    Generally agree, but I'm "that guy" and it's worked out OK so far.

    thats actualy not bad for $400. There are obviously issues but for $400 you look good. I wouldn't sell that as bespoke though.

    The suit reviewed in that thread is RTW, not their MTM product.

    I don't think Suitsupply has ever marketed its products as bespoke. Although, as a Dutch company, there might have been some dodgy translation of the word 'maatwerk' somewhere down the line - it can be taken as meaning either MTM or bespoke.

    The suit I posted above is RTW and cost GBP300.

    To make it easier to search, I've cross posted this another post. All MTM:

    All MTM, the last one being quarter-lined with a natural shoulder (the others have more structure).

    They knew you wouldn't like inner pockets in the back of the jacket.

    Like, wow.

    I can't help but wonder what they had in mind with those...


    Extra's: bretels + bonuszakjes
    Natuurlijk bevat het 925-pak kleermakerswerk
    met een knipoog. Niet alleen doet SuitSupply
    er op aandrang van Jort Kelder standaard een
    paar bretels bij cadeau, ook bevat het jasje
    een aantal listige extra zakjes. Handig, voor
    wie ongezien z'n bonus wil wegstoppen.

    Hehe. On the other hand: it's full-canvas (as opposed to the rest of their OTR stuff).

    They even faked some Neapolitan sleevehead pluckering.

    I like the way the socks match the braces. It's that kind of subtle, refined, detail that really sets Meneer Kelder apart from the crowd.

    I think their ad campaign literally suits their image. I may suggest, next time they choose homosexuals, so they can extent their brand image and tap into new markets. Actually, who wants to be seen or identified with an average suit like Suit for Suckers Supply? When I was a pretty woman, I would certainly not touch a guy wearing a SuitSupply suit.........not enough class (and money).

    When were you a pretty woman and what happened?

    I picked up a GBP199 RTW suit there last week.

    I´d call it poor man´s Rubinacci. Very Neapolitan style, reasonably good Italian 110´s wool, half-canvassed, double vented, high button stance (but not too high for me). I know some have complained about sleeves being too short, but that is not my case (but I´m only 5´8¨). They got the alterations right in half an hour.

    Of course, overall quality doesn´t match my MTM from elsewhere (Zegna), but I´d say it´s good value for money at about 1/3 the price.

    Really distracting. Hard to think about the suit when they´ve got a huge poster of a very hot woman downstairs at their Vigo St. shop....

    I just ordered a sportcoat from SuitSupply, as they seem to be one of the few online retailers who stock size EU44, though their size guide says its equivalent to US/UK size 35, when it's normally the same as 34, which is a bit strange. Hopefully it will not be too big.

    Suits currently start at £399. The choice of around 600 cloths can rise up to £2000.
    This is precisely why I purchase fabric and use CMT tailors...What type of cloth are they offering that could be worth a premium of $850.00 per yard? Calculation for those interested: Suit from high end cloth (2,000) less suit from regular cloth (400) equals 1,600 difference, divided by three yards (2 piece SB suit), equals 533 GBP or approximately $850.00 USD per yard. Someone is making a lot of moola on this deal.
