    What is the durability/quality of suitsupply's jort line like? People often say super 150s are unfit for everyday wear so I'm wary of pulling the trigger on the jort for work attire. But the fine-ness of the wool isn't the only criteria for suit durability/quality so I would like some feedback. Thanks alot.

    Super 150 is not ideal for daily use unless there are compelling climate reasons.

    I will happily to wear s150 everyday, as long as you have an office job the suit will not tear down quick.

    Don't 150s tend to get wrinkles fairly easily? I'd imagine it wouldn't be an everyday suit just for that reason unless you can press it a couple times per week.

    I've seen 1-2 150s that show a little of the suit construction...little odd but yeah...
    From my experience, pretty easy to wrinkle and definitely not something that would be suited for daily use.

    It really depends on the cloth... not just the number.

    +1, I've never had a wrinkle problem with my kiton S180's or Brioni 150's. And keep in mind that high end 100's might sometimes beat out shit 150/180/200's when it comes to fabric feel. My main point is just not to get caught up in the whole Super whatever ranking system. If you want a pretty crude test then walk into the store crumple the sleeve a bit and see how well it bounces back that will give you a rough idea of what you are going to be dealing with.

    I suggest asking in the SuitSupply thread, in which people have direct experience with Jort cloths.

    I bought JORT blue birdseye and it wears pretty good if you keep in mind that is not a MTM or Bespoke suit.
