    I think Suitsupplys pants cut is always a bit off. When the jacket fits nicely, pants most of the time are not...

    Good to know. I'd love to try a SS suit, but I kind of want to wait until the Toronto store opens up so I can try them in person.

    I think this has been covered somewhere in the previous 100+ pages of this thread, but can anyone explain the difference between the Napoli and Sienna fits and whether the Sienna is worth the ~$200 premium? Thanks

    If you go to the website, there is a short video with the major differences between the two. The Sienna is a super 130's wool, with less shoulder padding and a ticket pocket. It also fits a bit slimmer as well. The Napoli is a 110's wool I am not well versed enough to know the major difference in quality although I am sure there is. I will let others comment on that.

    If you're ever interested, I have a 40R Napoli that you can check out.

    Suitsupply do a pretty good job of explaining the different cuts on their site. As to the premium, well, ypu get nicer fabrics, lots of lovely details that only you will notice. You should ultimately buy the suit that fits you best. if that is the Napoli, good for you and your wallet. if it is the Sienna, spend that little bit extra. You will probably save it on the alterations bill anyway.

    Pretty sure the Napoli is half canvas construction where as the Sienna is full canvas construction.

    The Sienna is half-canvas -- the only full-canvas model in their RTW line is the Jort/La Spalla. The Sienna has hand-set shoulders & collar.

    The Sienna has more hand made details.. the shoulders are handmade and set as well as the sleeves..the canvas as well is stitched by hand.. what this does is that it allows the jacket to conform to your body a lot better..you will not find any half canvass suit mass produced that has hand work.. most are machine worked like the Napoli. In terms of fit the shoulders are narrower and the armholes a little higher with a lowered button stance then the Napoli. Funny enough out of my two Napoli's, my gray one has pretty high armholes and the other lowered armholes.. not as low as some of the stuff you see out there but still lowered than expected..The pants are pretty slim.. I'm lucky I have stick legs for my size.. anything beyond stick legs and waist will not fit in the pants I think. hand-work will always require more money in my mind as well..I have some full canvassed suits that have no handwork in them (Canali). All machine work if that gives you an idea.

    Thanks for the run down, appreciate it. I love my blue pinstripe Napoli, but I think any narrower in the shoulders and it just wouldn't work out well. I already had to size up to 36W pants for a 40R jacket because the legs are fairly slim. SS makes great suits for the price, but for guys with athletic bodies or bigger thighs, it isn't the best choice unless you take the Napoli and exchange the pants which you can only do on two models I believe. I think my next suit will be Kent Wang's MTM for a little more, full canvased and a little better in terms of fit.

    Still looking at the outwear though. I really like the navy 'Field Jacket'.

    I agree about Suit Supply's pants fitting a bit weird. I have a Jort and Napoli. For the Napoli (supposedly the loosest fit they have), I had to have the jacket taken in slightly, but the pants fit VERY snug. For the Jort, (supposedly slimmer than the Napoli), I had to have the jacket let out, but the fit on the pants was great. It doesn't make any sense to me.

    Suitsupply. That is what I was told when I purchased my last Napoli 6 months ago and what I was again told today by Suitsupply New York. The Sienna is a full canvas construction suit, according to them, the La Spalla line has more detail and hand work especially in the shoulder and of course has the finer wool.

    Feel free to call them and double check what they told me.

    Thanks for the offer. I suspect that my first SS suit will be a Napoli, but I think that would be a little short for me. Judging by the measurements on the SS website, I would probably need a 40L or 42L (I typically take a 42L in most fits). I'd really want to try it on in person before ordering, though, which is why I may just wait until the Yorkville location opens up.

    I was told the complete opposite when I purchased my jort from soho store. Jort only full canvas construction suit otr. You can have full canvas on mtm sienna. I was not interested as then it is in the price of the jort which fits nicely with minimal alterations. If you look at fit info for siena no mention of full canvas construction other than "canvas construction" on the video. Jort /spalla has it written full canvas construction on the fit info.

    +1 on this. As far as I know, the Jort is full canvas. Sienna being full canvas is too good to be true, given the price.

    what are some slimmer cuts? is there something similar to the Washington, but with notched lapels?

    also, does anyone know of other suit brands that would fit a tall, very slim figure around the same price point?

    None of the Suitsupply cuts are boxy, but Washington is probably the slimmest based on the feedback in this thread. I own several Lazios, a Havana and a Sienna. Of those Havana is probably the slimmest. I am boderline skinny at 6´0 and 156 Lbs and all three ft med pretty well straight out of the box.
