    Thank you all for your honest feedbeack, it is much appreciated.

    I will keep the long one. The sleeves might be a hair long after shortening them, but hopefully not too much.

    Just returned from suitsupply -- highly recommend working with Jennifer if I visit Madison ave store. Although the sienna is great, the spalla was an AMAZING fit and higher armhole, trim sides made all the difference

    They charge for alterations??

    Hi guys,

    I'm from Portugal and there are no SuitSupply stores in here so I've to buy it online.
    I've been looking the website's suit sizes/recommendations. Nevertheless, since most of you say that those sizes/recommended sizes are not reliable, it would be very useful if someone with similar body dimensions as I could advise me on the proper size.
    Since I use suits everyday, I'm looking for wool suits, particularly Napoli, York and Washington blue models.

    I am:
    180 cm height
    100 cm chest
    90 cm upper waist
    88 cm lower waist

    Thanks a lot

    What suit size do you normally take in other brands, and is that size tight or loose?

    Overall, my suits are 46, on the slim side. I was tempted to buy a 46 or 48 of suitsupply...

    Euro or USA sizes? Because if USA size 46 or 48 would be quite big based on the measurements you provided. For the record, I'm 6' 245lbs and wear SuitSupply 48R in USA sizes.

    Ah, just re-read your original post and saw you're from Portugal. Euro sizes then. Sorry, can't help you mate.

    @Cousteau, if you have room on your credit card, I would order multiple sizes and send back what doesn't work.

    In my experience, the sizes on the chart are pretty accurate. It's the size advisor that is weird. I wear a US38 in most of their stuff with an occasional 40, and the size advisor tells me a 42 or 44. I would compare your measurements to the charts and order accordingly.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but which suitsupply store is better (in terms of service): SoHo or Madision Ave?

    Havana Houndstooth Linen Size 38R. I had the waist taken in, the pants hemmed and tapered, and the jacket slimmed just slightly from the back center seam rather than the sides. Button stance does not bother me at all.

    The thing I found troubling with SS linens (maybe all linens do so, I wouldn't know), is that it pulls. A lot. I got a Havana jacket in blue linen, and it pulls around the elbows and lats. So to anyone getting anything in linen from SS - beware of pulling and possible tearing as a result. Wool is much more durable in that regard. Especially if you are athletically built and have some tightness around your arms and back.

    I can't seem to get a reply in the Tailor's thread, but so I'll try here. I'm taking the York Plain Blue to the tailor, and I'd love some comments before I do so. In particular on:

    - Sleeve length
    - Is there collar gap? It's not obvious, but it doesn't hug my shirt either
    - Waist suppression
    - Anything else you can think of

    The arms are wrinkled in the pictures, but not when standing normally, so I don't think I have to rotate the sleeve heads.
    Pants are too tight in the waist and seat, and have to be let out as well.

    Can't see well enough to comment on collar gap. I might lengthen the sleeves a quarter to half an inch, but I don't think they look egregious as is. I would not suppress the waist any further as you already have a bit of pulling going on at the button and wrinkling at the lower back. Biggest issue is the seat. No pun intended. As I'm sure you're aware, the tailor will need to let that out probably as much as the fabric will allow.

    Saw these trousers on the website but the style is sold out and I couldn't see the details, anyone happen to know the name of the color?

    Thanks![​IMG]

    Looks great! Do you mind telling me how tall you are? Long arms? No adjustment to the sleeve length?

    Thanks!
