Thank you. I might well be judging myself too harshly, but then this is styleforum! :)

Thank you. The navy has actually been taken in at the waist, and had "box" tailoring at the top of the shoulders. I love its fit. I will definitly buy more Napoli fits.

 

I wanted something that could more easily be worn as separates, hence looking at Hudson etc.

 

Anyway, I've taken up enough space with my issues for now. Thank you so much for all of your comments and thoughts. I really appreciate it.

I mentioned it a few pages back: Washington half-lined is indeed shorter than the regular Washington fit; it's just as long as the Havana.

2cm won't be noticeable IMO, my Washington didn't have pick stitching at the bottom and after alterations it still doesn't, so this is something you should ask the tailor who is alterating the suit jacket.

 

If you look closely at SS' own product pictures, you can see the pick stiching around the bottom hem (and the lapel, although that doesn't interfere with any tailor alterations): http://eu.suitsupply.com/sv/suits/washington-bla-enfargad/P4754.html?cgid=Suits&prefn1=styleFit&prefv1=Trend-Washington

Having some difficulty understanding my options. Suits are not sold as separates, correct? That is, if I'm a 40 chest, 31 waist, I'll have to have the top minimally altered and the pants taken in several inches? Based on a past experience elsewhere I'm reluctant to purchase pants that have to be altered too much.

I'm around a 38 chest and 28 waist. 10% body fat and I haven't had to much of a problem. As long as your thighs fit you shouldn't have to much of an issue.

I bought two Havanas which are the same size but one had a length of 28" whilst the other was 27.5", both are supposed to be 28.3".

 

I've seen much variation in the sleeve length, sometimes with one sleeve radically shorter than the other!

I was a "vestal virgin" until I bought these waistcoats from Suit Supply at the end of the year. The third one with a brown pattern is my favorite--had to get it from Europe via a proxy shipper since it was sold out on the US site.

Anyone have an idea when the spring/summer collection will be released? I recall fall/winter came out in September so if that is any indication, would it be March?

I ask as I'm debating between waiting for new suit releases or choosing from current stock. Thanks.

February 13th was the preview/pre-order.

 

From my order history it looks like March 10th might've been the full release. :embar:

Thank you Professor, Topcat.

I recently visited the brick and mortar store in Miami. Like most have said, the saleswoman WAY underestimated my size. I'm generally a 42S, but when she first introduced herself and I said I was interested in looking at suits, she looked me over and walked over to the 36 rack. I tried a jacket on to humor her, and then she walked me over to the 40s. Here, she claimed it would be a perfect fit, and still felt that way after I tried on the full suit. I practically had to demand a 42S, and lo and behold, that was my correct size.

 

I was looking for a solid, work appropriate navy, and settled on a 42S York. I assume it is this one. Does anybody have insight on the fabric, measurements, or personal experience with the York line? I remember reading that some of the suits had issues with pilling at the crotch after only very few wears. Also, I was thinking about waiting to try to find one during the European sale. How consistent are the measurements? Is it really necessary to try it on before buying? I'd have to use a proxy and may not be able to return if the fit isn't the same as the one I tried on in the store.

I would definitely try the suit on before you buy it. The eu and us measurements are the same. I have bought suits from the Amsterdam and DC store (napoli and lazio fits) they both fit the same measurement wise. It is really unsettling that they mark the suits up so high for us in the US compared to EU countries.

I e-mailed SuitSupply customer care about this and they answered that they have no information about when (and if) the outlet will be available again. I asked specifically about Italy, so I am unsure if this is a regional thing, if the outlet is simply not scheduled to launch anytime soon or if the people in customer care are simply uninformed about the outlet...
