Experiences may vary - as always. Sizing up would not be an option for me as they already are too wide in the waist rendering the side adjusters useless and the unpleasing proportions would be even more exaggerated.

I have attached a couple of photos below. I have somewhat muscular thighs and therefore a slightly larger seat. The cut of these trousers exaggerates these enormously, making the upper half of my legs look like blocks of wood - there simply is too much taper for my body. My legs and seat are not comically large as these trousers make them seem like.

Good post thanks for the pics. Unfortunately if you are not super tall and super slim, you can often forget about trying suit supply trousers. I’m 6ft2 and 175 lbs and still find the taper is ridiculous.
however, i really need to try them on as sometimes I’m pleasantly surprised.
on that note, I’m looking for casual pants for this summer preferably linen. I see they have this Ames collection with drawstring which would fill my needs. Anyone have experience with them? Find price a little steep at 199usd...

At least 6 months. I got a new custom made suit and my custom made specialist suggest I wear it for a few months, even 6 months, and bring it back after I've had a chance to feel out the suit. There might not be a time limit at all.
wierd Thing happened to me. I dropped a suit to be tailored around February, the store closed for pandemic reasons but reopened in March. in April went to pick them up, didnt have time to try them on in store, when I arrived home and tried them on later noticed they didn’t do anything... maybe it got lost In the todo pile... im sure they’ll have it in their system, customer experience is great at susu but this explanation and conversation will feel a tad absurd!

Haha! I bet it was a deja vu feeling—“I’m pretty sure I had this altered, but ... it looks and feels exactly the same.” Agreed that their customer service is amazing and I feel like the store staff will make this right. Good luck!

Definitely looks too tight around the seat and down the legs.

Perhaps you should try to Long instead of the Regular. The upper size may be more spacious.

Also, maybe the model just doesnt work for you. I've heard others saying SS trousers ruin everything for them, but havent seen it in person before.

Yup, this fit simply does not suit me, and I really do not see much point in experimenting with sizes - but your advice may definitely help those who do not have such extreme issues with the fit! The Bolzano fit was a lot better for me, but I tend to not buy ready-to-wear from Suitsupply - everything is much better from the custom made programme. If Braddon and their ready-to-wear trousers work for others, then by all means: go for it! It is all about one of the main mantras of this forum: your milage may vary! So many exclamation marks - why am I yelling?

They just opened a store in NYC. Anyone been? How's the quality/fit?
they are good for the price. They have really nice fabrics and nice colors away from the regular dark blue and grey you see in American stores but bear in mind it’s not CORNELIANI etc level but also not at that price point either. Nice for everyday wear with a fresh look in my opinion. Pant legs are slim which I hate but you can have custom made at slightly more which is well worth it.

I like that you responded to an 10 year old question!
... which calls for a celebration of sorts! My oldest purchase from them is about 6 years old now when it was new but I also picked up some items on eBay over the years that date back to like 2010-2011. Happy to report that I don't have anything torn, faded, or worn out but I am very careful and YMMV obviously.

I wonder if the original NYC store will do any kind of commemorative event?

events are not a big thing, these days... maybe their recent marketing shoot is to celebrate their old cringey ads? :p

Ten years as a store and as a thread! Quite an accomplishment. My oldest suit from SuitSupply is around 6 years old, circa 2014. Navy VBC S110, in the York fit. It’s going strong—and for a while, it was my only suit. Definitely abused the heck out of it, so speaks to their build quality.

The York is still my favorite fit. I have two more, and they are custom, but I feel like they made the chest/generally everything too tight on them. The York is more roomy. Still, great company and products. To 10 more years!

I would think the goodwill generated by allowing alterations forever more than offsets the very small proportion that will wait more than a couple months to get final adjustments.

I love that you are replying to the post made 10 years ago! But, then, you have every right to!
haha, I didn’t look at the date however the comment remains valid with respect to suitsupply. I frequent Europe and the Netherlands where they originated so I didn’t even know they were in the states. . Alas NYC has degraded to one of its lowest points due to its leadership.

I figure this is a long shot - does anyone have a yellow casentino overcoat in a 44 or 46 they’re looking to part ways with?

Honestly, gentlemen, if y'all need any Suitsupply accessories - sunglasses, gloves, belts, suspenders -- the first day of last two outlets these can be had for like 75%. I really went to town in this category last time, and these items are great value at this price point. So, wait for the, most likely, July outlet if you need these.
