    The product measurements are fairly accurate; for example, they show the vanity sizing on the trousers (38R drop 6 "32" trousers are actually 33.9 inches). The size advisor is BS.

    Had you tried the hatford model? Looks like a high quality lazio model, and the measures are exactly the same as the Jort suits. Just preordered mine, will post my impressions when received it.

    I agree that the jort fits very similar to the havana, but it's more slimmer specially at the waist. Don't forget you can let out the seams at least 2 centimeters each sides.

    I personally really like the jort line, but found the patch pockets to be a little causal in some business environments, that's why i purchased the hatford suit.

    The two Jort herringbone suits from the winter collection are without patch pockets and sadly also without side adjusters

    Do not use the size advisor. Many times it uses your real measurement and not real+measurement +3 inches to recommend the size.

    Once you find your approximate shoulder width, use your real waist or chest measurement and add about 3 inches to get a reasonable fit. When in doubt, order two jackets and keep the best fitting one. Keep in mind that once the shoulder is set it is typically better to go with a slightly looser jacket than tighter jacket if you are going for alterations...

    Hence, pick a certain shoulder measurement tolerance and pick the best size on the table that matches your chest or waist size +- 3 inches.

    I originally hated patch pockets, but after the purchase of a Havana my opinion changed. If paired correctly it can look like more then a casual suit. I agree the patch pockets aren't the best option in every business setting, but they don't make you look as casual as I originally thought. I just love the natural shoulders on a suit and I think the Jort may be perfect for the problem I have with my shoulders.

    Hi guys, I just finished my post on Suitsupply MTM service. The focus was on the information so I spent a significant amount of time with the MTM specialist in London in order to get everything right. Hope that is helpful for everyone considering the made to measure service. I think I covered all the details although if you got any questions just let me know. Cheers.

    Thanks for the article Blue Loafers! Good read!

    *EDIT: I just finished reading the whole article and I had a few extra questions:

    1- did you feel your MTM assistant was pushy torward a more fitted, fashion-tight fit? In other words, had you wanted to have a nice drape and room to breathe, would your advisor argue against it (I've heard it happens a lot in US SuitSuppy stores)?

    2- in the pocket choices you don't mention patch style (unless I didn't notice). Aren't patch pockets available in full MTM service?

    Thanks!

    I like that they offer deeper pleats as an option; they look pretty weak on their RTW trousers.

    Great read blue loafers! Seems like a better deal than the jort or la spalla. Can you chose side adjusters for the trousers in the suit up option?

    BlueLoafers: a big thanks for writing this.

    Edit: Is the price determined by fabric alone, or do some details cost extra?

    1. Hm..hard to tell. The MTM specialist I met - Aaron - is a cutter himself and trained on Savile Row so he was very knowledgable. I haven't ordered anything because that was strickly for the blog post but I would imagine that you can specify at the start that you prefer more loose fit and they would advise you accordingly. Let's say you would not start trying the Copenhagen jacket but maybe Lazio instead.
    2. I am pretty sure I have mentioned them. Yes you can choose patch pockets as well. (paragraph on pocket style; simply try cmd+F or ctrl+F on Windows and type 'patch')

    Agreed!

    Yes, if you decide on trousers without belt loops then you can have side adjusters.

    Thanks, glad you like it. Yes, it is only the fabric. No details are charged extra

    Looks like I took too long to score that Jort, no longer listed. If anyone had anything else in a 34R or 36s, let me know!

    My Spring/Summer 15 Madison (P4206BI) in Mohair/Silk/Linen finally shipped. I'll post pics when it arrives.

    Also, I noticed that a Hudson (P4206I) was added to the US store, which appears to be cut from the exact same fabric. I'm tempted to order it too and send one back. I don't think I want two suits in the same fabric. But I have been dying for a Hudson in a fabric that I like.
