post #2116 of 5452

I went into the new Atlanta Suit Supply this past weekend, and ended up buying this suit:

http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-grey-plain-sienna-p3486i/P3486I,en_US,pd.html?start=48&cgid=Suits

 

Fits great and needs just a bit of tailoring (being done at SS now) to get it just right. My girlfriend loved it, also, and assured me the minimal textured look of it was great. However, I'm feeling a little nervous that I made a mistake. I know very little about dressing well, and my only other "nice" suit is a navy Ludlow from J. Crew that I really like.

 

I wanted a second lighter colored gray suit, and so I purchased the "plain grey" at SS. When I got home, I saw that they also have this http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-grey-plain-sienna-p3367i/P3367I,en_US,pd.html?start=76&cgid=Suits which they did not have in the store and which both myself and the sales person (who was very helpful and not pushy) overlooked on the website (probably because it's on page 2). I need some reassurance that not going with the more simple, classic gray wasn't a bad move for my second "nice/good" suit. I'll primarily be wearing this to weddings or formal occasions, not for any sort of work (at least for the foreseeable future). My outlook has been this can be more of a fun, jaunty suit to contrast my plain, dark navy. I figure I can go with a lighter, traditional charcoal for my next suit, too. Any thoughts?

London then probably lazio.

London is the only model that has a lower-than-natural stance.

There's nothing wrong with going for a plainer, untextured grey for your second suit and you shouldn't feel bad. It's a great looking suit.

 

here's also nothing wrong with the birdseye pattern in the first suit. I personally prefer grey when it has some texture and life but that's absolutely just personal preference.

 

Both greys are ideal for formal occasions and, if you wish, business or job interviews. Great choices.The Sienna has a nice character to it with the soft shirt-shoulders and ticket pocket.

I am curious about this size discrepancy too.  Did you call them?

I am looking to purchase this shirt from the suitsupply store in NYC when i go there in 2 weeks if available? Is it worth it or i could get better in NYC for that price?

I like the fit of their shirts but I find that the quality is lacking.  All of the buttons end up breaking.

How are the accessories? Specifically the leather bags? It's been asked before a while back, but I don't think I have seen anyone comment on them. Am curious about the leather quality and overall craftsmanship. They have a couple bags that look nice in the pictures.

Although I do not have direct experience with their shirts, I did a bunch of research on this thread and ran across multiple post with disparaging remarks about shirt quality.  It is too bad because I like the dark blue with dots and that bad ass linen shirt on so many of their models that are wearing jackets.

 

 

 

 

Also, unrelated, but does anybody know if they will sell suit jackets as separates if you call the store?  There are tons of cool copenhagen jackets in the suit section that would make great sport coats; and that style fits me incredibly well.I feel like this has been answered before, but I can not remember.

Anyone else getting inconsistent sizing with the same style?

 

I ordered the Havana linen blazer which fit like a glove. 

 

Ordered the Havana suit in same size and it was pulling fairly significantly across chest.

I believe others have mentioned seeing this.

kind of not surprised.  I am a very consistent 38 and everybody on here said that if anything one should size up in a havana.  As such, I purcahsed a 38 and 40.  Both were too big, so that would seem inconsistent with the general consensus on this thread.  It is interesting that you mention linen.  The havana I ordered was linen, while I believe most of the references on this thread were to wool.  I wonder if that is wear the problem is occurring?

What's the verdict on making minor adjustments to sleeve length when you have surgeon cuffs? I tried a 40R Napoli and the sleeves are about 0.75 inches too short. Is this tailorable without messing with the shoulder?

post #2130 of 5452

One of my suit sleeves were lengthened in-store and they added length at the sleeve rather than the shoulder. The result is that now I have too much extra fabric after my buttons stop and it looks a little awkward. Small enough lengthenings will be ok, but for anything that will be noticeable I'd rather it be done from the shoulder.
