    Kind of annoyed they didn't restock that blue Havana jacket. I haven't found much I actually like from SS since then considering I dislike the entire Washington line and that's the majority of their stock.

    I was looking for a grey linen jacket but ended up with this. What do you guys think of it? Especially the lapels (since i have narrow shoulders)? I'm still deciding if i should keep it.

    Change shirts. Looks bad against your bright yellow skin.

    I don't remember seeing a plain Navy, thought it seems odd they wouldn't offer that since I think a navy suit is the most common thing people buy. I got the Navy pin-stripe in the Pima Cotton and it's very nice. It doesn't crease like cotton suits you'd be used to seeing in the summer. I also got a charcoal pinstripe in a flannel wool. I haven't seen that on the site however.

    I think the lapels look fine IMO. The jacket seems a tad long. Have you tried the same jacket in a short (or R if your in an L). It may suit you better.

    It looks big/long on you. Lapels are good.

    i'm getting it shortened, but that's not the main issue - how big does it look? it's a 35 so i can't size down any more, and i usually prefer a bit of shoulder extension anyway. But is it obviously big in the shoulders?

    It honestly looks a size too big.

    No it doesnt. A smaller size will be too tight in the chest & waist. It's long in the sleeves, obviously, and slightly long in body. The shoulder may be a touch large but acceptable, and we can't easily tell with one photo.

    It's tough to tell with only one photo. The wearer would be best able to tell. If you like it is most important. I think it would look fine once shortened, but you have to be confident wearing it.

    I think shortening it will throw off the balance a little bit..the pockets will seem a lot closer to the bottom.. big risk, but most people will not notice..

    Thats pretty much the one I want. I do not want to order from P&B because I live in Europe and they also do not have long sizes. Normal sizes seem to be comically short.

    Srsly, screw Suitsupply for not making a plain navy (or air force blue) DB!!!! :brick:
