I have been in touch with Aleksander Lund, CEO of Suitopia, to conduct a full review of a suit from them. Suitopia recently released a new suit designer and they offer approximately 175 fabrics online. You can customize your product in many ways, to get exactly what you are looking for. This process has been a great experience and I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts below!
Designing my suit
The designing process on Suitopia is very slick, it lets you choose what you want to design (suit, tuxedo, dress coat, etc.) and then allows you to customize each individual piece of the product. You pick your fabric and then modify each piece to exactly what you want. A few customizations that I would have liked weren’t listed on the page, so I requested some modifications and Suitopia was happy to oblige me! As you can check out below, I selected a light grey fabric for my three-piece suit that included a jacket with peak lapels and 2-buttons, slim-fit pants and a 6-button waistcoat.
The product showed up in less than two weeks. The packaging was an average FedEx box, but inside was a very nice suit bag containing the suit. The product looked great, neatly folded in the bag.
Quality & Construction
Upon full inspection of the products the jacket and pants were exactly as I requested, but the waistcoat was a double-breasted version and it had the lining on the inside as well as the back. I had requested a 6-button waistcoat and not specified single or double in the message so this was partially my fault. I had not specified how the back of the waistcoat should look so that means the default from Suitopia is that the lining is on the back as well. Upon seeing this I would have preferred that the back be the same fabric as the suit. Fortunately, I let Aleksander know and he was happy to provide me with a new waistcoat.
Once I had all three pieces of the suit I tried it all on and it fit great (more on that later). I took the suit in to my tailor to get his opinion and he agreed with me. We also discussed the quality of the suit and for the price we both felt that the fabric, construction and fine details of the suit were all well done. It is certainly not the best suit my tailor has ever seen, but for the price range it is well above what would be expected.
As you know, the opinion here at Made to Review, is that Fit is key to any garment. If it doesn’t fit, you might as well not even wear it. Suitopia nailed every aspect of fit for this suit. The pants are nice and slim in the leg and the waist fits snugly, but not to tight. The waistcoat is just the right length and it is not baggy around the waist or chest. The jacket is nice and slim, without being constricting and the armholes are correctly done so that the suit sits on my shoulders correctly no matter what I am doing with my arms.
As a company, Suitopia has a lot of great things to offer. There service is very friendly, they are clear about the products they provide, and the quality exceeds the cost you pay. With all of this in mind I am pleased to say that I am very happy with the service and product that I have received from Suitopia.
Endorsement: Based on the quality of the products, the service and the price range I am very impressed with Suitopia. If you are looking for an excellent fitting suit that is also built with quality materials, Suitopia is a great option!
