Jacket & suit arrived in the post today (bought at SS & let them do the alterations and post the completed items to me):
Obviously, jacket isn't paired with what I'd normally wear with it; I just tried it on over what I was already wearing, to check the alterations were done right and then figured I'd take a snap for this thread.
The suit is also from SS, a Napoli model. The right sleeve isn't that twisted IRL, by the way, (although it does admittedly have a much more minor torque); it's catching slightly on the front of the jacket. I'm also not standing straight-on, so apologies for the distortions that introduces. Nonetheless the snaps should still give you an overall idea of the items, and maybe a more realistic one than the website photos. They're altered to my personal preferences, which is a more traditional/longer cut than other people might want and with sleeves about the same length as my shirt cuff when standing normally, so bear that in mind. Alterations were to slim waist, shorten sleeve length & shorten jacket length (slightly only) in the Havana, and slim waist, slim sleeve taper (but not shorten length) & shorten jacket length in the Napoli.
Size on both is 34 (I'm usually a 36S that still requires some minor alterations in most slim brands, so had to size down for SS). Overall, I'm very happy with these. Obviously, compared to my bespoke, the fit is not as good and the construction is simpler, and even compared to higher-end RTW, the fabrics are not as luxurious. But when you're buying such inexpensive items, you have to be accept compromises, and frankly, I'm very happy indeed with the items and the whole purchase experience. I'll be back for similarly occasional/seasonal pieces in future, I'm sure. Good brand.
At your size and shape, this looks pretty good.
To most of the folks observing this thread:
For every size you go above about a 36, you're basically going to need more and more tailoring to get a fit that is even close to what this gent has pictured here...ESP with a brand like suitsupply. Their brand is deliberately positioned to cater to the uber (did I just write "uber"???!!!!) slim fitted almost built like a child size (not to be insulting)
Suit supply has great cuts but at the end of the day if you''ve got issues on your body that make it tough to fit into RTW clothes, you're going to have a problem with any and every brand you try on no matter what size you are. If you have prominent seat, for instance, you may also have a little bit of anterior pelvic tilt or sway back. If that's the case, an entire slew of adjustments really need to be made to fix your clothes in any RTW state. That's when you make a decision on whether or not to pursue MTM for the money it would cost in alterations for the potentially mediocre result provided. It's not so linear that you can just have stuff let out for prominent seat. All kinds of other issues may develop. If you don't know what's goin on with your body, contact a tailor and you'll soon know....if he's good that is.
This response is 50% self promotion. Shamelessly.
How did I start trolling the suitsupply thread!?!?
