    I would suggest you venture to other places as well, given your build I"m not sure the euro-italiano look is going to work. Try J Press, Paul Stuart or even Brooks Bros.

    Talk to Tyler in there - very agreeable bloke who will give you the time you need to make up your mind and won't hard-sell you. At that size you may have some difficulty as Suitsupply leans towards the slim in most of theit fits but you might get lucky.

    Ya, with KW around I would only go with SS if 1) trying to save ~$200 (IMO somewhat shortsighted given suit's lifetime) or 2) you particularly love a distinctive styling of a SS suit. I'm not sure I can get anything in the London style, which to me is almost a poor man's Tom Ford, through KW (or anywhere else for under $1k). I do like the SS stuff I have, though.

    The advantage of SS, for those of us who live near one, is being able to get fitted in person

    and this is often worth the price of a suit alone.

    Recently stopped by suit supply in Soho and their suits are great.....best of all no one was pushy or snobby (a hint many other store clerks could use)

    The lazio and Washington lines really stuck out to me

    I think he's looking at the pics 400 Degreez posted. Admittedly, his shoulders have quite a few issues; don't think I have seen those as much on yours.

    I forgot to mention that Kent Wang is having a trunk show in NY soon so that could potentially level the playing field

    Yeah, I don't have that advantage unfortunately. I like suitsupply and the stylings/offerings. I've ordered from the site, and i've just had too many issues with the consistency of sizing even within the same fits. I prefer suitsupply for any of their suits that are sub-500, but beyond that price point i think there's too much value in kw when put side to side

    I'm 6-0, 230 lbs and I recently purchased a size 46R in the dark grey Napoli. It fit me with no problems.

    Suitsupply starts with their S (short) sizes from 48 till 60.
    Good to know it that the shorts sizes are actually a bit larger than the normal sizes (so a 48S is the almost the same size as a 50 but than shorter).
    The Havana model is quiet fitted and a little shorter, I actually like this fit very much (It does have patch pockets, might be too informal, but that depends on the job).
    You should probably avoid the Washington which is quiet long and fitted (with peak lapels).
    The most formal models are: The London, Lazio, Napoli.
    The trousers probably need shortening, however, this often only takes a day.

    I hope this helps and good luck on you new job.


    P.S. You should probably avoid the Sevilla model. This model is a bit cheaper but the make of the suit is not really good.

    Fit check, pretty bad photo I realize that now that I'm looking at it, I'll upload some back/side shots once I get my camera back.

    That looks like a great fit. Shoulders may be the slightest big, but overall impeccable. Good for you!

    You can give post 1568 on page 105 a look. Not exactly this color or fabric, but same fit.

    Definitely fitted. The length, as I found out with the Havana model, lends itself more towards a casual setting. If you need it for work, might want to get a longer size.

    Hey guys, question about fit. My little brother just graduated and got his first job, and I want to buy him a decent suit. He's on the shorter side withan athletic build, will these work for him? I know ss tends to work well for tall athletic, but not sure about short athletic. I think he's probably around 5'5-5'6 and 135 ish pounds. He was big into sports so he's like a size 41 chest. Recommendations on cuts I should have him try? I read the fit discussion a few pages back, seems like lazios might work. Open to suggestions so I don't waste time shipping back and forth.

    @ f-tard: I think the Napoli is the most accomodating fit. I own only Lazio and Havanas, and they are both pretty slim in the chest. the Havana moreso than Lazio. But buying online is always a bit of a gamble, so if you want to rule out returns for certain, I suggest you go somewhere else with your brother in the real world...

    are the lapels grosgrain or satin? What size did you go with? What is your size in other brands? Thanks!
