Try the Lazio fit (via the custom made program, but select the option to choose every detail yourself).
I have 4 suits in Lazio, and 3 more on the way plus a blazer, and they fit me as good as an OTR garment can, I think. The Havana looks similar on me as it does on you, so I thought perhaps this fit would be better for you as well.

The washington suit doesn't look too bad for an OTR size. However, you have got to do something about your shirt. Get a bigger shirt collar, and tighten your tie. Tiny shirt-collars can worsen collar gaps.

Get something like this:

It will look much more proportional.
Hi Adrianvo,

Thanks for the info! I just spoke with SuSu and they are willing to grant an exception and allow a late return, the customer service from them is beyond exceptional.

Based on my fit pics I should go for a 40R Lazio (versus a 38R)?

Completely agree on the shirt, collar doesn't fit me on that shirt anymore, my neck is thickening with age, but was my only white shirt to try with the suit.

Hugely appreciate your assistance!

Glad to hear! I just wish UPS had equally good customer service. 😂

Hard to say, I'm 5'10.6'' according to Google, and I'm 72kg. That said, 38R fits me really well.

It's like you're in-between sizes. The 38R shoulders definitely look the best though, which is the hardest thing to get right (and fix). The Havana 40R looks too big, in my humble opinion, and the Washington looks a bit fashion-forward (read skinny), but that could be a matter of the Washington's extra slim fit.

Around Black Friday I bought a few 38R suits from the online outlet. After having them sit in the closet since they arrived, unworn and unaltered, and realizing I won't be wearing them anytime soon I'm mentioning here in case anyone is interested for cost plus shipping. I posted a couple pics here back in late Nov. If you're interested shoot me a message.
Dark Grey Lazio (wool/linen blend, 240)
Pink Herringbone Havana (wool, 180)
Light Blue Lazio (3 piece linen, 190)
Navy check Havana (linen, 180)

It looks like your left shoulder is significantly taller than your right shoulder which is partially the cause of some of your collar gap problems. Obviously some jackets fit better than others, but consider that you might be able to improve the fit through alterations by adding or removing padding from one shoulder, which shouldn't be too difficult for a tailor.

Anyone seen the new stretch/selvedge denim options from SuSu? Very interesting, have they offer these before and if so, any opinions on quality and fit? Thanks!

@Marc S These jeans are very slim/tight fitting on the thigh and ankle to the point they qualify as skinny fit. The 32 has only a 6.9” leg opening. If you can’t fit the porto fit, then I wouldn’t bother with the jeans. A few years ago, SuSu offered a more relaxed fit denim option (I believe it was Carson fit), but I’ve only seen those on the Outlet recently.

yeah, they definitely look slim in the product photos!

Hey Adrianvo,

I think you just solved the issue for me, tried the jacket on with a fuller collared shirt and it pretty much masks the issue! Fair to say I'm looking for a semi spread or classic collared shirt? Any suppliers you'd recommend? We're in lockdown here in Ireland for another 6 weeks at least so will be picking up online.

Thanks again, you saved me alot of hassle!

Hi Compuccesory, I can see it now! lol great, at least I have some body dysmorphia now to distract me from the suit issue :) Thanks, i'll make an appointment with a tailor and see if its feasible to alter the jacket. In the interim i'm going to 'mask ' it with a shirt with a lager collar. Thanks for your feedback!

Honestly, I'm a bit weird proportionally so I stick to custom made shirts. I have a thick neck, and it feels like most shirts were made for people with a pencil-thin neck.

I have a bunch of Tailor Store shirts I'm happy with, but I'm probably going to try SuitSupply shirts next time I order a MTM shirt. I've heard good things about Apposta and SuitSupply, but I don't want to pay the extra tax and customs fees if I order from Apposta so I probabl won't do them at first.

Just a little advice when ordering from Tailor Store to save yourself some time with returns while trying to get the shirt right, if you decide to do it:
  • Add about 2 centimeters to the biceps. Some people have complained about ripping the seams when bending the elbow, and although I didn't encounter this problem, the arm was a bit tight on my first shirt. They tend to made the arms a bit too snug.
  • Add 1 cm to the neck for a bit more comfort and estimated shrinkage
  • Be aware of the fabric weight in terms of how thin/heavy you want it.

They have a great return policy either way, and usually always a good discount code available.
