About to buy a SuitSupply custom made. Can anyone advise on modern fashions when choosing some of the fit and style? I want the suit to be slim fitting and modern, but not trying to make any flashy statements or have it be super tight. Just a nice looking blue suit for weddings and formal events.

Natural shoulder or slightly padded? Side adjusters on trousers or belt loop? Fabric design?

Side adjusters. Nerds wear belts (and cummerbunds).


Side adjusters. Worth paying more for good fabric. And remember that the fashion for suits is moving away from the Thom Browne boil washes level of tightness. Lapels are getting less narrow. A tight narrow suit on a big guy makes you look like a club doorman.


Shoulder padding really depends on how big your shoulders are in the first place… they’ll give you input on this there and you can try on models with different padding. If you’re going custom they’ll make sure you understand what you are ordering before you finalize anything.


Definitely side adjusters. Lightly padded is probably the safest choice if you are unsure.

What’s the feedback on SuitSupply?

Mine came out good and fit great before covid. Can't wear them now a little over a year later due to Covid, they are exact fit with very little play so as long as your weight doesn't change you are good.

Fabric design? As in like pinstripe or checkered? I’d definitely keep it on the plain side. Something timeless and versatile. You’re already on the right track going blue….so long as it’s Navy blue.

Uh buy the top and bottom separately, they are cheaper if you do

According to reddit

Slightly padded is recommended if you have an athletic build. Side adjusters are cute but I still like belt loop since I have some belly mass and having a belt helps smooth the curve :) Fabric wise I’d go with all season extra fine wool; comfy and fairly easy to care. Dark navy, grey and charcoal are all safe color choices. You can add some subtle plaid or pinstripe if you are feeling extra spicy.
