Agree 1,000%. That function could be so cool, but is nearly useless (to me) as is.

This is a problem with many of SS’s products:   they often don’t provide even the most basic information about the cloth.   

 

This jacket, for example, is said to be constructed from “a refined blend of wool, silk, linen and cashmere,” but no indication is given of the relative percentages.  Amazing.

With RTW stuff, you can buy and return easy enough - it sucks, but it's doable. Is the MTO even returnable? I guess I shouldn't complain, they could easily make it "in store only".

Or you could call them and ask. They have the information, and will give it to you.

Hello,

I am trying to ascertain which style(s) and which size suit(s) best to my body shape.

May you give me your opinion?
Please do not take the fabric into account.

Many thanks in advance !

Fred


Let's start with the Sienna!

Sienna (EU size 44 / US size 34):




Trouser feels large under the bottom. I think it needs alterations to be more tapered.
The jacket feels slightly large in the shoulders: what do you think?
Overall, the jacket is very confortable to wear.


Sienna (EU size 42 / US size 32):




The trousers is way too tight in the waist! I can barely button it and I think it would explode if I sit. It clearly needs alteration. Is is possible to gain 3 or 4cm in circumference?
The jacket feels more fitted in the shoulders than the 44/34, while remaining (almost) as confortable.

A phone call? In 2016? Preposterous!

I'm just kidding, thanks for the tip.

I'm trying to get an idea as to how slim SS's trousers are. How do I take the upper thigh measurement (where do I place the measuring tape?). Can I compare by placing a proper fitting pair of pants flat on the floor and taking its measurements, or should that measurement be taken while wearing the pants?

That Lazio looks very nice. How's the fabric?

I'm not sure if it's a super 100 or if it's more like a hopsack. It breathes well. Sorry I'm not an expert on this subject.

They have swatch books for the Design Your Own Suit fabrics in the store. Not a lot of details in the book, but if you ask them they'll tell you the mill, etc.

 

I don't trust the Suitsupply pics on their website. When it comes to color they can be way off. If you're doing Design Your Own, I suggest looking at the swatch book in person if you're near a store.

All of the VBC stuff for design your own will be relatively similar anyways. Worsted, lightweight and slightly shiny. Whether it's super 100s or 110s doesn't matter much.

Definitely go with what's more comfortable in the shoulders. And I really believe the pants are already tight enough, anymore tapering seems silly. My opinion is to be comfortable in your outfit and thus you'll look more professional. The skinny trouser look will die out, I believe it's already in the process, Get something that will last even if you put on a little weight after a meal or so.

So, the lining stitching in both arms of my birds-eye Sienna suit fell apart, after being worn maybe 5 times. Unbelievable. 

post #12599 of 14293

SuitSupply quality is mediocre, they might have some almost decent fabrics and pattern/coloring but its mostly not worth it. I have tried on a bunch of jackets and suits and own one of their more expensive ones and it is a bad cut plainly put. Save up money and buy a real suit, you'll learn all kinds of stuff in the progress by going for the real thing.

Agreed. I've never been super-enthusiastic about the suit, which was basically an impulse buy.

 

Even so, making sure the stitching does not fall apart immediately after leaving the store seems a pretty low bar to clear. Never again.
