    I'm just going by what I was told by a sales associate over the phone and what they put on their website..

    " The hand tailoring and craftsmanship involved in creating the Sienna afford it a level comfort and attention to detail that can only be obtained by the most skilled craftsman. The Sienna features a Neapolitan shoulder which the Italians call the spalla camicia (in English known as the shirt shoulder, meaning the shoulder falls like a shirt). These shoulders hold minimal padding, making for a natural shoulder that is softer and lighter than in English inspired suits. The lack of padding might result in slight shirring at the sleeve head. The Sienna is distinguished by handmade details such as handset soft sleeve, underarm sousbras and a handmade canvas collar for maximum comfort and fit. Other features include horn buttons, special red Bemberg lining and a front ticket pocket. "

    I'll take them at their word right now.. they could be lying but oh well...

    They aren't lying, but they are forcing in ambiguous way the use of the terms "hand" and "handmade" as it's sadly common today in clothing business

    The machines are always guided by the hands of the workers.
    A sleeve is handset also in 1$ jacket as padding, canvas are set in place by hands but this don't obviuolsy mean they are hand stitched or finished.

    However this is simply marketing, they made what seem to be very good products.

    Thanks for the thoughts on the "handmade" details. He are some pics of the Sienna. Any thoughts on the fit? The sleeve and collar have been pinned. I am concerned on the fit of the left shoulder. There is quite a bit of creasing there. Is this what they call "shirring"? Is it acceptable? How about around the waist?

    Thank you all for the responses!

    I don't know, I think they look slim but not skinny. Tough to tell "tight" without seeing what his legs look like without pants, and I don't want to see that.

    Should I feel just a little bit offended by that last sentence ? I have very shapely legs :)

    The Sevilla is fused? Are you sure on this?

    The jacket is too small especially around the chest where the lapels are clearly bowing.

    Yea I would have to agree.. the lapels dont lie flat and what you see at the sleeve head is what a divot.. it pretty much can mean either the point to point is to small for you or the ratio of the armhole/sleeve head/ your shoulders just dont match.. the armhole can be shaped a little different from your arm and small so it causes everything else to fall out of proportion. All in all that is not a good thing, with the lapels bowing. I would return it and maybe size up or look at a different model all together. Good luck with what you decide!

    Cross-posted from the Tailors' Thread. Just wanted to get a little more feedback before I commit to a decision. Adding to the below notes, I'm probably returning the suit regardless of my decision until I build up some more strength. I'd say my biggest concern is the buttoning stance. I think it might be just a little high and it makes me wonder if I'd be better off going with a MTM Kent Wang suit in a few months instead. Finding a RTW suit that is long enough is challenging.

    Alright, here is the Napoli Jacket. Judging by the Sienna Jacket I am guessing this is too small as well but please let me know what needs fixed. The collar has been pinned. Thanks again!

    I am not too familiar with proper terminology, especially for pants but the jacket looks great. The only thing I see is something I have as well and that is the wrinkling on the back of your left shoulder/arm hole. A tailor on here, told me that, that is because I have a low left shoulder thus creating this and there really isn't much else I/you can do about that.

    Still too tight (upper back as well as chest). There's another problem visible in both suits - dents in the sleevehead, maybe due to square shoulders. Frankly, SuitSupply might not have anything that fits well on you.

    The jacket looks to be too small in general for you. I doubt this is a problem you'll solve by choosing another fit. The sleeves are also too long, though that's a problem more easily rectified.

    Try taking the next size up, and try the short size while you're at it if you aren't doing so already (or pick the normal if this is the long).

    Thank you guys for the feedback. I wish I could make the suits work but I am going to have to go up to a 42R or 42S but SS wont let me go with the smaller pants so I am going to look for separates from another brand. :( Thanks again for the thoughts! Chad

    Fixing pants is much easier than jackets. It's pretty easy to slim pants. You never know, you might need more room in the thighs if you squat. I figure you lift, given the size of your chest.

    I would need a 42 size jacket and that would come with a 36 size pant. I would need a 32 size pant to fit properly. Isn't that quite a difference for the tailor to work with? Maybe not??!!
