90% wool, 10% cashmere, according to their service.

Shoulders are hard. what exactly is wrong with them?

I just purchased the brown check Lazio at the NYC Madison store. I pick it up tomorrow.

http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/lazio-brown-check/P3657I.html?start=3&cgid=Suits&prefn1=color&prefv1=Brown

It is not nearly as slim as I expected (which is good for me). I did not have to make any adjustments to the jacket other than sleeve length.

They're a bit wider, not as form fitting.

Uhg, The Sienna was the bane of my trip when I went to suitsupply. The sienna had the patterns I wanted in my size but I could not get over the shoulders, far too soft and the shoulder head was weak and floppy.

I mean come on, look at the shoulders on this model: http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/sienna-grey-plain/P3486I.html

did you try sizing down?

its way easier to get the shoulders right first and then have the sides and back let out than it is to do anything in the shoulders.

I didn't try that, the jacket barely buttons closed with a 40 in Sienna. Do you think a Napoli 38 would be able to be taken out more than an inch?

Just ordered a Sienna in store.

 

Went with a 38 (R) but am a bit concerned about whether I should've gone with a 36.

 

The 36 fit my shoulders very well in both Sienna and Napoli. After buttoning, the midsection was just a *tad* tight in both suits, however.

 

The 38 Napoli was too big in shoulders, but the 38 Sienna seemed OK -- not as good of shoulder fit as the 36, but presumably not a deal breaker to my untrained eye.

 

My problem was I couldn't fit into either 36 trousers. At all. I have big hips and thighs. It was so tight that I don't think they could be taken out sufficiently by a tailor.

 

So the suitsupply guy suggested I stick with 38 Sienna since the trousers fit. Even if the shoulders weren't perfect. The midsection will need to be taken in a bit.

 

Just curious: anyone else have trouser fit be the determining factor in choosing a suit size?

 

I'm hoping the 38 was the right choice.

 

P.S.

 

According to the size advisor, http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/sienna-grey-birds-eye/P2444I.html?start=9&cgid=Suits

 

I am,

Height: 72 inches

Chest: 37 inches

Upper waist: 33 inches

Lower waist: 36 inches

 

It recommends my Sienna size as 36.

Debating if I want this as well, it just feels a little too dark for me...

The shoulders on the Sienna are very Italian, but there's nothing inherently wrong with that. I like the 'shirt shoulders'. The model is just wearing an ill fitting suit, and you know that. My Sienna looks very different, and the other pictures on the website look much better as well, you just picked the worst out of the bunch.

Hi Jigg,

Shoulders can be tricky, so it is always recommended to get a jacket that fits you there.  This doesn't mean, however that nothing can be done.  If the shoulders are too wide a skilled tailor can take them in for you, but at a price.  An operation like this costs more than your typical alteration, so be prepared to pay.

You should think about looking at different cuts with Suitsupply and be aware that not every cut will work for you.  For example, my body could never fit comfortably into a Copenhagen cut, so I don't even look at those models.

The important measurements can be found on their size advisor tool, so it's important to measure yourself to make sure the style will work for you.

Could anyone recommend a SS suit that would work in a conservative office, but wouldn't look out of place during a night out either?

I'd go for the Lazio.
