Long time no post, guys. I placed an order for my first MTM suit last week- they do have many great options! I chose a Ariston cotton Solaro in navy, will post a detailed review after I received it!

How much was the solaro, if you don't mind me asking?

Anybody ever had the thighs in a pair of SS trousers let out?

Looking at the excess fabric each size I reckon you could get 1.5-2 inches out. 

 

They are okay as-is, but looser would be better.

I didn't notice the messed up vent here:




Yesterday, uncuffed pants and different shirt


I'm 6' 1" and was quite surprised by the pants length. No doubt they need to be taken up. Should I keep the cuff? I quite like how it looks. Again, any and all advice is appreciated.

Please let me know what you think!

Maybe a little nip to the jacket around the waist if you want some more shape. Do you have the pants rolled? They look completely different between the top and bottom pictures.

After losing 13kg if weight and hitting the gym since last August (down to 70kg @ 1,76m), basically everything I own was too big. So today arrived my Napoli in Faux-Uni. The size advisor tool gave me EU 44 but I directly went for EU 46 after looking at the measurement tables.

It's clearly on the tighter side but everyone I've asked said to keep it. Upsizing to 48 would also mean that the shoulders would be wider which I'd like to avoid.
Does anyone know which cut would be basically a wee bit tighter in shoulders and waist so I could upsize to get wider chest and roomier pants without getting baggy shoulders and waist?

All the other cuts have trimmer shoulders by about half an inch. I think for this jacket you could simply let out the sides if you decide to keep it.

pretty good lay out right in the penthouse.. My main purpose was to check out some other fits to see how they fit me. Previously, I tried the Sienna and Washington Half (I posted that in here last year) and I have two Napoli's (blue and gray)..so I wanted to see how the other fits were going to look. They did not have the coppenhagen in the size I felt would fit and neither did they have the havana..so all I tried was the Washington and Lazio..they did not have the soho or madison in my size either.. Now some info for my size.. I am 6"9, 245lbs..broad chest and shoulders and a smaller waist for my size (drop 9)..

Washington: The helpful sales associate really liked the fit on me.. and I was suprised it fit..honestly the armholes were not as high as I had feared..I have a varied amount, type and styles of suits..I have seen some high armholes..( A kiton that I own and a YSL that I own as well).. the armhole was high but not super high. The shoulder line fit nicely and was not overtly padded..and it was cut longer. I tried on a 48L..(sized up)..the tailoring was very soft too kind of mimicking the Italians when it comes to soft tailoring. On the downside the sleeves were seriously wrinkled (which is a common problem for me when it comes to SS)..which means sleeve rotations and the balance was slightly off (which is why you can see the wrinkling by the button hole).. I would have to move the buttons to more line up with the button hole (not a big deal)..also I would have to take in the sides right below the armhole to give a little bit better shape to the jacket..and a little bit in the body as well..overall not bad.. great quality for the price point but the fit was not mind blowing for me..








Lazio: I loved the fit of the Lazio.. it was a brown suit.. not tobacco brown.. but not light brown or taupe.. a good shade of brown..the shoulder line was a little softer and it just draped so much nicer..the buttoning stance was perfect for me..and the fabric was really nice.. very soft as well.. mos def a three season suit..on the downside.. not much for me..the pants were really baggy for me..but understandable being I have skinny ass legs for my size..overall seems to be my favorite cut now..I actually purchased it.. pictures below..







what do you guys think?

I think they both fit you pretty well. Your own eye has already picked up the button crossing on the Washington. Personally, I don't notice arm wrinkling and would have just chalked it up to you having your arm bent. You can be your own worst critic there!

what do you guys think?

They look great! I would totally ignore the wrinkles on the Washington. I think if pitch issues exist then you should find them near the armhole but in this case I can't find anything and I'd attribute the wrinkles to you folding your arms. Both have a slight lapel bow but TBH I'd ignore it coz sizing up may throw every other area off.

yea its what I thought.. the S.A's liked the washington on me better.. but I get a feeling that the Washington is a favorite among the S.A's..there was a very slight gaping at the chest of the lapels..but the fit was the best Ive had of any SS off the rack..so I copped it..the washington would have taken more work..(sleeve rotations, some nip and tucks here and there).. the Lazio was the better fit and choice..

post #5694 of 6742

Thanks for the reply, CousinDonuts! Yes, I rolled them just to see how they'd look with a cleaner leg line. I quite like the cuffed pants look, would it be okay for me to ask the tailor hem the pants with a cuff or should I just go for a regular hem?

 

edit: Like I mentioned in my initial post, I was very surprised by the pants length. I'm 6' 1" and didn't expect there to be some much extra fabric in the pants.

Basically any cut will have tighter shoulders, check the size advisor. My first thought is the Lazio, I wish they had more basics in that style. Maybe in the winter.

Yes, I've received a Lazio in one size bigger today. Needs slight shortening of the sleeves and the pants need to be a wee bit tighter in the waistband but overall fit is better, will bring it to the talor later today. Will exchange the Napoli for another Lazio.
I second the comment about the fabrics though. I've opted for blue birdseye and now trying to make up my mind what other color I want/need, but I'd wish there was an option for the faux-uni or something in a dark blue uni.

I've also bought the dark-blue Soho jacket in wool-linen mix... now where to get my yacht and captain's hat?!

I had to have my Napoli trousers let out in the thighs, tailor reckoned there's about 2-3 cm in total. Mine were so tight the creases disappeared, after letting out they were visible again, but my legs still look like carrots in them. It's a weird fit given how wide it's in the shoulders and chest. It's a suit for those who skip leg day!

Hi guys,

 

Just received my first SS suit - a Sienna in size 40L. I think it looks ok, but there are some things that I would like your comments on.

 

Jacket: The back has a lot of wrinkles. Is this due to the side vents being closed? (I don't want to open them up in case I want to return it.) There are also some diagonal lines around my arm pit that can be seen from the front - what causes this? I'm happy with the sleeves and the shoulders though. I would maybe like to shorten the sleeves just a tad.

 

Pants: They are too tight in the seat and perhaps in the upper thighs? But especially the seat and waist are too tight. Can they be easily let out? Sizing up would make the jacket too large imo. They are also too long obviously but that's easily fixed.

 

Any other comments? Thanks!

 

Pics: (please ignore the crumpled shirt - the trousers were too tight for me to put it in nicely.)

The new Jort collection isn't bad at all. Lots of staple/conservative fabrics.

You're better off returning that one. The trousers are way too tight everywhere, and the back of the jacket looks terrible. Unfortunately, no amount of tailoring is really going to fix that. The Sienna is one if Suitsupply's bigger cuts, so it might not be the right brand for you.
