I mean Euro sizes.
@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?
Looks great! Do you mind telling me how tall you are? Long arms? No adjustment to the sleeve length?
Quote:Thanks mate! I am 6'0" and 175lbs athletic build. I have slightly longer arms than the "average" but I personally like a little more shirt cuff showing so no adjustments on the sleeves. I'm a 30/31 waist but I have bigger athletic thighs yet the pants on the Havana fit very well off the rack. I just needed the waist taken about an inch. I also own two Washington cuts and oddly enough I had to do more alterations and slimming on those suits than the Havana. There was collar gap, the sleeves were way to short, and the jacket needed much more waist suppression than the Havana. Hope this helps.
Thanks CousinDonuts. That's what I'm going to do, take advantage of their's free returns&refunds.
What do you guys think about this jacket?
What do you want to know specifically?
