post #1711 of 6206

The Sienna has more hand made details.. the shoulders are handmade and set as well as the sleeves..the canvas as well is stitched by hand.. what this does is that it allows the jacket to conform to your body a lot better..you will not find any half canvass suit mass produced that has hand work.. most are machine worked like the Napoli. In terms of fit the shoulders are narrower and the armholes a little higher with a lowered button stance then the Napoli. Funny enough out of my two Napoli's, my gray one has pretty high armholes and the other lowered armholes.. not as low as some of the stuff you see out there but still lowered than expected..The pants are pretty slim.. I'm lucky I have stick legs for my size.. anything beyond stick legs and waist will not fit in the pants I think. hand-work will always require more money in my mind as well..I have some full canvassed suits that have no handwork in them (Canali). All machine work if that gives you an idea.

Thanks for the run down, appreciate it. I love my blue pinstripe Napoli, but I think any narrower in the shoulders and it just wouldn't work out well. I already had to size up to 36W pants for a 40R jacket because the legs are fairly slim. SS makes great suits for the price, but for guys with athletic bodies or bigger thighs, it isn't the best choice unless you take the Napoli and exchange the pants which you can only do on two models I believe. I think my next suit will be Kent Wang's MTM for a little more, full canvased and a little better in terms of fit.

 

Still looking at the outwear though. I really like the navy 'Field Jacket'.

I agree about Suit Supply's pants fitting a bit weird. I have a Jort and Napoli. For the Napoli (supposedly the loosest fit they have), I had to have the jacket taken in slightly, but the pants fit VERY snug. For the Jort, (supposedly slimmer than the Napoli), I had to have the jacket let out, but the fit on the pants was great. It doesn't make any sense to me.

Suitsupply.  That is what I was told when I purchased my last Napoli 6 months ago and what I was again told today by Suitsupply New York.  The Sienna is a full canvas construction suit, according to them, the La Spalla line has more detail and hand work especially in the shoulder and of course has the finer wool.

 

Feel free to call them and double check what they told me.

Thanks for the offer. I suspect that my first SS suit will be a Napoli, but I think that would be a little short for me. Judging by the measurements on the SS website, I would probably need a 40L or 42L (I typically take a 42L in most fits). I'd really want to try it on in person before ordering, though, which is why I may just wait until the Yorkville location opens up.

I was told the complete opposite when I purchased my jort from soho store. Jort only full canvas construction suit otr. You can have full canvas on mtm sienna. I was not interested as then it is in the price of the jort which fits nicely with minimal alterations. If you look at fit info for siena no mention of full canvas construction other than "canvas construction" on the video. Jort /spalla has it written full canvas construction on the fit info.

+1 on this. As far as I know, the Jort is full canvas. Sienna being full canvas is too good to be true, given the price.

Definitely liking a lot of their suits.. will definitely try to check the Suit Supply out in NY sometime this week.

post #1719 of 6206
what are some slimmer cuts? is there something similar to the Washington, but with notched lapels?

also, does anyone know of other suit brands that would fit a tall, very slim figure around the same price point?
post #1720 of 6206
None of the Suitsupply cuts are boxy, but Washington is probably the slimmest based on the feedback in this thread. I own several Lazios, a Havana and a Sienna. Of those Havana is probably the slimmest. I am boderline skinny at 6´0 and 156 Lbs and all three ft med pretty well straight out of the box.

Could you guys please address the rise of the trousers (natural waist or below?) and the button point of the jackets for the suits you bought?  The pics and descriptions on the site don't give an exact description. 

 

I prefer the relationship between button point and top of the waist to be close to this (trouser at natural waist or slightly above and button point at or near same):

 

 

Thanks.

In my opinion, my Napoli pants fit pretty low.

post #1723 of 6206
I have just snapped some pics of the three different models I own. Hopefully this can shed some light on the pants discussion:
None of them are particularly low rise. Havana is a little slimmer than the others.
Sienna


Lazio

Havana

^ Pants look pretty tight.

Does the NY store have a clearance or marked down section in the store, if so then what items do they have there?
