Honestly, it looks good on you, nothing that shocks me...
post #2192 of 7575
actually, I also find some things pretty bad:
- the sizing is really inconsistent. of course, I can order and send back my suits for free, but that means my money is away for like 14 days & I have to wait for the UPS guy etc.
- the wrong labeling of the fabric is really bad. I never experienced it myself, but I would be not pleased to receive any other fabric than stated on the website.
- quality seems to go down with every new collection. prices are going up on a lot of items, though
- they generally move more and more into "fashun", which I personally dislike.

Still, here in Europe, Suitsupply offers by far the best value for your money. So I will continue buying from them ;-)

So I ordered the Havana for the first time, and I went up one size. Here are the fit pics, what do you guys think?

 

 

 

 

There is a weird line next to one of the shoulders, there is some collar gap, and (not pictured) there is a small lump of fabric below the collar at back.

 

What I think needs to be done: shorten the sleeves, lower the collar, and shorten the collar. Do you think it's worth it, or should I try a smaller size?

Another question: For anyone who has tried both, how does the fit of the London model compare to the fit of the Tuxedo?

Also, I can't remember if I asked this, has anyone had the tailors there remove the belt loops? If so, did they do a good job? I tried a London and liked the fit but not sure I'd trust the in-house tailors to do more than the necessary let-out of the trouser waist/seat (and maybe not even that if others had bad experiences; have heard mixed reviews).

Their tailors can be quite hit or miss. The first time they completely fucked up my suit, but they were extremely apologetic about it and managed to fix it completely for free. If you have a trusted tailer I'd go there instead.

has anyone else that doesn't have immediate access to a brick and mortar store had issues with tailoring? i wanted to get the sides of my jacket taken in a bit, but the pick stitching is everywhere and makes it a little difficult for tailoring...

post #2197 of 7575

does anyone have any experience with this specific color/fabric?

the pictures make it look like it exudes some sort of oily sheen, which is unattractive

^ I have that exact suit. No "oily sheen" issues that I've ever noticed. It's a touch darker than it appears on the website as well.

The jacket you bought has pick stitching on the side seams?

What are your thoughts on the suit? Also, do you have any pictures?

Yes, way back in the thread. It's one of my favorites.

yeah, the jacket has it on almost all its seams. the only exception is probably the shoulder seams.

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?


Could you take some pics of the suit and post it please? I've been looking for a light grey suit but I'm not sure on the color of the Sienna. I like the color on this suit http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-light-grey-plain-lazio-p3516i/P3516I,en_US,pd.html?start=4&cgid=Suits but I much prefer the styling on the Sienna.
