i doubt you will find any sc models that correspond to Napoli. Shoulderwise, it is probably the Washington half, but that is way slimmer in the body from what I can tell, and Havana and most of the other options have no or very little shoulder padding...

Hey everybody, first-time poster, long-time lurker here. This has been a very helpful and informative thread. I found this many, many pages back:

It's half-canvassed (as their RTW program), it's cheap but it's in no way a real MTM service. I would not recommend it.

 

Does anyone have any more information about suitsupply's MTM program, specifically their blue line?  I'm imagining that you'd get the same kind of fit as you would with their OTR suits and in-store tailors, but would be able to choose fabrics and linings and stuff. Like some other posters, I like the look and fit of the Lazio, but am disappointed that it doesn't come in staple colors. I was wondering if it would be possible to use the blue line MTM program to essentially order a Lazio in a dark navy or charcoal. It would be a little more expensive than the basic OTR Lazio, but it wouldn't need additional tailoring, would it? And it would still be cheaper than the Sienna, even without alterations. If I go in expecting a fit and quality comparable to their OTR Lazios, would I be disappointed?

Any thoughts on whether Suitsupply is good for someone who is tall and thin? (6'1"; ~140lbs)
Which suits work best?

Havana wool/cashmere blend. Not sure wether to keep or to return. Shoulder fit is good, but the coat could be more tapered and the back is quite messy. Also, the body is short for my taste, while the sleeves are long. Thoughts?

Length of body/sleeves is just fine. The fit in the back needs to be cleaned up by a tailor - but if you are trying on a garment with no alterations - what do you expect? Looks like a keeper.

Agree with Fidel. Looks as good as you can expect otr without additional tailoring.

I need to get in to Chicago to try some on...

I'm going to London tomorrow with the primary purpose of visiting SuitSupply and buying my first proper suit, and I'm admittedly a little apprehensive. It's easy enough for me to objectively critique the fit of a suit when I've got time to look at a photograph of somebody else wearing it, but I'm not sure I'll be able to take my time trying on different sizes or have enough sense to see what can be fixed with adjustments -- particularly if I've got a salesperson waiting on me. I'm considering visiting a store on Tuesday, trying on a few different suits and sizes, taking photographs and sharing them here, then -- if something looks good -- go back on Wednesday to buy it (w/ any alterations if needed).

Just thinking out loud since this is a big purchase for me; I start my trainee induction at my law firm in a few weeks and want to look the part from Day 1.

I think its already too aggressively tapered thus the vents are flaring open.. you are going to have to take out the hips to clean up the vents area and fix the collar roll at the top..Apart from that looks pretty good..

Just ordered my first Sienna suit. Hopefully I will be able to post a few pics later this week. I reckon the fit is pretty identical to the Lazio apart from the ticket pocket and the Spalla camicia.

When I asked in-store recently about their MTM service they said that all MTM suits are always the Napoli model and then adjusted from there. I was hoping to have a London suit in my choice of fabric + more extensively tailored but this isn't the cae.

That looks good. How do you like the pants?
Pretty sure I'm getting a Lazio suit but I'm worried it'll be too tight around my thighs.
post #1663 of 7540
Thanks omgitwes. i like the pants quite a lot actually. On me they are slim without being skinny. But I have rather thiin legs, so I can't really say whether they will fit your build. On the other hand, their return policy is great, so take a chance !

So, I just got my suitsupply suit back form their tailor, and I was quite shocked with the fit. They were supposed to take in the jacket a little, but it seems like they took in one side more than other. I actually think the suit was better before the tailoring...

 

There are these weird lines on my right shoulder, that won't go away, no matter how I stand.

 

 

There is insane collar gap on one side, while the other side fits quite nicely.

 

 

Here you can see that one lapel bulging out, while the other one seems to be ok.

 

 

Does anyone know why this happened? And more importantly, can it be fixed??

looks pretty messed up.
I would go in the store again and talk to them. Seems to be a clear mistake by them.
