    Gagliardi are good if you are like 150 cm's tall. They jackets are amazingly short, and the trousers run very, very slim. Basically a fashion suit, although they are admittedly well made. I bought one last summer and regretted it.

    Finally got my two Madison's today. Picked them up at the border. After fees, taxes and currency conversion, didn't really "save" much at outlet prices. Came out to almost regular price. Anyways. I'm disappointed between the two. QC is awful. The two jackets fit VERY differently. One suit jacket has a major collar gap issue while the other does not. To top off the bad luck, I'll need to have the sleeves shortened if I want to wear one of them in public. Not gonna be easy with SuSu's functional buttons...

    Shortening sleeves is not a problem with functioning buttons. It just means that the gap between the jacket cuff to the first button hole will be shorter. But in my experience, they already run long, so shortening by .5-.75 inches is fine. Generally, you want to leave about 1.25" between the cuff edge and the first button hole.

    I was looking into add a charcoal grey suit in my wardrobe. I don't have a grey suit yet. Also, I prefer a darker one over light grey anyways.

    I never purchased or tried on Napoli. (Only have Lazio and Hudson) How do you guys like the fit? Also, is this a nice charcoal grey colour you would recommend to your friends? or is it too dark to be a grey suit?

    (btw, the suit is this season's pre-order item)

    I bought the same size in both and that worked for me.

    Did prices go up in other regions? Noticed some of the suit and jacket prices seemed higher but bags have definitely jumped up noticably

    Wore mine today too. I may let out the waist a little but otherwise pretty great fit OTR. It's a great jacket.

    38R. I may sell one or both, but I'd be selling them to recoup my money, so the cost will be higher than if you purchased them directly from the outlet. Fair warning.

    The cost of shortening the sleeves and maybe doing further tailoring is gonna cost me. Isn't sleeves around $75?

    Sorry but I'm not with the people who buy from the outlet and then sell for higher prices,it's you're right if you want,but it is also my right to reject such debauchery

    If you read my post you'll see I crossed the border, picked up the suits and brought them into Canada. I've paid NY+Ontario tax + currency conversion. You're welcome to do what you want, but please, do read.

    Good to know. I'm always worried about working with a tailor and not having a number to work with.

    Shortening from the sleeve is inexpensive. But if the sleeve is very long, the jacket will have to be shortened from the shoulder because of those stupid functioning buttonholes. In that case, be prepared to pay a lot more.

    Why would it require shortening from the shoulder? They would just cut the excess fabric to prevent from overlapping over the button holes, no?

    In any event, shortening from the shoulder costs me $45.


    Separately, what do you guys think of the new s/s waistcoats?

    I buy a larger size (50L instead of 48L EU) because of the longer length and lower button stance. The sleeves on a 50L are way too long for my T-rex arms, so they have to be shortened from the shoulder.

    My local tailor charges €80. It's considerably more expensive than having SuSu do it, but at least I can be assured of end result. I learned that lesson the hard way.

    I have an athletic build and almost exclusively wear Napoli's. I love them--great value and they fit me OTR almost perfectly in a 44L. I have a couple Sienna's in 42L but the Napoli is my workhouse suit. I love mine in dark grey and wear light grey, navy, and a navy pinstripe weekly as well.

    If you normally wear the Hudson and Lazio, you may find Napoli's cut a bit more conservative than you're used to.

    He doesn't appear to be someone who bought several items with intent to flip them. Seems to me he bought them with intent to wear and it just didn't work out. Recouping his cost is entirely different than flipping them for profit. Certainly you don't have to buy them from him but debauchery doesn't really seem to be the case here.

    Overlapping over the button holes isn't the issue, the issue is if it is too long and you cut from the bottom you could conceivably cut so far that the functioning button holes are either too close to the cuff or actually get cut into. In order to preserve the button holes and make the jacket work you would need to take the excess fabric from the top which is far more costly than taking it from the bottom. It also requires more skill and can result in the jacket ultimately not fitting despite the alteration. Unless you are very confident in your tailor, it is probably something you want to try to avoid.

    The new waistcoats look pretty good to me. I may pick up 2-3.
