Should I wear black AE Park Aves, walnut AE Strands, or brown suede AE Strands with it?

Thanks

i vote for either brown, depending on how they fare next to the brown tie.

Disappointed with Suitsupply London. I don't know if they have a thread on styleforum so I will post this here.

A couple of minor problems with my suit were pointed out during a store visit/measuring session and not fixed prior to delivery.

Finally I have spotted a larger problem with the suit now it has been delivered - a hole about the size of my little finger in the jacket sleeve stitching. Not impressed.

^ Perhaps try speaking with the store reps to find out what they can do about it?

I do (the blue traveler), what do you want to know?

What do you think about the quality of the fabric? - it's priced at a premium to their other wools. Would the jacket work as an odd jacket, given that it's the Havana?

The one just off Jermyn St?? I've been to about 10 SS stores around the world, and no store quite embodies shite service like that London one. Typically aloof middle-England wankers. You work in Suit Supply dude, your shirts are 40 quid, you're not Agnelli.

I'm really pleased with the quality and it definitely feels like great value for money.  The fabric has a dry feel to it and springs back to life from creases etc.  

 

In terms of colour, the photo on the site is pretty much spot on (at least on my macbook) and i'd describe it as a mid-blue with hints of lilac.

 

I'll try and post a picture on my blog next week.

Tobacco linen looks really nice. Seeing it in person how do you think it matches someone with an dark olive complexion?

Wish it was offered as a suit. I'd like the option to wear it as a suit and separates

Are you talking about the tobacco jacket or the navy blue wool one? Cause I have only seen the navy in real life, not the linen one. As for the skin tone, I can't say. If you're talking about the navy blue one, I tend to think (maybe foolishly) that this kind of navy can be pulled off by mostly skin tones!

I will post here with their response.

Wore my Copenhagen linen suit (also, SS linen tie) yesterday...



I'm going to have the sleeves shortened a little bit.

My mistake. I read your post as having bought the tobacco colored sportcoat. Anyone else have this?

Navy does match everyone well but that that gets boring.

Bought a linen Havana suit and was disappointed to find that the trouser lining / half-lining (or whatever it is called when it covers the front of the thigh down to or just above the knee) is polyester. The rest of the insides of the trousers (pockets etc.) feel like they could be cotton or a cotton blend, but the wash tag only says that the lining is 100% polyester.

 

I'll need to ask the tailor how difficult it is to have the lining removed or replaced. A polyester lining seems to defeat the purpose of linen clothing.

That is disappointing. Wouldn't that defeat the purpose of linen trousers?
