Not what I was hoping for, but good enough not to return.
on June 19, 2014
I own several good suits (suit supply purple line, a couple made to measure, and a custom tux) and was looking for a tan summertime casual suit. The price point on a lightning deal was enough for me to risk pulling this trigger and hoping for a hit, not a home run.
The positives, it fits very well, hugging (not squeezing) where it should and the arms show about 1/4 inch of shirt sleeve. The pockets are functional, not merely a flap, once again not that they get used outside of the chest pocket for a pocket square. The shoulders aren't overly padded and hit where they should on me so I don't have divots there. The length is good too as it covers the backside.
The negatives, nowhere on the site was the fabric content labeled. I was hoping for a cotton or even a cotton blend and half lining to assist with making it more breathable. Instead I was disappointed to discover it is 100% POLYESTER, the least breathable of all man made fabrics. Instead of sewing the tags on they used those darn plastic staples that leave small holes in the fabric. Sure, those will close up after cleaning. However polyester is prone to becoming shiny when pressed so I don't want to have it cleaned often.
