Betel, that is the Madison? How does it compare to the sizing of the havana? Any adjustments that had to be made, or are they basically the same just DB instead of SB?

That's a soho. Madison has patch pockets.

As Face of the Monkey says, it's the Soho. In the Soho I use a 44R. Strangely according to the site the Soho and the Havana have the same measurements but in the Havana I have to use 46R. The soho usually needs a nip in the waist but the soho needs a lot more.

I spotted the loose buttons and pieces of thread hanging off and asked them to rectify those. Unfortunately I didn't spot the hole in the jacket sleeve until it arrived in the post.  The button string was unraveling and the buttons themselves were actually 'hanging' down at an angle quite considerably.  The suit is nicer now it has been returned to me and I am working out the DHL-box creases, but I still have some work to do on it myself & will need to take it somewhere to have the buttons tightened up.

Another question regarding the online outlet. I'll be in Holland in September are the items in the online outlet the same as the actual outlet in NL or does the actual outlet have different items?

The items are different. Some are the same, but that aren't many items.

 

I could proxy from the Netherlands!

What's the usual turn-around time for getting a jacket altered? Drove to a four hours to the nearest Suit Supply in a monsoon to buy a suit for an job interview - the rep told me the pants had an 7 inch opening (it was an 8.5 inch which was hard to tell off the rack) which upset me, combined with the fact that they couldn't alter the jacket that day at all (said it would take a few weeks). Is this the norm for SS?

It depends on the store and the volume of alterations they're doing, obviously. My store usually turns alterations around in a few days. "A few weeks" is certainly excessive.

I have an alternationist who runs up to a week turnaround, and a tailor who runs nearly 2 weeks but whom I trust with more sophisticated stuff. In March I swung by the Chicago SS store and their tailors were running 1 day for simple stuff. Spring 2012 in London their board said 4-5 days. So...it depends.

Is this the cotton/linen or wool/linen? I just ordered the wool/linen. Either way, looks great.

Thanks for the replies. Yeah, this was Chicago. I was sorta bent out of shape. The interview was for a clerkship, and I am paying for my graduate school out of pocket while working full-time so I'm doing my best to build up my wardrobe w/ shoes and ties first. I ended up dropping $800 on a suit that I couldn't have altered on the spot, but needed in a pinch...which is sort of why I chose Suit Supply in the first place. Felt sort of silly wearing it in my interview, so I was a little disapointed but I am sure they were busy.

That said, I would shop with them again, just not in a pinch. Barney's had some Isaia suits on sale for a little bit more. I should have ponied up for that in retrospect.

Edit: nevermind, found it.  Size advisor.

 

I really like the Casablanca I see in the outlet.  I guess they don't sell that in the US?  Anyhow, I can't seem to find the measurements anywhere on the Dutch site.  Can someone link me?

Does anyone know if the outlet will open up to the rest of the world anytime soon?
