    At your size and shape, this looks pretty good.

    To most of the folks observing this thread:

    For every size you go above about a 36, you're basically going to need more and more tailoring to get a fit that is even close to what this gent has pictured here...ESP with a brand like suitsupply. Their brand is deliberately positioned to cater to the uber (did I just write "uber"???!!!!) slim fitted almost built like a child size (not to be insulting)
    Suit supply has great cuts but at the end of the day if you''ve got issues on your body that make it tough to fit into RTW clothes, you're going to have a problem with any and every brand you try on no matter what size you are. If you have prominent seat, for instance, you may also have a little bit of anterior pelvic tilt or sway back. If that's the case, an entire slew of adjustments really need to be made to fix your clothes in any RTW state. That's when you make a decision on whether or not to pursue MTM for the money it would cost in alterations for the potentially mediocre result provided. It's not so linear that you can just have stuff let out for prominent seat. All kinds of other issues may develop. If you don't know what's goin on with your body, contact a tailor and you'll soon know....if he's good that is.

    This response is 50% self promotion. Shamelessly.

    How did I start trolling the suitsupply thread!?!?

    I prefer the left one for the shape. The jacket in the picture on the right has no shape whatsoever.. speaking strictly from looking at the pictures of course. :slayer:

    Also, it looks like the one on the right might have the collar gap symptom.

    That's not entirely true. I wear a 40/50, and the Soho cut needed no tailoring whatsoever. It fit perfectly off the rack, and I'm certainly not built like a child.

    Does SS make a traditional navy sportcoat?

    You're right. The right one is unlined so I have noticed that it doesn't hang with the same shape as a more constructed jacket.

    Ya that's looking a bit short there. I am about 5'11 and around 180lbs with a steep drop. Chest about 42, waist around 33 with square shoulders.

    where does it say its unconstructed?

    also the model could just be wearing a short model. just because all the models on the site are wearing short jackets as part of suits does not make the suits non traditional. if you size the jacket for yourself properly, there should be no reason you can't get a traditional looking navy blazer.

    I had to get the long-version of the Havana (40L) at 183cm height.
    The regular is cut way too short. Same goes for the Soho for me.

    If you watch the video of the model explaining the Havana fit (near the top right of the screen, under Havana Navy Plain $399) he says, "It is a totally unconstructed jacket. It holds minimal canvas inside..."

    As for whether he is wearing a short version for a more "in" look...wouldn't that make the sleeves too short on him? Unless he had them lengthened from the shoulder or is wearing a MTM version of the jacket? Don't get me wrong..I'm not saying that you can't look traditional in Suitsupply's stuff. I have the Seinna suit and I'd feel comfortable wearing it to an interview. Ideally, it would be like an inch longer, but I'm still happy with it. The reason I'm thinking all of this through is that I'm also in the market for a new navy jacket but I don't have the option of trying a "long" since I'm the elusive 34 chest.

    All of time and space, everything that ever was or
    I have that navy Havana and love it. Almost a perfect fit off the rack, but I did size up as they run really slim.

    I've been reading the thread but I may have missed it, but how blue is the blue plain Washington? I suddenly need a suit for work and that one caught my eye and they have my size (34r)

    I've regularly seen two plain blue Washingtons on the site.

    This one http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit...art=3&cgid=Suits&prefn1=fit&prefv1=Washington

    And this one: http://us.suitsupply.com/suits/suit...art=1&cgid=Suits&prefn1=fit&prefv1=Washington
    (not currently available, but it's left before and come back)

    I own the second, and I'm pleased in every way. The color is almost identical to the up close image shown of the buttons, rather than the model picture. I was concerned about the color based on the model picture but it ended up being exactly what I wanted, very work/interview appropriate. I thought I saw earlier on this thread that there really isn't much shine on the first plain blue Washington in real life.

    What is the slimmest cut suit that SuitSupply has to offer?
