I also think it will be too large.

 

I am a size 32 for my suits, I bought a size 32 waistcoat and I still have to tighten it over halfway for it to fit properly.

 

I have the same gingham one, this is not in natural lighting, but it's a pretty accurate representation of the colour:

Thanks for the input! Do you know if it's still on the site? The only one I find is the houndstooth in glen plaid. I really like the one you posted haha.

Unfortunately I don't see it on the UK or the US site. Though this one and a different plain navy check one did come back into stock after being sold out before, so there still may be a possibility of a return.

 

Suitsupply has probably noted how great the sales of all their standalone waistcoats were this season, and will most likely release some new ones throughout their Fall/Winter 2015 campaign (which I've heard very little about, actually).

 

So if you're unable to get one this summer, look forward to the possibility of great F/W waistcoats for colder weather layering.

 

If you're really eager to find out whether they plan to stock more (this summer and/or new ones in F/W), you could always email customer support or use the live chat feature, they're usually pretty helpful. Sometimes they may be able to locate stock in stores which is not available online, depending on your country and availability.

Talking of waistcoats,

I've just bought this one and unfortunately don't like the look of it. It's not as blue as the picture suggests. It's a 38R.

Yeah I'm going to chat with them tomorrow. Thanks for your help

Agree . That's why I returned it after ordering it. It looks too dull to me and it is heavier than the gingham waistcoat.
The oter glen plaid one doesn't look good to me either, is made of a pretty "heavy" linen . I have no idea why.

Forgive me if this is an obvious question, but why are SS jackets priced the same as the suits? I feel like just getting the suits would be so much more economical. I tried a neutral linen Havana jacket the other day and was somewhat shocked it was $500 or so - I paid that much for a Havana suit in the spring

Yeah I feel the same way. That's why I've been reluctant to get a few that I really like. If they came with pants I wouldn't have thought twice. I don't like any of the Hudson or soho suits but there are a few jackets I really like.

They aren't always the same price, but the price difference does seem too little between suits and jackets.

 

Buying a suit would be more economical, but you have to consider that all the jackets are designed to be worn separately but not all suits are.

 

Therefore some jackets will have certain fabrics and patterns which would look ridiculous or become impractical as part of a suit.

 

I tend to just go for the suits which are easier to split up, as I am trying to be economical, but it feels like I'm missing out on louder patterns and rougher jacket fabrics.

Yes, that's fair - they're not exactly the same price. But to have so little price difference between jackets of the same fit/configuration and a full suit of the same seems odd.

Does anyone have any experiences with SS's wool pants (separates)? Are they worth the price?

 

I was at the Madison store last week as well.  No one came to help immediately and I was a bit frustrated because I couldn't find my way around.  However, I kind of just roamed around until someone asked me if I needed help and I was pleasantly surprised.  My thoughts can be summarized as follows:

 

1. They aggressively push the slightly-too-tight fit, where you look great when standing motionless, but try and scratch your chinand you will rip through the shoulders.  That said, I appreciate that they want to push people toward what looks good, and get the customers somewhat out of their comfort zone.

 

2.  The sales guy knew the suits and their fits cold.  He eyed me up and gave me a slightly-too-snug fitting sienna.  We talked about what I liked and didn't like about the fit, then came back with a different size in the York that fit perfectly, right off the rack.  When I said I was looking for something with a bit less texture, he came back with the perfect result.  Very impressive.

 

3.  I was short on time so he would not let me just buy the suit even though it was not in dire need of any adjustments (other than pant leg length).  he said I should come back so they could pin me up and get a perfect fit.  I really appreciated that.  I left town earlier than expected sunday so I ended up ordering on the internet and taking to my tailor to get minor adjustments.  but I liked the fact that they really don't just want to sell you a suit--they want to sell you a suit that looks good. 

 

Guy's name was Gallo or something like that.

 

At the end of the day--I wish there was store closer to home.  Really good experience.

It might just be a different selling style. In Holland (where SuSu is from), people generally dislike it when sales people come up to you and bother you. If you want help you go to sales person, and if you don't need help they'll let you browse without being bothered. I quite like that style, instead of being asked whether I need help every minute.

 

It's the same with street vendors or taxi guys or restaurant promoters in many countries. If I want to buy something, need a taxi or want to go to your restaurant I'll let you know, but I won't appreciate you bothering me or pushing your wares on me, and it won't change my mind. Different cultures I guess.

The Suitsupply stores in London are very much like that too in my experience. I walk in, they greet me, then I continue to do whatever I want without being asked if I need help, which I really do prefer as I find it annoying if I need help when I'm clearly just browsing. If I do need help, they'll usually do everything I ask. Even tried ordering a suit from the US stock through a sales associate that I am familiar with but unfortunately it wasn't possible.

Great looking Sienna. What colour is that? Looks like a blue/gray mix on my screen.
