Suitsupply NYC - Page 18

post #256 of 7369

I have an experience that I didn't post previously. I went this past Saturday and tried on the Napoli. The salesperson was very helpful and was able to pick a size for me without asking me. Of course, I'm a bit short and small so the suit didn't fit perfectly. The suit's shoulders were just a centimeter or two off. The salesperson didn't pressure me to buy the suit and told me that nothing in the store probably fit me because I was too small. He was small too, though bigger than me, and sympathized with me by saying he knew how hard it was to find the perfect fit. He even gave me a few tips about where to go and find suits better suited for me. I had a very good experience. Perhaps when I get older (still a teenager), I'll work out my shoulders more to get a centimeter and actually fit the suit.

 

Besides that, the workers there were impeccably dressed.

I went to the store to try on the suits. I tried on the a washington 42S in store and fell in love it was an excellent fit for me, but I wanted gray. So i went home and ordered the gray one. Was super excited that it came in only a few days but then disappointed by the fit, it was totally different from the one i tried in the store. I went back to the store and they said it was a different drop. The one I tried in the store was a drop 7 and the one I received was drop 5. I ended up getting one I tried on in the store. So be-careful with the sizing, I saw sames suits with a drop 4, 5, 6, and 7. I hope they standardize it soon.
I love the suit I bought and the service was amazing. I will definitely be buying again from them, but will be checking the drop first before I buy.

I think SS uses factories in 3 different countries. It's possible that the consistency between them is off.

Good point, your def. right!

According to a rep, all of the "redline" suits are made with full-canvass construction. Can anyone attest to this?

It would make sense.. their blue line is half-canvassed and thus less expensive..so I would not be surprised..

got 2 copenhagen + 1 italia jacket

the italia fit spot on. i like everything about it. had to order -2 size down
the copenhagen were also sized down -2, but they were very tight in the waist. too tight. i imagine if sizing up it'd be a bit better but the proportions wouldnt still be to my taste.

the measurement seems really funky across the model lines. there might be some errors in their measurement ?

overall the cut is about 1" shorter than is traditional

packaged extremely well - shipped individually in large coffin boxes with a nice thick hanger and a coat bag.

returning the copenhagen - thanks for the included prepaid stamp. will buy more in future, but from their B&M mortar store

I agree the packaging was very impressive. There was something weird/off about the fits of their suit. They are not true to size. For example their 36's seem more of a 37 and their 38s are about a 41. Odd stuff, hopefully they can fix it. I wish there was a store to try the suit on besides NYC. That would solve many issues.

Copenhagen was also to tight in the waist for me (tried both 36 and 38, and I am normally between 36 and 38), both were sent back. Pity since I really liked the fit over the shoulders.

Not worth letting them out in the waist?

No. Most of the red-line suit models (and all in their online shop) use the Sienna cut. The higher pricing for the Sienna suits mainly comes from their more expensive fabrics. Here is an old description from their website concerning the Sienna cut:

"The Sienna is our most exclusive model. The hand tailoring and craftsmanship involved in creating the Sienna afford it a level comfort and attention to detail that can only be obtained by the most skilled craftsman. The Sienna has a half canvas front and handmade canvas collar for maximum comfort and fit. Other features include a rounded Italian shoulder, horn buttons, special red lining and front ticket pocket. The Sienna also has several handmade details such as handset soft sleeve, underarm sousbras and handmade buttonholes."

The Jort cut which is not available in their online shop is indeed fully canvassed. But this cut is considerably more expensive than their red-line Sienna suits, €699 in Europe.

Whats the Jort cut like? I do remember seeing them, but never tried on one.
post #268 of 7369
^^ I'm about 85% sure my Sienna is fully canvased.

I went in last week to look at fabrics, and there was a guy working there who will be the manager in the Chicago store that is opening later this summer. He said they will be expanding brick and mortar to all the usual suspects: DC and Chicago initially, then LA, SF, Dallas, Miami, Denver, Atlanta, etc.....You get the picture. Seems like they're really doing well, which is good, because all lameness of their media stuff aside, they make affordable suits for people who previously dressed like absolute shit.

Unfortunately, the length is a little too short for me. I ordered my usual size (40L) but it was about an inch too short. Length BOC was about 31.5". I'm 6'4" so I need at least another 0.75"-1" on the length to make it wearable.


I'm hesitant to just order the next size up because there's no guarantee a 42L would be a full inch longer than the 40L (not to mention it might be too big in the shoulders, chest, etc.), so I would at least want to try it on before ordering another size. I only get up to NY maybe once every couple months or so, but next time I'm there I'll try and swing by their new store.


If this had been long enough I probably would have kept it...it was a nice slim cut and would have needed only minimal tailoring, if any at all. There were some other small details I liked about it too - the functional buttonholes on the sleeves, the wide lapels (about 3.5" - most RTW slim cut jackets in a similar price range have too slim lapels...e.g. Banana Republic), and it came with a nice wooden hanger and a quality garment bag, which is more than I would normally expect for such an inexpensive jacket.


Anyone else try something out at their new store yet?

you are 6'4", that makes you an extra long. does SS stock extra longs.

Well it might have been. I could button the 38 but the arms were a bit to long. The 36 I could not even button and that had the best fit in arms and shoulders.
