Thanks for the question. In all honesty I haven't worn suitsupply long enough for me to criticize their build quality.Given your experience with SS, what do you think of their quality, in terms of materials and construction?
I saw this coat, which looks quite nice.
Also, I've read that SS garments are ultra-slim cut. I'm normally a 42R. Would you recommend 44 in SS?

I bought some items on regular price, and some others on the outlets (price is ridiculously low, as in 250$ us for full canvas pieces). So my expectations are lower, obviously. It remains made in china.
Their outerwear I find great, because you can wear your stuff without being overly careful like you would with a multi hundred or thousand piece.
All in all, their pieces are fashion forward, so it'll depend on your age too. I'm 34, and fit into their clearly "tall and slim" philosophy. While I find some things (trousers) too slim, their outerwear looks sleek and professional (pay attention to the lapels issue where on some pieces it goes over the top- doesn't seem to be the case of your piece).recently they started going with blends in their collection which I find is only done as a cost cutting measure, and it's a shame. It can help with durability on some pieces (100% alpaca for example). I would definitely suggest to size up. I wear 38L in both Spier Mackay and suitsupply, and usually buy a 40 overcoat.
Best is to try in store (if you can), both their customer service and stores are outstanding and very accomodating.
