While we are on the subject of SuitSupply, we recently placed an order for a bunch of stuff from them, and thought we’d give you a mini review. What’s particularly interesting is that none of these items are suits, because SuitSupply is quickly becoming a great retailer for all men’s fashion, style, and accessories. They seem to carry some truly fantastic items in just about every category nowadays, so we wanted to take a look at their offerings beyond their great suits. Here are just a few:
(Note: I am 6’1” and 170 lbs. and usually wear a 15.5” / 34 shirt in a slim or extra slim fit. For both products here, I went with a size Medium.)
Pricey, no doubt. But just look at that thing! It’s one of the nicest looking jackets we have ever seen. The fabric is nothing short of luxurious. It’s soft, and rich, and has a great nap to it. It feels wonderful on the body. That being said, we wish the fit was slightly trimmer through the body. We know they were going for that classic, “boxy” look of a true bomber coat, but it ends up riding up oddly in the back, as you can see. Everything else about the coat — the arms especially, usually the most neglected part of a slim fit — fits truly great. Overall, a super solid piece.
For a company that doesn’t specialize in leather works, again, a bit pricey. But, again, just look at that thing. It’s beautiful. It’s like the ideal reduction of what a backpack should be. I bet you Jonathan Ive uses a backpack that looks like this. The leather is actually quite nice, and has a great, subtle pebbled look and texture to it. It easily houses a 13” MacBook Pro along with all cables and accessories, with plenty of room to spare (though we wished there we a few more interior pockets for things like pens and pencils, etc). The negatives? Well, the zippers weren’t so great. We think we got a bit of a defective model. One of the zippers was broken, even. Other than that, we love the way this bag looks and feels.
This was our favorite piece of the bunch. A pretty unusually low price for a SuitSupply jacket. Similar items elsewhere are actually even more expensive. Indeed, these sorts of knitted jackets are actually pretty difficult to find. But they are awesome, versatile pieces that can be dressed both up and down. We love these knitted “blazers,” and enjoy pairing them with dark denim as quickly as with formal trousers. They’re an awesome, unexpected, top layer that is not quite a true blazer, but a whole world above a standard sweater. We wish the fit was a bit trimmer, though I could perhaps solve this problem by sizing down from a Medium to a Small (though I worry, then, about it being too tight, or too short as the length is just about perfect right now). The feel, though, is spot on. A slight stiffness to it which gives it the slightest bit of a constructed feel, though it’s still smooth, and soft, and wears just like a sweater. We think the double breasted front is super unique, and we only want SuitSupply to make more options like this, in this price range, as well!
