1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was. I'd like to keep you abreast of the improvements we've made over the past few days.
    @notification emails have been added, in response to user requests

    Attached images are now Full Size by default

    Users are now all allowed three (3) links in their signature files,

    SSL certification is now in place so you can all browse securely.

    The server has been reconfigured so that site speeds will improve.

    Notice: Right now the site is slow because we are fixing all the images from the past 4 months. Many of you noticed that these were missing, and we are fixing that problem now. Unfortunately, it is taking up a lot of resources and causing the site to be slow.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    The two biggest problems I see are:

    1. The pants seems to be bunching up quite a bit at the bottom and the crotch and waist look too low. Pulling the pants up and securing with a belt might improve things substantially. However, you'll have to determine if the waist fits well.

    2. Some strange wrinkling on the left arm. You don't happen to be wearing one of those monstrously large modern watches, are you?

    Has anyone ever come across an article that discusses Suit Supply's revenue or number of suits sold? I am curious as I have no idea how big they are.

    Haha, yes, Methuselah has awoken, at least temporarily.

    Anything scandalous happened here in the last four years or so? ;)

    I think I will give SuSu another whirl since a few round of Yoox roulette yielded zero results in purchasing a simple blue odd jacket (I rarely wear suits @ work).

    I ordered a Havana before in 38L thinking that it would fit small after reading this thread, and that the specific cut was more fitted.

    The jacket ended up 1 size too big it seems and long (30"+ BOC) and I am 5'9".

    Should I just order a 36 and 38 R this time and see which fit me best?

    I will stick with the Havana as what I can tell it seems to be a good starting odd jacket to wear with trousers.

    The first order was this jacket: http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/jack...start=9&cgid=Jackets&prefn1=color&prefv1=Blue It has a lot more character in person, almost like birdseye fabric / weave and a more robust fabric.

    In lieu of the Havana, what else is generally well received?

    And by chance are all the sleeves now non-working cuffs? I think working button sleeves was one of my biggest hesitation in purchasing SuSu as I would need to have sleeves altered.

    That is actually a very important factor with the susu jackets, find the right sleeve length and go for that size, as they are still working cuffs. I'm a 38L which is fine for me, close to perfect fit without any alterations.

    They must move a serious volume of units, given their rapid expansion. Never read any actual figures. They would be interesting though.

    1. Yeah, I have very stubby legs, so finding anything that fits OTR is a nightmare. The waist is a bit loose but overall a good fit. I'm worried that the pants for the 44R would be too tight.

    2. Nah, hate those things. Not sure I'm wearing a watch at all in the pic.

    Havana Plain Blue in 42L (102). I already have a Havana in 102 (posted on page 474) but the fit between the two feels different, there really is variation between pieces with SS.

    I like the fabric, color and the look in general, except for the sleeves which I believe are two short. Before I decide to go for extending the sleeves, I wanted to get your opinion on the general fit. Also, if I were to extend the sleeves, by how much according to you? Is it a complex/costly procedure?

    Thanks a lot, as usual

    Fit looks good to me and the back pretty much covers your arse. I have long arms too and SS can usually extend about an inch max. I think that might be enough to where the sleeves aren't still too short yet allow your shirt cuffs to peak through.

    Does it feel tight to you? Looks a little tight in the shoulders and body. If you want a trim look, you found it.

    Would this Lazio jacket work as an odd jacket/sports coat? It doesn't have patch pockets, but since it's flannel and heavier, I was thinking flap pockets would be fine.

    When I was in Portugal last week, they appeared on their page. So I'm guessing it's part of their EU-only line (along with Jort).

    Tuck in the the flap pockets and I think it'll work.

    The light brown buttons do help too.

    You need to shorten your shirt sleeves.
