The Traveller fabric is dreadful: too light, very prone to wrinkling, awful drape, cannot be lined. Steer clear of this heinous marketing ploy.

Does anyone own a Traveller suit? I purchased the Navy Blue Single and Double breasted suits on 3/11/19 and both suits are ripping at the seams under the arm pits. Has anyone had this issue? Do you think Suitsupply would do something about it?
How much have you worn it? Worth taking it to the shop and ask. Never had such an issue though.

I have a traveller blazer that I really wear hard, had it about four months, almost never shows any wrinkles, at least that is my experience

Last time I was at SuSu, a wider lapel and lower buttoning point was not possible in custom made. Lapel wise, you could only choose between their three options (narrow, regular, wide). The wide one is comically wide. They did mention that the lapel width increses when choosing 2.5 button configuration but haven‘t tried it out yet.
I remember that it was possible to lower the button stance when they still used Munro as their MtM supplier. Haven't ordered a jacket since then. You sure it isn't possible? Perhaps it differs between "regular" custom made and "Custom Made from Scratch".

You can still do it in CM from Scratch, but not on any of the standard models in "normal CM"

That is interesting! Do you have the fabric number or could you perhaps link the jacket (if it still is on their site)?

The fabric is 2080.2-143, not sure they still have this in dark grey (mine), looks like they have a mid grey version on site

I've seen some SuSu items made from like 60% camel, and I've seen coats made from it.
Yes, I have a camel wool coat from SuSu. But a 100% camel wool suit is something I haven't seen before (except bespoke) and the price is not even that high.

Not from SS and not a full suit, but S&M did a camel jacket a couple years back. It was a F/W weight.
