However, it only has the larger sizes in stock frown.gif

On a side note - Did you know that you can now contact SS via Whatsapp? I just tried it out and it's awesome!

I heard they answer the phone when you call them too...


Camel overcoats are in this year, I would have gotten one instead of the navy one I picked up, but I had picked up a brown/tan herringbone overcoat last year

I didn't like the slim fit at all.

 

The fabric and collar is excellent but there was too much fabric around the arms as well as the torso.

 

I have a super slim in the mail - I will post a picture as soon as it comes through the door. :)

Lol y'all can tell me you don't think a 42 will work but I'm telling you now that my chest measures 41-41.5".  I know its a different brand but I have a J.Crew topcoat in a 42 that my arm actually slight protrudes on as well.

Will go to Philly on Friday and see what's up.  Might be forced to deal with a 40R purely because of the difficulties I might face on trousers for a 42R

Susu slim fit it's not very slim at all. The extra slim fit is slim.

I'll tell you like another member basically said that your phone is in the way for anyone to really tell you how it fits. You're barely showing one shoulder in the picture, so we won't tell you to size up if other areas already appear to big which we can't really tell. In regards to your comparison to Jcrew, their items are much smaller when compared size to size. I have broader shoulders and a bigger chest for my size and sizing up only one in Jcrew wasn't enough because their suits are definitely narrower. Try taking another picture without you holding anything if you still want the SF opinion.

I've gotten my SuitSuipply shirts but they are a bit baggy (slim fit) but a bigger issue is the sleeves (maybe 1.5 inches too long).

Has anyone gotten sleeves altered? How much should I be looking to pay? Wondering if it's worth it if I paid about 40 for each shirt already.

I have the exact opposite experience with SuitSupply shirts - Slim fit fits me perfectly all the way around BUT I find the sleeves really tight. No so much when standing still, but when bending my arms part 90° (flexing, you might say), the sleeve feels constricting around the biceps, elbow and upper forearm. That's the only reason keeping my from buying more SuitSupply shirts. I also think they would benefit from making the sleeves ½" longer.

 

I understand that some people with lower body fat % than me might find the Slim fit too loose, because I carry an extra layer to protect me from the Canadian cold weather. Say, someone with a body fat % lower than 15-16% might prefer the Extra Slim.

I have the same size chest as you, and think 42R will be too large.

 

It was for me.

The chest on the size 40 jacket is big on you. Get a 42 if you want, it will make no difference to me. I think it will look like you are wearing your dad's jacket, but you dont seem to care what other people think despite asking for opinions. If you think the shoulders protrude too much, maybe try a different vendor or cut, or perhaps go made to measure.

 

For the record, I'm a 41 chest, 5'11", 176 and wear a 38 R in most Suit Supply jackets.

would you guys recommend I size up this Havana? got a 40R but feel I should exchange for a 42R as my arm slightly protrudes past the natural shoulder. Note that I've been making progress in the gym and foresee size to go up a bit more over the course of the year.

my biggest concern is that the trousers on the 42 might be way too big by then. even with prospective alterations, it might be too much work to keep a proper balance. (5'10", 175-180lbs. normally wear a 31 waist for trousers)



I'm 6'2 210lbs and wear a 42R. Havanas and Hudsons are a little short, just barely covering my ass, but fit well otherwise.

I think this 40R is a great fit for you and remember the Havana's soft shoulders will fit differently than a structured shoulder.

With that said, it certainly wouldn't hurt to have a 40 and 42 to try on side by side. It's possible the picture isn't telling the whole story, or maybe you'll see that the 40 fits better than you originally thought.

I also find SuitSupply slim to be not-so-slim-at-all. @MTB-85 do post pics when you get the extra slim, curious to see what they look like.

My  slim shirt isn't so slim, but it's too bad. My CT extra slim is less slim; the best is Hawes Curtis, but their collars aren't as good for use with ties...

post #11504 of 13759
It's all relative. I have a 29 inch waist and wear a 38 jacket so most extra slim shirts are still baggy in the stomach but I can't wear them in the chest/shoulders.

Indeed. I may attempt to have some taken in; but not the denim/chambray.
