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

 

i've got it. it's a very small fraction darker than what it is in the picture. lighter than a mid grey.

Do you guys think/ is it your experience shoulders settle out after some wear? They have the hallmark shoulder pleats but seem peaked up a bit right now


Seems like you ended up buying this suit, which seems like a good fit on you. Curious to hear how you think it compares to your other suits.

Not sure if pix will show much difference but the feel and look in real life was pretty significant to me. Here's the charcoal suit I replaced -- in pic with tie, had to hold my arms up unnaturally high to get a decent photo. In other pics, you may notice the sleeves are a bit wide on me, bulge at armpits, etc that I couldn't seem to fix -- Spalla seemed great from the start, and only small alteration was at neck. This was a good lesson for me that fit is indeed king, not make / brands

Again not sure if you'll see much diff from my crappy pix of both suits!

Needless to say I'm a bit apprehensive about a massive $7k box sitting at my front door. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Fit & Size
I ordered based on Size Advisor's recommendations (Height: 71 (5'11"); Chest: 39; Upper waist: 33; Lower waist: 33): 
36r Havana P3732 (Light brown plain)
38r Havana P3653 (Brown plain)
38r Washington: P352I (Blue stripe)

34r Sienna P3672I03 (Blue check)
36r Sienna P372I03 (Blue check)

34r La Spalla P3722I02 (Blue plain)
36r La Spalla P3865 (Blue check)
34r Napoli P2525I02 ("Antra plain" dark grey)
36r Napoli P2778I03 (Navy plain)
36r York P3892 (Blue plain)
(BTW, this is the ascending order of the listed chest dimensions by Fit. I.e. 36r chests: Havana 38.6, Wash 40.2, Lazio/Senna/La Spalla 40.6, Napoli 41.1, York 41.5)

Criteria 
My idea of "work" or "semi-formal" suit guided my process of elimination. I ordered:
- Wool only (ex. York is Linen-wool)
- Notch Lapel (ex. Wash is "Wide peak")
- 2 Pieces (ex. Havana P3653 is 3 piece, because, when in Cuba)
- Two-button (ex. La Spalla/Wash are 3-roll-2, I think)
- Flap pockets (Ex. Both Havanas are patch)
- Half or full canvassed (ex. Havanas are "Deconstructed"; others might be too)
- Natural/soft/narrow shoulders (Ex. Wash is "Structured", Napoli/York are "Lightly padded").
- Color: Navy or Charcoal, plain/check/subtle pinstripe (Ex. Havanas are brown. Others will probably turn out to be blue or grey. Never black.)
- Impartial toward ticket pocket

Issues I'm not looking forward to, but with which I may be pleasantly surprised:
- That I'll fit 34r-36r jackets, but my waist may require the 38r suit pants.
- Washington's "longer jacket & sleeve length"
- York's "Slightly lowered button position & hint of classic British tailoring"
- On low end, Napoli's 110 wool
- On high end, $1000 for a single RTW suit from an online retailer (looking at you, La Spalla)
- Slim fit pants that don't taper (Only Havana description states "slight taper"). Non-taper makes for tight-in-the-thigh pants that make the pockets stick out. F all that.
- Double vent (Very popular, but it's an unfortunate trend imho)


Highest Expectation: Keep 2-3 without need for a tailor. But, those of you familiar with Suitsupply's fits probably know better. If this generates any interest I'll do a review either here or on a separate website/blog. Message me any questions. If you don't care, have a nice day.

You are going to have 10 separate boxes on your door step.

You confuse me, and normally I would dismiss it and move on with my day, but I am curious enough to ask...
If you don't like double vents, why order 10 suits with double vents? And what do you do with your coat while riding a horse?

If you don't like a lower button stance or british tailoring, why get the York?

If you only want higher numbered fabrics, why are you knocking the price of those fabrics?

If you need fuller pants, why did you choose a fashion forward brand?

