    Thanks for the insight. So in other words when you buy a suit from SuitSupply, say this, http://www.suitsupply.com/grey-suit-washington/P2505W,en_US,pd.html?start=3&cgid=Suits its pretty much like going to Macys and buying a suit off the rack? Except that these suits are easier to tailor? So if I were to buy a Suit, I would still have to get it taiolored to a certain point, is that extra with Suitsupply? Also what is the slimmest fit? I am looking for something more fashion forward.

    Any suit that isnt MTM is going to require some sort tailoring for the best fit. I can't vouch for Macy's process since I've never bought a suit there however with Suit Supply you have sales reps and tailors who are trained to work specifically on their own suits. Alterations cost extra and even with the Washington Fit, which is their slimmest fit, I still had to get a few things altered.

    If you haven't gotten a chance browse back through few pages on this topic and a lot of your questions will be answered.

    Cheers

    The good thing about Suitsupply is that you have measurements on their site...

    A size 94 (which is basically a 38L) is :

    SIZE 94
    SHOULDER 45 cm
    CHEST 106 cm
    UPPER WAIST 92 cm
    SLEEVE 65.5 cm
    BACK LENGTH 80 cm
    WAIST TROUSER 84 cm
    FOOT WIDTH 20.3 cm

    In that same order, a 40L would be (size 98) 46, 110, 96, 66.4, 81, 88, 20.8.

    This is obviously too big. When looking at your pictures, it seems as if the jacket's shoulders are falling off your own. Just look at the WAYWRN thread and compare your fit with those of the renown posters and you will realise that your suit is too big. Go a size smaller.

    I think you are similar to me. I'm 5'6, generally fitting a size 36 in shoulder/length but with a 38" chest (which means the suit needs to measure 40"). I work out frequently so I am slim but athletic.

    I've come to the conclusion that SS cuts their 'Short' jackets for 'Short and Round' individuals.

    Therefore, when a 36 is too small and a 38 is too long, they put us in a 44, which is just silly.

    For me unfortunately it will be a matter of settling on only 1 or 2 cuts - a cut that has shoulder/chest that fits, the shortest cut jackets and hope the sleeve is not too long. LOL.

    It is uber-aggressive for most circles. Maybe you could wear it to an art gallery opening, in NYC, LA, Amsterdam. paris, etc. Not Des Moines or Waco.

    It's too big. The shoulders are off and a Washington cut is supposedly slim then something is off with the sizing.

    It's a casual summer suit in an urban context. You don't need an opportunity for it, just wear it after work and at weekends in the city. The problem is that the concept of a casual suit is not widely known anymore outside of SF circles, especially in the US. You should expect to be looked at but then that's the point of wearing a loud windowpane suit in the first place. :)

    I'm about to order the Napoli suit in Navy, but I had a question for you guys:

    I'm 5'6, 37 inch chest and 32 inch waist. Do you think I'd be better served with a 38S or a 36R?

    Ideally I'd be a 36S but they don't have that size. Maybe I'll pick up both and see. Any suggestions?

    Id wear it as a sportcoat, but not a suit, too much going on. Unfortunately I feel that way about a lot of the SS suits, at least the loud ones.

    Hey, I came across your post and have had the same problem with the chest. You may have you hips too far forward with respect to your back. This makes your chest hit the jacket too high. Here's a couple exercises to try to open up your hips:





    Good luck.
