    What do you guys make of those boilersuits? There is a part of me that wants to wear one just to see how much hate it gets. There is another part of me that says "Nah..."

    Do you guys think this coat would be warm enough for a Swedish winter(pretty close to NYC i think)? It's cut quite deep, so I'm worried that my breast will freeze. Obviously I will wear a scarf with it, but is it enough? Maybe I should get a vest and wear under, or is that hard to pull off?

    That coat, like all coats put out by SS, is far too short to offer much warmth. The buttoning point being that low doesn't help either. My advice is to not buy coats from SS. Find something that is less fashion, and more function.

    I have this coat (Vicenza fit) but in charcoal grey. Buttoning point is higher and it's much longer than the model pictures indicate - I have no idea why they style the coats in such a weird way, as it does them no favours. Shame, since it's the best fitting coat I've ever owned. Will post pics sometime in the next few days.

    That being said, it's not a very thick coat - perhaps it won't be warm enough for the kinds of conditions your describing.

    Stockholm based...

    Got that in charcoal from last year and its basically just warm enough for the current Stockholm weather. It's way off looking into winter needs. Not so much due to the cut but it's rather thin and you can't layer underneath it

    I concur, the wool of this entry priced coat is really thin, barely warm.

    I see. Are any of SS's coats warm enough?

    Within SS price range, check Charles Tyrwhitt for overcoats: http://www.ctshirts.com/eu/mens-outerwear/coats/overcoats/

    I got mine there last year. Wool and Cashmere, decent length and covers one chest high enough not to freeze... and hurry because they sell out quite fast, I missed what I wanted 2 years in a row.

    Not for cold winter weather really but that's of course pending what you do and how formal you need/want to look.

    For times when you need to look formal, might go from outdoors to indoors without being able to take it off it naturally work. It's not a Fjällräven down parka for sure
    but then again a completely different style and purpose.

    As background perhaps should be mentioned is that i size the same in their overcoats as in their jackets and consequently will get a rather snug overcoat without possibility to layer anything else.

    I find the cut of some of their DB far more generous btw allowing a bit more underneath. I just returned this one due to being to big but if you look into material it's obviously a bit thicker but still not a winter overcoat for cold weather

    I love SuitSupply - but for the love of god, why does their sizing seem to be wildly inconsistent? I ordered a plain blue Napoli in the same size as my Washington fit - 46R - and the trousers on the Napoli are infinitely slimmer than the Washington. This is totally bizarre as the literature indicates that the Napoli is the most classic fitting suit, and the Washington is the most fashion forward, slim cut of the lot.

    What about the Sienna? Are the shoulders totally unpadded? Does it fit really slim? I'm considering giving it a go, as I like the styling. Thank god the returns process is free...

    That's what I can't stand as well, and even in the same model you'll get a suit that fits differently. I was in store yesterday trying on a Lazio in my normal size and the sleeve length were much too short. One of the sales associates who refused to leave my side wanted to insist I could make it fit even after I said it was too short. He wanted me to rest my hands on my sides in front of him because apparently it will make a difference then when I do that alone. Then after him finally admitting it was short he said it could be lengthened and I just couldn't talk to the guy anymore because he said it would still look good with that big of a gap.

    This was all after I told him I didn't need his help when he couldn't even find a cloth I was originally looking for on their IPad, insisted the cloth he was showing me on the tablet was the one I was talking about or that I was just confused, and I ended up having to pull out my phone and just show him myself. Fortunately this was the first bad experience I had with a sales associate but man I just realized how annoying it can be for someone to listen to fit advice from someone in tight pants and short jackets.

    I assume the sales associates are on commission. I have had good success by explaining to the salesperson that I like to browse by myself and that I will absolutely come and find them when I am ready to checkout. Fortunately the last few times I have gone there I have gotten the same guy, and he knows the deal.

    Chicago store has gone to rubbish, but thankfully I'm told corporate is bringing back some of the original managers to revamp the overall shopping experience.

    I once seen a SA actually try to convince a conservative (assumingly) 50 somethings gentleman that a plaid DB suit would be a good idea. Regardless, I still believe that MTM (non Suitsupply) is a more compelling option when you're already paying $600 plus $100 in alterations.

    Damn that is bold. I can see how I would wear the jacket and waistcoat separately, but not the trousers.

    Thanks I'll try this soon, unluckily I'm a size 32 which is one of the sizes that always seems to be out of stock, especially when I see something I really like (unless it came out very recently) and even then I have to be VERY quick.

    I'm pretty sure at the start of the season a customer service representative on the website chat told me that there weren't going to be any double-breasted camel coats this year, so I decided to buy the brown double-breasted yak wool coat instead, which is quite annoying because I would've definitely kept an eye out if they had given me a heads-up.

    That's fine as it doesn't really get that cold in London (for me at least), I often find with thicker coats I'll end up getting too warm, and if I take the coat off I'll feel cold, so Suitsupply seems to be the right balance for my winter coats for now, and I do really like some of the styles they have.
