No experience with them but the unofficial SF consensus is that Antonio Maurizi (sp?) shoes are overpriced garbage.

I got burgundy SS shoes at their outlet for €59. The shoes are goodyear welted and look pretty nice. Nothing special, but for that kind of money they're the perfect club beaters. If you're looking for something nicer I wouldn't go to SS.

I have the cognac derbies and they're (attractive) rubbish. Leather is pretty thin, soles are nailed on and they haven't withstood time well.

can anyone educate me on their quality? how are the fabrics? also, any info on fit would be great.
Have read everything about them on suitsupply's website so at this point I'm interested in "real life" experience with that suit model.
 
PS: I'm aware of the particular shoulder construction, which is fine by me. 
 
many thanks :)

anyone maybe on the La Spalla question? thank you :)

I don't have much to compare it to in terms of Suit Supply's offerings, but I can tell you what I think of it. For me, it is still quite slim, even if it isn't the slimmest of the bunch. The trousers seemed roomier relative to the waist of the jacket than I was expecting. I like that the buttoning point is low (at least by Suit Supply standards), which I like. I also have a Napoli in the same size (42S), which has a too-high buttoning point and too-slim trousers (drop 7 for some reason).

 

The fabric is nice (Super 150s). The salesperson told me not to wear it too often (once a week max) or risk wearing the fabric out too quickly).

 

Overall, I love the fit and drape of the suit.

thank you msulinski...

 

Would you know how the construction of a La Spalla suit rates vs other fully canvassed suits?

post #2183 of 6668
I'll add another data point to the great sleeve shortening conversation. The jacket i bought in DC this weekend was a (Havana) Long, which is perfect in the body but too long in the sleeves. When dropping it at my tailor today he said, upon examination of the cuff, that 3/4" or at least a "good" 5/8" could be shortened at the cuff before running out of space due to the functional holes.

hope that helps.

59 EUR is a decent price for beats indeed, I agree. I was curious as to the quality of their shoes, for more proper shoes I will (probably) get a pair by Crockett & Jones (EG is a bit pricy). I'll stop by SS to check out their suits, SCs and sizing, not shoes.

Alright, I might get a pair if they're dirt cheap, but otherwise I'll skip it.

There are a ton of other fully-canvassed suits in various price ranges. For the price, OTR, the La Spalla seems pretty good. Most OTR suits at $1000 are not fully canvassed, let alone with hand-attached shoulders. The only other suit that seems like a better deal is the Kent Wang (MTM or OTR). It is fully canvassed with quite a bit more hand work. I don't think MTM even costs any extra. I have one on order that has not come in yet, so I cannot give a first-hand account of the differences.

I bought their standard double monks in brown last summer for my wedding. My pair are holding up fine BUT for $300 I would HIGHLY recommend just spending the extra $60 for a pair of Allen Edmonds. I've noticed my pair of monks from SS crease quite easily

Hi, I'm thinking getting a Copenhagen Jacket. The Havana 38S fits me great. I'm wondering if I should get a 40R? Since the Copenhagen is shorter in length and much slimmer.  Thanks!

Why don't you get a 38R?

I hate to say it but I am pretty much giving up on Suitsupply.  

 

1) order coats and when they arrive, "linen" jacket is linen/polymaide... green copenhagen "linen"

 

 

 

 

2) automated email response to questions notes that I will have a response within 24 hours. I do not hear anything for three days, even after a follow up email, so I have to call and get a direct email to someone to help me.

 

3) finally get a response to question regarding other coat fabrics.  I am told that the cotton/linen green copenhagen is 83% linen and 17% cotton.  When it arrives it is 100% cotton.  I could live with this if the coat fit, but still, come on!!! website says cotton linen, customer service "checks" and says linen cotton AND in reality it is all cotton!!! pathetic! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

4) second copenhagen coat in same size as first (38r) has noticeably different fit... I understand fabric affects this somewhat, but it was bigger in the collar and smaller in the body than the "linen" copenhagen I ordered first.  There is no sizing consistency! Plus, everyone complains about this onthis thread. 

 

linen blend fit:

 

 

cotton fit:

 

 

Despite what it looks like, I wanted this to fit and only after 30 minutes of debating, gave up. If I would have thought about it I would have made sure to take the same photo with both coats.  I look hunched over on the cotton photo, but EVERY position caused the collar to not fit.

 

 

... I already have a blue paris and blue havana 36r on the way.  If one of them works, great, but I am still done with suit supply.  I will wait for yoox and sale section lbms and get the occasional fantastic southwick from epaulet.  

 

I may keep the green linen/polymaide simply because it fits and looks fantastic.  But every time that I put it on, I will be bothered by the synthetic blend.

I am 5'11" with an athletic build176lbs.  havana 38r was too big for me... I have a 36r on the way.  The copenhagen 38r green cotton fit like the havana 38r.  The linenpolymaide green (called the copenhagen green linen) fit me wonderfully.

 

jcrew ludlow (at least in donegal wool) 38r fits me well.  Epaulet southwick 38R fits me great... great.  15.5 neck for shirts and brooksbrothers xslim medium fits me very well. So do epaulet shirts in medium.

 

epaulet southwick weller 38R no alterations (shirt is too big in photo and tie is a tad wide for my taste):

 

 

1000

 

 

cotton 38r copenhagen:

 

 

 

linen/polymaide:

 

 

 

This view hide the fit problem that I complained about in the previous post, but I assure you that it is there.
