Sliding in here once more. Initial buyer has been unresponsive :violin:

This time we have here the Suitsupply London suit in navy blue Super 110s wool by VBC. Size 38R. Jacket unaltered. Trousers hemmed to 30.5" uncuffed with another 2" of material to work with.

Slightly structured shoulders and a more traditional cut i.e. the English London fit. Worn 3-5 times and even comes with the 2nd edition of the SS paper and original thank you note in the uber long garment bag! Wow!

$230 shipped US/CAD. Let me know if you have any questions :)

Might as well share it here. My original 2018 MTM suit from SuSu Stockholm.

Love it! Such a nice color and fit. I like the sharp waist suppression, too. There is sometimes a preference for looser waist suppression around these parts--but this looks sharp.

What's the fabric?

It’s a classic 110 VBC. Ted did it for me and is probably the suit I feel more “powerful” in 🤗

Too much waist suppression for me. There is a lot of pulling. The sleeve pitch appears to be off as well.

That was one of the reasons I gave up on MTM. I can't think of a single occasion they got the sleeve pitch right.

Otherwise, a nice, classic look. The button stance is a lot better than the RTW DB options.

For me it’s exactly how I want it though :)

I saw that their navy pure cashmere fabric for custom overcoats just disappeared from the fabric selection site. I got told in store that it will get restocked within a month or so. I sent an email about an hour ago to their customer support. Was a bit curious about what they'd answer. Got a reply quick thereafter stating that it won't get restocked... :/

Anyone here who've experienced if their fabrics usually get resocked or not?

Cant speak for this specific fabric, but for shirts and suits a lot o fabrics get restocked. Just look online every now and then.

Tempted by the Camel parka, any one how this holds up with rain/colder temperature for max 20 minutes outdoors? Debating the parka vs the raincoat they have.

I love it but I can't imagine it is a good combo in terms of material and purpose. This is the kind of coat you'd like to wear when it is not so nice outside, but I don't think camel wool (or wool in general) is then the material to use.

Thanks, ended up sticking with the raincoat.

Can anyone comment of fit Brentwood versus Soho? I have Soho pants and eyeing a Brentwood one. Soho fits me well but it must nog be tighter, especially around the waist.
