Read this whole thread and you'll see a lot of mention of sizes.
Went in to their NYC store today, looking for a tux. I quite liked their selection of suits, the only cut that was acceptable as a Tux was the Washington; apparently they don't have actual tuxes?! The lapel was of a different material, but it still had the ticket pockets and pocket flaps, which is unfortunate because I need a traditional tux, and what they tried to sell me really wasn't one. But I would love to get a suit from them!
Their shirts are also quite nice, not the highest quality in the world, but the fit was excellent. I'm 6' 165 lb, and their extra slim fit 15 was the best fitting RTW dress shirt I've ever tried. Their 14.5 slim fit tux shirt also fit very well, and studs were included in the $99 price.
The midnight blue washington "tux" was priced at $635 or so btw. Very good fit, not quite as perfect as the 36 Boss tux I tried earlier, but still very sharp
did they not have this tux? http://www.suitsupply.com/shop/1.P1109A/Tuxedo?filter_27=736
Looks like one button, peak satin lapel, no flap pockets....
I'm gonna buy one when I'm in NYC.
No luck in my sizes :s very very frustrating! I have to leave the country Monday afternoon, and I need a tux before then, this would have been perfect. I was thinking if the measurements matched the washington I'd just order it online, but unfortunately no luck. Any advice?!
They look good, I'm just a touch nervous about sizing as I've heard the online measurements are a little off.
Unfortunately my advice - look for a tux many weeks/months in advance - is too late. Might have to go to Jos Banks.
Has anyone had any experiences with the linen suit?
It looks great for the price and perfect for the summer months. Shipping is free to Canada as well (yay!). How much can the pants be let out though, I always fit fine for the jacket but the 32 pants might be a touch too tight.
I love the double monks I bought last month in NYC.
Probably 1" to 1.5". Customer service question.
My SC arrived. Very impressed with transit times to Canada, and the complete lack of shipping fees, including brokerage! How refreshing to pay one price, and have it actually be the price.
Quality looks good, packaging is excellent. Nice hanger and bag included with your purchase. Overall satisfaction so far is high.
Now for the fit of the Washington. It is snug. I'm typically a 42L, verging on 43. 6'2", 210lbs. Basically, I'm tall with a big ass. Which is where I'm looking for some opinions on the fit here. I think it looks good through the shoulders, chest and back, however my butt is doing things to the vents I'm not sure I love (bearing in mind, I've left the stitching in the vents in case I decide to return). Does anyone have any experience with tailoring these things... is there any material available in the lower back to let it out some, and provide some relief?
Sorry for the crappy pics... Ms. Mike is away, and I wanted to get these up. Fire away!
Spoiler: Warning: Spoiler!
Those pic's don't do you justice.. need more light and closer pics..also you need to let the vents out.. will never be able to give you an honest assessment with the vents shut.. it looks good in the shoulders though..
Agreed. Although I don't see any creasing or anything in that waist area, its snug but it doesn't look TOO bad.
@ WaterlooMike - what do your other suit jackets and sport coats look like from the same view? Does your arse push out all of them, or just this one?
Yes, I agree on taking pics in better light. Hard to tell.
