I'm pretty sure that if I made the leap into MTM or bespoke, all of my suits would be one-button.

Also, until my acquisition of that navy seersucker jacket, I owned zero blue/navy odd jackets. I do find myself thinking about getting one, but mainly to wear with garishly colored odd trousers.

This is very interesting.  Can you say why?

 

Cheers,

I'm only using the one button, so why have the others? Plus, I'm relatively short, and I think the cleanest lines possible should be my target.

Wondering if you Gents could give me advice on the fit of this Suit Supply Suit. It's a Lazio/44. I don't wear suits often and was going to sell it. I bought it for $499 iirc and have a buyer at $300. I'm on the fence about keeping it. I like it, the fabric, parts of the fit (sleeves need some length) but I keep going back and forth on it. Thoughts are appreciated.

I would sell, it does not fit your build well IMO. You need a long, and it makes you look a bit pear shaped...

^ This. Your suit is an example of how SS' notoriously high buttoning can ruin the silhouette. The jacket's waist is nowhere near your natural waist, emphasising your hips. Sell it and find something that fits better.

@jungleroller wrong size, wrong cut.

I'd sell it. This is how a Lazio should look imho. Are you sure yours is a Lazio?

Holy macroni, that fit looks great.

@jungleroller
It doesnt seem like the Lazio line is right for you. Sell that.

Jungle: The lapels look so different on you. Maybe it's because of the camera angle?

 

Noodles: It gets even better, it's a three piece:

Interesting side note: in that picture in my other post you can see I had rounded shoulders, from the way my thumb is pointed inward instead of forward. That was less than half a year ago, so it shows it can be fixed quite easily with a couple of exercises. I have much less back and shoulder pain now, and my posture has improved, making me taller. I'm finally my full 6'2" instead of a hunched over 6'1", so it's been worth it.

Sell it.
post #8309 of 37396
not everyone has the SS build. look at their models, its not a very broad range of body types. meaning, guys who dont look like me.

It's sold. Printing the label right now. baldy[1].gif now to get rid of a few more things...
