    I may be at the new york store in the next few days as well if anyone needs anything checked out. Would be happy to post pictures of any items in question.

    Would be very nice if you could check either:

    http://eu.suitsupply.com/jackets/jacket-brown-check-havana-c682/C682,en,pd.html?start=5&cgid=Jackets

    http://eu.suitsupply.com/jackets/jacket-blue-plain-havana-c701/C701,en,pd.html?start=11&cgid=Jackets

    or

    http://eu.suitsupply.com/jackets/ja...na-c691/C691,en,pd.html?start=19&cgid=Jackets

    If it's not too much of a trouble that is (assuming they carry them in the US of course). Would especially like to know what they mean by "wool-blend" in the first jacket. :)

    I have 4 suitsupply ties. 1 is 3 1/4" wide and the others are 3 1/8". They are all 59 1/2" long. I put them in the ok category. They are on the thinner side which doesn't bother me personally. However, my main complaint is that I must tighten them frequently during the day, moreso than other brands.

    I have Kiton ties that I have to tighten frequently during the day, so that's not a good measure of quality. I agree the SS ties are ok though, nothing special, except for their new wool/cashmere knits, which are very nice.

    this one sir, if possible to know the shoulder width for 40 and 42... but I would think that bringing a measuring tape inside will be awkward...

    Regarding their ties I have a similar feeling, there were some nice examples in their current summer collection (wool/linen etc.).

    But on a general level I'm actually not so sure about that anymore. In the preview section for the new F/W collection I can see for the first time ever several items where synthetic fibers are used in the fabrics. They bashfully call it "Wool Blend" and take serious money for it. Sure, there are again many other beautiful things to see and buy but in my book this is not stepping up the game.

    Spoke with SS Customer care and they stated that the full fall line will be available for shipment by the end of the week. Hopefully new styles are added. I can't deal with all the Havana fit sportscoats

    None of the ties I looked at at the store had poly in them. Wool blend isn't necessarily a bad thing, the knit tie I bought is advertised as a wool blend as well, but it's a 70/30 mix of wool/cashmere. Even then, poly isn't all bad. I have a drakes tie that's a mix of cotton, silk and a little bit of poly. Apparently they did it because it was the only way to get that specific effect. Anyway, you know which ones have synthetic fibers in them, so you can just avoid them. In general, SS has stepped up their tie game.

    There are 19 jackets showcased within the jacket tab. Out of those 19, one is a "wool blend". How do you know what the blend actually is? SS has stepped their game up, they run an EDLP model and 95% of their stuff is very nice, especially for the $. I've got no horse in this RACE as I'm having my latest suits done by Panta, but I do own many items from SS and they all rock. A small amount of items that may be a blend does not take away from the fact that 95% of the stuff is branded fabric from respected mills.

    If anyone needs anything I literally live two block from the SOHO store.

    Does anybody know when the summer items get removed from the website?

    ah thanks. didn't occur to me to check other SOHOs. I was thinking of getting an L but they aren't actually overly short like the other cuts...? though not as conservative as London

    In Europe there are more coats and at least one suit tagged as wool blend, perhaps it is not visible yet in the US online store. How do I know? SuSu customer service confirmed it. They are actually wool/polyamide blends.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm a great fan and loyal buyer of Suitsupply for years, mainly using their Red Line MTM service now. But this is a clear sign of slowly introduced cost-cutting with reduced quality. I am perfectly aware that raw fabrics get more expensive and that Suitsupply needs substantially more fabrics for the US market expansion. But that can't be an excuse for such short cuts. I would recommend to avoid these "wool blends" so that the management understands that this is not the way to go in the next years.

    Of course the selection of suits, jackets and coats with fairly good fabrics from renowned producers is still there and lots of them, I don't want to call for a boycott. :) But it's definitely time to think about where this label is going to and to set a clear borderline what is acceptable and what is not for a regular customer.

    The discounted SOHO turned up today and this being my first double breasted jacket I was wondering if perhaps the length was just a tad bit too long? Its a 36R so no shorter length available. I know timotune prefers his jackets slightly longer but not a 100% on the length so thought I would ask. Would appreciate your thoughts on the jacket.



    *Apologies for the shoes, just what I had on at the time

    This second image I feel shows the length the best..

    Looks great, enjoy your jacket! I'd suggest wearing it with light to medium grey trousers though, something like this:
