Hopefully there will be a big nice box waiting on my doorstep when I get home today....
hopefully there will be pictures of what is inside that box ;-)
why, of course
So I will just keep returning it until I get the correct one then
Thanks for that bit of info btw chososa
Any photos of those overcoats yet?
Would be totally ok with me.
copped the double breasted suit from park and bond for 300. in size 34(talked to suitsupply and they say its the 35) since that's their lowest size. I haven't bought a new suit in a long time. after losing alot of weight tried on 36 from on of their slim ones at nordstroms and that ran slightly big. hopefully the 35 fits!
fit pics when it comes
It would also be helpful for you to post your measurements:
Weight, height etc...
as promised a few straight out of the box pictures of my latest Suitsupply acquisition. A Lazio winter weight suit and a wool tie. Not sure the tie will get a lot of wear, but I love the suit. The amount of daylight in my part of the world leaves at lot to be desired, but the colours are most accurate in the top photo... Oh, its a Euro 46. I am 180 cm, and weigh around 70-72 kg
Looks good! How would you compare the Lazio fit to the Washington Fit?
I haven't tried the Washington, but I think it is the slimmest suit supply option there is. there are quite a few Washington suits where I like the fabric, but the cut and styling is a bit over the top for me with peak lapes and 2.5 buttons....
So I have the opportunity to get a free Suit Supply suit. I was thinking of going for the Jort (or now La Spalla as they're calling it), but I'm not sure I like the look of the shoulder. I need a grey suit, and the grey birdseye Sienna just seems to look better - I prefer a darker grey and the texture of the cloth seems a bit nicer. As an added bonus the fabric should be a bit more hard wearing on the Sienna.
I know the Jort is supposed to be more luxurious. The description of the Sienna in the video says it is a canvas construction. Does anyone know if it is half or full canvassed. Which of these do you guys prefer?
Last summer, I ordered a grey birdseye Jort and a plain blue Sienna with the intention to keep only one and return the other. The decision was quite easy. The Sienna fits me like a tent, while the Jort is much, much slimmer. Also, I prefer the Jort's very soft spalla camicia shoulder with almost no padding, wich makes the coat much lighter than the Sienna. So my vote goes for the Jort.
But I suggest you to order both, so that you can decide based on the fit. If you don't like one of the items, you can return it without any shipping costs via UPS.
PS: I think Sienna is half canvassed and Jort is full canvassed
Sienna is fully canvased, but the Jort is much lighter as there is next to no padding and the wool is much lighter.
I've tried on both, and while the Jort was a slightly more snug fit than the Sienna - it's no tent, and the Jort is still less slim than the Washington.
Ordered the navy washington SC, it will arrive on Wednesday and is being shipped directly from the motherland (Netherlands)
I can't wait!
