My jacket size is a 42 so go figure. I have bought 42 suits on SuSu and the trousers were, honestly, like compression pants I wear to work out. Extremely tight. But a size 44 jacket won't do either, too many details to fix on that one... so I just opted to not buy suits from them, sadly.

I am somewhat similar...My jacket size is typically a 44L but in pants is where I have the issue. I generally have to buy a size 40 in SS separates and get them tailored down to a 35-36 in the waist just so it can fit my thighs which are about 27inches while sitting.

Any recommendations for a lazio? I need a profession suit for interviews. I tried on the Napoli in store, the jacket fits well but the pants are a smidge tight. I like the bigger lapels on the lazio so I was thinking about sizing up on it.

this one maybe looks pretty close to navy.  the problem with the lazio is that they rarely have them in staple, more conservative solids.

The hassle and money that goes into buying like this in SuSu is what makes go for local brands. They have similar fabrics but the "tweaking" is "on the house" if you are a member of their clubs (they usually have this sort of thing) and that is why I end up buying local... saves up time and money. ​

And also if the alterations go wrong you can always talk to the guys in person and not on the phone/computer.

 

In shirts and jackets I go with SuSu because they have cuts that fit me perfectly (at least to my taste) so I know I won't have any problems with them.

 

I guess that you don't have these problems since you live in Washington and I am sure there is a flaship store in the capital of the US but there is not one SuSu flagship in Spain... yet (here's hoping).

Or a convenient excuse for a weekend in Amsterdam?

LOL I have thought about it many times. Last time I went I forgot about SuSu, can't you believe it? I beat myself up everytime I remember it.

I went to Madrid and Amsterdam last december and forgot about Meermin, Carmina, and SuSu. I remembered on the plane ride home.

I typically wear a 44L as well... have to tailor in the waist (having a 35 inch waist) and skinny legs... so for the most part the pants fit me okay....I myself am eyeing that wool/linen Hudson from their spring collection.. would be easy to break up... looks like it does not wrinkle as much and its a solid blue...I believe the Hudson is bigger than than the Havana right?

Hey all - I have two Siennas in birdseye and it's pretty great so far just a little warm. I'm looking for something a little lighter - do any of you have experience with their "wool linen cashmere' blend like this:

or am I better off going for wool silk?

Or just wool

Makes me feel better :P
When you are visiting places and doing real "turism" you tend to forget about shopping, or you see it a hassle, at least I do...

In my size they fit almost identically.  I think you're referring to the wool/cotton hudson. I have it.  I think like 5 people on here bought it.  It's great.  It's a 50/50 blend.  I like it a lot.  It's different than anything I'm used to though.

How is it different?

It's the only 50/50 cotton wool suit I own which makes it different. It behaves more like wool than cotton. It does wrinkle more than wool and drapes less well. But it works despite those faults. I like it a lot. But I'm having trouble describing what I like. You should at least order if you think you might like it and return it if you don't.

I'll add that when I first received it I thought it would get used mostly as a blazer. Not the case. I wear it as a full suit just as often.

I have it as well and the cotton blend lends it to wear just as well with chinos or jeans as with wool trousers. I am under 30, and already standing out if I wear a blazer, so I almost never wear it with wool trousers. And if you wear it with the provided trousers it makes for a good casual or day time event suit.

I have a Napoli, 40R - do you think I should get a hudson in 40R or 42R? I think I tried on a Havana and though it was lovely fabric it wasn't as good a fit...

 

Thanks!
