post #5551 of 7514

Speaking of garment bags, do you store your clothes in them, actually? I'm guessing if the suit gets weekly use, there's not much use for a garment bag except for transport during travel and to the dry cleaner. What about occasion suits (i.e.: tuxedo)? Should I store my SS tuxedo in the provided garment bag to protect it from dust and cat hair/claws?

Yep, that's right. I only use a garment bag when I travel or for a suit (like a tux) that I don't wear often so that dust won't accumulate on it.

I use them to store seasonal stuff.

I keep mine in their bags, but I only wear a suit a few times a month. 

Speaking of the la spalla, what do you think of this fit - I'm aware of the poor quality, but I was in a hurry, and am trying to decide whether to take it to the tailor today, or do a different size.

At first glance it looks a size too large, but it's hard to tell from the picture. I recommend you take a new picture with a buttoned up dress shirt and tie. It's ALOT easier to judge a fit that way. :) Or even better, take it to the tailor anyway and hear what he has to say first. Likely, his advice will be the best.

What size is it? Looks like you might need a long size. So if it's a 40R, go for a 38L. If too long, a tailor can fix the sleeves (although the working button cuffs limit how much) and most of SS jackets are too short in the body anyhow. I wish they had 36L.

Thank you! Shirt is Cipa; have not heard good things about suitsupply shirts after first washing -- but my next shirt for wear with this suit will def be Eidos, to achieve same collar/ look for under 300 bucks

Is the shirt also from Suit Supply? Love the collar!

You comment on the length from a picture that doesnt even show the bottom of the jacket?

I'm a 42R and just over 6', so a long will probably look too long. I have a Washington, San Diego and soho which all fit perfect in a 42R; I've included my san diego for reference.

 

My tailor is limited in her willingness to comment on fit, and her english in general - so that's probably a no go.

 

The shoulders seem just a bit too wide, though the site shows they should be slightly narrower than the other fits, with the chest slightly larger. The shoulders on the san diego are snug.

Man, most of the people on here will bash on the San Diego fit, but I dig those lapels (obviously, not something I'd wear to the office tho!)

Also, would this particular Washington suit be casual and textured enough to pull off as separates if I wanted?

FWIW, I'm also considering grabbing this Havana linen suit based on the pics from another SF poster earlier in this thread.  Would this fabric and pattern work for a separate as well?

http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/havana-light-brown-houndstooth/P3838.html?vpid=P383803

Thanks a bunch for any thoughts!

Can't comment on the Washington, but shopped for summer Havanas in one of their stores last week:

I did not like the light blue linen\silk Havana in person, it looked too much like denim. Both checked silk\linen\cashmere Havanas were very very nice, but I wanted some versatile jackets, so no checks for me this time. I might order the brown checked later.

The white and the white checked Havanas looked good too, if white suits you better than me, but a white jacket would not be my go to jacket for summer either.

What I got was the linen tobacco an the grey wool Havana. They both look excellent, color an texture are beautiful. I would not be afraid of their lighter wool jackets, they are very light. I have an eye on their brown wool Havana too, but they didn't have it in stock.

I think they changed the cut of the Havana slightly, the jackets seem a tad longer, the sleeves a bit shorter. I had to shorten the sleeves a bit in the past, now it's fine. Oh, and their hangers changed too. wink.gif

Hope this helps a little bit.

For the derby yesterday, Havana linen blend w/ a Kent Wang linen blend shirt & high-waisted BBBF pants. I think the high stance of the pants compliments the high buttoning point of the Havana.

Thanks! This is very helpful. Initially, I was leaning towards the tobacco jacket, so I think that I'll give it a try. I may order the Lazio or Havana light brown linen suit as well. I like to hear that they may have shortened the sleeves on the Havana, as I've always had to get the sleeves taken up in that fit.

Do any of their shirts come with collar stays?

post #5565 of 7514

Has anyone seen this suit in person? http://eu.suitsupply.com/en_AU/suits/washington-grey-plain/P3487.html?start=36&cgid=Suits

 

Some of the photos look darker than others, i am hoping its a shade darker than the main photo.
