Nonetheless, I still stand by the fact that if the La Spalla is a perfect fit, I would not advise MTM - what's the point? As Timotune specified, there are loads of great features to the model that outweigh those of a basic MTM.

As for sizing, I'm between a 36 and a 38 and I chose a 38. I didn't alter the jacket at all. The only issue I have is that the collar is too big - but I have a small neck. I could minimise this by having it altered but, oh well. And no Monkeyface, this wouldn't be a reason to go MTM!

No worries, we each have different standards. I'm quite the perfectionist, so any flaw starts bothering me after a while until I simply stop wearing the garment. This annoyance is multiplied by the amount of money I paid for it, i.e. the more more expensive it is the better I want it to fit. That's why I would go for MTM around 500/600GBP. Luckily most suitsupply suits fit me incredibly well, so it has kind of become my go to brand.

I purchased the SS Havana Wool Cashmere  and SS Havana Pima Cotton from the fall/winter collection. Both of these are stunning with great texture that can go well casual or dressed up. The Pima Cotton jacket was surprisingly nice and the online photos do not do it justice. I didn't know a cotton sportcoat could feel so soft and luxurious. I wore the Pima out yesterday before bringing it to the tailor and got lots of compliments from attractive female strangers. :)  

 

I also tried out the SS Havana Moessmer Pure Wool  and the SS Havana Navy Angelico Pure Wool. I felt the material on the Moessmer was too tweedish and old-fashioned whereas the Angelico was too refined for the smart casual style that I normally wear (99% jeans and chinos.)

In the end SS just refunded me for the shirt. I am moving in a week and I will probably just save the money for a winter coat. On another note, thoughts on this bag?

Just curious as it actually looks fairly nice. The bag on the front interesting.

Which of the 3 SS stores in London is the best/has the most stuff?

I'm gonna be in town at the end of this week, and have a limited window so wanted some advice on which one to check out.

Thanks.

Heya,

Received my Soho cotton linen jacket ($150 one) and blue linen shirt in slim fit.

Soho jacket fits great on my build. The fit is much more fitted compared to Mt Havana jacket.

I'm returning the shirt, fit was very average and not slim enough.

Heads up for Australians - SS are now charging in USD, not AUD. 

 

Sneaky buggers! Just tried to put through a $2k order, only to find out.

I wonder if they'll do refunds in USD too, or I can keep the money there as future credit on the account. 

Still better than anything we can get here, but frustrating though!

Is your question whether or not you can have the waist of an unlined jacket taken in? the answer is yes.

So, I was in Baltimore for business over the weekend and stopped by the SS store in DC while there. It was a little messy because they were transitioning into the fall season with their clothing. But my main reason was to stop by to try on some of their lines..it sucked because they had only three lines in my size. The napoli, the havana and the sienna. The napoli I know already fit by was curious about the other two. I tried on the Havana and knew immediately I would have to size up atleast two sizes. Did not come close to fitting around my shoulders or chest and it was just too tight. Again, point of reference, I am 6"8/6"9 250 lbs 20.7 inch shoulders, a 49 inch chest and a 38 inch waist. They found a Washington Half two sizes up that fit me perfectly. This is it right here:

 

Slight pitch issues and sleeve length but otherwise I liked the fit on me a lot.

 

The Sienna I had to size up one. It fit well but I feel it was too short..and I would have to take in the sides and lengthen the sleeves a little:

 

 

Overall I gathered that I would have to size up on everything except the Napoli and the Roma due to my shoulders and chest. I purchased the Washington half and a dress shirt and called it a day. The SA's were helpful and not over bearing at all..plus they had a selection of wool P.S's I was looking at it but did not take pictures of or purchase. However its given me a base for what size to purchase online.

Just ordered these two. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

http://eu.suitsupply.com/suits/suit-navy-stripe-napoli-p2791n/P2791N,en_GB,pd.html

 

Thinking they could replace at least one of my existing suits, possibly two. Will probably try to sell an old Ede bespoke blue-on-navy pinstripe(my very first bespoke suit!) that I hardly wear anymore as it doesn't fit me the way it did originally and now isn't worth putting through the fairly extensive jacket surgery it would need to fit me again.
