Got my Napoli yesterday from Holland. Like it very much! 

 

Its my first Suit so - the pockets are "closed" so I need them to open by cutting the threads?

There is a tool specifically for this but you can also just use a pair of scissors, carefully. Also, dont cut open the hip pockets as it can ruin the flow/look of the jacket, and only open the breast pocket if you plan to wear a pocket square.

Anybody know if SuitSupply offers 36S?

post #454 of 7372

Don't worry! ;) I have the tool for this but found it bit curious why the pockets are all closed. So will do this tomorrow ;) Thanks.

 

Edit: Ah, why tomorrow? Because here its nearly 10.30 p.m.

the tool is a seam ripper.

Maybe its just me, but all of these suits seem off somewhat. Maybe its the high button stance or the height of the lapels, or just the cut being a bit weird, but they just don't look quite right to me.

Right on, or hangs over?

 

The sleeve head on the 38 hangs over, but just slightly. As in, when I put my shoulder against a wall, the jacket shoulder touches it just barely before my actual arm does. Whereas on the 36, it's right on.

 

 

 

Thanks for the comments everyone. I'm kind of torn about which one to keep. Also, when I only had the 38 I took it into a tailor (Sid Mashburn in Atlanta) and the guy told me that there was a lot of excess fabric hanging off the back, near the shoulder blades. And he said that to make it fit better they'd need to take the back of the neck in, which he said is a significant process that would cost around $160. That's more than I want to spend on tailoring. Any advice here?

Due to my build, I have to buy a larger size for my chest and then have the jacket taken in at the back seam and then whatever corresponding adjustment my tailor has to do with the collar.  My tailor never indicated it was all that complicated a process and only charges me $100 for this and altering sleeve length.  And she is in no way cheap with pricing, so $150 sounds high.

I think it may have to do with how aggressively shaped the jackets are.  I tried on the Napoli and Sienna and was shocked how slim they were in the waist area.  Also felt that, like some of the pictures above, I was a 5 pound weight gain away from bursting out of the jacket.  Looking at the pictures in this thread, there are pictures of really thin guys that look good in the suits and pictures of others where something seems off.

The point is that when they don't really fit they look weird, they are not magic suits. smile.gif Many buyers are young and not experienced with wearing suits, they look only at a cool fabric design (or at the price tag and the praises of others in blogs and styleforum) and not which of the many Suitsupply cuts is qualified best for their body shape. Then add online shopping without any consulting or fitting in the shop and strange things may happen. smile.gif But the cuts themselves can nevertheless look great on the right wearer.

Ah. I found the napoli pants to be similar to other pants I own in the same size.

They are all aggressively cut at the waist--even their fullest cut, the Napoli. I am skinny and still needed the waist let out.

My tailor (who also makes suits) was otherwise very impressed with the suit jacket (the pants not so much for whatever reason) and wanted to know where I got it, the cost, etc.

I think what my tailor was saying was that it needed to be taken in at the back collar. You can't really tell from the pictures, but on the 38 there is a tiny bit of collar gapping. Could this be what he was talking about?

 

Also, you're right about the lapels. They sit flatter on the 38 and almost start to stick out a little on the 36 if I stand with my back straight.

I've purchased two Washington fits from SS: One from NYC and other yesterday afternoon in Chicago.

 

I'm 6' 0" and 175lbs Athletic however the 38R Washington Cut fits me the best. Here is what they altered:

 

-Extended the sleeves to the max (I have long arms)

-Altered the back collar of the jacket (to avoid dimpling)

-Took in the waist at THREE (3) different seems. This is to avoid having the pant crease extend outwardly and remain down the center of the leg.

-Hemmed the pants (No cuffs)

 

Overall the quality is pretty good. Not as good my various Ermeneglido Zegna suits but good enough for the price.

 

I'll post some pics later tonight.

 

P.S. their customer service and Double Monk shoes are awesome.
