I am a 40L in most jackets, 40R in the trousers, and 38R in waistcoats, if anyone in EU wants to unload...

I may have some lightly worn jackets/suits in 40L I can let go for a small price.

I am probably late on this but the Nordstrom Rack website has about a bakers dozen different SuitSupply suits for ~50% off. Debating getting one and there are free returns until February 7 so I might pull the trigger…

Does anyone know why all their black tux fabrics are gone in the configurator? I'm visiting them tomorrow to get measured for an mtm tux. I guess they have them available in store...

I went to the Stuttgart store this weekend and was supremely disappointed; the MTM “specialist” told me he would prefer I came back in the week as his colleague is better than him at it. I live over 2 hours away, and have my entire configuration saved. I simply needed the MTM adjustments made.

Obviously, I walked out.

I've noticed, all three fabrics are gone. The VBC 260gr was gone at the end of October, and the Reda 235gr a week or two ago. Disastrous to be out of proper tuxedo fabrics around this time of year...😕 The cotton one was removed a few days ago, but a cotton tuxedo is out of the question. Cotton won't hold dark colors well at all, especially around the seams.

Anyone know anything about a potential "refill" in the designer? Fabrics in general actually... This fall has been a massive disappointment in terms of selection.

Indeed. That adds insult to my aforementioned injury (who is a drama-queen?), as my black tie config can't even be specced. As @A-Lawson says, it's not great to be out of these fabrics at this time of year.

The supply chain crunch must be hitting them hard ... are you in an urgent need of a tuxedo? If you’re in the U.S., perhaps email Divij.com. They might be able to do remote fittings and get you an MTM tux quickly.

I'm in Germany, and it's not urgent at all, really. I just decided that is what I would finally get this year, and went into town for a fitting (see above post) and now the fabrics are out. I'll wait. I've no black tie events planned this year, anyway. I just want my first dinner jacket.

On an unrelated note, one of the staff tried to upsell me buttons when i took my jacket in to be adjusted. She claimed that all the buttons on my garment were ruined, after being dry-cleaned. I explained that I haven't had it dry cleaned, but she was adamant that the iron had melted the buttons. I said I would look into it, and not to wait for her to source new buttons etc.

I just checked my casual jackets; and two of them have the exact same buttons, and same for my tweed waistcoat, which I bought new and has never been dry cleaned. I think that is just how these "casual" buttons look, no?

It finished off an extremely bizarre visit to SuitSupply.

Wow, she must simply not be knowledgeable about this particular line of buttons that was phased out about 5 years ago. I have about 3 jackets with these. They do indeed look strange to a person unfamiliar with their look as they might come across as damaged on one side as per your photo.
