    A really nice look. Really love the color and subtle texture of the jacket.

    Wind chill down to -12F so layering is the order of the day.

    @MrChris every time you post a fit picture, I can't find something I don't love.

    @An Acute Style except for the wardrobe part, was it a 'good' movie? I have quite high expectations for this, seeing as I love the 007-gadgety all decked out spies movies.

    Superb DB, mate! I really, really like it. The whole combo, in fact, is great. Perfectly executed in my opinion.

    @Spandexter, nice texture and color combination, really nice outfit.

    @An Acute Style, really love how much personality your outfits exhude. Some may like it, some may not but whether it is loved or not your can tell you are being your unique self, and that is very rare nowadays.

    X-post from Noodles' thread … normally wouldn't post this here, but given the discussion on jacket length and the esteem I have for all of you, I'd like to get your feedback on what works here and what doesn't proportion/fit wise. If you've got a minute, I'd love to hear your thoughts … I need fresh ideas.

    Thanks!

    Hello Gents!

    I got my SuitSupply order the other day and I'd like to get some feedback on what I should be looking to improve. (Sorry if there's too much "photo documentation" :embar:)

    I ordered a 34R double-breasted Madison suit to test the waters as I haven't worn a DB in ages and not sure if it's even something I should be considering…

    Initial thoughts: Lapels to big for my body, jacket maybe a bit long … I think DB's are supposed to be a bit shorter than a SB? Maybe a tad too big? Button position too high for me? Pants are too slim/awkward.


    I also ordered a single-breasted Havana Linen suit. Last year, I purchased a 36S Havana Linen SC and have come to feel that its too big in the shoulders and blousey in the "skirt" (don't know if there's a better term). So, one of my objectives was to see if a 34R was a better fit.

    Initial thoughts: Pants are better, but not ideal. The 34R jacket's a better fit than the 36S, but perhaps could go even smaller? Maybe not?


    I also like the idea of using a casual DB suit jacket as a blazer, but again not sure if it works for me…

    Initial thoughts: Even though i just folded the hem, I'm feeling that maybe cuffs might not be the best look for me? I pretty much cuff all my trousers to 1.75", but I think I may have a long torso, or my jackets are too long and it's making my legs look short. It could also be too much contrast? Keeping things in proportion is proving difficult.

    I'd like to try their SoHo DB and another SB. I'm thinking that their more tailored/structured fits would be better for me, but right now I'm looking for casual summer suiting and I'm not sure there's really any cross-over there as far as SuitSupply is concerned.

    Anyhoo, I think this was a good experiment, especially since I can return everything. I hope to get some good feedback as I'm feeling kinda lost.

    Thanks so much!!!

    EDIT: Also, I forgot to mention that in some fits they do have a 32R. I'm not sure if that would be too small, but thought I'd throw it out there. The measurements for the 32R in the shoulders and chest are basically the same as Kent Wang suggested for me. They are also the same as Epaulet's Southwick in a 36S which are my best fitting jackets. The 32R waist however is about 2.4" smaller and I don't know how much that would affect the overall fit.
