up a few proper full length pics with good lighting. 

 

In short - very nice coat for the money. Fabric is not what I would think of as traditional overcoat material - it's not particularly hefty, but to me that makes it a little more versatile as it can be worn outside of the deep winter months as well. I do a lot of walking and find I get hot easily, so for me the lighter weight is a good thing. Plus, you can always just throw on a sweater or wear a scarf if it's a little colder. 

 

It's definitely not a traditional overcoat - it's nowhere near full length. On my 6"3 frame, it comes a bit above my knees, which in my mind makes it more of a topcoat. It still looks good with a suit though, and I've worn this casually with jeans and a sweater and it looks great too. 

 

Any questions, just ask.

Those buttons don't look bad IRL! What size do you wear? I'm 6'2 and was planning on getting a 42R.

No, they're really not too bad in real life! I got a 44L, but this is the only thing I've ever been able to fit into from SuitSupply. I wear a 44L pretty much everywhere else in suits and jackets, so I would just get your normal size.

I own this coat and I 100% agree with every point you've made here, even down to the walking a lot and feeling warm too easily.

 

Great coat, I highly recommend it as a staple piece.

I noticed the La Spalla is full canvas. Is it worth the extra $$$? I can afford it but just wondering if it's actually worth it if I won't be wearing it too often.
