Autumn I completely agree. The blended linen...is just that. It's a cotton/linen blend. The more expensive linen wrinkles more, but may have less 'thread-like' appearance.

 

Either way, FI loves it and was very happy with the quality, price, delivery time and fit.

 

Good luck ladies.

I have several pairs of linen pants and have seen linen suits in the store and I just didn't care for the linen pattern that the $99 suit had- just too pronounced and looked almost retro to me. After looking more carefully at the swatch pictures posted earlier in the thread, the more expensive linen that studio suits offers probably would have made us much happier and are more similar to the pants I have. The suit wasn't put together cheaply in my opinion, I just don't like the look of the pattern on the jacket. If he were only wearing the pants it would be fine, but with the jacket on it's way more noticeable.

Sometimes it's worth it to get the samples before hand to see what you're getting. Photos can only do so much. We got all of our suits in English beige and new what the pattern was like because we had bought samples.

The fit and construction of the suits is impeccable and all of our guys loved them. I'll try to post some pictures tonight...

I have to chime in a little bit- my swatches are gone, but FI felt the same way about the 99 linen, so it is probably a good idea to get swatches before you buy just in case.

I agree and definitely wish we would have ordered the swatches beforehand!

Just received my FI suit today that we ordered from Studio Suits.com! Absolutely beautiful!!! I am beyond impressed! There customer service was the best and it took a little over a week for it to be made and shipped. We payed $128.00 total including Fed Ex priority shipping. So excited!

I'm sorry you girls aren't happy with the linen blend material. Have you tried contacting them to see if they could do anything about it? ..exchange maybe?? Their customer service has been excellent for us.

 

My fiance loves his suit and it is definitely made very nicely. I think he looks GORGEOUS in it :) We actually had looked at linen blend fabrics while looking for a suit so we already knew what to expect and think the blend is perfect for our outdoor ceremony. He didn't want the pure linen suit because he didn't want to deal with how easily it wrinkles on our wedding day. Good luck!
