I see some more new stuff on the EU website. A couple Hudsons, Lazio and Havana.

Or maybe you just have strong thighs...

God, I'd love to have that green Havana jacket. I mailed them inquiring about future restocks (size EU 44), received an answer stating that the jacket won't be restocked... :(

Just keep checking, I had a similar experience with one of the overcoats, ended up being restocked about 2 months later.

Anyone else find the armholes tight in any other fits? 

Hudson is slimmer through the arms than Havana, Lazio quite a bit roomier everywhere

Any feedback and RL pictures would be highly appreciated.

I just saw it in the store. The colour was a little more green IRL as I recall but wasn't loud or ostentatious by any means. It was a great looking coat at any rate.

It's one of my all-time best purchases. I would consider it a 4-season suit actually. If you need a semi-casual navy-blue suit, this is it!

How light/dark is the blue? Can you post, or have you posted, a real life picture of the suit? Thanks!

I work out regularly so it is not only with SuSu that I have to buy one or two sizes up from my regular waist size in order to fit my quads and glutes in them :facepalm:

I think your correct. I'm finding that the double breasted look seems to be reserved for overcoats and trench coats in the US.

If it looks good on you, don't be deterred by the rigidity of group-think. If we allow ourselves to be completely sartorially expressionless, we'd all wear navy and gray suits, black socks, oxfords, white shirts and rep ties. But we don't. We push the envelope on most of these things in even the most conservative of workplaces; colorful socks, tan shoes, cut-away collar shirts, funky ties, bracelets, monk trap shoes and loafers, suits with no padding, giant-sized sports watches, pinky rings (ok, maybe that's going too far) - the list goes on.  None of these things were traditionally acceptable in the conservative work environment. But we changed the environment by convention.   

 

All I am saying is, choose to be agressively individualistic in style, within a reasonable and balanced framework.  For instance, if you wear a db and like it, and it looks sharp on you, make it a nicely-fitting solid navy one (maybe with a reasonable sized belly)  and forgo the tan shoes, fedora, polka-dotted socks and bright pocket square on that day - maybe don't even wear a pocket square. Keep it clean.  But never let the contraints of yester-year or unstated rules completely control your flow.  Don't exagerate the prominence of work-dress rules. In reality, such rules are much more nuanced than we sometimes initially perceive.

I am considering the Havana Navy Plain Traveler jacket. I wrote the SS customer service and asked what are their most popular/reliable jackets, and they recommended the Traveler. I am looking for that everyday go-to jacket that can be both dressy and casual.

I like that it is navy and not blue. I assume that this means the color is darker.

I've did a little search in this thread but could not find anyone with a post with the Traveler in the "wild". Any comments or suggestions would be welcome. Thanks!

The SS collection in my closet includes a couple of Havanas, a Lazio, a Napoli, a Soho, and a tux.

I personally agree with you. Within a specific framework, one can express its own individuality.

I work in a conservative environment (Pharma industry), but I always wear what I like; SB or DB suits, monks, bal boots, chukkas and red socks.
Damn, how I love red socks. I always put them on to board meetings along with a conservative navy suit and brown monks.

Just grabbed to keep on being different. It's grey anyway...

I've seen the Traveler in person and the fabric is finer than I would like on a sport coat or casual jacket.  I would go for one of the other navy Havana sport coats to provide more texture and not look like an orphaned suit jacket.

What is your guys' opinion of the new double breasted waistcoats that just came out in this new wave?

Me too. I wear red socks on my "Don't 'F' with me" days. In fact, if I stay up late watching football tonight, red socks will probably be on tap for tomorrow. 

 

If you dress nicely, you probably stand out as being different anyway, so you may as well wear what you want to some degree, i.e, maybe a chalk-strip db with black/white spectator shoes and spats, a top hat, bow tie, a gold walking cane and a long black cloak might be taking it too far. hahaha!  

 

'Keep doing your thing, brother! There will always be jealous people playa hate'n on the style conscious ("Playa hate'n" - damn, did I just date myself?).
