    New suits from previous seasons. If you are a 40/50, you can occasionally see a runway sample or two. All are first quality. It is sometimes a little hard to find a staple gray or blue, but not impossible. It is very much worth the drive. Also check out Maasmechellen Village. Quieter Suit supply outlet and sometimes different stock. Outlets exist because the retail store never mark down items, even during Jan/July sales

    I'm a fan of a couple of these myself. The lengths look fine to me, but what I can't figure out is why they don't list the P2P. Seems like it makes sizing a pain.

    I ordered a Napoli suit in linen in my recommended size 48...trousers fit is perfect, jacket as well EXCEPT sleeves length.
    I need about 1.5 inches more.
    Just called customer service (very nice) and they recommended that I return the suit and get the Long version ie size 94.
    But won't the jacket length be too long then?
    Just I just let out the 1.5 inches (if there is enough fabric) and add 1 or 2 buttons more or get the size 94?

    Thanks for your advice :)

    Possibly. I have the brown linen check pre-ordered so I'll see if I encounter any more inconsistency when it arrives and report back.

    just went to the DC store today, they had about 5 to 6 of the midnight blue shawl lapel tux that has been posted in the thread a few times. was in a hurry so no clue on sizes or anything. salesman told me these are the last few pieces in the entire country.

    just a heads up though, the jacket is single vented. i was on the fence about it but that was a deal breaker for me.

    i bought the 1 button, peak lapel tux and took it to my tailor who guessed it was ralph lauren or BB.

    Any sports coats or suits in a 24 (or 48 for sports coats) I will happily buy if someone will proxy them.

    I am considering adding a 5th button but my London only came with one extra cuff button - did yours come with two?

    thanks mate. yeah, i've got a washington and a washington half. i'm actually quite fond of the strong shoulders. both fit me perfectly, just had to shorten the sleeve length by 1cm and cuff up the trousers.

    It is wise to buy Washington and have a tailor change the lapels from peak to notch? I don't plan on using the boutonniere.

    I'd advice against it. It's not worth the hassle nor the cost, and the buttonhole will look weird, as the angle is off. Which washington suit/jacket do you want to change?

    Anyone of them. I'm not a fan of peak laps at all. I wouldn't mind trying the fits but I was looking for something slim. Do you think I should purchase another style then have a tailor make the necessary changes?
