I THINK the Jort is fully canvassed where the Napoli is half, and there is a noticeable upgrade in some of the materials for the Jort. For some reason the Jort doesn't even appear on the website. I'm 6-1 and about 160 and the 38 R fits very well except for as usual too long sleeves. Watch out as they have surgeons' cuffs which will limit how much you can shorten. The trousers fit perfectly - can't remember if they were unfinished or just very long to give you the option of shortening and/or creating turnups.
I also noticed some variance among the fit of some Napoli suit jackets I tried on, which for the budget-minded should be borne in mind in order to assess the additional cost of alterations, especially for those ordering online.
I don't like their website much and they have a much broader selection in the shop. If you see something you like you should jump on it as they get new stock in all the time and don't have sustained 'lines' in terms of materials and colours, they tend to do shorter seasonal runs. Some of the materials I saw there a couple of months ago weren't there last week.
Still, even their cheaper Napoli suit is better made IMO and has a much better variety of colours and materials than say J Crew which are similarly priced or maybe even more expensive at retail. BTW I asked the SA and they don't do sales. They plan to move their old stock to the new store in DC to make room for new stock in NYC.
Hope this was helpful to the prospective SS customer.

Very helpful, thanks. How does the quality compare with a Brooks Brothers 1818?

Sorry for the generalisation, I'm not that familiar with BB suits as rightly or wrongly I tend to see them as often a bit 'safe-business conservative' whereas SS seems to have a lot more flashy materials and colours - nailheads, sharkskins, royal blues, wide chalk stripes ... most of which could be worn for business as long as the dress code isn't too starchy but will set you apart from the more typical navy/charcoal/pinstripes.

I also forgot to mention that the Napoli has a really nice roped shoulder whereas the Jort as pictured above has the shirred shoulder which may be an acquired taste.

p. s. There's another model priced I think between these two (Sienna?) with slanted pockets and a ticket pocket but I didn't try it on so can't comment.

Can you guys tell me more about the "jort" pieces? I've heard they're fully canvassed, so I'm interested. What other details do they have? Shoulder construction? Are they all around $1K?

The Jorts I saw were all $999. Three button rolled down so not a hard three. Centre vent. Horizontal pocket flaps. Shirred shoulders but I don't remember the pleating looking as extreme in real life as they appear in the photo above. Minimal shoulder padding. Bright colourful lining. Pick stitching. Four working sleeve buttons. Nipped waist but not too extreme. Flat front strides, with watch fob pocket, again narrow but not extreme. Some very lightweight fabrics that drape well.

Do they seriously have a line called "jort"? what an awful name.

If they only knew...

Ha I thought that as well so I googled it. Best I could find was a Lower Normandy city in France. Everything else is either people or a collection of awful shorts.

Google Jort Kelder.

Thanks to our resident Dutchman. It's a Dutch company so its probably pronounced 'yort'. Still it doesn't sound so exotic as Sienna or Napoli!

Dutchman with a somewhat questionnable reputation. It's certainly in line with their ad campaigns in that teaming up with him attracts a certain attention.

I've just placed my order for this:

http://www.suitsupply.com/shop/3.C473/Jacket?filter_27=736

Needed something that can be worn casually to the racetrack, family functions, etc, and I feel like the lightweight nature of the cloth will serve well this summer. There haven't been a lot of the Washington model pictured in any of the S/S threads, and the discussion has been pretty limited to "it's slim" so I'll try to get some pictures up when it arrives. I'll also post my impressions about true to size, etc. Very interested to see what arrives at my door.

I tried on a Washington (40r) SC last week and sized up from the Napoli (38r). I also sized up with the Jort (40r).

Pics would be great. I am considering it too.

Anyone here who is tall and thin have experience with their suits?

 

I'm 6'1", 150lbs with a fairly narrow chest. Considering ordering one of their suits online since I don't live near a store. Wondering if it would even be worth it or if their suits would hang off me.

the copenhage is very tight in the waist.

im 5'10.5 / 155lb , and the italia 36r fits perfect in shoulder with maybe just a teeny bit of pinch in the waist
the copenhagen 36r fits well in shoulder but far too nipped in the waist

im extrapolating but it should work well for you. the body and sleeve length on both are a tad longer for their marked size, so that helps too

Interesting...

 

I'm looking at the Napoli suit. I emailed them for specs on them and they recommended a 38L. But your comment makes me wonder if just a 38R would be better.
