Linen Suit - 8 Colors [Linen Suit] - $99.99 : Studiosuits.com, Custom Suits | Designer Suits


I ordered the greek beige but they are out of stock. The other two colors are close to white. I'm torn now I would prefer having my FI in a white before my Dad.

Because the suits are so nice I'm willing to order FI another one! :-)
Oh, thanks! I thought they were just out of stock but they probably won't get those colors back. That's a tough decision...the Greek beige would be my choice too!

But here's a picture. The Suit fits well, there are some areas we will need to get altered but we did that intentional. I'm sure if we used true measurement instead of my add an inch or two here it would have been perfect.

We went with the linen blend which I highly recommend as others have said on this thread. Its easier to travel with and does not wrinkle as easy as pure linen.

Now we are ordering my Dad's suit today!! :-)
TLC4Rock, I was thinking of ordering Old Tan for the GMs but it looks dark, is it as dark as it looks here or was just the picture?

Ladies - FI and I took the plunge and ordered his and the GM suites from studiosuits. We got them back within 4 weeks but half the suits don't fit according to the meansurements including my FI and I made sure we had a professional tailor measure him. The pants and sleeves come up short and the pants are baggy in the butt and thigh. I submitted a complaint to them to see what they can do but we have about 7 weeks left now so we are working on a plan B. I'm really, really disappointed cos we spent so much money and most other people had rave reviews. We purchased 8 suits from them. Grrrrr!!!!!

 

Any ideas on what stores are carrying linen suits this year?

this sucks. I hope your plan B works out in time. I'm looking for suits for me and my groomsmen, and was just feeling comfortable with giving this site a chance, before I read your post.

Good luck.

Sorry you didn't have much luck. But maybe it would be best to bring the suit to a tailor. We ordered 8 suits and 1 was a little snug. We brought it to a tailor and they fixed the butt area and let it out =) they also took out the seem in the seat area and that helped a lot. It would definitely be cheaper than buying a new suit.

We got our GM's suits from Studiosuits.com as well. They all came out beautifully and fit perfect except for the best man. He had a tailor measure him as well. Maybe the tailors are bitter that they are losing business to India LOL. I saw some nice linen suits in Mexx for $199. Sorry about the suits though - is there no way they can be altered? Maybe you could salvage the pants and then go with a nice shirt and no jacket? 8 suits is a lot to just eat the cost of! You could probably sell them off on craigslist.
Good Luck!

i was set on getting the suits from this site, but in the end FI wanted to see and feel what he was getting before hand. we ended up getting his suit at Macy's just last week...its Perry Ellis. The pants were $50 and the jacket was $120, both on sale (i think 40% off).

Also for future brides (ie 2011)...we ended up getting the GMs linen pants and shirts by Cubavera. Macy's carries the brand and the pants were $40 (on sale, regular price $70) HOWEVER...at the beginning of spring this year I saw A LOT of these exact pants at TjMaxx for $20!!! I told FI we should get them, but he was on the fence. Last week when we went shopping, we only found ONE at TjMaxx so we had to pay double the price for the others at Macy's. so moral of the story....if you know the look you're going for, SHOP EARLY!!!

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well.
