    Haven't got any feedback yet from the tailor thread. But I think the shoulders are fine. I had a SuitSupply MTM SC made with size 94 shoulders and they weren't altered either. Yep, it covers my arse.

    Will take em to a tailor tomorrow and see what they say. Thanks for your input, I hope I don't have to return all of them.

    Any other thoughts? I can't figure it out.

    Give up on the Washington cut. Shoulders are too wide and it doesn't seem to work for you in other areas. Chest seems a bit tight, arms are skinny etc

    I'm afraid you suffer from the same issues I have with many SS suits...if you have a fairly muscular chest/upper body, the fabric between the armhole and center chest is lacking which results in a constant pulling look in the center which letting the jacket out won't completely solve. If you look at the space between your arm and the lapel, you will notice the tugging especially when putting the jacket on. You could try their MTM program. I did that and though I don't hate it, I have moved on to dealing with Proper Suit. SS in general doesn't deal well with the Athletic/Sloping Shoulder build. Hope that helps.

    I just bought a Napoli Navy in 36S. The pants fit pretty snug especially in the waist. I noticed what seemed to be a tear in the waist but don't know if that is normal or not. Here is a picture of what I am talking about:

    It's normal. It's gives more room when sitting down.

    Well, I pulled the trigger on a Washington after going to the store in Philly. The Napoli just didn't work for me. Even the long wasn't long enough in the arms. The Havana fit great, but it doesn't come in solids. The London was beautiful, but out of my budget for now. The Washington fit the bill, and they'll have the one I want next week, probably Tuesday. Will post pics when I get it.

    Interesting enough is the fact that the 42R in London fits me perfectly! But the 42R in Washington is just too tight. 44R could work overall but my biggest concern is def the shoulders.

    I looked at Proper Suit but their button stance seem to be very high and their peak lapels look weird.

    The great thing about them is that it is completely MTM so you would book an appointment...getting there you can adjust anything you want...I definitely let them know I like a lower button stance and it came out near perfect.

    Hey guys,

    I've been recently looking into something for either hot summer or a good allrounder from jackets division.
    I came across these models:
    http://eu.suitsupply.com/en/jackets...ackets&prefn1=collection&prefv1=Spring/Summer

    http://eu.suitsupply.com/en/jackets...737.html?start=36&cgid=Jackets&start=30&sz=30

    and I've been wondering whether any of you had anything to do with any of them? I live in Poland and don't have a chance of poping into one of SS' shops and trying them on so it's gonna have to be a blind guess pretty much.
    I am a blonde guy (not Swedish blond type, but blonde anyway), so I figured that blue is the color to go for, but I also like this model: http://eu.suitsupply.com/en/jackets...ackets&prefn1=collection&prefv1=Spring/Summer.


    The problem I have with linen is that it looks pretty dirtishly with all these folds everywhere and I have no idea how to keep it fairly presentable. However since it's a summer jacket it wouldnt have to be that straight. Though it would have to be paired with a linen shirt and all I've got is pure, classic cotton.
    I am also bulking up since a month and intend to gain some muscles (chest, bicep, legs mostly) and I dont know whether it'd be best to wait these couple of months before buying or go for it right now.

    I'm not aware of a model name. When I purchased it at the Chicago store, I went online and could not find it. Perhaps it was a model sold only the store? Here is the information from the order:


    Washington Blue Check
    Fit Washington
    Color Blue
    Fabric Wool Blend by Leomaster (It)
    Design Check
    Line Purple Line
    Product code P3686I24
