So, I stopped by the store in Chicago..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?

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..

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?!

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 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.

@baton69 I ran into the same problem with SS suits...I had to end up going for the Napoli separate option in-store. You are in a predicament where you need to probably size down in the jacket but size up in the pants. For me I had to take a 42 jacket napoli that normally comes with a 36 waist pant and subbed the pants out for a 40 due to massive squat induced thighs and seat. They were able to take it in enough to not be terrible, but I had to settle on MTM for future suits due to my Drop 9 situation. Try looking at MTM from them because the suits are nice but for this one in question, you MUST return it, there is no saving the back issues with that jacket.

Thanks guys. Took it to my tailor who said the same things basically. He said that the wrinkles in the back could be solved by either sizing up or letting it out a bit, but the shoulders were a problem because they had no padding and didn't follow my shoulders naturally. The pants were a no go. So I'm returning it.

 

I have no store close by (live in Sweden) so MTM unfortunately is not an option for me. Are there any fits you think would work better? I guess a more narrow fit in the jacket but in a larger size could work? Either that or a larger fit overall in the same size. The separates are fine, but I would like to have more options than a charcoal pinstripe... The new Jort looks great, how does that fit?

Looking forward to seeing the result! Hope the suit will come in before summer.
