Why would a suit wind up in the outlet? Is it a form of a diffusion line, or are the suits below the QC standards if the main stores?

This is basically it but like i said mine will be a more contemporary slim look. 
(Should get here in a day or two)

Cross-post from the Tailor thread.

 

This is my MTM suit and an OTR Havana jacket that I purchased the day I picked up the suit. Let me know what you guys think:

What do you all think?  I apologize about the shitty picture and the bad collar of my shirt.  I threw this on just for the sake of the picture:

The MTM looks good.. the balance is good.. the shoulders are spot on, the length and buttoning stance is good as well.. the downside.. the chest is a little snug..thus the lapels are bowing..they did not compensate as well for your slightly lower right shoulder so that is what might be affecting the slight pulling on the first or top button of the jacket...they might also need to let out the jacket at the hips as well.. thus the vents probably flare open a little..you might also need to rotate the sleeves slightly to compensate for the sleeve pitch in the back.. so rotate slightly forward..the pants are good except for a slight pitch issue in the back.. they are pretty good.. so I'll give the jacket a solid B.. the Havana jacket has more issues.. tight in the waist so needs to be let out there and maybe the hips..back pitch issues on the sleeves and maybe moving the top button up or down to compensate for the lowered right shoulder.. which helps the pulling as well.. give the jacket a C+..its ok in the shoulders and the chest.. just my opinion.. good purchases though..

Thanks. I'll bring that to the MTM tailor's attention. I'll probably bring the Havana jacket to a tailor this week to get it fixed.

If someone went there and offered to proxy a few London suits back, I'd be down. Just saying.

There is not much left. Before Christmas they had a lot of samples for FW 12 which did not make the collection. My colleague picked up three really nice SCs for 69€ each.
Suits where mostly Napoli in normal designs and colors and some other cuts in really wild color and pattern combinations.
If you live near the outlet there is no reason you should not go, but actually travelling there from a larger distance is not worth it.

In addition to the odd samples, they mostly have last year and last seasons offerings.  Same suits, same QC.  I have even seen the occasional suit I purchased at full price, eventually make its way to the outlet.    Suit supply does not do diffusion.

Does anyone know if the sizing and cut of their suit pants vary much between styles?

 

I ordered a 36 and 38 Napoli to try out and the 38 pants are perfect, but the jacket shoulders are too big.  The 36 jacket is close to perfect, but the pants are way too tight in the thighs (i have a somewhat muscular lower body).  Could a good tailor make the 36 pants fit like a 38?

 

Also, is there a pricing difference between in-store and online?

You can mix trousers and jackets to an extent in the Napoli in store, worth asking. It's only some fabrics they'll allow this in. No price difference though sometimes they reduce items in store. Not often though.

For those like myself who are looking forward to the spring/summer 2013 collection, I came across this video on youtube...http://youtu.be/CR53v2t1l9I

 

What do you think? 

 

For someone like myself who is just starting out a suit collection, the grey suits at 2:53 and 9:08 appeal to me. The sportsjacket at 8:07 seems pretty versatile also. Any idea of what cut these are just by eyeballing them? The Lazio and London fit me best, so I'm hoping they come out with something in grey for S/S!

 

edit: beware of some guy with a HUGE chest that has terrible bulging lapels at 6:10... he appears a few times in this video

Thanks for the link!

Can't really tell which cuts the suits are based on the video, though.
There are some nice ones in there, I just don't understand how they can't give their models the right sizes...

Exactly what I was thinking as I watched it.

I didn't realize ill fitting suits were the new style.

There was a handful of items that were of potential, but most was far too ludacris. It's a great company and business model, they are just too far on the cutting edge of fashion.
