Yes, I'd personally go for the other one.
I just received the new Lazio plain blue suit from SS.
When I tried it on, it felt a bit tight, so I checked out the measurements both from suit advisor from the suit page itself and from the bottom of the main suit landing page, and discovered that they have TWO DIFFERENT measurements for the same Lazio size of 40S!!!
FWIW, the measurements from the suit itself are more accurate.
See below...Click to enlarge.
I thought I could just get the pants hemmed but now I need to let out the jacket and trouser waist as well.
I want one of these bad boys so bad http://us.suitsupply.com/en_US/jack...l?start=2&cgid=Jackets&prefn1=size&prefv1=36S
But sadly Havana is one of the only jacket cuts SS makes the short sizes for fat people (waist is larger in S than R). If it wasn't for the working buttonholes I could go R. gggrrrrrr! 2 inches in the waist is quite a bit and I'm not sure if I want to take the effort and money to get it taken in.
The first jacket is beautiful, but the new higher price for the sport coats seems unreasonable. For $30 more I can get a two-piece Havana?
Both models are sold out in 36/46 already.... Will just have to wait for a re-stock or a light grey flannel Lazio ( fingers crossed)
Oh, nice. I'm probably getting that in a couple of weeks. Pants aren't really tight on me since I need 106. So I always have to take in the pants anyway, or I did on the La Spalla suit I bought.
I tried on the Hudson 38R in store last night (Chicago). It fits me quite well, reminding me of the Lazio fit. I think that might be my next purchase rather than the Blue Plain Lazio. Also their new F/W coats while they are soft and drape well, they are thinner than I thought. They seem to be made more for layering than actual warmth which is a shame based on how much the coats cost.
I've always thought of the Hudson as being the casual version of the Lazio, due to the patch pockets.
The pleated shoulders are just a nice added bonus!
Problem for we SF people is that it's a million discussions being held by the same 50 people. Until SS sees a massive drop in volume I seriously doubt they change it.
If you buy either of these please take pics. My eye can't get past the fuzziness of the online pictures. It's like I'm looking at burlap.
Napoli plain grey. 42r. Just back from the tailors, only had the pants hemmed & cuffed.
There are two models with that name. Is it the £259 or £299 one?
42R? EU website? May I kindly ask you your measures? I'm about to pull the trigger on one, size advisor says I'd be a 44, but I think 44 will be very tight in the trousers...
Has anyone successfully shortened the sleeves of a SS jacket? Is it a very complicated and difficult procedure, if not, are most tailors able to do it?
Yes, I've had the SuitSupply in-store tailors shorten the sleeves (not from the shoulder) successfully for £18.50 on my Washington suit jacket.
Not sure how non-SuSu tailors would feel about it, or what prices they'd charge, but £18.50 is very reasonable for a working cuff sleeve alteration.
