How does the fabric feel? Is it almost black?

I have that York blue suit. The colour is dark navy/blue. In the evening, it can appear as black, but during the day, you can tell it's blue. Fabric is little stiffer than other s110 VBC fabric SS suits that I have, but it does drape well though. If you are looking for tad lighter blue, go with this one:

This fabric is soft and drapes well.

There is a Mercer fit suit in the webshop now:

 

http://eu.suitsupply.com/nl_NL/suits/mercer-bordeaux-streep/P3941.html?vpid=P394124

 

 

It was available earlier today for 299 Euro, but somebody clearly jumped the gun or made a mistake when putting it on the website! The price is now said to be 349 Euro (or 349 GBP in the UK, which is considerably more!) but it is no longer available for purchase.

That link took me to the US store where its available for sale.

 

Not a fan of 3 button suit but pattern wise interesting, could be quite a unique wintery suit.

Trousers look tight..

Has anyone noticed that there are two nearly identical blue Lazio suits in the collection right now ? I wonder if there is any difference....it looks like the same cloth and colour

You can't really tell. They always dress their models in a size too short and too tight. The fit of the Mercer appears to be similar to the Havana.

Color looks a little different on my screen. The asian model is a little blue-er.

The one with the model not wearing a cardigan is for sale in the US and it just arrived at my house. I went home for lunch and took a look. Definitely blue-er than the navy, but not a bright summer blue. I like it.

Is it from me, or the suit is extremely short and tight?

HAVANA REVIEW

 

I ordered a Havana sport coat in the brown plaid. My chest measures 42" and I am 6'2". The 42L (my usual size) was too tight and pulling. Going up to the 44L, the fit was really nice. The measurements on the SS website corresponded exactly to the how I measured the jackets - the 44L chest is 23" across.

 

The cloth is quite nice and I really like the light construction of the Havana. I am pretty traditional when it comes to fit, and I must say the tailoring style here is really sharp, something about the silhouette and lines are just sexy on this jacket. However, the buttoning point is a bit too high...it doesn't completely kill the look and I guess is in fashion for now, but lowering the buttons down to a classic buttoning point would have made the jacket really amazing.

 

The unfortunate DEAL BREAKER making me return the jacket is the FUNCTIONAL SLEEVE BUTTONS. The description of the jacket didn't note this, but now I see that the general description of the Havana cut does. The sleeves were 27.5" and I need 25.5".  Suit Supply offers to take up the sleeves at the shoulder for $75, but (1) I hesitate to perform this type of major surgery for fear something something would not come out quite right, and then I'd have almost $500 into a mangled sport coat and  (2) the horizontal portion of the plaid pattern currently matches on the body and sleeve, I doubt it would after the alteration.

 

I feel like there is a general consensus that functional buttons on RTW jackets is a bad idea....I don't know why SS would insist on having this feature.

 

Service was excellent and returns extremely easy. I was surprised how quick they ship, and will ship from their Netherlands warehouse with 3 day shipping to the US.

 

If I could magically get this jacket with a lowered buttoning point and no functional sleeve buttons, it would definitely be my end-all-be-all favorite sport coat.

Fur future reference: all SS jackets have functional cuffs, I believe their coats have them too

^^^ Should there be a petition or something to get them to stop? I can't read through this entire thread, but is this feature not infuriating to others as well?

post #6780 of 7528

Yeah it's frustrating. I need the sleeve altered on mine due to a dropped shoulder, luckily the difference is small enough that the alteration can be done without the space between the buttons and the cuff being too odd, but it'd be simpler for everyone if the buttons weren't functional. Suppose it's just a prestige thing: i.e. because bespoke clothes have working cuffs, that somehow having working cuffs on a RTW piece is indicative of quality.
