Looking for Fit Input: Lazio Suit (Jacket)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 

Hi. I just received my first SuitSupply order, a Lazio 38S. The jacket feels great, although the sleeves are a little shorter than I'm used to. Any input welcome, notwithstanding the inferior quality of the pics! Thanks.

Hey @Feelgoodfit, is that your natural posture or are your arms cocked backed?  If natural, the sleeve pitch doesn't look like it's quite right for you.  Any chance you could post better pictures?  Those are really hard to gauge.

Probably my posture. I have a Napoli on the way as well, so will try to take some better pics of them both. Thanks.

So here are more pics (not great but the best I can do) showing the Lazio and the Napoli (both are 38S). I do like the Lazio a little better but the sleeves are shorter. Your input overall would be greatly appreciated!

 

Napoli:

 

Lazio:

The sleeve pitch looks off on the Napoli....the sleeve don't hang cleanly on you.  If it looks like that from the front, it probably is messy in the back as well.  The Lazio looks a bit better overall, but a little on the short side and the lapels look to be bowing a bit (tight chest)...hard to tell.

Thanks. What's your take on the shoulders?

I like the look of the shoulders on the Lazio better.

That was my exact observation as well. Unfortunately the sleeves are significantly shorter on the Lazio and I'm a bit iffy about whether I can get them lengthened enough without throwing off the look of buttons/cuffs. I like the overall length of the short and think the regular will be too long....but no other way to get the proper sleeve length stock. I don't think the Napoli shoulders are THAT bad, but I would hate to compromise a better fit just to get the right sleeve length.......

So I have to decide which suit, if either, to keep. My primary concern is whether lengthening the sleeves up to 3/4 inch (from the cuff) on the Lazio will result in a disproportionate amount of space between the end of the cuff and the last button. Anyone have any comments on this? As well, any other comments on the two suits per pics above?

 

Thanks!

Why would you need to lengthen the sleeves that much.  They look acceptable as is...a lot of guys prefer to show that much cuff.  I would say 1/4-1/2" at most and in that case, you would be fine.

Thanks. Just a little paranoid perhaps re sleeve alterations on functioning buttonholes......and that it can't be returned once it's altered. While not obvious from the pics, Lazio sleeves are almost an inch shorter than Napoli.
