post #4411 of 6278


From yesterday...

The shirt, tie, and pocket square are all from Suitsupply.

This is a regular shirt. I find that a SS "regular" is as trim as a Ledbury "slim fit". A Suitsupply "regular" is fairly trim.

On me, a SS "trim fit" is much too snug. Sadly, not all of their offerings come in both trim fit and regular.

The tie cost $45. Not a bad price.

Thats the outlet for NL, which I think is the only EU outlet. For those in the US past posters have reported using DutchForwarder

Great, I just got it today. The problem was the salesmen in Chicago told me they don't sell (not don't have in stock) a Havana in regular navy. He gave me the woo/cashmere blend and a dark blue one to try on. I was under the impression that the dark blue I tried on was the Navy, and it was too bright for my tastes. I saw the C680 in the catalog and thought, that must be the one I want because it's definitely dark navy. I contacted customer service and they said the C680 was pulled for "quality issues".

TLDR: Got confused with all the blue/navy Havana jackets, salesman confused me even further. C540E is indeed standard issue navy blazer, C680 (rougher texture) is no longer available.

Washington fit, these pictures are straight from the box, pants are too long, obviously. I was wearing shirt all day, disregard any wrinkles. Also pictures are grainy, will adjust settings on camera and retake to get the proper color of the blue suit.

Thanks for any advice I can give to tailor - I am a slim guy and prefer a tighter fitting suit.

Honestly? I wouldn't change much of anything. Any slimmer and I think you'll get too much pulling and the sleeves look surprisingly good to my eye.

+1. That is a great fit. It looks like the lapels might be bowing just a bit and the pants are a little sloppy in the back, but that would be my only critiques. Congrats.

Thanks, pants will be adjusted, they are quite a few inches too long right now. As for the bowing - I don't know if there is much to do to fix that - if I size up the rest of the jacket becomes too large.

I've opened up a SS jacket...you should have over 1/2" to let out in the chest/waist. That should be all you need to get the lapels sittin' pretty.

Here is a closeup of the texture of the suit and a tie, let me know if its a good combo for the Washington: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Also, I just got this Lazio grey herringbone suit. I simply folded up the legs in an attempt to stop the bunching at the back of my pants. I left all of the bastings in the jacket, so the back vents are still closed up. Not sure how I feel about this one, the sleeves are a little short and I just don't know how often I would wear a grey suit anyway:

I bought a Washington 40R but the jacket sleeves are a bit short. If I get a 40L the jacket becomes longer. Thoughts?
post #4423 of 6278

Meekus, which model Washington is that? It appears to have an almost green-blue tint, are the pictures fairly color accurate?

You're not going to get a good answer with that information. We need to see how long the 40R is on you. Maybe the L is what you need and maybe you just need to let the sleeves out. Need pictures...

Meekus, that Washington looks very good on you. I have steered clear of this Cut so far, but might reconsider seeing this. There are at least two offerings for sale right now that are very tempting: the light grey flannel and the navy flannel...
