Suitsupply NYC - Page 33post #482 of 137397/18/12 at 2:09pm
Agreed on too many Washington cuts. Peak lapels and higher waisted pants are too "flashy" for most industries that require a suit or uncomfortable. I'd appreciate more London, Lazio or Napoli fits.
Some pinstripes that are more toned down than their loud stripes would also be appreciated.
I'm not very impressed with this collection so far...

I actually like their current and fall collection a lot. When you consider their demographics and the current styling of suiting especially in Europe, Suitsupply's collection makes a lot a lot sense. I mean they are a European company and if people desire a more subdued suit J.Crew offers slim fitting and more classic designs.
What would be sweet is if they designed a Washington Fit suit sans the peak lapels. True they have other fits which opt for notch lapels however I found those fits to be not as slim fitting for my taste.
post #485 of 137397/18/12 at 5:10pmpost #486 of 137397/18/12 at 7:28pmWhile delving through details, I came across what looks like a recent bullet point on a lot of their suits:
#3 Sous Bras
Thinking someone on styleforum would have explained it, a little googling turned up lots of Bras and some Sous, but no Sous Bras. Expanding the search to all the interwebs found this post from one Martin Stall at The Fedora Lounge ( http://www.thefedoralounge.com/archive/index.php/t-22728.html ):Quote:I'm not sure what the correct term is in English, in Holland we use the french sous-bras (under-arm).
One of the functions, and a very important one, is to prevent the lining of the coat from being affected by the wearer's perspiration. There is no particular excessive wear and tear on that part of the coat, but sweat can be very caustic depending on the person. By putting sous-bras in a coat, they will be the part that gets eaten.
Don't believe me? It's no joke. With some people, sweat can be very very aggressive. I knew a man who cold only wear gold-rimmed spectacles, because that was the only metal that could resist his sweat. All his other specs broke in two over the nose. A very extreme example, but the application to coats is that if one perspires a lot, whether it's because of the climate or because of the physiology of the person, the lining is prone to start deteriorating. Sweat pads (ghastly word, actually, no?) prevent this.
And they are far more easy to replace than an entire lining.
I was familiar with the little pads as described, but had never heard them described as "sous-bras". Learn something new everyday!post #487 of 137397/18/12 at 7:39pmpost #488 of 137397/19/12 at 1:17pmpost #489 of 137397/20/12 at 7:28pmpost #490 of 137397/20/12 at 7:50pmQuote:
Wore the same suit for my wedding-
ran into a problem with their sizing- luckly i ordered the 38 and the 38s just in case. the 38 was WAY too long on me but fit everywhere else and the 38s was a good length but just totally out of wack in the shoulders. ended up taking the 38, having it shortened (and now it looks silly because of the bunched vents) but oh well. live and learn.
wondering if i should try the 36 based on all of this info?post #491 of 137397/20/12 at 7:57pmpost #492 of 137397/21/12 at 9:27amQuote:
I'll volunteer that the peak lapels protruding above your shoulder line is ridiculous for a "real suit". It's probably just your posture, but the fact that you're only leaning slightly and the cut/design still does that strikes me as a warning. On closer inspection of the peak on your other shoulder, which looks to be lying mostly normal, is practically at your shoulder line too.
I suspect a lot of normal activity is going to result in those peaks being way too much on display.

Anybody notice the "size" advice section for some suits (the Washington for example) seems really messed up. Put in my measurements for the Washington and it recommended a '44'. Not a 44R or 44L or 44S just a 44. Unless they have weird sizing for the Washington I think somethings off. Particularly because I have a 37-38 inch chest.
Anybody care to comment?post #495 of 137397/23/12 at 10:47am
