    I think that the ticket pocket on the Sienna prevents it from being a truly conservative suit, unfortunately. I bought one of those but sent it back for the London because I think it is a more conservative style and fit

    I still don't understand why the don't get us more options in the London here in the states. I love that cut.

    I tried the London on and really liked it. The high buttoning point on most other models did not seem flattering on me. I don't remember trying a Sienna, but then again I just walked into SS to kill time. I'm not really worried about CBD conservative, I just need something solid & dark that won't look out-of-style when the "slim fit" fad runs its course.


    Does the Sienna have an open lapel buttonhole?

    I think the currently trending silhouette is quite goofy. natural shoulders but (sometimes overly) slim fit, in the arms especially, and significant waist suppression just feels dissonant. not even talking about the length here. I feel that natural shoulders work with a more relaxed sort of cut.

    I've been badgering suitsupply customer service reps with this exact complaint repeatedly. The Sienna's shoulders are AMAZING and incredibly unique,.particularly in a city like NYC where "napoli" cut style shoulders are essentially the standard and very boring. They look so good (at least on my generally "wide-shoulder" athletic build).

    Should we start a petition for either:
    1) Creating a version of the Sienna with normal flap pockets (and no ticket pocket)
    OR
    2) Including the Sienna in the MTM program (currently only Napoli and London shoulder are offered)


    The holy grail of off-the-rack suiting is when a maker uses a conservative CUT, but then presses forward with more edgy fabrics. When you combine a fashion-forward cut AND fashion-forward "edgy" fabrics, it ends up just looking cheap and tacky. When you balance the cut and the fabric better, it has a much higher chance of becoming your favorite suit, both modern and timeless.

    But to date, I don't know of a single suit manufacturer that "gets this" -- so close for suitsupply...so close...

    Yes, the Sienna has nicer fabrics and hand attached shoulders, which really make a difference. I work in one of the most conservative sectors in the most conservative city, and I can tell you that literally no one gives a shit about whether your suit has a ticket pocket or not. They've got more important things on their mind. Sometimes SF over-thinks things.

    Maybe no one will comment on your ticket pocket, but they will see it eventually and will think "what a little dandy". That alone actually wouldn't be an issue if it weren't for the hacking pockets as well. Both those combined make you look like a try-too-hard.

    Haha, no they won't think that, let alone even notice it. People are much too self involved and busy to spend time thinking about another man's extra pocket.

    Will the lowered prices for the Soho, Copenhagen, and Boston jackets extend to any other jackets i.e. is there any history of it? That $149 price tag is mighty enticing, but I have no need for a double-breasted jacket, and I agree with timo about the Copenhagen. What happens to seasonal inventory that does not sell--they just get shipped to the Euro outlets?

    Actually, this is the first time I saw a price drop on either the Suitsupply web-shop or the brick&mortar-store.
    Usually their old (not-basic-staple) stuff goes to the outlets or is kept in the usual stores until it sells out.
    I wrote them an email recently to get a suit from 3 seasons ago and they found it in one of their stores and will send it to me. I will have to pay full retail price, though.

    IMHO, I quite liked the system with no price drops. Sure, you cannot get a deal, but you have the security that the item you just bought will cost less than 50% the next day or so.

    I ordered that Copenhagen jacket and it's actually not the Copenhagen fit but the Paris fit. I can't find anything about that fit on the Suitsupply site, but I remember seeing that fit in the past. Maybe it's a discontinued line or something.

    The prices are pretty low anyway compared to many brands. Having said that, I quite like that they're not actively advertising the reductions you spotted as an official sale.

    It might look like a low buttoning point. I'm around 179-180 cm and the jacket is a 42. Probably looks even lower because my jeans and trousers have got quite a high rise.

    That's me haha. In what way am I copying his fit? And this shirt is just a random OTR shirt - 'Any similarities are purely coincidental' haha!
