    I do not tie tight knots and I always reverse-tie to get them off. I keep them folded and do not hang them.

    Despite this, my two tie purchases from the outlet have stretched to the point where they are barely wearable.

    Better off saving your money for a Sam Hober or a Drake sale

    Or maybe suitsupply's first quality non-outlet ties are different, I have not bought one yet so I don't know

    I've only owned one SuSu tie (bought at full price), and it was thoroughly mediocre. It didn't stay in my closet for long.

    There are plenty of better options that don't break the bank, especially if you buy in sales season.

    They definitely have different suppliers for different patterns. I have 3 and each one is different in construction and quality of silk. One of the them ties like nothing else, more so than the much higher end ones I have, but the rest are above average, fairly priced, run of the mill.

    Guys, question about Suitsupply's trouser rise. I'm a newbie to all of this so forgive me if it's a stupid question. Is their trouser rise considered low, medium, or high? Reason I ask is because I'm having that annoying issue where the triangle of shirt keeps peaking through below the fastening button & I was wondering if that was related directly to trouser rise.

    And of course the only Biella jacket in Pre-Order is $639...

    I still don't understand SS logic by not offering more of this style in other fabrics.

    The rise is low to medium, depending on the fit you purchased.

    I have a Lazio & a Napoli. Is there a difference? To me it doesn't seem so.

    Between those? You'd have to check the measurements on the web or take them yourself. This is, like, pretty easy to do with measuring tape or something as clumsy as a ruler.

    Alternatively, if your shirt keeps on coming untucked, consider that your shirt might be too short? My nicer dress shirts are generally longer than my cheap ones.

    Yup. Could be the shirt. I noticed that suitsupply's two ply dress shirts are shorter on the sides compared to their other shirts, such that they become exposed more easily if I make larger movements. I avoid their two ply shirts now as a result.

    Yikes. In Europe it's only €399.

    I have a Napoli in Regular and Long sizes. The long size has a higher rise than the regular size.

    The conversions on the products in the states versus the European pricing is nuts.

    USD is pretty much a rip off on SuSu. It's not a rip off compared to the many crappy brands we get in Trump-o-land (j/k), but knowing what they charge in EU means a no no for me. I've only purchased through the outlet.

    If it's any consolation, Europeans get ripped off in plenty of other ways.

    Yeah, it sucks that we're charged more in the US, but it wasn't long ago that the EUR was much stronger compared to the USD.

    And even with the uplift, I find it hard to find something of similar quality for the same price point. Do you guys know of other brands of similar quality at the same price point?

    Spier & Mackay. Half-canvassed construction, suits are around $300 USD with the exchange rate. I've also heard some good things about gagliardi.

    Thanks. I'll check them out. Do they have fabrics sourced from renown mills? Or more generally, would you say that the fabrics that they use are of comparable quality to those of SS?

    Spier & Mackay uses S110's Australian Merino Wool, which imo is comparable to the fabrics used for SS's blue line suits.
