I always have to get my dress shirts taken in through the waist due to my neck, chest, and shoulders needing a much larger size, and my tailor told me it's important to start out with a slim cut shirt otherwise it would never work.

I guess I figured a very slim fitting Washington would need less material removed than a traditional cut that fit my shoulders and chest.

First, I would post this in the tailor's thread where trained people have an eye for this stuff.

Second, while I would advise against massive chopping of any suit, perhaps you might be stuck with this same problem no matter what you wear. if you are that thick across the upper body and thin through the waist and torso, you are going to find suits hard to fit in general. While SS suits have a decent drop, when they say slim they mean cut slim all the way down. Looks like you may need something like a 9" drop, which you aren't going to find anywhere.

So I guess my main, non-professional opinion, is to take it to a tailor and have them pin it and see if you like the result. Good luck!

Has anybody ever tried to order the same suit online in two different sizes, returning them but swapping pants ? 

 

Like ordering a 46 and a 44. Then send back the jacket in 46 with the pants in 44. Keeping the rest.

I haven't tried it, but I doubt that would work.

Alright, I agree with you. The thing is that I ordered the two suits. The jacket in 44 is spot on but pants are tight (the waist can be taken in, but I'm affraid I will have to alter the thighs too).

I'm guessing when they do realize they don't have matching jacket and trouser sizes you'll get to pay for both and get refunded neither. Plus you might actually be flagged on future purchases.

Throw4five, if the sales guy said the Lazio would fit with minimal alterations, I would go back and give it another try. The Washington is very slim in the chest and arms (I can't even get my arms all the way in), so you ended up sizing up. The Lazio in your usual size might work better. The chest and arms are roomier than the Washington. Since you wouldn't be sizing up, the body might already be slimmer than the one-size-larger Washington.

if you want to do it - why not ask them first?

Does anyone have either of these sportcoats? If so may you post detailed pics?

Hey guys so I said that I would post my review of Suitsupply's MTM program when I launched my blog.

 

Here is the link to it.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I checked the measurements on the site ad looks like the sleeves - which is always a problem in other brands, are way short - will fit me nice. 

Qualitywise I think there're great. I think that overall SS get a bit too much bashing here on the forum. La Spalla and Jort models for example are a fantastic value. Come to the shirts I own both from the standard and suitup lines, and though I still like the former the value is significant higher in the latter. I've had three suitup for a couple of years now and they are holding up great - probably more so than my Barbas and Finamores to be honest. Sure, their 'handmade' details have more of an industrial feel to them but I really like the cut and the Thomas Mason fabrics are smooth as butter.

Thanks! I went to see the shirt that I liked but the collar points are way too small for my tastes but there was an olive one that have a nice collar. I might get that one to try their shirts.

Oh yes I should've mentioned that the reason for only getting the suitups is also that I got tired of too much spread. Suitup has a great standard collar with some nice soft roll. My biggest headache is that they are yet to produce a solid light blue. What's up with that I don't understand. But they have nice color options in the other lines.

Has anyone used Suitsupply for made-to-measure? I'm asking specifically about the MTM Purple Line or Suit Up options (i.e., not the lower-end Blue Line made-to-order, which is just mix-and-match sizing on the Napoli cut).

Some questions:
  • What jacket models are they based off of?
  • What's the pricing like?
  • Is the quality better than OTR?
  • Is it still made in China?
  • What's a reasonable amount to spend before you start pricing yourself outside of what would be reasonable to spend on a Suitsupply product?

Am reading this post now. Would still be interested in your comments on some of my questions above. How much did it cost in the end for you? And which fabric/thread count did you choose? Thanks!

 the problem is that I'm dead set on a navy suit and the only "blue pain" Lazio doesn't meet my standards for navy...so at least for now, Lazio is out.

Hey man,

 

The jacket models are really based off your fit. You can choose from a huge list of options (which I break down in part 2 of the review). 

 

This is how the pricing works though. $749 for cotton and linen materials, $899 or $949 for 130 wools (the same ones they use in the Sienna line). I chose a solid blue and my final price after tax was $956. All tailoring after that is included. As far as quality their $649 blue line is similar quality to the $449-599 OTR models. Their $899-949 are like their $649-799 models. Then you get into the 140s-200s which can cost up to $2000+

 

If you can fit their OTR with minimal adjustments then go for it because it will save you money but if you have odd proportions like me (I am short) then go with MTM because if I went with the Sienna + the alternations needed it would be about $875~ so for an additional $75 I would get a MTM and not have to worry about messing up proportions by shortening everything. 

 

Hope this helps.
