    Their size 40 fits me pretty good in the shoulders, so I got the same size, only as a "long"
    40L in the SOHO, 40L in the Havana (still a bit tight), 38R in the Lazio, 38R in the Sienna
    this was the one I only tried on, but disliked the color. This is my blue one, with altered sleeves & pants: [​IMG] [​IMG] It is a bit on the long side, but I rather wear it a bit too long than too short.
    I did not have this altered this way, just tried it on and folded the sleeves back. I always shorten from the shoulder, my tailor here in Vienna does it for free :slayer:

    It looks like the inside of the jacket is hanging limp. Is there an inner button on which to secure the inside flap?

    It is the one you've posted, and the buttons are different for some reason. I don't have pictures of myself in the jacket in daylight, but I can grab some detail shots for you if you'd like. What details are you looking for?

    I don't know if the sleeves were altered, although I like to have the correct measurement of the end of the sleeve to the first button.

    That one looks very nice. I think that in a DB I would get a long jacket too, I think it will favour my shape, I'm 185. I think I should try the 44L, it has 18.9" from shoulder to shoulder, 0.1" shouldn't be a problem.

    Liked this one a lot:

    I took a couple of photos of the buttons for you. Keep in mind these photos are with a slightly diffused light.

    Would you be able to sell it to someone else in Mexico if the suit doesn't fit you? If so, I'd give it a try, the Soho is a very nice suit!

    I think not... at least not to recover the price I paid. Around here brand suits are expensive. Plus well I didn't know, when I bought mine, of a lot of options of where to buy and what to loof for in a suit. I just sold a Z Zegna to a friend, I paid for it $1,250 usd. I sold it to him at $150 usd.

    Great, many thanks!

    I was interested to see how subtle is the two tone blue, I have some set of metal buttons that I want to swap on it.

    I'm so curios to see the fit of the Havana on me, I will order it, thanks for your pics.

    That's too bad. Have you tried calling/emailing SS for exact measurements?

    No, haven't considered that, I thought the ones posted in the site were accurate, but certainly I will write them. Thanks for that!

    Yeah, the measurements are generally correct, but sometimes the way the picture shows it's measured is not how it's actually measured.

    And what is listed may not always be what shows up. My 2 suits are the same cut and size from the same season, and one I had to tailor the body the other I didn't. go figure. BUT, shoulders, length, sleeves, chest were all the same.

    This photo SS just posted on Tumblr is freaking killing me. You make a midnight blue shawl-lapel tuxedo now? Really? That's funny because the 2 stores I called said they hadn't had it for ages.

    Oh well, it's probably too blue anyway. That's how I'll rationalize it.

    Hey guys, I'm looking to purchase some Napoli suits but, even after searching the forums for advice, I'm very confused about what size I should get. Here are my measurements:

    Height: 6'2"
    Chest: 40"
    Shoulders accross: 20.8"
    Upper waist: 35"
    Lower waist: 36"

    As you can see, I'm slim, tall and broad shouldered.

    Their size advisor tells me I should get a 38R but I'm pretty sure that's too short and too tight, as I'm usually a 42L.

    I'm mostly concerned with shoulder and sleeve length - my waist I expect to be smaller in the coming months - so can anyone spare some advice regarding the Napoli fit for a fella such as myself?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.
