I always need to get my SS jacket sleeves shortened. $90 at my tailor to shorten from the shoulders. I know the store does it for cheaper. Worth it, IMHO.

They do have an awful lot of room between the end of the sleeve and the first button - you can shorten the sleeves significantly without needing to do it at the shoulder.

This is off-topic. Is there a thread discussing shoes without socks, like the model pictured in this post about SuitSupply? That habit is disgusting! It looks disgusting and it will make your shoes stink to high heaven (unless, do these guys wear low-top socks?). Put on some socks, my man.

I agree, it looks really bad, but SuitSupply seem to display it mostly on their models for Spring/Summer collections rather than Autumn/Winter.

Does this look awful? I shortened a SS jacket from the cuffs, and I think I did it too much. To short from the shoulders cost around $170 where I live, and I don't even know if the tailor can do that. He said it was a very complicated operation, and it takes time.

IMO, it looks fine as long as you keep at least one or two buttons unbuttoned.

 

To get a greater perspective, you'd need to show us a picture of you wearing it.

 

As for shortening the sleeves from the shoulders, I don't think it'd be worth it unless the SuitSupply suits have a unique feature which caught your attention in the first place.

 

For example; I love the lapels on the Washington/Soho fits and would be willing to do a number of alterations in order for them to fit me, OR go made-to-measure (Which is considerably more pricey).

I had the same thing happen to a jacket I purchased. I'm not alone! redface.gif

However, the tailor shorterned my left sleeve by 2 cm too much I think.

I can probably do that tomorrow. 

 

The jacket has the Washington fit, but the chest pocket (or not very visible) is too small to use with pocket squares. How do you make it look good with a PS?

I thought I was the only one.

 

Would it be a bad idea if keep purchasing SS suits/jackets and shorten them like that? SS is one of few makers I can afford right now.

I would pay the $170 having now experienced this.

Right now I am staring at my right sleeve versus left sleeve. The right sleeve has a 4cm difference.

If you had it done on both sleeves, which I doubt, then it would be fine IMO. But for me it looks off, literally.

edit:
I am very OCD YMMV

Thinking about grabbing one of their quilted vests, but not sure if I should go with blue or brown. What would be more versatily? Keep in mind that I'd be wearing it with v-neck/crew neck sweaters, casual shirts and denim, rather than over suits/jackets.

4cm, or 4mm? Four centimeters is over an inch and a half - that's an enormous difference to have from one sleeve to the other. I would demand my money back if a tailor did that to one of my jackets and couldn't fix it.

If it looks anything like this in person, you'll be fine (Note that he hasn't got any unbuttoned either).

As for pocket squares on Washington fit suits. Look what their models are doing with their pocket squares. I think a TV fold would suit it best on most occasions, but sometimes you may want something a bit different. Here's a few pics for ideas: (Note: the pics are based on wide peak lapels, so they may not be SuitSupply suits)

To me, the top picture seems to be the best fold, but don't be afraid to try new stuff.

i live in the bay area. i know that suit supply is opening a store in early 2014. but so far i haven't bought any items from suit supply yet, or even visited their stores yet. do stores carry more styles than what they provide online?

post #3704 of 7160

It depends on the size of the store. In my experience, I went to the SuitSupply in London Westfield (Pretty small), and it didn't have all the styles & sizes (They had a size 35 Washington fit) which I saw online, though it did stock some items that had either been off the website for a while, or that I've never seen before.

SS in the Bay Area?? NICE
