    sienna vs la spalla should be a matter of personal taste, not a checklist of feature vs price point.

    sienna has slanted pockets which is a no-go for me. and no shoulder expression, which is fine for SC but i like more definition on suit jackets.

    It is bad enough. IMHO, you should avoid it at all costs. I already mentioned earlier these new developments regarding "wool-blend" fabrics. I hope they will not get much customer attention and Suitsupply comes back to its old values for the following seasons. The customer service answer (I got it, too) is salesman BS. ---
    Button stance: Yes, up to an inch below the original placement. I used that and it works. Lapel width: It should be possible. I did not use it and therefore I do not know what limits are in place for this change. Add a ticket pocket: Yes, slanted pockets are possible, too. There are some 60 different changeable measurements, including shoulder changes for different postures. The MTM standard cut from the start is Napoli, that was my choice.. Originally, they offered Roma and London, too, but I have no idea if that is still true now. Best thing with Red Line MTM (the only thing you want, they offer a Blue Line, too, which is in fact more a factory MTO with a few changes afterwards) is the fabric selection. They do not offer their RTW fabrics for MTM, they have the Ariston Napoli fabric lines, instead. Think Isaia/Sartoria Partenopea fabric quality.

    Hey guys in regards to sizing, should I trust the website. A few pages back someone who virtually was the same height and weight said the 34R Napoli fits him well. I followed the sizing guide on the website and they recommend a 36R.

    Which would you recommend I choose (saying this, because i've found sizing guides on websites can be totally useless in determining the right size).

    I would look at the suit measurements that they post online for each of their cuts (you can see them if you go through the size advisor).

    I am 5'10", 145 lb, and usually wear 36R jackets. The SS size advisor also recommended 34R for me, which did fit me better than the 36R in the shoulders. Note that the Napoli cut has wide shoulders: the 34R Napoli has shoulders (17.8") about as wide as the 38R Havana or Sienna (17.7"). However, I had to have the sleeves lengthened and the waist let out a bit.

    Compare the measurements to yourself and then order 2 sizes.

    Seems a little tight. Not terrible generally, but the combination of the large bottom pockets and the waist suppression looks unflattering on you. If you could let the waist out it might be alright. I'd think about sizing up though. Might cause shoulder and sleeve length issues, however...
