post #13516 of 13759

I love SuitSupply - but for the love of god, why does their sizing seem to be wildly inconsistent? I ordered a plain blue Napoli in the same size as my Washington fit - 46R - and the trousers on the Napoli are infinitely slimmer than the Washington. This is totally bizarre as the literature indicates that the Napoli is the most classic fitting suit, and the Washington is the most fashion forward, slim cut of the lot. 

 

What about the Sienna? Are the shoulders totally unpadded? Does it fit really slim? I'm considering giving it a go, as I like the styling. Thank god the returns process is free...

That's what I can't stand as well, and even in the same model you'll get a suit that fits differently. I was in store yesterday trying on a Lazio in my normal size and the sleeve length were much too short. One of the sales associates who refused to leave my side wanted to insist I could make it fit even after I said it was too short. He wanted me to rest my hands on my sides in front of him because apparently it will make a difference then when I do that alone. Then after him finally admitting it was short he said it could be lengthened and I just couldn't talk to the guy anymore because he said it would still look good with that big of a gap.

This was all after I told him I didn't need his help when he couldn't even find a cloth I was originally looking for on their IPad, insisted the cloth he was showing me on the tablet was the one I was talking about or that I was just confused, and I ended up having to pull out my phone and just show him myself. Fortunately this was the first bad experience I had with a sales associate but man I just realized how annoying it can be for someone to listen to fit advice from someone in tight pants and short jackets.

I assume the sales associates are on commission. I have had good success by explaining to the salesperson that I like to browse by myself and that I will absolutely come and find them when I am ready to checkout. Fortunately the last few times I have gone there I have gotten the same guy, and he knows the deal.

Chicago store has gone to rubbish, but thankfully I'm told corporate is bringing back some of the original managers to revamp the overall shopping experience.

 

I once seen a SA actually try to convince a conservative (assumingly) 50 somethings gentleman that a plaid DB suit would be a good idea. Regardless, I still believe that MTM (non Suitsupply) is a more compelling option when you're already paying $600 plus $100 in alterations.

Interesting that these are essentially separates, I want to try just the waistcoat out of this one

 

Damn that is bold. I can see how I would wear the jacket and waistcoat separately, but not the trousers.

Thanks I'll try this soon, unluckily I'm a size 32 which is one of the sizes that always seems to be out of stock, especially when I see something I really like (unless it came out very recently) and even then I have to be VERY quick.

 

I'm pretty sure at the start of the season a customer service representative on the website chat told me that there weren't going to be any double-breasted camel coats this year, so I decided to buy the brown double-breasted yak wool coat instead, which is quite annoying because I would've definitely kept an eye out if they had given me a heads-up.

That's fine as it doesn't really get that cold in London (for me at least), I often find with thicker coats I'll end up getting too warm, and if I take the coat off I'll feel cold, so Suitsupply seems to be the right balance for my winter coats for now, and I do really like some of the styles they have.

I don't get bothered by the actual temperature but by the windchill.

So, if it's in the 20s F ( ~5 C) in Stockholm, London, NYC and Chicago, it would feel coldest in Chicago and Stockholm, but would feel warmer in NYC and London as the latter two generally experience much less wind. So for me, I like to choose something that would still look non-bulky, but keep the wind at bay. I also tend to walk briskly so I overheat if I have too much on me.

I do remember walking around the Red Square in Moscow in early January one time, and it was about -38-40 C, so you could literally see your breath freeze

This one may be the warmest of the current SS crop. If you're not bothered by the bold herringbone pattern, I would ask their customer support about fabric weight.

Anyone wants to sell check trouser in grey or blue size 26??? This may be the wrong place to ask but the website is all out of stock in my size. PM me. Thanks.

For SuitSupply suits, the trousers are hemmed, with no extra fabric for cuffs, correct?

There is 4/5cm extra fabric. It is possible to make cuffs of the pants need to be shortend. It is possible to make a "false" cuff if you have arround 7/8cm extra fabric.

Wow, today they added 3 jackets, 2 Soho suits, 3 overcoats and a new waistcoat.

I am grabbing the dark green jacket personally.

The gray Soho suit will probably sell out in a matter of days. $499 Reda. I would have grabbed it except I just bought a Reda gray Havana suit a few weeks ago...

P.S. I knew this was going to be a slow rollout. I mean, they added the first pieces of the collection July 31, and it's now October 11, and they are still adding this year's FW

Am I seeing things wrong, or does the grey Soho appear to have patch pockets in the picture with the model and then jetted pockets in the other pictures?

I think the model is wearing the VBC Madison with patch pockets and no cuffs from the SS collection. It's very similar.

Doubtful

Things that end up in the outlet are either too expensive for popular demand (I am waiting personally for the blue Vicenza in cashmere that was 999 to appear in the outlet for 499) http://us.suitsupply.com/default/coats/blue-overcoat/J408I.html (When they took it away a few weeks ago, there were tons of sizes, so I know they have it in stock)

Or things that are too bold for most people (especially accessories like bags, etc)

This dark green jacket is pretty practical and sizes are already disappearing (but I am guessing they had a low initial stock and will restock in Nov-Dec)

Also. even if well-stocked, it won't be availble for outlet until 2018 as has been the pattern for the last few seasons.
