Have to chime in here for a second. It's not necessarily a sign of a cheap wool, it's a sign of a delicate wool that probably should just be used for jacketing. However, due to people wanting to be in the current modes, everyone and their mother is now offering lightweight (< 9 Oz), fancy weaved and unlined garments, these combo's are prone to wear out rather quickly when under heavy strain (i.e. crotch area for trousers). There's a reason why you will not find 100% Cashmere 9 Oz trousers, albeit beautiful, the cloth is not able to withstand friction as well as a 14 Oz (standard weight a decade ago or so) worsted wool. 

 

If I were you I would be looking for alternatives in slightly heavier weight cloths with lower super numbers and avoid hopsacks, flannels,...

 

Edit: Also, I do agree with you that this shouldn't be happening, even when offering the latest fashions.

Jamie, I have the same problem with trousers and jeans, in general. While a better-quality fabric might prevent this, in my case, at least, it's my slightly bigger legs that cause the problems. In other words, if I were to lose a few pounds, there would be a gap in the crotch area and the friction would be either non-existent, or greatly reduced.

 

Just something to think about...

SuSu's obsession with tight everything might also contribute to the unnecessary wear in the crotch.

I agree with the above as well. If you bought susu the way that they intend, I am not surprised in premature crotch wearing.

And I agree that they use all sorts of fabrics that are probably not the best for pants. But they have the onus to not use dumb fabrics.

Exactly - it's one thing to have large thighs and rub every pair you wear. However, as in my own personal example, when only the SuSu stuff is disintegrating before your very eyes, while "lesser quality" suits are demonstrating no wear at all in the same area at 5+ years of constant wear, then there can be only one reason for the problem - and that's with SuSus fabrics.

Just received my Jort aw grey suit. Seems like SS has sized the suits one size down. I have the same spring summer suit, and I can confirm it's one size bigger. So guys if you are looking to purchase a Jort suit, I suggest to size up. Will post some pics latter.

The grey flannel check?  If so, how does it look IRL?

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...


According to this thread, there have been issues with wool/cashmere blends pilling.  I have one such suit, and it has not.  It's more than likely a 95/5 blend.

 

It comes down to wearing a darker pant with a lighter jacket.  It's much harder to pull off.  On this forum you will definitely notice a disdain towards dark blue pants and any shade of grey jackets worn separately or together.  The one exception is that when they are part of a suit, they are obviously not frowned upon.  I'm sure it was written somewhere at some point.

You should also check the measurements on the other suit when it arrives. SS's QA is not the greatest, there can be inconsistencies between models. It could be that the Jort you received has this problem, or it could very well be that they changed the sizing, although this seems quite odd.

 

Even though I know my size for most models, I always order two jackets or suits in the same size, and return the one that fits worse.

I've had it with SuSu.

 

Inconsistent sizing and a refund policy that takes forever to be processed.

 

I'm still waiting for refunds for suits they received 6 weeks ago. Ridiculous.

Just to provide an additional data point, I checked my Napoli pants today, and they have some slight pilling in the crotch, almost like little threads are coming off. I purchased it in July, and have worn it once a week since. This is the $499 blue line dark grey plain. Pictures don't really show much, but here they are.

I've never really observed the crotch of my pants, so I checked others for reference:

I have a pair of Hugo boss "virgin wool" pants that have a similar amount of pilling, but have worn them for over a year. And they're much more snug than the Napoli pants.

I have a beater pair of Louis Raphael wool pants from Nordstrom rack, and they have very little crotch wear at all, but I've worn them heavily for two years. the waistband is losing its shape though. I guess it makes sense that they hold up better since the wool feels a little less luxurious the others, but they also cost $65 and will probably outlast the Napoli pants.

How would a tailor fix this issue? Can you patch over it, since most people wouldn't see the seam of your crotch anyway?

Did you email them or use the website chat feature?

 

I recently refunded something and didn't get a refund for a week, then I used the chat feature and it was processed immediately.

Yep - multiple times

 

I received the SuSu email "Your return has been received and refund is being processed" but never got the actual PayPal refund. 

 

I've escalated to a dispute on PayPal. 

post #10650 of 13742

I highly doubt SuSu is trying to con you out of a refund. I've returned (and purchased) many things along with many others here, and returns have always been processed eventually (for me at least). 

 

I agree that it's not ideal to wait but I think escalating it and disputing the charge is a bit much.
