    Yes, there are really that many more fabrics available in MTM! For most gentlemen the custom made program has something that will be close to what they are looking for as far as classic suiting goes, especially since they started offering the Sienna cut and super 150's.

    You need to go in-store and get fitted by an associate to get access to additional fitting adjustments, you cannot make sizing adjustments in custom made on the website.

    Now if you're looking for something very specific you'll probably have to go MTM. There are the entry level price "house" fabrics which are all Vitale Barberis Canonico and similar to the custom made fabrics. Where it differs significantly is the cut length fabrics, you can browse the majority of them here actually: http://www.aristonfabrics.com/ . In addition to the Ariston fabrics, Susu MTM offers Solbiati. Some select stores (NY Soho, NY Madison, Chicago mainly) offer Drapers, Holland & Sherry, Huddersfield and Dugdale.

    The core line of Havana jackets should still be the same, I'm mainly referring to the all-season suiting and sport coats. The seasonal stuff and Havana variations (Havana wide, Havana pleated, deconstructed, etc.) you'll definitely want to try on as it's not super consistent. They aren't all just slimmer either, I went down a size in the Havana wide for example.

    I can def concur this experience.. I walked in to the DC Store last week just checking stuff out.. Im usually a 44L in most of their stuff and a 46L in their slimmer stuff(Washington) but I had to go up to a 46L on a three piece Lazio that I ended up purchasing..the sleeves were also comically short which has never been the case..I was kind of shocked that things have drastically changed measurement wise since the purchase of my last suit from them in 2015..

    Likewise. The last time I bought a 38L Lazio was a few years ago but I remember it being a very full cut. I used it as a reference for my custom suits and it was significantly slimmer. I even had to let out the sides.

    As usual their sizing inconsistencies are the worst part of their business. It seems they have a big following but the underlying issue is the sizing and the changes to commonly understood fits and sizes

    It is not. I wanted to lower the gorge too.

    Unfortunately, no go on changing gorge height. Only changing width, from standard to wide and style selection of notch, peak and shawl.

    Yeah, I really wish we could do that. They do work on adding additionally customizable features and that's one I really hope they look to add.

    I concur. My London suit from 2013 is a 38R - still fits me today. Whereas the 38R double-breasted suits I purchased a few years later don't fit at all. I was recently sized at the local SuSu store as 42R - so I purchased a 42R Havana jacket (and the fit is different than what I tried on in-store) and I'm confident I can go up to 44R for a better fit.

    I just now noticed you’re in Tauranga — had a friend online in that city I Skyped with a while back. The climate seems a lot more humid than the rest of the country. Can you wear traditional overcoats in the “dead” of winter? (July?) or would they be too warm? The thinner overcoats SS has tradionally offered for spring/summer (not this year though) would probably be ideal
