    Honestly, it looks good on you, nothing that shocks me...

    actually, I also find some things pretty bad:
    - the sizing is really inconsistent. of course, I can order and send back my suits for free, but that means my money is away for like 14 days & I have to wait for the UPS guy etc.
    - the wrong labeling of the fabric is really bad. I never experienced it myself, but I would be not pleased to receive any other fabric than stated on the website.
    - quality seems to go down with every new collection. prices are going up on a lot of items, though
    - they generally move more and more into "fashun", which I personally dislike.

    Still, here in Europe, Suitsupply offers by far the best value for your money. So I will continue buying from them ;-)

    So I ordered the Havana for the first time, and I went up one size. Here are the fit pics, what do you guys think?

    There is a weird line next to one of the shoulders, there is some collar gap, and (not pictured) there is a small lump of fabric below the collar at back.

    What I think needs to be done: shorten the sleeves, lower the collar, and shorten the collar. Do you think it's worth it, or should I try a smaller size?

    Another question: For anyone who has tried both, how does the fit of the London model compare to the fit of the Tuxedo?

    Also, I can't remember if I asked this, has anyone had the tailors there remove the belt loops? If so, did they do a good job? I tried a London and liked the fit but not sure I'd trust the in-house tailors to do more than the necessary let-out of the trouser waist/seat (and maybe not even that if others had bad experiences; have heard mixed reviews).

    Their tailors can be quite hit or miss. The first time they completely fucked up my suit, but they were extremely apologetic about it and managed to fix it completely for free. If you have a trusted tailer I'd go there instead.

    has anyone else that doesn't have immediate access to a brick and mortar store had issues with tailoring? i wanted to get the sides of my jacket taken in a bit, but the pick stitching is everywhere and makes it a little difficult for tailoring...

    ^ I have that exact suit. No "oily sheen" issues that I've ever noticed. It's a touch darker than it appears on the website as well.

    The jacket you bought has pick stitching on the side seams?

    What are your thoughts on the suit? Also, do you have any pictures?

    Yes, way back in the thread. It's one of my favorites.

    yeah, the jacket has it on almost all its seams. the only exception is probably the shoulder seams.

    Could you take some pics of the suit and post it please? I've been looking for a light grey suit but I'm not sure on the color of the Sienna. I like the color on this suit http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit...3516i/P3516I,en_US,pd.html?start=4&cgid=Suits but I much prefer the styling on the Sienna.
