    For SuSu suits, which style can I expect to have at least an 8" leg opening?

    IIRC, most every suit trouser has a 7.9 hem.

    This Havana arrived in the mail for me today: Wool/Silk/Cashmere blend -

    I know immediately that any suit w/ a cashmere/silk blend in it is improper to serve as a workhorse suit, so I'm not intending on using this one hard. What is the best care though for this as opposed to a 110Wool sort of deal?

    Depends on trouser size I would imagine. My trousers are size 34 and all but my Havana came with approximately 8" openings. Havana was slightly smaller.

    I own that suit. I've really only worn it as a sc though. I just hang it after I wear it and brush it on occasion.

    Btw, it's a very warm suit. Probably not suitable for daytime during the summer.

    What are your favorite fabric blends?

    How warm or breathable is hemp-blend fabric? How wrinkly?

    Hi. Do you mind taking some pics? How is the fabric and colour? I am looking to order this myself!

    Sure: These turned out very grey looking under tungsten light. IRL it definitely has a more blueish hue, like the stock photo; not quite as saturated, but still blue. The fabric feels wonderful, but the lack of padding in the shoulders is very noticeable because of how the suit drapes. Like another poster mentioned above, it is very warm; I tried it on in my house for a few minutes and could feel it hold in heat - very useful for winter, not so much for summer, despite the light weight of the fabric (which would have led me to believe it was a very cool-wearing suit).

    I bought a Napoli suit (navy) yesterday... Fingers crossed for the trousers. I hope they fit properly.

    Thanks for the responses. But remembered SuSu jackets have working button sleeves. Still the case?

    Thanks Shawn! I never upload any of my more formal outfits because I really think I am not classic enough, LOL :p

    The Havana and Washington are the slimmest susu i own. But it's not a full size difference, maybe a half inch in the waist. However, when compared to a Napoli it is probably close to a full size difference. The color is much more similar to the stock photos than the pictures the other user posted. I would say that it is actually the closet in color to the stock photos of all the "blue" pieces I have ordered. I think other colors may photograph more true to color than blue. I'm no expert on that, though.

    I'm looking at purchasing either a Jort or Havana linen jacket and could use some sizing advice. I'm fairly tall and slim (~6'2) and RLBL in a 38r fits me well, but is a bit short. Would 38L work in the Jort or Havana? I'm worried 38L might be too roomy...

    ^The only way to really know is to try one on, but for reference, I'm 6'3", 170lb, with a relatively long torso, and 38L is my size in the Havana. 40L fits me well also (with a little bit of taking-in), but the sleeves are too long. I can't imagine the Havana would be too roomy on you unless you are very slim.

    Havana seems to fit pretty darn slim. I prefer a long as well, but then the pants are even slimmer b/c long sizes are drop7 as opposed to drop6 on the regular sizes.
