I'm interested in SuitSupply to make my wife a little happier with my life choices. :P

I'm sure you'll be happy with suitsupply, not just your wife. Suitsupply is the one brand with more variety than an entire department store. When I look at the offerings in Nordstrom at $1500 I'm always disappointed compared to what I can get with susu for less than half the price.

Quite like the grey birds eye Lazio.

Agreed, Suitsupply is one of the best brands I've seen for the quality-to-price ratio.

 

I just hope they never stop making double-breasted suits/jackets, every other OTR double-breasted suit I've come across looks pretty dated, or is far too expensive.

The only big problem and the reason why I don't buy from SS currently is the QC. measurements can be +/- 1 inch in either direction. You and I both live in SoCal so we can't physically go to a store and try it first. It's annoying. In the past month, I've sent back four suits because the measurements were off.

That's really not a QC issue unless it's well over an inch...it's spec tolerance. Every maker operates on a tolerance system. I know it sucks, but it's just part of the business and I wouldn't knock SS for it.

But an inch discrepancy is a lot. Some of their shoulder measurements are an inch off. For some makers, that's a difference in two sizes.

 

I do know that makers have spec tolerance, but I would think 0.25 +/- in something like the shoulder would be more acceptable.

 

The biggest problem for me is the back length measurement.

I've been told +-1cm is about the norm. That means there can be a 2cm difference between two jackets...one -1cm and the other +1cm from the standard measurement. You're right, .78" is a big difference in a shoulder measurement, but that's just the way it is.

I'm not saying this to be a pain in the ass....I feel your pain.

What did everyone order today?

 

I'm mulling over the three piece houndstooth havana.  There are several I like.  I may hold off and wait to see what else is released.

I'm holding out for new York and Madisons. I'm hoping for a charcoal York and a non linen Madison in mysize.

Just a heads up, Yorks are few and far between.  I wish they released more of them.  The one you were wearing at the store was quite nice.

Some nice stuff there. Was honestly hoping for a green 3 piece though.

I'm ordering the navy. I prefer more of a shoulder then a soft rolling one. I'm not sold on the Washington on myself.

Two things I noticed just now:

 

1.  The waistcoat pictured with the cashmere Havana is so dope.  Hopefully it is released soon.

 

 

2.  The new model has a totally creepy perv mustache.
