My Cavours after alteration fits better than any Susus as well. $460 Loro Piana full canvas suit that feels Italian soft is a no brainer.

But I think Michael81 may have a point here. They're boring and don't fit well. Please forget you ever heard of Cavour.
Hmm Cavour looks interesting at 50% off though I agree with @Michael81 the product pictures look a bit weird (shoulders and sleeves). I might go for a trip to Oslo and try their stuff and buy some AW garments next sale.

Cavours might be in every detail as good as @Riva describes them, but still it doesn't change the fact that they are - according to size guide - very short. If you're taller than 1.8m then there's a pretty good chance they won't fit you very well.
This is why I haven't tried them. The 54 size is way too short for me.

You think Cavour's plain navy offering is boring and this is something else? Yawn...
My guy, maybe you should start a Cavour thread to discuss the brand.

@Michael81 A Washington Fit with notched lapels is interesting. I wonder if they would do the same with their lovely Wide lapel Havana fits. I'd like to see some less fitted options for a single breasted jacket as the Washington is now just too narrow for my shoulders in a size which would give good fitting elsewhere on my body.

It looks really cool. The gorge appears to be lower than the regular models, which is very attractive. I wonder how this new iteration fits. I've had decent results in the past with a 40L (trousers still too tight though) but I wouldn't be surprised if the new iteration is even slimmer. Bummer that it doesn't fit in the shoulders, the Washington has really good proportions if you're a taller guy.

Non sequitur: the new website doesn't link to the custom programme. Hopefully that means it will be expanded. It would be totally sweet to be able to get a custom version of that suit.

SS has been mixing polyester into their sleeves for quite some time. I believe they also use either straight up polyester or a blend for the trousers. I think maybe 3-4+ years ago they didn't use polyester and just used straight cupro, but I could be wrong on that.

Another place SS cuts corners is buttons. Not using real horn I think.

I'm just surprised that even on the Jort line that they aren't using straight up cupro. Especially when for example Cavour has a full-canvas suit on sale for upper $400s made in Italy. But Cavour doesn't make size 44 (italian/eu) whereas Suitsupply makes size 34R US.
Spier and Mackay uses straight up cupro in all their jackets.

Definitely won’t be worn in Singapore - except perhaps in my freezer-like office where I regularly wear a hopsack blazer and lightweight flannel pants. Since the island is so small and constantly sweat inducing most of us are looking for chilly locales for our holidays. I actually ordered the jacket whilst vacationing in Perth where it would have gotten a lot of wear in the 7-20c weather.
Sorry to bother you -- I have a question about the bomber jacket you bought. I initially was excited about it but later passed on it. Thinking back — I think the way it looked on the model made me think it would be too tight. But then, that particular model is always dressed in a size too small.

I am currently thinking about a leather jacket in the photo attached — this one is leather but similar in style to the camel wool one you bought. Does yours fit true to size? What is your overall impression? Can you lift and swing your arms comfortably? Thanks!
