post #5176 of 12548

Hmm,

 

I've been researching HK tailors, but can't afford the high end ones...

 

I've looked into Dream Bespoke, Simpson Sin, Baron Lee, Moda and Empire Internaional, which all seem to be around the same price range...5600-7000 HKD for a VBC 110-120 full canvass suit. 

 

Now that I've been doing some more research on SS MTM, which is local here in Chicago, I have been debating which might be better...

 

SS is local so if I have issues, I can go back and get it fixed.  It seems they use VBC and their pricing starts at $699.

 

It's all a gamble to me, being new to the tailored suit scene...so I put it to the forum...

 

Any advice as to which might be a better choice?

 

Thanks,

 

J

clarinetplayer looking dapper as always! Great suit choice. The subtle check is excellent.

Well, here is my getup today. Suitsupply jacket, trousers and square. The shirt is M2M, tie is Drakes and shoes are Meermin.

I went for a blend of fabrics on this with a heavier herringbone jacket and a light 120 wool trouser.

I haven't tried either of those on yet. Are they typically more roomy in the thigh and seat areas?

Perhaps you can let out the seat and waist of the trousers to ease the snugness provided that they have enough material.

Have you tried on the Lazio and La Spalla?

If you're new to the tailored suit scene, the first question to ask yourself might be whether you really need a MTM suit. Off-the-rack is probably a better place to start unless you can't fit into normal sizes.

This was my first SS suit--a Washington. After I purchased it, I had a real case of "buyer's remorse"--thinking that the peaked lapels and the ticket pocket were just "too much". And that it was shorter than any coat I own. After wearing it for the past 4 months, I've come to like it and feel comfortable wearing it. So much so, that I would consider buying another Washington.

 

I emailed suitsupply about this exact suit; they don't stock it online. GRRR!!

There are so many different cuts to OTR suits, you should be able to find one that fits you without too much trouble. This forum is replete with stories of MTM gone wrong. With an OTR suit, you know how it will fit before you buy it, so it is much less risky. I am very slim so Suitsupply fits me well, and I am ignorant enough about suits that I can't imagine a better fit. But if you're knowledgeable and loaded enough to really know what you want and take the risk, go for it.

Does anybody have any experience with the Soho trousers fit? I've tried the porto fit and 30 was too tight in the waist and seat, 32 was too loose.

Anyone know why the Napoli navy is more expensive than the Napoli blue? I realise the navy is from the purple line, but the description says nothing about better quality fabric or construction compared to blue line napolis.
post #5184 of 12548

If I recall correctly, the blue line (the less expensive) is fused in construction as to where the purple line (middle end) is half-canvassed. Correct me if I'm wrong.

Pretty sure I read before that they're all half-canvassed - price reflects the price that SS paid for the fabric (apparently they get a better deal on the fabrics that they offer for $399, maybe because they order more).

I'm sorry, I think you're right. I must've confused them with another brand where the entry level suits are fused and the middle end suits are half-canvassed. Just did a quick research and it appears as you said that the 399$ is directly linked to the fabric used, but still half-canvassed. I read that only the Sevilla cut might be fused.

Not sure where you're getting your info but Suitsupply directly stated they don't have fused jackets in their lineup.
post #5188 of 12548
And the high end (Jort / LSpalla) are full canvassed for $999

Then I guess there is some contradicting info running around on the Internets. Thanks for clarifying this up for me.
