Just a general price increase (happened with some of their suits, too).

Anyone have experience with this jacket?
It reads as light blue but appears more grey in pictures - which is it?
I just had this jacket arrive because I also had to see it in person to judge the color. It is, actually, spot on to the site - it reads as a slate-blue or even just grey in most light from a distance like in the model, although up close you can clearly see lots of light blue and tan specks. It's actually quite beautiful, and I'm really tempted to keep it - but the only problem is I can only see it looking truly great with shirts that have a brown/white or brown/blue/white pattern to them (of which I own many), which I reserve for fall/winter wear with my blue jackets. I'm returning it (sadly) and going to hold out for a F/W Havana that would serve the same purpose.
Brown just seems out of place to me in S/S (not in shoes/belts of course, although I go tan when I can with any given fit), which seems fairly natural - making me perplexed by not only this jacket but in particular the TON of brown sport coats they have on sale for S/S...post #6160 of 127187/19/14 at 5:57ampost #6161 of 127187/19/14 at 6:26ampost #6162 of 127187/19/14 at 6:48ampost #6163 of 127187/19/14 at 8:36am
Just a quick endorsement for the Havana Light Brown linen sport coat.
I'm 6'2" 185. I tried 42L and 42R and the 42R hit it spot on for a casual spring/summer jacket. The color has some depth and interest, and my tailor raved about the fabric and construction. He pulled the sides in a hair too much, but I'm happy with the fit. A couple grainy pics :

A few pages ago I wrote that I purchased a suitsupply suit from the Vigo street store, only to have it arrive in the post with loose buttons, thread hanging from the suit jacket in 2 places, and a finger sized hole in the jacket sleeve. In short - massive disappointment, especially considering during my sizing in-store I pointed out two of the problems and requested that they be rectified before shipping to me.
I of course sent the suit back requesting repairs to be made. I included a note pointing out the more noticeable of the above problems. I can fix thread myself (but hoped they might notice it).
Today I received the suit jacket in the post once again.
Once again the buttons are too loose and once again there were two pieces of thread hanging from the suit. Fortunately the finger sized hole was fixed, but it seems that's all they did.
The final kick in the teeth : DHL helpfully refused to return the suit jacket in the box it was sent to me in, meaning it had to be folded nastily into a tiny little DHL box (which I had to pay for). I phoned the store to express annoyance at it being folded up and asked them to press it before sending it back. I can only assume they pressed it, but I don't know for sure because it was returned to me in the very same box, scrunched up and creased to hell. Fantastic. Why not send it back to me in a proper box, like the first time?
Honestly? I am wishing I had purchased the 'designer' branded suit I was originally looking at. Yes it's fused rather than half canvas, but it looked just as good and the quality of the service I've received from suitsupply is just shockingly awful. I will not be recommending them to anybody. I should probably point out though that the store staff who I spoke to were very polite & helpful, I can't fault them.
I am currently in the market for numerous wedding suits, and will not be going back to suitsupply. This has left a bitter taste in my mouth which I will no doubt be reminded of every time I wear my new suit.
Hopefully your NYC store is better than the Vigo street one, I couldn't find a forum thread for my store.
