    I am looking to buy this Sienna blue suit. I want a plain suit with a little texture. From the shot it seems like a faded pinstripe pattern. I am not sure if this their lighting or the clothe has this effect. Would you say it's a stripe blue or more of a plain blue? I can't tell without looking at the real thing.

    Also, would wool-casmere blend be good for all-year suit? I work in tropical climate. I fear it might be too hot.

    That does look like a light pin stripe. I have a cashmere blend double breasted jacket that I cannot wear when its over 80 degrees. And we have dry heat here. Probably not the best fabric for a humid heat

    Wow, we were there almost at the same time and had totally different experiences....

    I had a road trip that took me through DC on Friday so, like you, I planned a diversion to Suit Supply (being from the nether world of Orlando, FL where nothing like that exists). I was pummeled by sales staff. I mean, I couldn't get 2 minutes of browsing without repeated "Are you doing OK?" , "Anything I can help you with?". It was relentless enough to turn me off (I'm one of those "leave me alone and let me browse in peace, I'll holler when I need you" customers that salespeople probably don't like).

    That said, some comments:

    • Some nice fabrics, especially for the price point.
    • Plenty of product in 40R/40L (I'm in between). And, as others have said, the fit is mostly athletic+ - which works for me. Just about perfect for me OTR.
    • I don't like the Jort shoulders at all. I'm glad they were on hangers that labeled them as such so I could skip past them.
    • I dislike their peak lapels even more in person than online. The flannel ones, for example, were flimsy. Others were too big. It was a shame because there were some suits I really liked, but they only came OTR in a peak.
    • All their trouser separates were way too are aggressively tailored. I tend to like a full leg to begin with, but I'll do a slightly tapered leg too. Theirs struck me as almost ridiculous.
    • The relentlessness of the SAs made me think of a car dealership. Note that the Friday I was there was at the end of the month, maybe they work on quota. If so, it shows; in a bad way.
    • I hate the super-short collars (especially when it's a button down) on a lot of their sport shirts - ala Theory and other dork brands. Again, a shame because there were some that I really liked.

    To sum up - nice store, generally nice product and fair to better pricing, and too aggressive sales people for me. I may still eventually get something from them online, but even if I lived close I probably wouldn't revisit the store to browse, only to double check something I was seriously considering buying online.

    Sounds like NewLaw was ignored because the whole sales staff was focused on you.

    No joke, you might be right. And I have no idea why - it's not like I rolled in looking like a big timer who was going to walk out with 5 suits. Seriously, for all the attention given and my polite but slightly forced "I'm just browsing" response, I would have thought they would have moved on - but no. It bordered on comical.

    Looks a tad tight, but it might be the way you're standing. How does it feel?

    Well gentleman. The suit has arrived. Haven't uploaded the pics yet but it will be soon. Jacket fits great in the shoulders though not as surpressed in the stomach (will need your opinions). Only thing is the pants are too tight in the thigh (waist is okay) and I will size up. All in all a great looking suit and great materials. If any of you need any specific pics regarding the quality of the suit please let me know before I need to exchange it. I will say the pants have a great quality.

    Thanks. Feels a little big through the waist actually. Problem is i cannot go to a 40s as it will not fit through the back and chest. I was going to ask my tailor to take in in through the waist and slim the sleeves.

    Glad to hear it. Sounds like you have the same problem with the pants that I do. I am an avid runner/triathlete so my quads/thighs are larger than normal. They took the seat and thigh out of my pants on my navy and grey napoli suits cause I couldn't order the larger pant size. However, going up one pant size in the pin stripe made the pants fit perfect.

    I will try to upload some pics soon. Just haven't had time (or a proper mirror).

    I could be wrong; but is that a herringbone pattern?

    Here are the pictures. Unfortunately..the more I look at the back, the more I worry. Though the pants are a somewhat easy fix the rest doesn't look as good (to me).

    From the front things seem to look good, except the sleeves seem too short...am I correct? This is a 40S..the 40R is 1 inch longer and has 1 inch longer sleeves...would that be a better bet?

    Now the back. The armholes don't seem right as there is a lot of bunching. I have attached one photo with flash, one without..

    I would retake the back pictures first. It seems your posture is off in the shot.

    the problem is you probably have prominent blades (backwise) that is causing those riples..so when you have a coat that has a little bit of balance issues then that happens..I have this happen routinely on RTW items that I wear. Unfortunately its hard to remedy.. I've only really been able to address it in M2M..Apart from that the jacket fits decently well.. the pitch on the pants is off which again happens a lot in RTW... but thats really nitpicking if you are a perfectionist..Overall pretty good..

    Is this the washington? When I get some time I'll try to take some pictures. I have super monster thighs, and my pants dont pull like that in the thighs. very odd unless you have 27 inch+ thighs.

    The fit looks pretty good. I wouldn't worry so much about the back. You don't seem to have any bunching which would indicate the suit is too small for you. (It'll also look better after you undue the vents.) I think you're better off letting out the sleeves than getting a longer jacket. The length seems good.

    What's about the going rate of a basic navy MTM two piece (single breasted)?
