It's batter to go for custom suits.
I tried suitsupplys mtm (assuming you don't mean real bespoke) 3 years ago and they screwed up to the point that they just took it back, bit maybe they have improved as the company evolved. This was in their London west end store.
As far as I know they switched MTM suppliers about half a year ago. Not sure whether that's for the US as well, but you can always ask.
Bought a suit from suitsupply about 2 weeks ago. Needed to use the suit right away from an interview and a presentation on the following dat, so I didn't have time to get it altered. Going back to asia this summer so I won't be able to get it altered until this fall.
Is there a time frame suitsupply has for alterations? (btw I do know they charge for alterations)
Maybe I'm misunderstanding, but you can get the suit altered at any competent tailor; it doesn't have to be a SuSu store. I think they do alterations pretty quickly though.
My uber wrinkled linen Havana after a long day in the office. I really like it, should be okay after a night on the hanger
Adds character. Are they 100% linen? I personally like a linen blend to avoid some of the wrinkles.
Is this the tobacoo brown jacket that was talked about a few spots ago?
Yep, this is it.
The NL outlet has opened (although it states it closes today at 10), though there seem to be some issues with the site. When you enter (the code you need is the usual "EARLYACCESS", by the way), on the bottom end of the homepage, it shows you some suits with their respective prices and the amount of pieces remaining, but when you click on them you are forwarded to a "blank" suits page.
The only truly available pieces seem to be a a blue wool/cashmere cable-knit sweater (€ 49) and some sort of backpack (€ 99). I also checked the US outlet, but it seems to be closed.
I signed up to their NL outlet newsletter in order to be let known when it opened, but I didn't get an email from SuSu, so this may as well be a trial run, who knows.
I just got redirected to the U.S. outlet site, which is closed.
Change shipping to the netherlands and then reenter the site.
How does one actually enter? When I try to go to suitsupply.com/outlet, I always get redirected to the home page.
You can enter the site the poster was referring to by changing your shipping location to Netherlands and then changing the URL to outlet. there's literally nothing more than what the op described in there though.
