post #4366 of 7135

both are too short in sleeve and jacket length. try wearing the trousers higher because it looks like it is hanging too low at the crotch.

 

based on how much shirt cuff is showing, i'm inferring you're probably tall? if so i'd get a 36L if applicable.

also, try taking the photos with a normal camera and not via phone camera. we need to see where the buttoning point on the jacket is.

Thanks, sliq.

 

Oops... haha... That's the highest the trousers will go so, as I feared, it was always going to be the deal breaker for the 34.

 

At 1.78m, I wouldn't dare claim to be tall :D It must be my long spindly arms.

 

I'm not hopeful about the 36R as well and SS doesn't carry 36L. But here's the button stance anyway.

Looks like they added more Jackets on the online store. Some jackets seem to be from last F/W because I purchased that same exact Washington Plain last Winter.Sizes are also limited.

34R
I'm a 36 in other labels but this 34 fits nicely in the shoulders.

But are the sleeves too short to fix?

 

Hi khim

Could you plz measure the length of the sleeve?

I am also considering between 34 and 36 size 

post #4371 of 7135

Khim, if you really love the suit then i would go with the 36R.... but if i were in your shoes, i would try another cut... too many things in the napoli cut working against you. 1. short length of the coat, 2. horizontal lines on the seat of the trousers, 3. the upper back looks a bit tight (can be cured by letting it out)

    billabong,
  • i took the measurements and they tallied with the SS specs: 60cm for 34R and 61 for 36R.

sliq,

I don't love it. ah yes, the perfectionist in all of us. but I like it and your advice as well.

So I'll bring the 36 to the tailor for the final verdict.

 

Agree that the back length is a little short but I could live with it.

Well, at least the 36 trousers fit comfortably with no sign of those lines.

It looks really well-made and the material doesn't feel too warm even in tropical Singapore.

 

Meanwhile, sales are springing up around town. Perhaps it's time to test out a little of those skills/tips I picked up here. I really ought to visit a real SS store should I go on holidays next time.

I am looking to buy a grey suit, Washington fit, not for business use, but unsure if this fabric is very versatile as it isn't the "grey" I am used to seeing on a suit:

This picture is the one throwing a flag, I cant tell what color it actually is, is it dark, or is it light?

It is sort of not "grey" in a traditional way.  They call that pattern birdseye or sometimes nailhead.  Alternating white and charcoal.  The different shades of the colors and the subtleties of the patterns change the overall hue from a distance.  I was in one of the stores recently and they had at least three different versions of the fabric.  I really like these patterns.  They are pretty sharp.

Unfortunately they are sold out of my size right now, but a quick google search on birdseye did come up with some good results.

A lot of people would recommend to get a navy suit as your first one for biz professional, but darker grey (like a charcoal) is probably fine too.  If you really wanted grey for the suit, the Napoli grey faux-uni looks fine and the Napoli grey plain would probably be alright too although it's a little lighter.  I would avoid the Napoli Antra pinstripe; you usually don't want pinstripes for your first suit (or second - although, those pinstripes don't stand out that much). Avoid the Washington cut in your first link for now - peak lapels are less business professional/conservative and people might think they're "showy."

 

For the blazer, if you're just getting one, I might look for something a little plainer than the one you linked.  I think the jacket you linked is rad, but the texture looks winter-ish and the color seems a little lighter than you might want if you're only getting one (might just be the weave/texture of the wool that makes the color look like that).  In general, navy or darker grey (but not black) with simpler textures is what you think of when you want stuff to wear in a professional environment, and a simple navy jacket or suit will be really versatile when you're building full outfits and wearing in different seasons.

 

Regarding the picture, I just meant that after you order and receive a suit, there are threads on style forum where you can post pictures wearing the suit and knowledgeable members of the forum can critique how it fits you.

Thanks a million. I ordered the faux grey in 38S and if that fits, my goal will be to find a really nice navy jacket or suit. If it doesn't fit however then I might have to go M2M. I don't see much that I like for 36s besides the the $1000 La Spalla's which might be a tad bit too much.

Today, when I arrived home, a familiar looking package was waiting at the back door.




A week ago, when I visited the SS store in Chicago, I tried on the La Spalla and loved it. But did not pull the trigger until Friday, when I called the store from home in Michigan to inquire if it was still available. I was surprised that it was delivered so quickly. Here it is, out-of-the-box, wrinkles and all, before going to the tailor:








The wool fabric is as soft as butter. "Molto" light.

When I ordered the suit, I asked the sales rep, who assisted me when I visited the store, to pick out a tie and a PS to go with the suit. He did not fail:



The tie has a chocolate brown background. To get a nice wool tie like this for only $45 is a value.

Now, off to the tailor. This is a 40S. There is some excess fabric in the back that needs attention.

There is plenty of material in the trouser for a cuff. Yes? Or, no? Thoughts are welcome.

Looks like you have caught the suitsupply bug CP. Suit looks great. Is there a noticeable difference qualitywise you compare the La Spalla to the other models ? The price is almost double...
post #4380 of 7135

Hello, I'm going to buy my first suit(s) for the business, because I have to wear now and then more formal clothes. But I'm unsure about the right color. Grey and Blue are fine, but when it comes to texture, how dark etc. I don't really have a clue. My hair is really dark and my skin is pretty pale, so I think a big contrast would fit good(dark grey, navy blue). Is it right or should I go for less contrast(medium grey e.g.)?

 

I have around 300-400 Euro(I'm not from the US) for spending on the suit. I'm happy that I already own some basics like shirts, a few ties and other things. Has anyone tried the Blue Line Personal Tailoring yet? Is it good or should I go for a ready to wear suit and let the in store tailor do some changes if neccessary? Suit Up Tailoring is too expensive for me at the moment. Does someone exactly know what you can change when you are trying Blue Line Tailoring? I'd like to have peak lapels for example. But that's not essential for the first suit, it should just fit good and have a nice quality. But if it's possible, I'd prefer peak lapels over notch lapels.

 

Some suits I liked while browsing on the website:
