    I'm going against the grain by admitting there's a few promising elements. Although I admit there's a lot of peacock-y garments, I saw a handful that I'd like to try!

    But, as you guys said, it would be good if they had at least a couple of grays and blues in each fit.

    Agreed, Suitsupply needs a few staple fabric suits which are always restocked and available throughout any time time of the year (Which aren't limited to the Napoli fit).

    Some of the statement pieces are my type and I would buy them, but I'm still trying to build a base wardrobe first, so I need some staple-ish suits.

    I pre-ordered this, thought I'd give it a try.

    Though on a close-up of the fabric, it looks kinda of "dirty", not sure what the fabric type is called and I'm not sure if I like it or not.

    Also I need versatile suits, I'm wondering how well this would be split up (wearing jacket or pants separately).

    It won't split up well at all. The peak lapels and shiny fabric make it an obvious orphaned suit jacket, and the same goes for the trousers. This one would split up quite well:

    And this one (it's a size too small here, and makes the guy look very pear shaped):

    Obviously this one as well, but I hate the cut:

    Does anyone know how extravagant Suit Up's MTM fabric selection is? They say they have over 600 fabrics to choose from, but I haven't been able to find anywhere an opinion on them and given what I've seen so far in the Spring '15 collection, I wouldn't be surprised to find just a few decently-looking fabrics.

    I like the first one but the horizontal stripes were a deal breaker for me, looks odd to me.

    As for the second one, green isn't my colour, nor is Havana my fit (Don't like the lapel width).

    The third one, great fabric but again, Copenhagen isn't my fit either because of the lapels.

    I would have gone for this:

    [​IMG]

    But it was already gone in my size. [​IMG]

    I don't think the peaked lapels are an issue for splitting up the Washington, but the fabric probably will be (Depends on the sheen difference IRL compared to studio lighting/editing).

    I remember that the Hudson I got for F/W looked fairly shiny on the website, but had hardly any shine when it actually arrived.

    If I do decide to keep it I'll probably split it up anyway, but probably not as much since it doesn't work as well as the suits above would.

    The good thing is that by the time the suit actually arrives, the full collection will probably be available, so I can just exchange it for a more versatile suit instead, if needed.

    I would say lengthen the sleeves and hem the pants. other than that, looks pretty spot on.

    thanks for the input @Pb924 . I was thinking about getting the pants narrowed, the sleeves narrowed, and bring in the upper waist.

    Does anyone have the plain Sienna 130s navy suit? Seen here!

    I'm wondering how it looks in person. The online chat said it's dark but kind of a blue marine. Does it have any sheen or is it pretty flat? I'm looking for a dark navy staple type suit and am considering this one. I already own the 3485 SEEN HERE and since it is lighter in person than in the picture, I am curious about the seemingly darkest sienna linked above.

    In addition to my question, the SA said a few things of interest

    1) They will soon allow hemming via online purchases
    2) US access to the outlet is coming
    3) They are considering making swatch books available

    I would do none of those alterations. High chance that everything will look too skinny/tight afterwards. Unless that is the look you want.

    If anyone is considering a Hudson jacket, I would highly suggest it.

    oh, I thought it was only Can that wasn't granted access. So I assume just all NA doesn't get access?
