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 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.
I agree with @Imperatores that a lining lets the jacket slide nicely against you when you move. It drapes along your hip when you walk, for example. There's less friction and bunching of fabric.

Not that you asked, but I still mostly prefer less lining.

In what countries is the outlet still open? I try different countries through Nord VPN and it always says that the outlet is not available in my country.

So if I try to order something for example from Belgium to another European country then it would not be possible?

Dang. The solaro suit I was looking at dropped $50. They also restocked the emerald green flannel DB, but it sold out in my size by the time I added it to my cart. They had a few waistcoats that dropped from $120 to $50. I snagged a few of those.

I need your help!

I am a size 48/50 and saw this suit I really love, but obviously the 48/50 is sold out... but.. there is a size 94!

Is this a long version of the 48 ? its in the same column basically..

I am 183cm tall if that information helps :)

Don’t get the long version if the regular fits you well, especially in the sleeve length and waist.

No 38s restocks =(

They do price match I believe in stores, but not sure if they will do it if the item is still online or if they actually marked some off in store (think the former)
