    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Here are some pics of my suit that just came in the mail today. Please let me know what you think about the fit! I would appreciate any and all feedback I'll be taking it to a tailor this weekend but I think it fits decently well overall right out of the box. It is a 38L navy napoli and I am 6'2 165lbs. Sorry for the less than stellar quality

    Indentation in sleeveheads - maybe you need to size-down to 36? I would try the smaller size before going to the tailor. Waist and length look good. Nice tie!

    Thanks for the feedback! The only problem with sizing down to a 36 is that there is no long size for that. I feel like the difference between a 38L and 36R would be too drastic.

    Looks like SS just raised prices on some of their suits. Some colors and patterns in the Napoli at least are now at $489 and $499. :censored:

    It's not particularly heavy, I suppose you could wear it at least spring, fall and winter. But it might be too hot for summer, depending on where you live. Overall, I'm very pleased and thankfully there's no poly in the fabric (although there is a bit of linen along with the wool, cashmere and silk) and I think it looks much better in real life than on the website.

    Which suit should I get? I'm doubting between the brown birdseye Soho, the pink Soho and the blue Madison. I could probably wear the brown soho and the blue madison as odd jackets, because of the birdseye fabric and the patch pockets, so they're more versatile. The pink does look very interesting, albeit less versatile. Bear in mind I already own a blue Soho and brown linen Soho.

    Hey there, The jacket is big on you, evidenced further by the vertical lines running down the back of your suit. If you don't want to size down, make sure to point this out to your tailor along with the sleeve issue. You will want a little bit of cuff showing, so make sure to shorten the sleeves a little, just be aware that the functioning buttonholes make this more difficult and potentially expensive if he has to take it up from the shoulder. If you need any more feedback some better lighting and a few close ups of key areas would help us. Kind Regards

Pants look fine and of course need to be shortened so that the break is standard. If you need any more feedback some better lighting and a few close ups of key areas would help us. Sorry, iPad madness with the double post. Kind Regards

    Speaking of the pink soho- can anyone whos seen it describe the color? Is it light grey like on the website or does it have more pink in it?

    Contrary to other posters I don't think it looks big on you (though you shirt does look a little big in the neck). Shorten the pants, shorten the sleeves 1-1.5cm and, if you want, let the tailor remove the rippling on the back. All in all, not too bad for of the rack.

    I agree. I wouldn't judge from the first pic as you've got one arm raised and the wrinkling in the sleeve head is not a divot by my eye. Please see JeffreD's post on this in the Tailor's Tutorials. Divots have to do with too small of a arm hole and trying to fit something too large through it, which introduces a distortion and the dimpling.

    It looks ok in the shoulders in the second pick and if the chest feels ok, then I don't see the fit as an issue chest/shoulders (the suit is a bit rumpled). Lots of the rest can be cleaned up, such as the back, with a good tailor. But honestly, your tailor, if good, will be able to tell you in person definitively about fit.

    See also JeffryD's tutorial on what can be fixed, again in the excellent Tailor's Tutorial thread.

    @Reginald - what the others say is true, sorry if I gave the wrong impression by saying the suit is too big. It's only big in those spots I mentioned, like between your should blades in the back.

    The Boston fit is similar in measurements to the Washington fit. I have tried on both and you can find the exact jacket measurements on the size advisor.
