2.5 cm longer sleeves, 3 cm longer jacket, 2 cm tighter waist in both jacket and pants and 4 cm longer pants
I'm a L size. I love the length of jacket and sleeves, perfect and no adjustments needed. Making the trousers tighter tho is pretty dumb seeing susu has the tightest trousers in the market with nothing or very little to take out (unless I misread and only the waist is tighter? Or around calves and leg?

Only the waist is tighter 2 cm on the trousers, they are not more tapered

Were there any camel coats in larger sizes? Like 44-46?

Would def be interested in some of those outlet overcoats that I missed in the sizes above.

A question to those with more experience with different types of lining on suits. When assembling a suit in their online Custom Made programme it states in the lining infographic that the lining impacts the drape of the garment - both, jacket and trousers.

  • Full lined: "Fully lined jackets feature a linking throughout the entirety of a jacket's interior. Unlike half lined, they offer a strong, more structured drape and more luxurious wear."
  • Half lined: "Half lined jackets feature a linking throughout the top half of a jacket's interior, including the arms. Unlike fully lined, they offer a lighter, more natural drape."
  • The same applies to trousers.

Surely the lining does not have much of an effect on the drape? Should that not be most affected by the outer fabric and the canvassing? I would appreciate people's experience in this regard.

it’s fine: however the fancier ones like the alpaca design I have are fully synthetic. Be wary of that

It definitely has an effect on drape in my experience. Mostly in the back of the jacket, though. Depending on what you're wearing underneath, and the texture of the jacket fabric, there can often be a bit of friction in the back that causes it to snag a bit and drape less cleanly. The smooth lining allows the jacket to move more freely over whatever else you're wearing. That also makes it more comfortable, and is why I typically prefer a full lining in all of my jackets. Guys often talk about the benefits of half or quarter lining in hot weather, but I struggle to tell the difference. Especially if the lining is a good quality Cupro/Bemberg.
