Curiosity question, would you feel better about the price if it was made in Portugal? How about Croatia?



I have actually went to their Soho store and tried various suits. Only Sienna looked good on me, then I priced it and with tax and minor alterations sleeve length, trousers hem it was around 700.
To your second point , 700 dollar suit made in Europe provides decent standard of living for someone in EU and contains lesser profit margin because of obvious factors like pensions, taxes, health insurance etc, 700 dollar suit from China provides super profit for the owner of the company. His Chinese workers are minimum wage slaves with no pension or health insurance. There is no retirement or health care system in China, that is why their labor is cheap. So yes, it would make me feel better paying 700 for suit made in US or EU.

not every EU-country has high working standards, wellfare, healthcare and stuff.
Especially in Italy & Spain working conditions often are really, really bad (like sweatshop-bad). A lot of Africans come over to Italy and Spain and work for incredibly low wages (not much higher than China).
This thread is not the right place to discuss those matters, but you better get your facts straight before writing BS here.

Europe has a certain degree of standards that far surpasses the one of China. This is non negligible. The difference lies in the fact that China has not implemented any type of protective labor legislation whereas Europe has (at least for the most part). The European Treaty clearly states that the EU aims towards harmonising and equalising this specific legislation.

The mere existence of low wages in Europe does not translate to there being a possible means of comparison with China. The instance of africans isn't ideal. I'm assuming you mean those who immigrate illegally? If so, one could say it does support your point but only to the extent that it proves that a black market exists in Europe. But then, their low wages are the correlation of their illegal status, not of Europe itself or of its labor legislation.

The probability of finding a garment produced in Europe with the same working conditions as in China surely exists, but it is certainly very low.

Here is an up close view of this jacket.




If anyone orders this one, please post a similar close but not too close picture. thanks

+1. Just picked up a suit for $470 which, with tax and alterations, ended up being about $525 and a nicer suit than other's I've seen at that price point. It's not exactly fair to be calling these "$700 suits" if you're talking about a $470 suit with $230 of taxes and alterations (which are done in-house).

I am talking about the only suit that I liked and it is Sienna model . It retails before tax or alterations for $639 with alterations 45-55 dollars and NYC tax it comes to around $740. What is unfair about calling this a $700 Chinese suit ?

Fair enough, didn't see you meant Sienna.

Does anyone have this jacket? If so is it really brown because it looks dark grey with brown checks(Pics would be great!)?

It is really brown and the fabric is very nice as well. Unfortunately mine is at the tailor's, so I can't post pics yet. Here's a picture though, albeit not a picture of the whole jacket: 60667196668

thanks....looking forwrad to pics after the tailor. I might be purchasing this next month.

 

 

 

 

How heavy is the jacket? Is it a true heavy jacket or could you see yourself wearing it year round?

Here are some pics of my suit that just came in the mail today. Please let me know what you think about the fit! I would appreciate any and all feedback I'll be taking it to a tailor this weekend but I think it fits decently well overall right out of the box. It is a 38L navy napoli and I am 6'2 165lbs. Sorry for the less than stellar quality

Indentation in sleeveheads - maybe you need to size-down to 36? I would try the smaller size before going to the tailor. Waist and length look good. Nice tie!

Thanks for the feedback! The only problem with sizing down to a 36 is that there is no long size for that. I feel like the difference between a 38L and 36R would be too drastic.

Looks like SS just raised prices on some of their suits. Some colors and patterns in the Napoli at least are now at $489 and $499. censored.gif
