For sale is an absolutely uxorious Suitsupply LaSpalla in Navy Check. The size is a 40R. Worn maybe 2 times b/c I have a huge rotation, and this is too elegant.
$1045 with tax, but feels like a $2500 suit.
Jacket: The right sleeve is slightly shorter than the left. It's pretty much unnoticeable.
Pants: Hem is at a 29 1/3 or so with no room. Waist is about a 35 with some room to let out.
La Spallas have no belt loop, so I had my tailor sew the side adjusters to the position I liked. This can't be noticed by anyone, and it can be undone if needed for like $5.
The color is a navy with a very discreet check pattern.
Our most elegant fit, the La Spalla, stands out this season in this E.Thomas pure S150's wool version. Constructed with a full canvas interior and understated Prince-de-Galles, this luxe navy suit features a slightly widened notch lapel, flap pockets, and details like real horn buttons, hand-stitched narrow pleated shoulder, and accompanying flat front trousers with side adjusters.
One of our most refined fits, the La Spalla offers a full canvas jacket with a hand-stitched narrow pleated shoulder and collar. The accompanying flat front trousers are cut slim and feature suspender buttons.
A pleated shoulder, also known as a Spalla Camicia, is a true hallmark of authentic Neapolitan tailoring traditional. Originally intended to provide a greater range of motion, pleated shoulders today are primarily an aesthetic choice; one made all the better by the hand stitching that gives it a unique artisanal look.
