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
It's not so much his chest as it is simply the wrong size jacket for his body. Hard to understand why the stylist wouldn't do a better job before releasing the models onto the runway.

I feel that they are (unfortunately imho) moving more and more in the "fashun"-direction.

There where no super-short jackets, cargo pants & the like a few seasons back. Sure Suitsupply never was only CBD (they always had loud patterns & peak-lapel-suits), but lately they are moving more and more into fahion.

I agree. I've been in the market for some modern sportcoats that can be used in the professional environment but also with some jeans. I was hoping Suitsupply could fit the bill, but their jackets are getting more Fashun. I saw one jacket (it might even be a suit coat) from the YouTube fashion show that had potential. Brooks Brothers is becoming more modern, and thus my business might be shifting in the sportcoat area.

I can't stand DB suits or jackets, and I feel patch pockets are far too cheap looking. All my opinion but it doesn't help with SS.

I am debating on picking up that navy Soho DB jacket

 

hmmmmmm

Looks like I'm late to the party. I just noticed Suitsupply's Georgetown store when I was riding the Circulator bus headed to Dupont Circle. Sounds like it's worth checking out.

That was painful to watch - the models all look uncomfortable and self-conscious; exactly the opposite of how a man should look in a suit.

About 99% of that video was awful.

So, my navy Havana suit arrived today. Pics below are straight out of the box. I have quite a few Lazio suits, but this is my first in a different cut. I really like the Havana, I must say. It's a little slimmer than the Lazio, and I might let it out a smidge in the waist. Other than that, the fit is pretty much spot on. The quality is really great considering the price you pay.

thanks. So does yours. I really like the shoulders on this cut !

I take it the havana suit has the same construction as the havana jackets?

Did you size according to the size guide or did you go after measurements?
post #1395 of 7515
