    It looks like it run classically proportioned. Not boxy, not skinny. Very SF approved, I'm sure

    Here's stitchy in two soots (hope you don't mind the El Supremo stalkage!)

    I think stich is a 42 or 44 (?)

    That is a fine looking suit. Doodles go for it if you can. I love the lapels on it. Meaty!

    (With French accent) That's "Tar-jay" :)

    But short of bespoke, if SS were to fit you well I wouldn't turn nose up at it. You should check them out. It's part of developing your eye for fit and details. Think of it as practice!

    I've considered suit supply a couple times but I don't like the fit. Button stance is usually fairly high and the pants are too skinny for me.

    I'm with stitches and SB: try lots first, don't buy even though at the sale price at NMWA, this is a great deal.

    I like the cut on some SuitSupply jackets, it's rare to find a cut that fit my forward shoulders. :( I will kop soon from them because of that.

    They do tend that way. But CLarinet player looks good in them as do others. The point is to try them if only to recognize what doesn't work.

    Btw: tipped and untipped on your CAPPELLIs?

    I'm most impressed with Suit Supply's logistics. Totally insane. Ordered a jacket and it arrived in a giant suit box...the jacket was hanging, unfolded. Took like three days to arrive in Seoul. It didn't fit (way too short, massive collar gap). Return postage was paid for. Dropped it off at UPS and they received it in two days. The exchange (an assortment of accessories as I suspect most of their fare will be too short) is already on its way. I opted for an exchange rather than a refund simply because of their amazing logistical support.

    I wish I could do that. Order and return if no fit. Here they charge me ~40% in customs and clearance fees. On leather goods above ~$80 another +40% "luxury" tax (then 80% total! just to ensure understanding). Who knew that shoes made out of leather are a luxury?
