    I don't actually want it. Like you, I was just confused by the seemingly contradictory design and styling.
    That Asian model usually looks good in the pictures, especially in double-breasted jackets and coats that flatter his diminutive waist. When even he can't pull this off, I probably couldn't. Or maybe it's the stylists who are to blame.

    The blue one looked great in the store. Fabric is a very nice hue and texture.


    Also someone had mentioned those grey check pants- they appear to be more of a suit trouser than chino cut. Rise looked about the same (at a glance in the store. Didn't measure or anything).

    Holdfast, went to SS to pick up my suit today (which is gorgeous!), and I checked for you, but they have not received the pink Soho yet.

    Thanks for looking! If no-one else gets to see it by the time I get round to ordering, I'll probably just take a chance.

    Which suit did you get?

    As well as the pink one (if it's more grey than pink), I'm almost certain to get this one too. While I'd prefer it with cream instead of ochre stripes, I think it should still work well with fairly conservative/businessy outfits. Ideally, I'd like to sell the Loro Piana jacket in my sig first, though, as I'm trying to keep to a one-in/one-out policy. Might have to list something else up as well, if I don't get takers on the LP.

    Oh man, you're selling that jacket? That's too bad, it was awesome. That DB suit is very nice, but I'd take a look at this one too: http://eu.suitsupply.com/suits/suit...gid=Suits&prefn1=fitID&prefv1=Double Breasted I saw it from up close and was pleasantly surprised by the fabric.

    I got the beige DB vest lazio, the fabric is truly amazing, very nice and soft S130s. The fit was great too, and I like the added touch and warmth of the vest. It's certainly a late autumn/winter suit. I had the waist taken in a bit, and added cuffs on the trousers, it fits very well though. The lining is a dark red wine color, which goes very well with the suit. You really have to see it in person in order appreciate its awesomeness though, none of the pictures do it justice.

    Just don't get the suit.

    @HF That really is a shame, seen as the lazio has some of the nicest fabrics this season. I can't wait until I receive my Meermin MTO austerity boots, as they'll be perfect for this suit, together with a cashmere tie. You know how some suits just make you feel good while you're wearing them? This is one of them.

    I haven't tried on the Madison, but the salesperson was wearing it, and it looks very similar to the soho. It's not exactly electric blue in real life, but it is a special fabric, unlike anything i've ever seen before. I'm seriously considering getting it, and I already have way too many SS suits. It definitely stands out, so you have to like that, but then again, a pinstripe DB suit might stand out even more.

    I think the blue madison might be a little more versatile than the pinstripe one, the fabric is more casual and it has patch pockets, so you can wear it for more occasions, but it's less suitable for CBD. I have the soho blue plain myself, a fantastic color, which actually might be your best choice in terms of versatility, suitable for both business and leisure wear.

    Btw, if you look at the campaign images and scroll down a bit, you'll see a very nice checked soho, which might be worth waiting for: http://eu.suitsupply.com/Fall-Winter-Overview/Fall_Winter_Campaign,en_GB,pg.html

    Agreed on the Lazio fabrics; there are several suits I'd consider in that range if they fit me better. The chalkstripe DB is bold - bolder than the Madison, probably, as you say - but I want a bold suit in my wardrobe, and I'm considering selling the very bold dark grey POW DB I own as the lapels have always been a bit skimpy for me. The navy chalkstripe would neatly fill that niche in my wardrobe.

    In terms of the one in the campaign, isn't that this one? I'm not really feeling it, to be honest. Something about the fabric weight/look/colour just feels a little off to me. Not sure what, exactly...
