I just want to confirm the Google Spreadsheet is still being updated and Suit Supply is still a 3.

Thanks.

Their Jort line is fully canvassed, which puts them at a 3 (Most of the brands in the 3 or good category are fully canvassed). I don't think it's a literal ranking, as all of the suits in the 3 range are interchangeable (mostly machine-made and fully canvassed with the only distinguishing factor being the fabrics used), which is why that line stays there. Their mainline stuff that is half-canvassed is in the 2 or satisfactory group.

The problem with taking a pure analytical approach is that you don't get to actually feel the suits and realize why suit supply does not belong in that category. Not all canvassing is equal not all machine made suits are equal either, there's so much more that goes into them.

Anyone who's handled a Pal Zileri suit knows that is is leagues above the best that Suitsupply has to offer. It's not close at all

For what it's worth, Jort is now discontinued. SS's newest hirarchy is more confusing than it used to be now

Exactly. The working guide here is out of date regarding Suit Supply. I am a bit new to this so sorry if I sound confusing. It appears they no longer have red or purple or any lines like that. Additionally some Lazio models are full, some are half canvassed. I would imagine their non MTM suits are still a 2 regardless of that. Although some of their full canvassed Lazio suits are 1,000 USD. For the half canvassed suits at a 600 USD price I think it's pretty good though. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Anyway Reddit seems to love SS and they have moderate favorable reviews here.

you highlight the text you want quoted and when the little shadow box comes up, select “+quote”. Then click on the reply box and select “quote” at the bottom of the box.

So I see this suit on ebay from Gieves and Hawks. The brand is ranked pretty respectably on the hierarchy for top Italian and British buy, but as a 0 for their regular brand. How do I tell what I am looking at?

This is the part of the guide the confuses me since many brands are listed twice, sometimes without a clear indication of how to differentiate.

Please don't steal this if it is good. Lol.
