I won't lengthen your jacket sleeves, they are just fine. You'r shirt sleeves are a bit to long, I would shorten them a bit.
He's right make sure all your shirts are the perfect length, so that your not altering your jacket so much. Remember there is only 3/4 of an inch to be shorten or lengthen in our sleeves from the wrist.
Plus he's wearing jeans lol, and you can't let out a thigh or knee.. ever. But i do agree the 48 looks best your not a 50 bro.
What about viscose? I've always thought Viscose was more breathable, but not as strong as, polyester.
I think bemberg and viscose are similar fibres (I'm sure somebody else could explain that better), and yeah, I would have expected them to use bemberg if it is known to breath better and presumably feel cooler in the season when linen trousers would normally be used.
According to the inner-pocket tag the lining of the jacket is 77% cotton, 22% modal (another type of cellulose fibre) and 1% polyester. I assume this refers to the non-shiny/non-slippery almost see-through thin fabric which lines the inside of the body of the jacket. The jacket arms, on the other hand, are lined with a shiny fabric that looks and feels identical to the presumed polyester half-lining fabric in the trousers. Or could the percentages on the tag refer to the average fibre content of two different fabrics used in lining the jacket?
As I mentioned above, the trouser pockets are clearly not of the same fabric as the half-lining in the leg (and they feel like either cotton or possibly cotton with some minor synthetic admixture), but the tag in the trouser mentions nothing about this.
There have been other cases discussed in this thread where SuitSupply haven't declared the exact fabric content on the website. In this case, I wonder if even the tags inside the garments tell the whole story.
Thanks, that's good to know. Suitsupply's suits and jackets are affordable and fit me well out of the box (arm length is perfect), so I will probably continue to buy from them and will try to live with any issues I can't do anything about.
For sale: All linen brown/navy PoW Soho suit, in 40R. Less than 9 months old!
It's a slightly heavier linen, so it doesn't wrinkle as much, and you could wear it in spring/fall as well. It's located in NYC for another 3 weeks, so cheap shipping for Americans! PM me for more info/measurements.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
You can easily wear it as an odd jacket as well, or even without a tie, making it extremely versatile.
It's not a brown as the suitsupply website shows:
More like the contrary. Disregard your usual standard size and base your choice on the shoulder width in the measurements section. Because everything else can be tailored to an extent, except for shoulder width.
Best bet is to measure your shoulder width (or have someone do it for you as it's tough to DIY) from shoulder bone point to shoulder bone point, where a good fitting shirt usually connects the sleeve to the yoke/body and choose the size that has this shoulder measurement or just the next size up.
EDIT* and as you mentioned, you can always order two sizes if you're undecided and return the least-fitting one.
