I like leaving top button of single breasted lapel waistcoat unbuttoned. It gives it a three roll two look, kind of.

Still trying to build foundational suiting so didn't want to get something too crazy. I like the wide peak lapels and I feel like it might be a good combo with a medium grey. Hopefully it gets here soon and I can post some pics.

 

Do you notice any shine to that suit? I've been eyeing it but it looks shiny on the website, for lack of a better term. It doesn't seem like it from your pics but would love to hear your feedback. Thanks man!

I have a question for you SuitSupply experts. Of all the  navy jackets in the store which is the one you would consider the most "all season"? I have a navy summer jacket and a navy winter jacket but I am getting tired of having the same thing twice taking up space in the closet and since none of them are to my satisfaction at this point (they are quite old already) I am thinking of getting a new navy jacket that would do for every season. 

 

Over here we don't get too cold in the winter and it is only for a few weeks at the most so I think I can pull of a lighter jacket in the winter. 

 

Anyways, what do you think? Any experiences you can share with a concrete model?

I have a navy York which is a more structured, British kind of cut. Better for fall/winter, but I pull it off year round with lighter colors. 

 

I would think anything standard like the Napoli or Lazio would work well year round. Maybe also look at the Sienna.

The navy Hudson (technically a suit), is a nice one.  I mostly wear it as a sportcoat.  If Suitsupply pants don't work for you, you could always give them to charity and just keep the jacket.  The whole suits is $500.  The fabric is 50/50 cotton/wool.  It is fairly light, but should be okay in cooler weather too.

Thank you both for your input. I was considering the use of that Hudson suit as an orphan jacket but I have my doubts... $500 for a cotton blend jacket seems a bit much for me... I will end up buying two jackets and I don't want to haha... The crappy thing is the spring/summer months, we really get high temperatures around here... I will keep browsing through their web until my eyes bleed :P

 

Thanks guys!

This one seems to be pretty popular and it has a looser weave so it should be okay in the summer.

It's unlined, so I'm not sure if that's something you personally would want. If I need a navy sportscoat, that would be my choice.

Just wanted to give you guys a big thank you.

After all of your advice I went ahead and got the Hudson Blue Plain in 38L.

I am in love with the color and fabric, shoulders fit wonderfully and straight out of the box no collar gap. However, the pants are wayyyyy too long which was expected lol.

Once tailored I'll get some pictures in.

Lazio, Hudson: 9.5 cm
Sienna, Havana, Mercer: 7.5 cm
Copenhagen: 7 cm
Jort, La Spalla: 8.5 cm
Soho, Washington: 9 cm
Madison: 11 cm

 

I asked customer service about lapel widths yesterday. Apparently the Lazio has been updated to 8.5 cm. Can anyone confirm this?

 

Nothing else has changed since Froosh's post, and CS also indicate that the new Harris cut has a 9 cm lapel.

I've seen some recent Lazios and didn't notice them being any smaller.  I hope this ins't true.

I'm in need of a navy suit for Christmas and thought of going with SS' navy Napoli suit (Purple Line). Although, there seems to be sizing problem: I'm a size 44 (EU) in Havana. When comparing the Napoli 44 with the Havana, the sizing seems completely different in the shoulder area; the Havana's shoulders are 43 cm wide, while the Napoli is 45 cm.

 

Do you think the Napoli may still fit, as it has more padding in the shoulder, compared to the Havana? Or should I go with a different fit? This suit isn't available in 42, and if still was, the trousers would be too tight in the waist.

 

I know that the York has slimmer shoulders, but I don't want the buttons to be placed too low; my upper body is pretty short.

Thanks, the tie is from Suitsupply S/S 2015 but is no longer for sale (On the EU/UK store at least).

An identical version in brown is still available though: http://eu.suitsupply.com/en_GB/ties/brown-tie/D151056.html

 

I agree with @fieldofdreams reasoning. If the waistcoat has lapels I leave the bottom and top button unbuttoned as it often gives it a nice lapel roll, similiar to that of a 3-roll-2 or 3 button jacket. On a non-lapelled or double-breasted waistcoat I only unbutton the bottom button.

Anyone can confirm/infirm whether or not the Lazio has seen it's lapels reduced in width?