Most of which will need to be returned. When the size advisor recommends an actual jacket measurement that is smaller than your chest, some might see that as a warning sign.
post #5572 of 6981

Yeah that size advisor thingie is all kind of messed up, im 6ft with a 38 inch chest and its telling me to get a 34R.

post #5573 of 6981

Would anyone be interested in buying this Friday challenge winning wool/silk/linen Washington Half jacket in 40R from me? I love the jacket, but sadly it is starting to become a bit too small in the chest. Just a heads up before I put it on ebay.

Thanks for the reply. Do you have any IRL shots?

Looking to purchase a navy suit.

I have a light grey suit in the Lazio cut, which is excellent, however it doesnt look like the Lazio has a navy option?

What are your thoughts on Napoli vs London?

- Impartial toward ticket pocket (Imho, ticket pocket, 3-roll-2, lapel stitching, are all highly dependent on proper fit and nice fabric. Custom 'trad' features for tailor-made jackets. If the suit looks cheap, these will accentuate that look).

From the measurements you provided, I am virtually the exact same size as you, except a half inch taller.

You will need to return all the 34s and 36s which aren't a York or a Napoli (haven't tried the La Spalla though, so that may work, but the 36 Havana definitely won't), because they simply won't fit in the chest and the waist.

I find that the 36R York fits me best, as the shoulders are spot-on, whereas the Napoli, which is practically identical in the chest and waist, is considerably more broad-shouldered, and looked quite boxy, but obviously your results may vary depending on your shoulder-to-shoulder measurement (I don't have particularly muscular shoulders - 17.5"). The 38R Washington fit alright, although ideally it would have to be a tad looser around the waist, while the 38R Havana could have been roomier in the chest (I had a very hard time closing the 36R jacket).

On another note, I wouldn't describe the York as a "British-inspired" suit; the shoulders are only very lightly padded and the button stance is just slightly lower than their other models (I actually think it looks much better). Generally it just doesn't look "structured" enough to look like a suit inspired by British tailoring, and as an Italian I mean this in the best possible way.

Also, the Super 110s worsted on the Napoli is from Vitale Barberis Canonico, so pretty much la crème de la crème. Sure it's not luxurious, but if you wear your suits to work it's actually much more convenient to wear something a bit more resistant than a Super 150s silk-mohair blend, and I can assure you it feels incredibly soft. Just my $0.02.

I own the Navy Napoli and I go back and forth on it. I currently love it, but you will see posts farther back in this thread in which I wish I had gone for the darker, true navy of the London. I think that the lighter navy of the Napoli, verging on blue, has a harder time working with brighter colors, and works best with grey/black/silver ties. That said, I do think it looks great with these more neutral ties. Here are some pics of the navy Napoli:

Napoli Plain Blue (Click to show)

Sienna Plain Blue (Click to show)

York Plain Blue (Click to show)


Comparison pic if someone is wondering about which blue suit to choose. The York (left) is probably a true "navy" blue (almost black), but I find myself preferring the other two. Napoli Plain Blue middle and Sienna Plain Blue right. This was taken with an ipad so the colour isn't entirely accurate, but the pictures on the site are spot on, depending on your monitor. My aim was to illustrate that there's a fairly significant difference between the three blues.


Macgueffen, did you find out which suit you went with? Im a near perfect fit in a Lazio (size 36) and only needed to get the trousers hemmed and tapered. Debating agains the Napoli because I have broader shoulders (for my frame) and my previous navy suit had unsightly shoulder pads. Please let me know!

Thank you for the feedback! I like your suit, I am leaning towards the darker shade of blue as well, the York? Disappointing its sold out in size 36 on the website...cant believe they only have 2 choices of solid navy suits. How do you feel about the shoulders on the Napoli vs the York? (Assuming you have tried on the York).

Thanks for the compliment, Dashaansafin. I have not actually tried the York. The Napoli runs large in the shoulders, check the size advisor. I think the Napoli 34 actually has broader shoulders than the Lazio 36, or nearly so.

Regarding the dearth of navy, Suitsupply is weird like that. They do not even sell a navy blazer, at least not in this season's collection.
