Investing in a decent umbrella is also a good idea.

Yep! I have a very casual work environment, so I buy most of my pieces with weekend-wearability in mind, which is why I chose the check over the solid. I love the Havana and Hudson cuts as well, but the structure of the Washington helps really make it a statement jacket.

I may be biased because I don't like ticket pockets, but peak lapels just look way too formal for casual outfits for me. I'd stay away.

Worth noting all the Washington odd-jackets have patch pockets, no ticket pocket.

I posted this in what are you wearing today some time ago.  It's a Washington half-lined, so it has patch pockets.  I dig it.  I wish it had a soft shoulder.  They went all Tom Ford with the Washington cuts, and I guess I'm okay with that.  Still a soft shoulder would look better, IMHO.

 

Tie is also Suitsupply, forgive the knot.  If you were wondering, shirt is a Barba and pants are Howard Yount.

Any opinions on this new Jort raincoat/Mackintosh? Tried the camel overcoat a few weeks ago, but sleeves were way too short. Might try this coat to see if it fits, I like the look but not sure yet if it is worth the €500.

Hello everyone!

 

I'm looking for my first flannel suit which can be decompleted, so that I could wear it separately. I want to buy a grey suit but I'm not sure if this one isn't to dark?

http://eu.suitsupply.com/en/suits/hudson-grey-plain/P3969.html

 

I'm planning to buy a second suit in the future (navy) so that I could combine four different outfits.

 

Thanks in advance for all your help!

You want a light grey and a dark blue. That will give you three options: light grey suit, dark blue suit, and light grey trousers with light blue jacket.  You also want to make sure the blue suit has casual details, like patch pockets and a soft shoulder.

 

There is also a fourth option with those two suits.  Be warned the fourth option is not SF approved, and if you see a forum member on the street they will be judging you.  The fourth option is wear the blue pants with the grey jacket.  Gasp!  I know, it sounds crazy.  Most on here wouldn't dream of doing it.  But most people won't even think that anything is wrong with it.

 

I have actually been fantasizing about the grey houndstooth 3 piece flannel.  My fantasy involves wearing the pants and vest with a dark blue flannel sport coat.  I think it could be pulled off quite well with these two suits.

 


Really cool Hudson

 

 

Havana I've been fantasizing about

I have to disagree - at their price point the fabrics shouldn't be pilling and fraying. That's a sign of cheap wool with short fibers. I've got 5 suitsupply suits and I have that crotch wear on almost all of them. They're all VBC super 110s. I've owned 10-15 other suits from various brands (Hugo boss, jcrew, hickey freeman, HSM etc) that had years of wear without ever fraying or pilling like the SS ones do. I'm quite disappointed in the SS fabrics and will have to consider buying suits from them ever again.it's unacceptable.

I own a few SS suits. Two of them are 3+ years old. The first suit I ever bought was in fact for my wedding which I wore all day. Even with my case of moderate "thigh rub" I've never had one SS wear down or pill like that.

ditto; i've got 3 SS suits, 2 flannel and 1 sharkshin. All are still going strong, and not a hint of pilling or wear anywhere.

Thank you for your reply, it helped me a lot! 

 

First of all, I'm wondered, that blue pants with grey jacket are seen in this way, could you or anyone bring more about it?

 

Thanks for the links. I have a question about the fabric - is there any risk, that the wool blend with cashmere will be pilling? I don't see the the detailed material composition on SS website...

Jamie, that type of wear is inexcusable. I agree, this type of issue should not be occurring at the price point. That is horrendous. I am surprised to hear such disparate experiences.
