    I read an article about them while I was flipping through a GQ magazine and saw that they had some interesting suit designs for surprisingly little money (especially for suits advertised in GQ). I'm heading up to NYC in a few weeks and was looking for some input as whether or not it's worth a stop. Opinions?

    Well, I read the three longest threads and I don't think it's for me (at least the OTR + tailor option I was looking at). It's not really a quality issue - I'm a freshman in college so I'll take what I can get in the price range as long as it's of decent construction - but a sizing thing. They don't even offer a 36S and at 5'5 135lbs a 38S isn't too great of a fit. I guess I could try out the MTM though.

    By the way, made my way into the SuitSupply NYC store today. I was in utter SHOCK at the quality and fit of the suits. I would say the fit is like RLBL, but without the heavily-roped shoulders on any of their models. The suits need just pant cuff hemming. Everything else, particularly on the jacket is absolutely perfect right off-the-rack.

    For reference, I wear a 40/42R and I'm 6'0 and 185.

    I personally had the same problem of finding any decent 36S at all in store. Didn't really have a good experience in store as no one helped me, and there was a very limited selection of suits at smaller sizes.

    I do however want to give them another chance, as the quality seems pretty decent.
