Midnight blue is a perfectly acceptable color for an overcoat. Black would be fine too. The bigger problem with SuSu overcoats, IMO, is the length. The shortness looks dumb.

I don't mind the length as too long gets in the way sitting down. I'm about 5'10 so I can see how it would be short if you are taller.

I can see it possibly looking a little better of you are 5'10 (I'm 6'1) but not by much. I live in Chicago though, so length isn't just an issue of looking good. Having a coat that falls below the knee is almost required in the winter. Here is a RL overcoat I have and the length is not only practical, but conforms to some traditional notions of proportion. This is the length I prefer.

That is a nice jacket.


To be honest, I go from heated house to heated garage to heated car to heated garage to heated office.

 

So the extra length isn't too needed for me as the amount of time I maybe outside is limited, save to run and get some coffee or meet someone quickly outside.  I used to own one of similar length and camel color which I loved but I found the extra length got in the way of sitting in the car and I hate taking off and putting on my coats repeatedly.

 

 

I'd tried taking some photos but my phone camera is meh.  Midnight blue.  I'm okay with that.  I have a midnight blue herringbone suit and this is even darker than that.

I've been on the lookout for a decent navy SC for winter for some time. There's not much out there available in a long, so I relented and bought this:

Not a huge fan of the Havana or soft shoulders but it has patch pockets and the fabric looks pretty nice. There were only 2 left in a 94, so I figured I had better jump on it before it sells out.

Gentlemen,

Few quick questions for you. Looking at the size charts between Lazio and Napoli, it appears that the pants are sized the same for the two models. Please confirm.

Also, how much extra fabric is there to let out in the waist, crotch and, possibly, thigh area?

Thanks

I wouldn't worry about the length either - I think it's good to have a mix of coats.

 

I have a dark brown wool Ulster coat that is full length and very heavy - this is great in the depths of the winter when it's really cold. Outside of that though, I don't really wear it because it's just too hefty. By comparison, my Suitsupply coat has been worn much more often, hence why I just bought another. The lightweight construction, fabric and shorter length have proven to be much more versatile for me on a day-to-day basis. 

 

Midnight blue sounds perfect for an overcoat by the way - very sleek. I'm sure it looks great!

Beautiful coat... you are lucky..if I want to go that route (in terms of length) I have to go bespoke or buy vintage..and I find all sort of fit issues that come from going the vintage route..anyways,

the full Hudson in effect..

A few thoughts.. I bought it in my size and I will admit it runs slim..the only alteration I did to this suit was to lengthen the sleeves..I do wear it a lot more casually just due to the casual construction with the unlined, soft construction and a 100% cotton (so a lot of weekend situations for work or casual weddings)..I like that I can break it up with other things and my wife seems to really love this suit..I really do believe that SS makes stuff for guys like me..Im 6"9 so buying stuff online is scary (is it long enough of a jacket and does it have a long enough inseam?) but this pretty much works for what I need it for..

What are the differences, if any, between the "classic" Jort and the "contemporary" Jort?

 

I tried searching the thread but couldn't find the answer, so apologies as I'm sure its covered somewhere.

@chocsosa Do you find the hudson to be the slimmest of suitsupply models? Or is it the havana? Honestly, in pictures you don't look anywhere near that tall, either way that model really suits your build.

So this is what CS says about the navy outer coat


"Thank you for your email. The production lighting on our webiste may have altered the color a tad. It is supposed to be a darker navy.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Kind regards,

Suitsupply Customer Service"

So very dark navy it is

Any experience with the design your own suit program?  I am skinny with broad shoulders, and the suit I have, I had to do too much tailoring to the pants and it caused them to drape a little funny.  The seperates I have for my suitsupply Tuxedo almost fit perfectly.  I want to go to the store and try on a few sizes of Lazio, washington and havana jackets and pants and see which fit best so I can order something through the design your own suit.

 

Does anybody know if they accept returns on these?
