    Yeah, but the sleeves will also be longer, which can be hard to fix, because they have working cuffs.

    I have the Paris blue sport coat. It is definitely a casual jacket. I don't wear it to work, only to dinner or a bar with jeans. It's also one of the smaller fits so size up.



    I wear the regular in the Napoli. I bought a Havana in the regular and it was trendy short, so when I bought a 2nd Havana I got a long. That overall length is good, and I shortened the sleeves. One odd thing is that the sleeve length difference is more than the jacket length difference, as mentioned before. For my experience, because of the functional buttons I could only shorten so far, but I need about another 1/8"-1/4" room to make it perfect.

    Check the measurements. Most of the fits have reasonable length. The model pictures are just usually of 40L guys wearing 38Rs. Also, if you watch the videos, the guy describing them usually models a much more street-reasonable fit.

    It also depends on the cut. I noticed that the London suit jacket is much longer than the Havana for example, and the Sienna is the right length as well.

    Possibly even two sizes down from their usual size in another brand, I'd say, and I don't know if this helps or confuses, but I wonder whether they've also used regular instead of a long jackets in those photos.

    To reiterate my experience from going to the shop in person, I had to size down to a 34 to get the equivalent fit to a 36 in some other slim brands. And the length of the jackets I tried only needed shortening by a small amount, and that was only needed because 34 doesn't come in a Short length. But the sleeve length was fine off the rack, and didn't need further shortening (perhaps because I'm a bit conservative and don't like showing more than a sliver of cuff when standing still, rather than the more fashionable 0.5"+).

    Great review sir! Did you also get your Havana shortened? Because I've always thought that the length of the Havana was impossible to alter due to the seams that are on the rims.

    I think I did. Not by much, mind you (less than on the Napoli). The salesperson didn't seem to think there would be a problem, but I guess the proof will be in the pudding.

    I was just about to post asking if anyone has posted a shot of them wearing this jacket. Maybe I missed it, but didn't see this in any recent pictures. Can someone link me to this post? :)

    It's already doesn't look nice on the screen but even more untasteful (according to SF-MC palate) in person.


    SS really needs more illustrative fabric photos online. (I suggest in different scales and against a swatch backdrop for visual calibration)

    Ok I just received 12 suits in various quantities so that I can post my reviews (after all, return shipping is free!)

    I had an index card with my measurements but I left it at my desk at work so I'll just give you general information on what I have:
    Normal suit size: 36s
    Height: 5'8" ~ 5'8" 1/2
    Weight: 138-143

    Stuff I ordered: 1 Sienna, Copenhagens in regular & small (in 36S & 38S) in a variety of fabrics, Havana, Napoli

    Insights:

    In terms of size (from slimmest): Copenhagen --> Havana --> Napoli --> Sienna

    - As others have mentioned, the sizing does vary even between different model sizes and even within the same model type & same fabric (ie. I ordered 2 copenhagens in the cotton fabric same color same model and they were completely
    - I noticed that some of the newer suiting options are "made in china" whereas some of the other stuff are "made in portugal"... this might be why there's some discrepancy in size
    - Don't listen to the sizing chart unless you're ordering some of their slimmest fits (even with the havana & the copenhagen you could probably be ok with 36s if you're swoll as crap
    - Interestingly, the 36R was slimmer than the 36s (i went with 2 of these suits) and lengthwise there wasn't a HUGE gape in length (maybe about an inch?) also the sleeve lengths for their small and regular are roughly the same
    - It might've been the type of suit that I got, but I felt like their linen suits were very cheaply made... i felt like they wouldn't last long
    - if you decide to buy a suit, order several quantities of it as the sizing between suits are different
