    ^^ Oddly that one isn't available for pre-order in Canada. Too bad. I quite like that one.

    What do you guys think of Madison cut? What's the difference between that and the soho?

    yjeezle, not sure why you're not finding it but i clicked on your link and was able to find a 36S and was not grayed out.

    FYI, not sure if their sizing is a bit different but my chest measures 38 but they fit me in a 36S in the Napoli cut based on my shoulders. It fit great, including the chest. Maybe I have narrow shoulders? That same day I went to BB and tried on a 38S 1818 Milano (always been 38S) and it fit me well. Asked to try a 36S and it was way too small.

    anyone else curious why they sell cargo pants and even suggest pairing jackets with cargo pants in some of their models?

    are they trying to bring cargos into style??

    Because its been a trend for awhile now. SS has many great pieces and a lot of lame #menswear stuff too.
    They're not where you shop if you are fuddy duddy low armhole wearing conservative type (thats not fair they do have conservative stuff, but the whole concept of suit supply is to push the envelope with regard to pairing unorthodox pieces, etc). It's not about whether it's wrong or not.

    wohoo - my suit supply jacket has arrived. So impressed with the speed and packaging of the jackets.

    Can i grab your opinion on the fit - below is the 36R

    I also got the 38R, the 36R feels a lot more fitted but still comfortable.

    this is my first proper jacket not apart of a suit and would love to have it as a staple piece in my wardrobe.

    thanks!

    How does SuitSupply compare in comfort, quality, and fit to PRL (half canvassed) and RLBL, Paul Stuart, or Samuelsohn (full canvas)?

    Some items off the F/W collection are looking pretty nice but it's a shame all the odd jackets are basically contemporary fits.

    I would've loved them to come up with an odd jacket Sienna or La Spalla...

    I think there's more stuff coming, I was hoping for some different options as well (there are some confusing things like other fabrics of items in the pre-sale that are not currently available).

    Unrelated..
    A couple items, like these two

    http://us.suitsupply.com/jackets/ja...99/C699,en_US,pd.html?start=20&cgid=Pre-Order
    http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit.../P3714I,en_US,pd.html?start=19&cgid=Pre-Order

    seem to be really close in texture to a flannel, but there's no mention of it in the description of the item. Is it just a similar type of weave or do they not think thats relevant information? Or am I just completely wrong?

    I don't think either of them are flannel.

    The first one is probably a wool/polyamide blend, which would explain the fuzziness and the absence of reference to flannel.

    The second doesn't look like flannel from the close up.

    I'm really digging all the Havana odd jackets for this years F/W collection. Some of the suiting is pretty great, but I'll be all over the odd jackets like a rash!

    Wool/polyamide? That's a bit of a let down. I thought they only used premium fabrics.

    I emailed this question about the greay lazio to customer service yesterday. Their response was still bland: "It definitely uses a heavier wool and is more suited for the fall/winter."




    Looks like shoulders and chest fit fine. Maybe a touch of bowing in the lapels but that could be from holding your arm up. Same trendy short-ness as the other Regular length Havana's.

    Something from their Fall lineup is better suited for Fall? Wow, great job customer service. I have called a couple times and have found their reps to be about as knowledgeable as your average Jos A Bank rep.

    I got it now, talk about quick delivery! I ordered last night around 8 and it showed up at my doorstep at noon today.

    The fabric rocks and it´s a perfect autumn suit. It needs to have the legs shortened a bit and the sleeves shortened 1-2 cm and that´s it. I´ll post some pics when it´s back from the tailor.

    i actually really like their contemporary lineup... (i have a short torso / long legs), but i wish they had some basic staple suits in the havana fit...

    do you think any of the jackets from F/W are suitable for all seasons (minus summer)?

    Fit is dependent on your build and the exact models you compare, so I'm not sure you're going to get a clear cut answer to that.

    Being in the UK, I'm not familiar with Paul Stuart of Samuelsohn's wares, but I would say that the mid-point of fabric quality range of both Polo and Black Label is higher than SS (esp. Polo, which can have some really nice fabrics). SS construction generally seems more straightforward too, although of a perfectly acceptable quality. However, these differences are more than reflected in the price, making SS an excellent value proposition if you're happy enough with its quality (especially true if comparing price to non-sale RL). If you place a particularly high value on higher-end luxury cloths, you may not find enough of what you like in SS. I suggest visiting a SS shop & having a good look round to get a feel for the range yourself, but that's my vibe.
