those lapels are plain ridiculous.
I'm not sure if it's the angle upon the picture was taken but the lapels do seem to be a little over the top (no pun intended).
I just got my two Washington cut suits back after tailoring and while there is nothing subtle about peak lapels, the lapels on my suits didnt reach past the top of my shoulders. Also, the lapels on my suit sit flat and nicely against the suit.
I visited the Chicago store yesterday and I tried on various cuts in 38R and here is what I picked up on:
Washington - of course the slimmest fit. This is my favorite cut however it is not intended for some with a wider back or if you hit the gym regularly. Make sure you wear a slim shirt.
Napoli - This is suit is slim as well but certainly much more accessible than the Washington. This is a seems to be good cut for those who wear suits 9-5
Lazio - I tried a on 3-piece suit in this cut I loved how it fit. The Lazio is cut somewhere between the Washington and the Napoli.
Sienna - I like the details and fabric in this cut however I accidentally tried on a 36R instead of a 38R...and it fill well. My advice is go down a size in the Sienna and hopefully they will be able maximize the sleeves length. A 36R fits basically like a 38R in the Washington.
Jort - tried one on in NYC but I didnt even bother in Chicago because I am fully against those pleated shoulders.
I love their customer service and they are very helpful IF** you are looking to actually buy something. Some people have reported the sales rep being standoff-ish which might be true but I personally have not experienced this. What threw me off a little is I guess all the sales reps are capable of pinning up your suit for alterations. Dont get me wrong, all the sales reps I've had have been fully capable of understanding the needs of a well fitting suits and the areas on the suit that need altering.
My biggest concern so far is the durability of the suits. They market their suits as being "lightweight" but that basically translates to "almost cheap feeling".
Overall they are my new goto spots for basic suiting needs. Just don't expect the quality of a $1000 or even a $700 suit.....for $469.
Sorry but I completely disagree on your statement at the end.. I have a bunch of "$1000-$1500" suits and the SS supply suits I have are def comparable.. (ck collections, Paul Smith) .. I have been wearing my two napoli's at least 6 or 7 months times a month for the last half year .. and there is no sign of wear..no shiny fabrics, no rips or tears.. nothing. Most of the $700 suits to $1,000 suits I have purchased are either fused or half canvassed (purchasing full price) and have all the same attributes of a suit supply but three times the price.. some those suits don't even have bermberg linings (some models) or horn buttons (others)... I would say its unfair to compare to a $2000 suit due to the fact of the whole canvassed versus half canvass...but most $1000 suits are not worth the price tag.. more just the name than anything else..
Fair enough and good point. Considering my suits are new I probably should reserve judgement after 6 months or so. I really really do love my 2 Washington suits and once they pass the durability test I will most certainly make Suit Supply my sole provider of suits.....maybe
Their 3 piece suits are looking pretty tasty...
if only they didn't look and fit so weird, I'd pick up a few.
there is SOMETHING off about these things.
To me they just look like they're made for skin and bones. Don't get me wrong they look great and I would love to try a suit from SS but I have a feeling it would be very snug. I have large 'hockey' thighs and I'm sure the pants wouldn't fit. This does look great though:
the suits look nice on their website.
i've yet to see a good looking SS suit in this thread though. They all seem to have a weird cut, lapels damn near on the traps, and strange arm lengths.
I dunno, not in love.
Out of everyone, this to me looked pretty good.
actually, yeah that doesn't look bad, silly peaked lapels aside.
I love how people are making negative comments without actually owning a suit, or having seen one in person. What works for me doesn't work for you, and vice versa. I'm sure that holds true for many facets of life. Next....
wow, why are you so butthurt. If you like your SS suit, then happy day. I think, on average, based on real life user pics, they look odd. If I buy one and change my mind, SF will be the first to know.
Then again, who really cares. If people are happy with their SS stuff, then they shouldn't concern themselves with the internet's opinion.
Re-post a picture of your Napoli cut for discussion. As I recall, you were one of the posters in this thread for whom the cut worked very well.
To each his own... I like my two napoli's.. they fit me quite well and I get compliments on them all the time. But then I am quite tall with broad shoulders and skinny legs for my height so the cut works for me well I feel.
A picture is worth a thousand words.
