What pleco said is correct. Only La Spall/Jort is fully canvassed. The others are all half canvassed.

I have the Napoli navy plain which is a pretty standard issue navy suit. Does anyone have the Napoli blue plain? It appears to be bluer on their site, but curious if anyone has both IRL and can tell me if it's too blue for an office setting.

How do you do the pinch test for half canvas? The consensus seems to be that this can't be done. It works fine for full canvas though.

Had the same concerns and just received the Napoli blue and think its just fine. The color on the site is a bit exaggerated IMO. Granted, I haven't had a chance to wear it in broad daylight but its more of a dusky blue than bright blue if that makes sense.

I recently purchased Suit Supply Blue Plain Napoli P3458i 

http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-blue-plain-napoli-p3458i/P3458I,en_US,pd.html?start=22&cgid=Suits&prefn1=lineID&prefv1=Purple%20Line%20%24469&prefn2=color&prefv2=Blue

 

Review: 

 

Live in Toronto had to  make my purchase online I was hoping suit will be more darker navy but its almost air force blue. Had to get major alterations since I am 40r had to lengthen arms. Good slim fit. One thing I am not very impressed by is that its very uncomfortable to wear it in summer, I am not sure why.

This is the unstructured jacket I mentioned earlier, size 34. I tried on a 32 which fit absolutely perfectly in the shoulders but there wasn't enough material to let out in the waist (and it really needed it). Tugged on my shirt sleeve too hard but you get the idea. As mentioned, I think this coat is very versatile.

Any chance you guys could snap a cloth pic while outside? No biggie if not, but curious what it looks like in natural light.

Does anyone know how the copenhagen jackets fit? Their Havana 38S fits me great. Should I get a 38R or even a 40R for the copenhagen fit since the copenhagen seems shorter and a lot slimmer at the wait?

i'm kinda pissed at SS right now... they said they received a return on one of my suits but they STILL haven't processed the return (almost approaching 20 days)...

I've never had that kind of problem with them.  I hope you've called to ask what's up?

This looks good, mind posting your height/weight?

That looks very nice atoms. Thanks for sharing and enjoy.

Thanks! You never know how others will view things. As a reminder, the Havana Brown Check pictured is a 34R.

 

I am 5'10", 135-140 pounds. 36" chest, 32" around my natural waist (I wear a size 29 in Levi's), 16" shoulders (which makes it very difficult to get OTR clothes.). I usually wear a 32" in shirt sleeve length. I have a weird body shape because I'm thin (non-muscular, but not without) and carry fat collected at my man-boobs and gut. I'm an older gentlemen as you might tell and am lacking that youthful structure :)

 

As a side note for comparison, the Washington cut fits me TIGHTLY in a size 36R. It's tight everywhere, arms, armpits, shoulders, chest, and waist. However the linen one I bought can be let out almost 1.5" and it's currently at the tailor where we're letting it out at the side seams 1". If that's not enough then we'll let out a bit more on the back seam. I like it specifically because of the tight fit as it'll be the only coat I own like that and it's a nice change from everything else. The tailor wanted me to loosen it in other areas until I explained the look I was after.

 

I hope this is helpful for others.
