    Hey guys,

    I'm having some difficulties with choosing the right size for me. I ordered Sienna suit as advised by Size Advisor in size 48, then 50 (both were to small). Now i ordered size 98 and 102.

    102:

    Could you guys help me out? Pants obviously need some work, but my main concern is jacket.

    I actually bought this suit for similar reasons. I sent it back as I thought the bird's eye pattern was way too pronounced. The pattern is larger than I expected so its very visible even from a distance and didn't look grey so much as black and white spots, in my opinion. To me, it would be too distracting. The pictures on their website are actually very true to life and accurate, so I really shouldn't have been surprised.

    Nah I wouldn't say so, if anything my shoulders go slightly beyond the jacket ones, but it's minimal, it is really is flush.

    Thanks a lot for the feedback, I appreciate. I think I'll keep it, my experience trying out OTR suit tells me I'm very unlikely to find a better fitting one at that price.

    That is unfortunate, but thank you for the heads up!

    Size 98 jacket fits better, but the pants look way too tight.

    I don,t agree it's to tight. Better take the 102 and use a good tailor.

    I disagree too, those shoulders are far too narrow. Better off buying the 102 and making any needed adjustments (waist, sleeves, etc.)

    I am with them, size 98 is tight. Having a suit altered is not that big of a deal in the end and the results you get can are worth it.

    hey all,

    completely new to suit supply and ive been browsing through the pages (50 pages so far) but I haven't found a DIRECT answer related to my question...

    Can suit supply work for short guys?
    -Barefoot, im 5'8 (173-174cm)
    -I'm fairly built, not too skinny not big/fat, just slim with broad shoulders

    Are there any specific fits that someone of my height should stay away from?

    Just from a quick glance, the ones i'm really liking are:

    http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/washington-grey-stripe/P3933I.html?start=20&cgid=Suits
    http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/sienna-light-grey-stripe/P3718I.html?start=49&cgid=Suits
    http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/suits/havana-grey-check/P3863.html?start=87&cgid=Suits&start=78&sz=78

    Of course ill have to see them in person to see how well they match the photos though...

    Thanks ahead for any suggestions!

    On a good day, I am barely 5' 7 1/2" :D
    I have a Havana, a Washington, a Napoli, a tuxedo, and a Lazio--all in the "short" size. They all work for me.
    I'm not sure what you mean by "broad shoulders" as to whether or not that would be a factor.
    Going to a SuSu store, if possible, is the best way to find out. Good luck!

    I only brought up shoulders because the models in the photos all seem to be at least 6'0 tall with wide shoulders... im a newb [​IMG]
    but its good to hear that my height shouldn't be too much of a factor!

    I prefer a slim fitting cut without looking too bulky is all

    Has SS lowered the buttoning points on Havana at some point in the last few years.

    I have an older model and the buttoning point is obscenely high, but I tried on a jacket at the store and it was perfect.

    Also, these two Havana's, one from Spring and the other from Fall, look like they may have very different buttoning points.

    I hope they have, it's either that or poor quality control.

    The quarters also look more open on the fall one, looks better!

    If it's like the Lazio in blue birds eye (http://eu.suitsupply.com/de_DE/suits/lazio-blau-birds-eye-muster/P3675.html?vpid=P367504) it's way too warm for summer. And for me it looks quite comparable. But I think a few pages back someone had that suit or at least tried it.

    Look at the product measurements and you'll see the difference in shoulder sizes.



    I thought that the newer Havana lines were a little lower as well.

    Hey guys. First time ordering off SuSu. I'm looking to get this Washington Half Lined. But I'm not to sure about the fitting. Here are my measurements:

    Hight 187cm (6'2")

    Chest 94cm (37inch)

    Belly 84cm (33inch)

    lower 94cm (37inch)

    One member described the measurment calculator as giving you a ballcrushingly tight fit. I'm looking for a smart slim fit but nothing tight and restricting. I'm a little intimidated making such a body specific purchase online. The Washington Half is a more contemporary fit so I'm not sure if I should size up or down. And guidance would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

    Hey guys,

    was wondering what everyone thought about the Havana Navy Plain as a go-to navy blazer. I'm on a limited budget (graduating college) and will work in a fairly casual office environment. I'm also considering the Howard Yount 4 seasons blazer, and Brooks Brothers offerings, and would love feedback, thoughts, and suggestions.

    Also, to add to my last post, what about the comprable hudson?
