    A few questions, if I may:

    How is the padding on the shoulders? Are the armholes high? How was the length for you? Do you know if the wool ones have the same fit?

    I second that. Am also interested in the fit of the coats. I think they are sized weird though.

    Example: the size 44R has a 19,4" shoulder width and 24,4" chest width measurement (asked for the measurements from customer service). Now, 24,4" chest width for 44R sounds reasonable, but not at 19,4" shoulder width.

    I have some suits at 19,1" shoulder width (size 40") so I guess I should purchase the size 44R suitsupply coat if I intend to fit the suit under the coat. But 24,4" chest width... come on.

    Updated Recap of Q's about the coat, if someone decides to answer:


    How is the padding on the shoulders?
    Are the armholes high?
    How was the length for you?
    What are the fit differences between the cashmere vs wool coats?
    From online, it looks like the wool coats are unlined, at least at the back-- can you confirm?

    The green Havana on the website looks pretty nice . Also, the brown herringbone Milano - but for some reason I can't click into that one to detail. All the link does is refresh the main jackets page. Annoying.

    The blue Havana with the Prince of Wales-esque pattern has been my favorite that I've seen on the site. Pretty annoyed I never bought it. Seemed like good value at $300.

    Not much padding, armholes were high like the rest of the suit jackets, length seemed appropriate for the size I tried on, I only tried on the cashmere. It was super soft and felt like top of the line quality. Great modern fit/styling which can be hard to find in an overcoat.

    Just curious. I am 5'6 188 I usually wear a size 40R in suits like Hugo Boss the Pasolini fit and 42R in the James/Sharp fit. For the most part I usually wear a 40R with alterations to the sleeves. I am wondering should I get a 42S in suit supply suits. I wear a 16.5 32/33 dress shirt. Any assistance is welcomed.

    at 5"6', you wear a 40r?

    Seems to me like that would be far too long.

    I am 6'0" and about 180-185lbs. I wear a 42R in Boss James/Sharp. In SuitSupply I'm a 40R.

    For someone who's 5'6", it really depends on what cut you get. When you go online, look for the suit fits that say "shorter jacket". Those are the ones you should go for. If I can remember correctly, Washington and Napoli are longer jackets and the Sienna I believe is a shorter jacket.

    Personally, I'm a fan of Sienna (very slim fit, but unfortunately has a ticket pocket) and Napoli (conservative notch-lapel and no ticket pocket BUT it's a bit "roomier" cut).

    They didn't have the Sevilla ($399) fit in the store in a 40R (from what I saw), but I'm interested in that one as well (wide notch lapel and no ticket pocket = Good).

    I think I need a 42S in slimmer suits and 40R for the suits with shorter jackets.

    SS has a whole host of measurements on their jackets online. Click on the what's my size, then look at the tabs available. You can sort by short, regular, and long.

    Just know that the "slimmest" suit is the Washington fit, and it has a characteristically LONG jacket. So, you really need to go by "shorter jacket" fits. It doesn't always go hand-in-hand, "slim fit" AND "short jacket".

    Thanks. Was it warm? Were they as close fitting as their suits, or did they have enough room to fit a jacket in the same size?
