+100 I'd love to see this too. Especially more vested suits and basic colour washingtons.post #5328 of 74114/5/14 at 7:54pmQuote:
agreed, a simple charcoal, dark brown or mid grey washington would be great! don't know why they don't have this; they have a grey washington but a touch light for my likes for CBDpost #5329 of 74114/6/14 at 5:34amQuote:Originally Posted by Crat
Slightly off-topic but here's a nice article on lapels (straight vs curved) and lapel gapes. A curve is not necessarily bad (apparently) but a gape is.
My suits kinda drape off my chest rather than my shoulder causing the curve, as can be seen here.
Slightly offtopic, but do you know any other makers that suits you better? I have the same problem with bowing lapels and closed quarters. Hunching my shoulders forward makes it better, but I don't really want to sacrifice good posture to make clothes fit better..post #5330 of 74114/6/14 at 7:24ampost #5331 of 74114/6/14 at 8:32ampost #5332 of 74114/7/14 at 6:05amQuote:Originally Posted by ShawnBC
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)I have received my Suit Supply tuxedo(s) this afternoon (BTW excellent turnaround time, I ordered from Suit Supply on Wednesday April 2nd and received my order this afternoon - Friday April 4th) and would like your input.
Now, keep in mind that I am not your average lean/fit #menswear enthusiast, therefore I am a little harder to fit, be it in office clothing or casual attire. For the record, I'm 6' and currently 245lbs and trying to lose some, with a 47" chest. I lost 23lbs since January 1st and plan on losing 10lbs more until my wedding which is planned on July 12th of this year.
This is my first order with Suit Supply, so I used both their Size Advisor and Measurement page to guide my purchase. I order the tuxedo in 46R and 48R.
This is the 48R:
Obviously, I would need to alter the trouser length, so please excuse the messy trouser cuff/bad drape. Please note that this is the only white shirt I had and not the tuxedo shirt I'll wear for the wedding, I haven't received it yet. Also note that this is the first time I'm wearing a self-tied bow tie (also from Suit Supply) so give me chance to improve!
What I think is good:
- Shoulder width seems fine, there is no (or minimal) shoulder divots, which I usually something I have problems with;
- Sleeve pitch seems adequate from the side;
- No collar/chest gap;
- Quarters are closed enough that it doesn't show some shirt below the button;
- Trousers feel great and sit at the correct height;
- Good range of motion without the feeling of pulling;
- Jacket is long enough (maybe 0,5" short but I can live with it).
What I'm not so sure about or I don't appreciate:
- There is some pulling between the shoulder blades and there's sometimes a crease going over the back of the lapel/collar (which I get with all of my jackets - posture related?);
- Back looks a little bit messy (might be less apparent if the vents were let open?);
- There are some crumpling on the sleeves in the front and upper back;
- Jacket looks boxy (but I think this is inevitable given my proportions);
- Trousers are a little bit tight below the seat which leads to some visual pulling (although I feel great in them);
Given that I should (there's always a possibility I won't, but chances are I will) be 10-15lbs lighter on my wedding day, the 48R should show less pulling in some places, notably under the seat (back thighs) and lower back/love handles region. I might even be able to have a tailor take the waist in a little bit, therefore diminishing the boxy appearance.
As opposed to the 46R:
Although I like the fact that is looks less boxy and the shoulders look great, it is noticeably too snug almost everywhere. I'm going to return this one. Please excuse the OCBD, I didn't think of putting on a proper shirt for the tryout.
Please excuse my ugly mug and let me know what you think.
P.S.: I'm going to post a duplicate of this post in the tailor's thread to receive further comments and critics.
Just glancing, you look a little crammed in the 46. If you plan to lose more weight, perhaps it is better to wait until maybe the first of June? That still gives you time to lose the extra pounds, and also time to run it to a tailor for nips and tucks.post #5333 of 74114/7/14 at 7:00amQuote:
You mean I look really crammed in the 46R. I already returned the 46R and will get the 48R nip/tucked maybe 1 month before my wedding date! Thank you for the feedback!post #5334 of 74114/8/14 at 4:16ampost #5335 of 74114/8/14 at 10:44ampost #5336 of 74114/8/14 at 11:31ampost #5337 of 74114/8/14 at 6:19pm
Ordered first SS suit, blue napoli in a 52r.
Ignored their size advisor which recommended a 48r as measurements seemed stupid. Here are results, I'm happy with the way it looks from the front but are the back ripples a dealbreaker? Obviously pants are unfinished, but they're a bit more tapered than I would normally wear. Apologies for crappy photos, something wrong with phone's camera.post #5338 of 74114/9/14 at 12:31am
Greetings, I've been lurking for a few months as I try to learn about my newly found appreciation for suits. After investing about 100 hours looking at different suits online, I decided to go to the suitsupply store in DC to try on a few different cuts. I've decided to go with the Washington cut and want to order online but I've hit a bit of a speed bump: there are 3 suits on the SS website which are called "Blue Plain Washington". The only difference in the written details (aside from the similarly-structured descriptions) seems to be the origins of the wool used; two are from Vitale Barberis Canonico while the third is from Ormezzano. Same price point, same "purple line".
When I zoom in on the pictures there does seem to be a difference of how the wool looks up close, but I've also read on this very thread that the pictures on the website aren't entirely representative of the actual look. Are these suits identical (save for the different mill)? Or do you guys think they differ from one another? I'm looking for a "staple" navy suit as I begin to build my suit collection; I'm not sure which Blue Plain Washington I should purchase.
Thanks!post #5339 of 74114/9/14 at 2:32am
throw4five; besides the textures and shades of navy being different, yes, they are all the same. there is also the washington half which is only half lined and comes with patch pockets, but they do not apply to any of the above.
i suggest you get the second one. the third suit is only suited for autumn winter. i can't see the first suit because the link doesn't work for me; but the second suit would be a safe bet, it being an all season suit and can be worn for any occasion.post #5340 of 74114/9/14 at 3:39amQuote:Originally Posted by Ergudmun
Posted it a couple of weeks ago on my blog. Thought I'd share it here.
I find the Jort to be a very good fit and very good quality for the pricepoint. It is more expensive than normal SS, but it is worth it if you fit off the rack.
Suitsupply Jort Jacket
Which trousers are these? Are they the Jort trousers too?
Lovely look, btw.
