I only have a blue Napoli (plain); I'm wondering what would make a good second suit? Something charcoal? Any recommendations?

 

What are you wearing them for? Good starting colors for business are navy and charcoal. As seen above, I think the Lazio is a pretty classic fit - just slightly wider lapels.

@MrTopCat; where are your shirts from?

Work mostly (functions, meetings, conferences) - at work we can where what we want (except if it's a suit & tie, then people start making jokes :(

 

Charcoal lazio would be good - kind of fancied something with a check or stripe, though a plain flannel would also be rather nice I suppose.

There is a pretty nice charcoal flannel Hudson.

Any chance you could link to which one? I'll probably size up for Hudson, going by my Napoli.

Note on the tie discussion - I would advise against SuSu ties. They are not very good in terms of fit and quality, even for their moderate price point.

 

I would much rather recommend EG Capelli ties (http://www.patriziocappelli.it/catalog/). Prices there range from 80 to 90 EUR, a bit more expensive than SuSu, but, trust me, their ties are much better and even offer some customization (tie width/lenght). I would favorably compare their quality to Drake's.

 

On another note, there is a new suit model on the SuSu website - the "Athletic" (http://eu.suitsupply.com/en/suits/athletic-blue-plain/P2529A.html?cgid=Suits&prefn1=styleFit&prefv1=Contemporary-Athletic). Maybe someone has already checked it out (in store, maybe)? I am interested in how it compares to their other models IRL.

Any good deals from SS accessories? Are the pocketsquares nice? I need to add something to my order to get free shipping. :nodding:

Something in charcoal or even medium-gray would be a good choice.

You might have to size up in the other fits, you might not. If you're between sizes it's not likely I guess. I sized down in a Napoli and never wear it because it's too tight. I'd try both sizes.

Thanks! My Napoli is borderline. I'm 6ft2 so I have the added complication of long or R sizing...!

If your Napoli is borderline too tight, you will undoubtedly need to size up.

Thanks for the info. I have one of theirs, in their slimmest fit, and it's still too large around the waist for what I would like. I use Hawes & Curtis now, for my daily non-tie shirts, though I can indeed wear ties with these.

 

I might try to get some CT shirts further darted, because I do like their collars, cuts, and prices.

I think Spier and Mackay are a favorable alternative to CT if you live in America (or Canada).  The prices are in Canadian dollars, which means they are about 25% less than listed price.  You can get there shirts shipped for under $100.  The one problem is they don't hold a lot of inventory.  I usually order when they release new shirts, which is about once a month.  The quality is far better than CT in my opinion.  Here is there thread.

Thank you, I will check them out. 

I live in the UK (I am currently in San Francisco on business, following a week in Canada).

 

Looking forward to trying my new Hudson when I get back. Hope the fit is good, so that I can have two winter suits (napoli 40R is blue flannel almost subtle stripe, went 42R in the Hudson so we'll see how that works out.

 

I would like a light coloured linen suit for the coming summer, and also something with a check, perhaps a lazio blue check.  Iwould also like a very formal non-flannel navy suit that I can wear for many occasions.

 

It's fun, all this, I just hope the fits turn out good. For my first real suit, my Napoli is 95% great, in my eyes at least!

CT are good shirts, but do keep in mind that their collars are fused and somewhat stiff (per my taste). Their collar points are also quite short on the spread collars, which makes it difficult to match them to some suit jackets (collar gap).

 

My choice for shirts is TM Lewin http://www.tmlewin.co.uk - usually good deals for buying 4 or more shirts. Their collars and cuffs are unfused, so they fit more naturally and stay in good shape after many washes (some of my TML shirts are 3+ years old with regular wear, and they still look good).

 

Hope it helps.
