Picked up a couple susu knitwear pieces. Sizing on site was actually helpful and worked out spot on.

The cashmere blends with some pieces is quite nice for the price.

Tempted by the waistcoast pictured on here a cpl pages back.

Can I get some advice on this suit? I purchased a size 32 in napoli. I took it to a tailor and he said the shoulders are 1/8 inch too wide. I'm not sure if it's worth the $60 to narrow the shoulders or if I should try another fit instead. With that being said, if it's worth keeping, what would alteration would I need to make the suit fit better? Is the overall proportion of the suit okay? Should I go more slim or is this slim enough? The tailor said if I wanted it more slim then I would be giving up some mobility. Thanks all!

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..

I love your fits and style in general Chocsosa - are you really 6' 9"?? You must wear the long sizes in suitsupply??

I don't know what kind of tailor would alter suit shoulders for $60, but the shoulder on your suit actually looks too small to me. The jacket also looks a little too small for you in general.

Yes I am and pretty much yes I do.. Most of the collections work in a L except the Sienna that I think is cut a little shorter.. I could be wrong though... Thanks for the words @BlairW!

He told me it was $60 to narrow the shoulders. This is my first suit, so I am not sure how pricing works. I am located in San Francisco. When you say the jacket looks small, are you talking about the length? I am a small guy (5'6"), so should I size up to a 34 or try another fit in a size 32?

It fits you very well in sleeves and jacket length. The chest seems a bit narrow, there's a bit of pulling when buttoned and it's causing the lapel to bow, you might be able to let that out. The shoulder divots are caused when either the jacket extends past your shoulder, or when your shoulder extends past the jacket and pushes out on the fabric. It's hard to tell the cause. I would go up a size at the expense of length, but that's a compromise buying OTR

Recieved my new Washington Half - just got it back from the tailors. What a suit! Sleeves needed to be shortened from the shoulder, but other than that it's perfect. I love the lapels - much prefer it to the standard Washington - and the fabric is very nice indeed.

Looks like this one actually has been removed from the main site in advance of being sent to the outlet, so I grabbed it just in time!

^^ looks very nice - love the fabric!

Your shoulders look pretty close to correct. Setting expectations, it is almost impossible to get a perfect fit OTR, but that doesn't mean you can get something that is fits very well. the slight divot in the shoulder usually comes from the sloping of your shoulder being more drastic than the cut of the suit shoulders. Its not an issues but it looks rather nice so far.

 

I wouldn't pay a tailor to fix it for a couple of reasons: 1. Cutting from the shoulder is very risky. Not many tailors can do it well and it would really change the integrity of the suit itself. 2. Unless you really trust this tailor, again most people might end up butchering it. 

 

If you ever want to get rid of the divot, opt for a softer shoulder (one with less padding) and it will almost always get rid of the divot because it allows for more wiggle room in shoulder sloping. 

 

It's hard to say if it is too tight without seeing it in person. It shows very slight signs of tugging on the suit but not bad by any means, it looks like it should a good hourglass shape on the sides (front and back), I would argue against it from this picture alone. Just remember that if you want a see if it is tailor along the body, have a friend pinch the side seams on the body and if there is around 0.5 inch of fabric on the pinch all the way down, then it is tailored and you should not take in anymore. 

 

Looks like a good fit.

 

Cheers!

Fabric looks really nice, but I'm not a fan of the lapels. Seems like they're going for a Tom Ford lookalike, which I've never liked because I think the gorge is too low. I believe their 3-roll-2 Washington has a higher gorge and slightly more narrow lapel, which looks better IMO. I wish they'd stop putting working cuffs on their jackets from the factory.

How are the trousers on the Washington? High rise or mid rise? Heavily tapered?

Do any Suit Supply models have a high rise?  (Serious question.)
