    Yeah I don't bother with Napoli at all for this reason. Stick to Lazio/Sienna/La Spalla for CBD and Havana/Washington for casual.

    I don't and you are right. They are tight but IMHO not too tight, the problem is more the slight belly that I am always fighting. The size of the pants between the navy and my cotton tan suit are BTW different, the cotton ones only had to be shortened whereas these also have to be let out.

    When they are back from the tailor I'll post a pic and kindly ask for your advice.

    Are you saying that Lazio, Sienna and La Spalla are looser on the pants, kind of had the opposite impression. Would have gone for the Sienna but they rarely have that in my suggested size, 23.

    Correct, everything but the Napoli has pants with a large enough thigh allowance to compensate those who have any form of quads.

    Outlet is open, but nothing is available but a single pair of pants and a bag...

    It's pretty weird. It shows a bunch of stuff listed at discounted prices at the bottom of the screen, but when I click on an item, there's nothing there. It's awfully odd for them to reopen the outlet just to sell a pair of green cords and a bag. Seems like they could have just listed two items on the regular site at discounted prices.

    I guess "thigh size" is subjective. The midpoint between knee and waist measures around 21 inches and I find it fine.

    @CousinDonuts Yeah, I'd never purchase from TF lol.

    Same experience here. Also, my Napoli pants are drop 7 as opposed to my La Spalla and Lazio. The waist on the Napoli was just right (if not slightly snug) for me. On the La Spalla and Lazio, I had to have the waist taken in 1 inch or so.

    That's not my experience. Are you saying there is allowance in the side seams at the thighs? Most RTW makers only leave seam allowance in the waist and seat.

    There isn't an allowance in the thighs - what I meant was the thighs are disproportionately tight, compared to how generous the jacket is.

    Did you guys receive an email notification that it had reopened, or did someone just happen to notice that you can get through to the outlet site? I get the "sorry folks, park's closed, the moose out front shoulda told ya" message as of now.

    I'm pretty sure they are planning an outlet and just accidentally flipped a switch.

    Regarding the leg room in trousers for SS suit models:

    Does anyone have any experience with the new "York" fit? As far as I see they've just renamed the fit that was formerly known as "London".
    What is the situation with the leg room in it?

    http://eu.suitsupply.com/en/suits/y...=Suits&prefn1=collection&prefv1=Spring/Summer


    I've bought 4 SS suits when I started working in a bank 3 years ago, and since have gained 25 lbs, mostly in legs (squats lol). The only model that still fits me, size 98, albeit very tightly in trousers, is the Sienna. The Napoli and Lazio trousers are hopeless for me.

    I'm 215 lbs and 6'2. Thinking of going up to size 102 with my next purchase.

    I'm the exact height and weight. I wear lots of Londons, all 42R which I think it's 102. They fit me great in legs and I have big squats also from playing soccer.

    I am curious how York fit 42R correlates with your height and weight... pics would be great!
