I guess everything is relative. They are probably tighter than on an average sack suit, but I don't find them particularly skinny compared to what I have worn/seen from other rtw brands. Horses for courses I guess.

Here is a shot of my Havana jacket.
What are you guys thinking about it?
Button stance, length, proportion etc?

I think the Havanas are the nicest looking jackets they make but I cannot get past the really high button stance and it's kept me from buying one.

Hi!  I am new to the suit game but I recently picked up the Sienna and took it to my tailor for alterations.  I needed the collar shortened and the sleeves shortened a bit as well as the waist brought in slightly.  With the hand picking done on the back of the coat he said that I couldn't take the waist in.  Has anyone heard of this?  Any thoughts?  

 

Also how do I know how much to shorten the sleeves.  How much shirt do I want to show?  Thank you all for your time!

To me, its either the sleeve pitch is of, or the sleeves are too tight.

I had the waist taken in a little on my Sienna, at the side seams, with no problem. Sounds like your tailor wants to take it in at the center back seam, which is not the best way to do it (not according to me, I'm no tailor -- this is a good read: http://www.styleforum.net/t/273114/altering-a-suit-jacket-waist-suppression/0_100).

I love the double breasted waistcoats!

 

Also, I heard from a pretty reliable source that the NYC store is going to expand, they'll have three stories in the future.

Could you post pics of the hand details you are talking?
Have you dissect a jacket to see inside?

I really really doubt that a jacket at this price point could have hand made details ( and especially that could be hand canvassed!!)

I always tought they were all fused or at best half canvas.

Ps. where these garments are made?

Thanks

They are not fused (except Sevillia), but all half canvased. The Jort is fully canvased.
Suits are made in China, so labor cost isn't a big problem.

Thanks for reply.
China, ok... and considering their very high volumes manufacturing costs are extremely low, but not so low to do handwork at this scale...(even the simple button stitching)
and with which craftsmen?

However I am very curious to see their products in presence, I would order the hopsack havana.
(And doing all the alteration myself , I could also check the construction method and materials used under the skin)

Anyone did this before?

I also do not think there is a lot of handwork on all the models except for the Jort.
Canvasing is made by machine on all models, according to my information.

The typical machine made pickstitching or surgeon cuffs are considered handwork?

I think handwork it's only in the fantasy of their saleperson, not only a single handmade detail but a single handsewn stitch is possible at this price at this volume and in china.
