My measurements are similar to yours.
The Havana, Lazio, and Jort all work very well for me OTR.
Comparatively the London is much more "relaxed". Droopier arm holes and more accomodating chest and shoulders. Not for my build at all

One of these is specified as 25% polyamide. The other one just says "a small amount of polyester". I would expect "a small amount" to mean quite a bit less than 25%, but who knows? I wish they would just specify percentages for all their fabrics, even those made from all sheep/goat/cameloid/plant-made fibres.

I checked the tags on the inside of most of the poly blend jackets and they were generally 80% wool 20% polyamide. I remember the
Christopher in particular was that blend but
I can't remember if the grey lazio with the red windowcheck was that exactly

Isn't Suitsupply's suit trousers too slim in the thighs and calves?
post #3170 of 6880

I have only tried on the Napoli, Washington and Sienna.. the Washington is the slimmer of the 3.. I had to size up two sizes to get a good fit.. but that size of the Washington that fit me fit pretty good with only one issue really.. the Napoli is the more generous cut of the three in the chest and shoulders.. the Napoli I have has armholes as high as my Zegna Milano's..which is awesome.. but also gives room in the chest and shoulders for me which is the biggest thing..the pants on both the Washington and Napoli are cut pretty slim (the Napoli more than the Washington weird enough)..but I have skinny legs so not much to worry about there..I do like the cut of the Washington the most but between the peak lapels and ticket pockets it can turn out to be too garish for some..my two cents anyways..

I've seen the grey/red check suit at the store, and felt the fabric, and I couldn't have told you there was poly in there. It actually looked very nice, I'm wondering how high the poly count is.

Soho is soft shoulder, London is padded.

 

Here's the rise of the Soho suit's trousers:

Same size in each - 48 EU. Took the waist in on both as well as sleeve/trouser adjustments. Soho I had the seat of the trousers taken in a bit too.

 

Measurements are definitely a little different as is the balance of the cut - London is more relaxed and drapey, but not to the point of being oversized at all.

Being pleased with my light brown linen havana jacket, I've put an order for another one, made of a Wool Cashmere by Ormezzano (It)

Our wool-cashmere blend is one of the best combinations for a suit or jacket.

This is what I got:

 

 

 

Yes, a 50% acetate.

I have the same size in London and Soho as well. Had to take in the jacket of the London, while the Soho required no alterations whatsoever. London is my favorite cut after the Soho, because of the lower buttoning point.

Which of the lines has the most accommodating trousers?

I'm guessing the sienna and london from flicking through the thread.

I'd add Napoli to that list.

I'd have said Napoli too. Certainly roomier than Soho, which is the slimmest trouser leg I can squeeze into (and that, with a bit of hesitancy). My experience with the Napoli trousers are why I'm surprised at this:

Hmm. Might have to just make the trip to the shop, or order & return if needed. There's a Washington I like the look of but the measurements don't really make sense to me and the varying experiences of people is also interesting.

 

Thanks for all the advice/comparisons on its (and the London's) fit.

It is 50% cashmere.
