    It has slightly more waist suppression and a more pronounced shirt shoulder construction with even less padding than Sienna with a 3 roll 2 button configuration and notch lapels.

    These aren't my shoulders, I'm owning several Sienna models, but not a Jort. It's a Suitsupply tumblr picture.

    Shirt shoulders on jackets are not to anyone's taste, it's a casual detail which most people are not accustomed to. The amount of visible puckering is dependent on the weight of the fabric, with a heavier one than in this example it will be barely noticeable.

    I was able to stop in the London Store on Vigo Street very briefly last week. This was a short London jaunt with family members who had never been there, so our tourist time was maximized and shopping was minimized. Anyway I was able to try on a couple of Washington jackets - slimmer off the rack than the Napoli, but shoulder width seemed consistent between the models that I tried on. The layout was nice and the staff was helpful. I wound up buying 3 ties. Their ties haven't been talked about on this board so I'll throw out a couple of initial observations. They are each 3in/8cm wide at the bottom. They are more on the thin side, similar to what you'd find with a Ferragamo tie. The tag says made in italy. I played around with different knots and find them to be neither tiny nor a Merril Hodge behemoth, pretty much right down the middle. It dimples nicely.

    Their ties are nice. Thanks for bringing that up. I bought some that ended up being returned b/c the colors were not as expected. They are a step up from J Crew and a step below Polo.

    I'm also quite satisfied with my three ties. They dimple very nicely and are of an ok quality. I would really like to hear what people make of their shoes and shirts. I know the shoes aren't EG standard, but some of the models are quite tempting considering that I'll probably only wear them a few times over the summer period. Don't want to spend big bucks on something that won't be a staple...

    I don't like their shoes. I have never found anything acceptable for me, they seem to be some kind of an afterthought. Their shirts are mostly too fashionable and too slim for me (maybe I'm getting old :embar: :)).

    I do like their ties though, some of them are great stuff and they have many more interesting tie designs in their brick&mortar shops than online.

    I bought a pair of their shoes. While the leather isn't the thickest, and you can see a small bit of grain, the shoes are fantastic. They have a 270 degree construction with leather soles. They break in very nicely, and I find them comfortable all day. I've never been complimented more on my shoes more than with these. I think there are better options for basics (e.g. captoes, etc) from AE, To Boot, and Ferragamo. However, the hard to find styles in monk straps, loafers and such are hard to beat. I would definitely buy another pair from them. I feel that their price point reflects where they stand in the market - Above $200 Cole Haan's, Slightly below $350 AEs.

    Was looking at the monk straps. $250 for suit supply shoes? Are you serious?

    Without knowing who makes them it's tough to judge a shoe's price-value point. If they are made by Hush Puppies then this is too expensive. If they are made by Lobb then it is the bargain of the century.

    Not sure if it's been mentioned in this thread or not, but SS is opening up a huge DC store in Georgetown late July. :nodding:

    I really like this chino blazer from the first page, its exactly what I'm looking for and the OP bought it for only $150. Realizing its from last summer, but do they carry this in store this season? I don't see a chino blazer on the website.

    Finally went to NYC this weekend and got down to the store.

    I'm 6'1" 180lbs for reference.

    The Napoli 38r fit me in the shoulders and length. The sleeves were a bit short, but have 3/4" that can be lengthened and that will work. the 38l looked too long in the jacket length, but the sleeves were fine.

    38r also for the Sienna.

    40r for the Jort as the 38r was way too tight in the jacket. $999 for the Jort didn't seem worth the money when the Napoli is only $469.

    Didn't buy anything in store, but am placing my order online now that I'm back home for a 38r Napoli in navy.

    Very nice customer service.

    I like this place.

    I've tried on the Napoli for $469 and Jort for $999. The sizing/fit of the two isn't too far apart, with the Jort being slightly more trim. I THINK the Jort is fully canvassed where the Napoli is half, and there is a noticeable upgrade in some of the materials for the Jort. For some reason the Jort doesn't even appear on the website. I'm 6-1 and about 160 and the 38 R fits very well except for as usual too long sleeves. Watch out as they have surgeons' cuffs which will limit how much you can shorten. The trousers fit perfectly - can't remember if they were unfinished or just very long to give you the option of shortening and/or creating turnups.

    I also noticed some variance among the fit of some Napoli suit jackets I tried on, which for the budget-minded should be borne in mind in order to assess the additional cost of alterations, especially for those ordering online.

    I don't like their website much and they have a much broader selection in the shop. If you see something you like you should jump on it as they get new stock in all the time and don't have sustained 'lines' in terms of materials and colours, they tend to do shorter seasonal runs. Some of the materials I saw there a couple of months ago weren't there last week.

    Still, even their cheaper Napoli suit is better made IMO and has a much better variety of colours and materials than say J Crew which are similarly priced or maybe even more expensive at retail. BTW I asked the SA and they don't do sales. They plan to move their old stock to the new store in DC to make room for new stock in NYC.

    Hope this was helpful to the prospective SS customer.
