Being near a SuitSupply, I would ask their tailor's opinion as he has had experience reducing the waist of their suits. Additionally, would you mind describing the fabric of the blue Washington for me? I have been considering it for sometime but don't live near a SuitSupply. Would it be able to function as a work suit, or is it too flashy - the fabric in particular, not the cut?

Will the suitsupply tailors work on outlet purchased suits?

Since these things are cursed with working buttonholes, most real tailors will probably charge a lot of money to shorten sleeves...so it might be worth it to let the suitsupply guys handle it since they are used to it and the price is right.

I don't think the prices at SS for alterations are considered cheap. I think somebody in this forum said it's possible to shorten the sleeves up to .75 inch from the wrist. If it's more than .75 inch, then the tailor would need to shorten the sleeves from the shoulder, which is an expensive alteration.

So when you're looking at that $20 or so fee to alter the sleeves, I think it's referring to shortening the sleeves from the wrist and not the shoulders.

In SuitSupply, I get the best fits from the Sienna and the Havana because of this. 

Really? I have very forward shoulders and tried the Sienna, couldn't fit in it, in the shoulders.

Well, it's hardly the only variable :)

biggrin.gif The one that fitted me well was the Washington, but the blue suit. The other Washinton models, I needed the 46.

You're right. I wasn't looking at the jacket prices...it is $19 to shorten the sleeves on a *shirt*.

Jackets are $28 or $75 from the shoulder....

Although some of the alterations look reasonably priced...if the "square back neck" alteration is what I think it is, then $20 seems reasonable and I am pretty sure side seems for $28 or center seam for $16 is a lot less than I would pay elsewhere.

I am 6'1 feet tall and weigh 63kg ( 139 pounds) so i am quite thin. I saw a london-fit the other day i really liked but i am afraid it will be  too big for. Any details on the london or should i just look for a more slim washington model?

A terrible mistake.

Saw some nice stuff, but the functional sleeves are killing me!

How'd your suit turn out?

 

I'm thinking about going MTM. I assume I'll want to go with the "Suit Up" option. I would have to stop in the DC, Soho, or Madison Ave store on my way up to CT for Thanksgiving. Anyone have any feedback which would be best for an MTM fitting? Which has the best selection of RTW in case I can fit into something?

 

Would appreciate it if anyone else has other in-person MTM options I could consider in this price range. I'm skeptical about doing it myself via Kent Wang.

I've been waiting for a pure wool Copenhagen jacket, and this popped up on the Outlet site this morning...

For those who have both a Havana and a Copenhagen jacket in the same size, how do you find the sleeve lengths to be relative to each fit? I have a couple of Havanas and I've been meaning to get the sleeves shortened by 3/8" or so for them to be just right. On the site, the product dimensions show the Copenhagen to have sleeves about 0.9" shorter than the Havana in the 38R size. But when I received the Copenhagen, I found the sleeves much too long. Measuring from the shoulder seam to the end of the cuff, the Copenhagen is a full inch longer than the Havana.

I have another Copenhagen on order so I'm hoping that the blue jacket is some kind of anomaly.
