What they call Blue Line Personal Tailoring is in fact a Made-To-Order suit in a given cut and a given size with a chosen fabric (of fairly standard S110's from Vitale Barberis Canonico) where there will be some tailoring in the factory after production (!) based on a few measurements taken from you (fewer than 10, I think) at the time of ordering. It's half-canvassed (as their RTW program), it's cheap but it's in no way a real MTM service. I would not recommend it.
Their Suitsupply Red Line Personal Tailoring is their MTM program, based on a size and a cut that the customer can choose from several available. Many details are changeable (posture (-> shoulder line), sleeve pitch, button stance and many more) as documented changes to the base size. These measured and discussed pattern changes will result in a customized pattern after which the suit is produced. This suit is fully canvassed, has real horn buttons and all the decorations and detailing of the RTW suits and you can choose your fabrics out of the excellent fabric books from Ariston Napoli. I have three suits made like this for me and I'm very pleased with them.
You won't get that for 500$, though, I think it starts at 700$ in the US and if you choose one of the more extreme fabrics (S160 etc.) you can pay more than 1000$. But for a fully canvassed MTM suit with that degree of detailing and a world class fabric from a very fine neapolitan mill I think it's a bargain anyway.

Thanks for the insight. So in other words when you buy a suit from SuitSupply, say this, http://www.suitsupply.com/grey-suit-washington/P2505W,en_US,pd.html?start=3&cgid=Suits  its pretty much like going to Macys and buying a suit off the rack? Except that these suits are easier to tailor? So if I were to buy a Suit, I would still have to get it taiolored to a certain point, is that extra with Suitsupply? Also what is the slimmest fit? I am looking for something more fashion forward.

Any suit that isnt MTM is going to require some sort tailoring for the best fit. I can't vouch for Macy's process since I've never bought a suit there however with Suit Supply you have sales reps and tailors who are trained to work specifically on their own suits. Alterations cost extra and even with the Washington Fit, which is their slimmest fit, I still had to get a few things altered.

 

If you haven't gotten a chance browse back through few pages on this topic and a lot of your questions will be answered.

 

Cheers

The good thing about Suitsupply is that you have measurements on their site...

A size 94 (which is basically a 38L) is :

SIZE 94
SHOULDER 45 cm
CHEST 106 cm
UPPER WAIST 92 cm
SLEEVE 65.5 cm
BACK LENGTH 80 cm
WAIST TROUSER 84 cm
FOOT WIDTH 20.3 cm

In that same order, a 40L would be (size 98) 46, 110, 96, 66.4, 81, 88, 20.8.

The back seem would need to be let out a little I think to relieve the back ripples.

The Sienna is wonderfully made. The soft shoulders are well done. This one needs some more waist suppression I think if I were to keep it.

Let me know what you guys think. Any other potential alterations/are mine able to be done to acheive what I want?

p.s. sorry about he one pic. I'm not sure why it loads sideways

This is obviously too big. When looking at your pictures, it seems as if the jacket's shoulders are falling off your own. Just look at the WAYWRN thread and compare your fit with those of the renown posters and you will realise that your suit is too big. Go a size smaller.

Anybody care to comment?

I think you are similar to me. I'm 5'6, generally fitting a size 36 in shoulder/length but with a 38" chest (which means the suit needs to measure 40"). I work out frequently so I am slim but athletic. 

 

I've come to the conclusion that SS cuts their 'Short' jackets for 'Short and Round' individuals.

 

Therefore, when a 36 is too small and a 38 is too long, they put us in a 44, which is just silly.

 

For me unfortunately it will be a matter of settling on only 1 or 2 cuts - a cut that has shoulder/chest that fits, the shortest cut jackets and hope the sleeve is not too long. LOL.

Whats the opinion on this suit?

http://www.suitsupply.com/blue-checked-suit-washington/P3301,en_US,pd.html?start=41&cgid=Suits&srule=PriceAsc

P3301_3.jpg

I'm trying to imagine where I could wear a blue 3 piece, linen suit with bold windowpane plaid. I know I could pull it off, I'm just not sure when I'd have the opportunity to.

It is uber-aggressive for most circles. Maybe you could wear it to an art gallery opening, in NYC, LA, Amsterdam. paris, etc. Not Des Moines or Waco.

It's too big. The shoulders are off and a Washington cut is supposedly slim then something is off with the sizing.

It's a casual summer suit in an urban context. You don't need an opportunity for it, just wear it after work and at weekends in the city. The problem is that the concept of a casual suit is not widely known anymore outside of SF circles, especially in the US. You should expect to be looked at but then that's the point of wearing a loud windowpane suit in the first place. smile.gif

I'm about to order the Napoli suit in Navy, but I had a question for you guys:

 

I'm 5'6, 37 inch chest and 32 inch waist. Do you think I'd be better served with a 38S or a 36R?

 

Ideally I'd be a 36S but they don't have that size. Maybe I'll pick up both and see. Any suggestions?

I didn't see anyone comment on this and was wondering the same. Has anyone held one of their bags and can testify to the quality or lack of?

I believe this is the bag he was asking about: http://www.suitsupply.com/brown-leather-duffel-bag/BAG12108,en_US,pd.html?start=3&cgid=Bags

Id wear it as a sportcoat, but not a suit, too much going on. Unfortunately I feel that way about a lot of the SS suits, at least the loud ones.

Hey, I came across your post and have had the same problem with the chest. You may have you hips too far forward with respect to your back. This makes your chest hit the jacket too high. Here's a couple exercises to try to open up your hips:
