Well I appreciate everyone's opinion, I will be sure to try on both Navy and Charcoal, I just hope I don't walk out with both.  Will take a look at the Napoli again just to see so I can avoid the ticket pocket.

I think both colors are as versatile.. I feel that Navy is more elegant and charcoal gray more subdued in color but equally as appropriate at weddings, a night out or an interview.. you cannot go wrong one with either one as your first suit..

How does Suitsupply compare to J Crew Ludlow in terms of quality? I've tried on Ludlow and I'm not that impressed with the fabric and overall quality. I'm looking for a casual jacket that I can wear with jeans, not at the office. The SS website has a lot of nice looking stuff. So I guess my choices are Ludlow @ $350 + tailoring costs, SS @ $400 + tailoring costs, or bespoke @ $650-700.

I plan on getting the sleeves lengthened. I've also noticed that there may be something wrong with the way the pants fall below the crotch area, not sure if that can be tailored or if any other adjustments are needed.

 

Thanks in advance !! 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm in the same boat as you with a 38R napoli (the suit sleeves are about 0.75 - 1" too short).  

 

I was thinking about lengthening them and placing an extra buttonhole/button for the surgeon's cuffs.  

 

The suit otherwise fits really well.  What do you guys think?  I also have a 38L on the way to check fit, but think it may throw off the chest/torso proportions.

Clipper, I would also consider if getting the sleeves lengthened would make the buttons appear too high.

Nonsense.

I find the natural shoulders very flattering

Well, wear what you like, but if you are going for a conservative interview suit, the Sienna isn't the optimal choice. If someone only owned one suit and it had a ticket pocket, I wouldn't tell that person to go buy a new suit just for that. However, the poster hadn't bought anything yet, so I stand by my suggestion to get something more conservative as a first/second suit.

This really depends on the build of the person wearing the suit.

Search this thread, as there is plenty of analysis of SS vs other brands. There is also an article from a few years ago that started it all that you can google, comparing SS to a bunch of other high end brands. "suit supply armani" should get you to the article.

I think both navy and charcoal can be used equally for interviews and weddings. The ticket pocket is a tricky thing. A good majority might not even notice. Some will see it and think you are well dressed. Others will think it is pretentious. Before everyone jumps to conclusions, I'll add that it really depends on what sort of job you are interviewing for and in what city you live. If you are a business owner who has never had the need for suits, and are trying to make the jump to an NYC hedge fund that covers your industry (or some other example of the same ilk) then the ticket pocket will be fine. If you are a 23yo interviewing at a small CPA firm in a tier 2 city, it may stand out a little. Either way, my money is on this crowd overthinking it and making you question your life a few times over before you make a purchase. biggrin.gif

I just tried on a size 32 Washington fit (Yes, I'm damn slim), and it was a pretty great fit all around, though I'd like a bit more room in the chest, so I'll size up to a 34.

 

The main thing is, on their website, the back length measurement was stated to be 29.1 inches, but when I measured it myself, it was 28.5 inches, so their measurements seem to be slightly off.

 

Also the colour was different from advertised, it ended up being more grey than blue.

This wasn't a massive problem, it looked amazing but I'm really looking for something blue in their Washington fit (Full, not half) this summer.

Interesting solution. Any idea what the tailoring cost generally is to add an extra buttonhole?

Gotcha, make sense. I think I would only have to add about 3/4 inches to the sleeves, so hopefully that would be alright.


I understand this one is a little boxy, but I really am going primarily for an interview suit and thought that most of the other SuitSupply offerings would be a little much.
