Well, they are exactly what you can expect for sub 200 euro shoes. If that's good enough for you go for it. I was not impressed by their quality when I had them in my hands.

What a bullshit, the are made of proper quality. It doesn't mean if you are not convinced about something that it has to be like that. Also depending your review on ''viewing' is just marginal. The are not Crocket & Jones or Aldens, but that's where you pay for.

Ah, I probably dismissed your shoe collection as poor, right? Get your panties untwisted.

I've fitted them, the leather and suede is of reasonable quality but only that, their soles are not very thick, their construction is nothing special. Exactly as you can expect from shoes in that price-range. I don't claim that they are worse compared to similar priced shoes.

I wouldn't buy those shoes as I set the bar for shoes higher than for suits. I'd rather spent some more and buy me higher quality shoes, that's my take on it. IMO Suitsupply shoes cannot pass for higher priced shoes, unlike their suits.

You dont know anything about my collection of shoes. Pull off the diapers pall.

Basing your view on a brand just because of your 'fitting experience' is just a selective opinion which doesn't say anything about the general quality of there shoes. Also as i said before, the shoes are proper. Not excellent but also far from poorly. However (like my self) i do understand that some of us establish a higher standard. Which is good, but dont go personal.

Eh, you're kicking a dead horse here, the actual line of my post was 'they are exactly what you can expect for sub 200 euro shoes.' Unless you call the quality in that price-range the epitome of shoe craftsmanship, what exactly is your problem?

I never got personal before you called my post 'a bullshit'. Why did you edit that later on anyway? If you're trying to debate this so vigorously you perhaps should stop calling my opinion 'marginal' or 'selective' or whatever the f*ck you're trying to say and post some actual experience with those shoes instead.

Newsflash, all opinions are subjective. *shakes head*

Listen pall,

You really dont make any sense aren't you. If you are to quickly stepped on your toes this is not the place to hang out. Your opinion is marginal. It's based on personal 'fitting'experience without a decent global researching. You dont even own, or tested any pair on a long term. This are nothing more then unsubstantiated arguments.

And about the ''bullshit'' part, it might be time to look in a dictionary to find out the definition on it. It's far from personal which can't be said about ''Get your panties untwisted''.

Newsflash, all opinions are subjective. But when the are based on facts and with good arguments, it might be more convincing.

I don't get what you're arguing about?

Neither do I.

I appearantly stepped on his toes by labelling those shoes as not bad but nothing to get all excited about.
It resulted in some vague engrish rant from his side where it seems that he hasn't read anything I did post.

It's hilarious how he calls my opinion bullshit while he's arguing the same point more or less.

Did he mention he works for suitsupply on the weekends?

LOL, I was wondering what the catch would be. Puts things in perspective.

And back to the suits...

I own one SuitSupply suit, a couple of Richard James RTW, BB 1818, MTM from a couple of different tailors and a couple of hand made Italian RTW, slighlty adjusted to me by my tailor (Kiton and Borrelli).
I can honestly say that I enjoy wearing the SS suit as much as all of the others bar the top end Italian, but seeing as their retail is about 10 times the SS retail, I think that's understandable.

As for the rest of my suits, I like them all (I have discarded any of my cheaper, worse fitting models now that I'm upping the quality of my wardrobe) but they all cost more than the SS model, some of them 2 or 3 times as much but I really don't see any difference in quality. I am a pretty standard fit but seeing as SS offer cheap adjustments to their RTW line, nobody should leave their shop with a badly fitting suit.

In the future, when I have £3000+ to spend, I will go to the row, when I have £700+ to spend, I will buy high-end handmade Italian on B&S and when I have less than £700, I will spend £300 at Suit supply and piss the extra £400 up the wall on a big night out.

Have any of the people bashing SS on this thread ever actually owned one of their suits? And if they don't like them, where would they suggest someone goes to get better value for money without spending significantly over $1000?

Of course there are better quality suits available out there,but at SS's price point, there is nothing close to them.

Just got back their NYC store. Staff was very helpful and professional. My personal biggest problem in OTR suits is my sloped more than average shoulders. I usually have to buy very soft shoulder suits. Most of the time I stick with Corneliani Leader, a softer shoulder drop 7. I find most (but not all) Canali and Zegna too stiff in the shoulders for my frame. I usually wear a 40R but went 42R in Suitsupply's Napoli and Roma fit, their two cuts with the softer shoulder.

I ended up buying 2 suits and will likely get many more. Fantastic quality and construction for $470 USD. If I had more $$$$, I stick with the Italian makes, but at around $500 MSRP, nothing can beat a Suit supply suit. Great soft shoulders, quality half canvassed construction, nice detailing on their unlined or half lined jackets. working button holes. Horn buttons, bemberg lining, cloth from vitale barberis canonico. Slim cut trousers to match.

I did find their shoes to be nothing special. For the money, I'd get some AEs or hunt for Ferragamos on sale.

I also don't know how anyone who has tried on one of their suits can trash the quality like some posters here. At the full retail price of $400-$470 USD of most of their models, they can't be beat. I'd love a RLPL, Kiton or Isaia too if I was richer, but I don't regularly have $2500 for a suits, and hunting for the right color and size on Ebay or SF classifieds rarely works out.
