For some of us still waiting on orders, I imagine that SuitSupply's channels are slammed. Because, interestingly, even my custom made orders that were shipped from the atelier to their U.S. location nearly two weeks ago have not been sent to me from the U.S. location. Of course, no word on shipping for my outlet order. I'm impatient, but it's also not like I plan to wear these items outside anytime soon. 😂

Dunno if this has been discussed before, but on the UK site there is no explanation of what the different trouser styles entail fit-wise (slim, regular etc) . This is the same on the custom order system too, I can specify materials, button colours, cuffs etc - but no section on how they will fit. Can anyone explain this or give advice? Thanks

Edit: Is there an assumption with custom-made that I will go to the store to have the fit adjusted? And it seems Jort are the only regular fit trousers from the OTR range.

If you are able to, I highly recommend going to the store for a custom order fit. As others have pointed out, you can select your options online, save that configuration, and then go to a store to be fit. Online, custom made is only partially beneficial--you can only select options, but not alter fit. In store, they can adjust for all kinds of issues: size, dropped shoulders, sleeve length, trouser hem, etc. My suggestion is figure out the aesthetics--fabric, buttons, lining, all that jazz--online and then go to the store for the fit (if you are able to and feel comfortable doing so).

I couldn't pull this up on the US site. A few questions:

- How are much are they selling it for at outlet price and the original price?
- Is it goodyear welted?

I see a couple of premium models in the US site only discounted about 50% and they are sitting.
It is Blake Rapid, selling op for 399 €, now for 199 €. Did not pull the trigger because I do not know the leather and work quality. I have some Goodyear welted Heschung and Carmina boots, which I paid 300 EUR for on sale, so I am not sure about how the Jort boots compare.

What do you guys think of grey flannel tux?

I don't own a tux but is it the right move to get a non-black tux as your first one?

Second order came in today.

2 Siennas, 1 Lazio and 1 Napoli. 3 of these are from 2018 and one is from 2016. Always interesting to me to see how long they've been inventory.

I ordered this from the Outlet and absolutely love it. If you're going to purchase this as your only tux I wouldn't go for it. Instead I'd purchase a 4/all season fabric. If you understand that you'll be wearing this flannel tux ONLY during the colder months it is a no brainer at the price point.

@osw880 That gray tux is sharp and appropriate for most black tie events. Before it may not have made sense to drop $600+ on a tux you’ll wear once in a blue moon, but the current discount makes it is as good a time as ever to buy that tux. The fact that it’s not black is not something I’d be concerned about. I’ve been to several black-tie events over the last few years, and I was blown away with the amount of non-traditional “tuxedos” people wore. The majority of men had “tuxedos” with flap pockets, notch lapels, narrow lapels, 2-buttons on single-breasted jackets, and other cringeworthy elements of modern tuxedos. That gray tux certainly will make you one of the best dressed at any black tie event.

I've rarely seen a flannel tux unless it's an EU thing. Almost all tuxes I have seen here in the US at balls and weddings have a satin/sharkskin finish.
