Very curious to see reactions. I believe I read a favorable article in either WSJ or NYT a couple months ago.

I never got a suit from them but a few shirts and ties, in their london store.

The shirts are a very good fit (i buy slim) when i am looking for a step up from my charles tyrwhitt shirts i head over there.

Their custom made shirts start at 90 pounds.

Looks promising. I dislike some of the higher button stance jackets on the site, though

Here's the WSJ article, if anyone's interested. Really sounds like someone from SuitSupply's marketing team got the article writer to bite hard just ahead of their NYC store launch, so kudos to whoever landed that fish. I'll be curious to hear opinions about the suits, though. Some of their linen fabrics in particular look nice. Also be warned SuitSupply's site itself is very NSFW.

This.

Also I just ordered a cotton jacket from Suit Supply online. Not quite sure how it will fit yet, but they have a pretty good return policy if it doesn't work for me. And if I like it, the price was definitely right at $139

I read that WSJ article awhile back and watched some corresponding video with the author. I don't want to bash her, but she really didn't sound like she knew much about high quality suits. That being said, assuming the tailors who ranked the suits knew their stuff, it is somewhat impressive how well the SuitSupply suits graded out (and equally unimpressive how the Hart Schaffner Marx suits did).

I am not in the market for a middle of the road suit right now, but when I am, I will consider them. Hopefully when that time comes around there are some reviews, pictures, etc. of the work coming out of their New York location. I would be interested to see how they stack up to a place like Alton Lane.

I got the cotton jacket that I ordered in the mail yesterday. It's pretty much exactly what I'm looking for - a lightweight, unconstructed khaki SC at an affordable price ($149 incl. shipping). Unfortunately, the length is a little too short for me. I ordered my usual size (40L) but it was about an inch too short. Length BOC was about 31.5". I'm 6'4" so I need at least another 0.75"-1" on the length to make it wearable.

I'm hesitant to just order the next size up because there's no guarantee a 42L would be a full inch longer than the 40L (not to mention it might be too big in the shoulders, chest, etc.), so I would at least want to try it on before ordering another size. I only get up to NY maybe once every couple months or so, but next time I'm there I'll try and swing by their new store.

If this had been long enough I probably would have kept it...it was a nice slim cut and would have needed only minimal tailoring, if any at all. There were some other small details I liked about it too - the functional buttonholes on the sleeves, the wide lapels (about 3.5" - most RTW slim cut jackets in a similar price range have too slim lapels...e.g. Banana Republic), and it came with a nice wooden hanger and a quality garment bag, which is more than I would normally expect for such an inexpensive jacket.

Anyone else try something out at their new store yet?

Would you be able to post full measurements for everyone to check out, ie shoulder-to-shoulder, pit-to-pit, across top button (if 2 button), and sleeve length? Thanks!

Yep, when I get home from work tonight I'll post some full measurements of the jacket.

Sounds good! Thanks for the update. Unless I'm misinformed, 31.5" is an acceptable length for a long jacket. I'm 6"2', so a long would be perfect for me. I wonder how long the regular is. Pics would be great too!

I got the length wrong the first time, it's actually 31" BOC. 31.5" probably would have been a little better for me, and I may have kept it, but 32" would be ideal. Here's the rest of the measurements and some pics. Again, this was tagged a 40L:

Shoulder to shoulder - 18.5"
Length BOC - 31"
Sleeve - 26"
Chest - 21"
Waist - 19"

Ah, I see what you're saying. Slightly longer and a lower button stance would be perfect for you. Still it fits you well for no alterations and 150 bucks. Thanks for posting.
