I'm still guessing they will bring it back this fall for a limited time.

Thier outerwear fits a little big in my experience. I am a 36 and a size small was too big.

Napoli, plain grey. Fresh out of the box...



Size advisor suggested a 44R, so that's what I went with. Obviously pants need hemming and I'll get maybe half an inch off the sleeves. Apart from that I'm pretty happy with it.

Looks big overall to me.

^Yes, now I look at the pictures it does look to large. I will return it and try a 42R

JHT652 - agreed, my first thought was to order the next size down to compare. Don't return one until you check both. But I feel you may like the shoulders on the 42 and maybe less alternations.

Regarding the outlet, the Dutch site seemed to still have a bunch of really old stuff, back when SS was a little guido-y in its styling. Plus I saw items that I saw on the outlet last time, like those bright colored Washington SCs. I'd rather they wait another 6 months and include some 2013 stuff.

Here is an unaltered 40R Havana.

Can the jacket from the Havana traveler suit in blue work on its own? It has patch pockets. Trying to decide btw the suit and the Havana blazer in navy. Thanks

Definitely go 42R. If it helps at all for reference, I am 6'2" 185 pounds and athletic, and I wear a 40L in the napoli cut.

I'm 6'1" 185lbs and am happy with a 40R.  I think my arms are average?

Has anyone had experience with their Blue Line or Suit Up Tailoring service?

If I get their OTR suits I would need some additional tailoring done anyways, at which point at only $650 to $750, it may make more sense to get MTM. Any thoughts?

The outcome in his case is quite poor, imho. Suitsupply MTM can do a lot better, really. You might want to search this thread, there have been a few posts on this, also picutres.

Agreed. Seems like he didn't ask them to fix the two basic issues with all SS designs: high button point and gorge creeping to the shoulders.

Yeah, but the overall fit is also disappointing (jacket too tight around the waist, trousers too tight and too long...) and he asked for super-skinny lapels. Unfortunately, they won't let you change the height of the gorge, afaik (one of the reasons I probably wouldn't place an order).
