Remember the Suit Supply London-Style suit?
This is the Sienna-Style, same size:
Am really searching for an excuse to go to NYC to get measured in store so I can buy online.
I'm interested to know what are your favourite suits from the Suit Supply spring/summer 2012 collection?
Went in a couple of weeks ago (the NYC store, which is blowing up around the city) and found the two sales associates I interacted with extremely helpful. They were smart, knew their product, and were able to offer some recommendations. I didn't buy anything, but I definitely plan on going back to get my new suit for the upcoming wedding season blitz. Actually, on my advice, a friend of mine went there to buy a suit and said it was both the most pleasant buying experience he has had in addition to the best fitting suit he's ever owned.
Another, often overlooked aspect for those close to an in-store location (or visiting NYC) is that their tailoring options are legendarily quick and very, very affordable (they quoted me around $30 - $40 to shorten a jacket, which runs around $90 - $100 at my usual place in Manhattan).
In terms of their non-suit items, I'm not a fan of the extreme cutaway collar shirts that they proffer, but many of their shoes appeared to be of high quality (I'm no shoe expert, though).
Highly recommended. All they need now are some double-breasted suits and I'm set.
strangelove, both those suits look really nice on you
@Stranglove - was the selection good?
I'm going on Friday to look for a navy suit. Pretty sure I need a classic fit so i've been looking at Napoli and Sienna on the website.
@robinson: thank you
@zero neck: I don't consider the Napoli to be a classic fit. The higher buttoning point makes it look weird (on me).
The real classic fit is the London. But the Sienna comes pretty close - even though it has hacking pockets and a ticket pocket.
And I really like the Washington fit, but due to its slightly higher buttoning point and high drop it is unwearable for people without a perfectly flat abdomen.
^Thanks, I'll have to check those out.
Just checked on their website and the button does look a little high on the Washington. I assume they don't alter their button placements?
I just ordered and received one of the Napoli suits and am, at first glance, very impressed. I found the 44L to fit generally true to size (ie 44L suitsupply ~= 54L canali in shoulders, chest, and length, though NOT waist). Jacket length is traditional, waist is already quite slim, and pants slim though democratic. Probably will not tailor the jacket at all, maybe very slight sleeve adjustments.
Also, the fast/free shipping and inclusive duty/tax was nice.
What's the button stance like on the Roma range?
How is the armhole height on these things?
Is the armhole lower than average, average, or higher than average?
Slightly higher. Modern.
Edit: see my post below.
Slightly higher. Modern.
Do they have a larger selection of fabrics in store then on there website? Looking to pick something up in the "lazio" fit but dont have a big selection in color. I emailed customer service and they said that this was the next slimmest from the "washington"
Got two london style suits yesterday at suitsupply nyc. Medium gray and navy. Really impressed with the quality - nice selection of suits in alot of sizes and cuts. I know where im getting my next one.
