My Havana grey 3 piece. I'm sorry my photo is not good quality, will get my girlfriend to take a pic for me when I next see her. SuitSupply photo provided too so you know which one it is from the site.

That would be the Copenhagen followed by the Washington, I think.

(not currently available, but it's left before and come back)

I own the second, and I'm pleased in every way. The color is almost identical to the up close image shown of the buttons, rather than the model picture. I was concerned about the color based on the model picture but it ended up being exactly what I wanted, very work/interview appropriate. I thought I saw earlier on this thread that there really isn't much shine on the first plain blue Washington in real life.

If it is the conversation I was involved in, we were talking about the plain navy napoli. I could have missed some other conversation, however.

He was responding to my question.

 

Thanks for the answer btw.

I'm curious how many people here have used SuitSupply's MTM service? I had an appointment last weekend and was able to purchase one of their 'Suit Up'/'Red Line' full-canvas MTM suits in a discontinued navy fabric for $724. To me, that seems like a pretty good deal. Thoughts?

That does seem like a good deal!

I went into a SS store and asked if it was possible to have a MTM where they use the existing Sienna cut, size 24, but I can choose the fabric - and post it to me in Australia. 

 

They wouldn't do it. They insist on fittings, etc. so make sure obviously that getting to your store is easy for you!

I live in Milwaukee and drove down to the Chicago store. It's not incredibly convenient but it's not too bad. The guy who runs their MTM dept told me SuitSupply has rather grand expansion plans, and will be in most of the major US cities within a couple of years. Another figure he quoted was an additional 100 stores globally by the end of the decade.

 

With regards to MTM, he didn't even have me try on any of their named fits OTR. He had special jackets and pants in the back MTM area that seemed to be cut long and full for easier pinning.

So MTM starts at 700+, OTR is 469+ + tailoring, which I assume comes up to 600ish or so. Is there any reason not to get MTM?

As always, your mileage may vary.  Suitsupply fits me great, and all I need to get is the pants hemmed.  $13.50.

They have two levels of MTM, one with a half-canvas suit that's $600 and one with a full-canvas suit that's supposed to start at $900. They had a limited selection of discontinued fabrics (all VBC) that were 'on sale' starting at $725 in the full-canvas suit option. I'm not sure how often or what selection is typically available at that price point. I was fortunate to find a fabric I liked.

Anyone know what models can be used for MTM now? It once was about 3 models and I'm not sure whether they've extended their options... I'd love to get a Jort odd jacket in some flannel.

Last September the NYC store had about 30 fabrics in the lower price, and I'd say 100 or so at the higher price. Don't quote me on this, but I thought they started with the Napoli cut. All the better if that has been expanded.
post #2548 of 6299

When I last asked in Brussels about the MTM they only had Napoli available - if they're bringing in new models to the service then I may well reconsider going through the process. Would love the ability to choose the fabric but don't like the Napoli

Not specific to SS, but my general feeling is that MTM for jackets is rarely worth it, unless you really do have a significantly unusual physique. Otherwise, the incremental improvement from RTW is fairly negligible. Trousers can be a different story (sometimes), but for jackets, I've learnt over time - and many orders - that it's simpler (though not necessarily cheaper!) to either find a RTW brand that fits 90% of the way already (maybe even a bit better with alterations), or go bespoke if those last few percent bother you. YMMV, of course.

Completely agree and would also add something like "or unless you want a fabric or pattern that's really hard to come by without having a one off MTM item made".

I'd never have a MTM navy blazer done, for example, but I would have some really large and extravagant glen plaid or POW pattern done if I had the means and the desire to do it.
