    The Washington seems to have decent button stance.
    Sienna and La Spalla looks best though.

    I have a Jort (precursor to the La Spalla) and think the button stance is just right.

    Starting a new job in two weeks that will require me to wear a suit everyday. I live in Manhattan so I've decided to check Suitsupply out this evening and get fitted for 2-3 new suits. I'm on the larger side -- 6 foot, 235 pounds, broad shoulders and stocky. Anything I should know about what to look for before going?

    I would suggest you venture to other places as well, given your build I"m not sure the euro-italiano look is going to work. Try J Press, Paul Stuart or even Brooks Bros.

    Talk to Tyler in there - very agreeable bloke who will give you the time you need to make up your mind and won't hard-sell you. At that size you may have some difficulty as Suitsupply leans towards the slim in most of theit fits but you might get lucky.

    Ya, with KW around I would only go with SS if 1) trying to save ~$200 (IMO somewhat shortsighted given suit's lifetime) or 2) you particularly love a distinctive styling of a SS suit. I'm not sure I can get anything in the London style, which to me is almost a poor man's Tom Ford, through KW (or anywhere else for under $1k). I do like the SS stuff I have, though.

    The advantage of SS, for those of us who live near one, is being able to get fitted in person

    and this is often worth the price of a suit alone.

    Recently stopped by suit supply in Soho and their suits are great.....best of all no one was pushy or snobby (a hint many other store clerks could use)

    The lazio and Washington lines really stuck out to me

    I think he's looking at the pics 400 Degreez posted. Admittedly, his shoulders have quite a few issues; don't think I have seen those as much on yours.

    I forgot to mention that Kent Wang is having a trunk show in NY soon so that could potentially level the playing field

    Yeah, I don't have that advantage unfortunately. I like suitsupply and the stylings/offerings. I've ordered from the site, and i've just had too many issues with the consistency of sizing even within the same fits. I prefer suitsupply for any of their suits that are sub-500, but beyond that price point i think there's too much value in kw when put side to side

    I'm 6-0, 230 lbs and I recently purchased a size 46R in the dark grey Napoli. It fit me with no problems.
