http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-light-grey-plain-lazio-p3714i/P3714I,en_US,pd.html?start=19&cgid=Pre-Order

seem to be really close in texture to a flannel, but there's no mention of it in the description of the item. Is it just a similar type of weave or do they not think thats relevant information? Or am I just completely wrong? 

I emailed this question about the greay lazio to customer service yesterday. Their response was still bland: "It definitely uses a heavier wool and is more suited for the fall/winter."

I also got the 38R, the 36R feels a lot more fitted but still comfortable.

Looks like shoulders and chest fit fine. Maybe a touch of bowing in the lapels but that could be from holding your arm up. Same trendy short-ness as the other Regular length Havana's.

Something from their Fall lineup is better suited for Fall? Wow, great job customer service. I have called a couple times and have found their reps to be about as knowledgeable as your average Jos A Bank rep.

Might also buy it...
I got it now, talk about quick delivery! I ordered last night around 8 and it showed up at my doorstep at noon today.

The fabric rocks and it´s a perfect autumn suit. It needs to have the legs shortened a bit and the sleeves shortened 1-2 cm and that´s it. I´ll post some pics when it´s back from the tailor.

i actually really like their contemporary lineup... (i have a short torso / long legs), but i wish they had some basic staple suits in the havana fit...

do you think any of the jackets from F/W are suitable for all seasons (minus summer)?

Fit is dependent on your build and the exact models you compare, so I'm not sure you're going to get a clear cut answer to that.

 

Being in the UK, I'm not familiar with Paul Stuart of Samuelsohn's wares, but I would say that the mid-point of fabric quality range of both Polo and Black Label is higher than SS (esp. Polo, which can have some really nice fabrics). SS construction generally seems more straightforward too, although of a perfectly acceptable quality. However, these differences are more than reflected in the price, making SS an excellent value proposition if you're happy enough with its quality (especially true if comparing price to non-sale RL). If you place a particularly high value on higher-end luxury cloths, you may not find enough of what you like in SS. I suggest visiting a SS shop & having a good look round to get  a feel for the range yourself, but that's my vibe.

Not really. On top of assuming they'd make them in heavier fabric weights, a lot of the stuff is earth toned.

Even if they had regular navy stuff I'd expect the fabric weight alone to be too much for spring weather in most locations.

Is it possible to have SS make a vest of the same material, transforming it to a 3 piece? Really looking to get the light grey plain Lazio but I really want this as a 3-piece.

How do in-store alterations hold up in terms of price and quality?

Agreed, I'd really like a basic light grey havana suit.

Any updates on the outlet trip?

i asked about this for another suit and they said they were willing to do that for about 200ish i believe.
post #2727 of 6880
That's very expensive. A vest from a good tailor will cost you pretty much the same.

Just a quick update on what I bought, I will PM everyone who asked for something, if your a size 38 then your in luck! Not so lucky if all you wanted was a navy suit, they weren't discounted at all or were in odd sizes that I couldn't risk buying.

post #2729 of 6880

I did buy other sizes too, but there is roughly 50% of the rack in 38R or 38S.

Looks like a great haul.
