    4cm, or 4mm? Four centimeters is over an inch and a half - that's an enormous difference to have from one sleeve to the other. I would demand my money back if a tailor did that to one of my jackets and couldn't fix it.

    If it looks anything like this in person, you'll be fine (Note that he hasn't got any unbuttoned either).

    As for pocket squares on Washington fit suits. Look what their models are doing with their pocket squares. I think a TV fold would suit it best on most occasions, but sometimes you may want something a bit different. Here's a few pics for ideas: (Note: the pics are based on wide peak lapels, so they may not be SuitSupply suits)

    To me, the top picture seems to be the best fold, but don't be afraid to try new stuff.

    It depends on the size of the store. In my experience, I went to the SuitSupply in London Westfield (Pretty small), and it didn't have all the styles & sizes (They had a size 35 Washington fit) which I saw online, though it did stock some items that had either been off the website for a while, or that I've never seen before.

    Yeah - I was in the NYC SoHo store a couple of weeks ago, and they said they're opening in San Francisco "*sometime* in 2014".

    Between the Lazio and Havana suit, which pair of trousers is most accommodating in the seat? Anyone tried emailing or phone call to order suit separates? I may need a 38L jacket but a 40 pant.

    I currently do not own a suit and need one for December & year end events. doh!

    So I spoke with CS and I was told that the tuxedo section will be "replenished shortly". I suppose that could be days, weeks or even months. Hopefully more shawl collar options and not any aviation peak lapels.

    Havana are certainly more accommodating through the whole suit, seat included

    ^Thank you for the comment. The odd jacket in Havan 38L fits me pretty well OTR. So, will stick with that for the suit

    I will contribute..

    For reference, this is the Havana http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/jackets/havana-blue-plain/C689.html?start=3

    I think it looks just a bit nicer online than in person. This is a size 38L. I am 5'9, 155 lb +/-. I think I have a short torso relative to my bottom. Athletic build, hence, the wrinkles in the back around the seat. What you guys think? Go with a 38R or stick with the L? Or go with a 36L.

    (apologize for the poor in door photos)

    I e-mailed SuitSupply customer service to ask how much sleeves and the jacket could be shortened without throwing it off-balance, they replied that sleeves should only be shortened by about 0.75 inches (From the cuff) and the jacket should only be shortened by 1 inch.

    Not sure if that information is of help to you, but it might be to someone else. From what I can see, your jacket length seems to be fine, but the cuffs need to be shortened. The back needs to be cleaned up to make a slight curve (Rather than a dent), and the sides might need to be taken in to give a nice silhouette. Also, I'm not sure about the natural shoulders, but that may be just a matter of opinion.

    You should probably try on a 38R or 36L before you make any alterations though, and see if they are a better fit OTR with no alterations.

    Oh, and I recommend to wear suspenders/braces with suit trousers as they give a nicer drape, even if your pants fit you already.

    Did they raise their prices? I could have sworn the Napoli was $450 before?

    Sizing down will only make things worse. Looks like the back is too long, and your sloping shoulders make things worse; there's a lot of excess fabric collapsing and bunching up over your seat and below your armpits. Not sure you can fix that.

    Some people had said they raised prices for some suits, but the suits I've been watching seem to still be the same prices, however some of them are more expensive than others.

    For example:

    This Soho suit is £349 and is made of Pure Wool.

    While this Soho suit is £329 and is also made of Pure Wool.

    Both are normal pure wool (No S numbers), and from the same mill, same fit, and essentially the same colour. The only real difference is the width and spacing of the stripes.

    Don't know if I am supposed to share it, but I got the code for the outlet through customer care: EARLYACCESS

    Just sharing it here, since I got the link through this forum in the first place :)
