    Does anyone know how these fit? Do they fit similar to suit supply? I know that jcrew suits fit wonky on me for some reason

    They have several different "cuts". Your best bet is to find something existing in your wardrobe that fits you really well and is comfortable to your taste, then take some measurements according to the sizing guides you can find on any product page. Find the cut and size that most closely mimics (or matches exactly in some cases) those measurements and Bob's your uncle.

    In my experience, the Bonobos Jetsetter suit fits better than either JCrew or Suit Supply. The standard fit (or whatever it is that they call their non-slim, non-athletic fit) fits me just about perfectly around the chest and midsection right out of the box, while JCrew and Suit Supply suits need some alteration. I have three of the jetsetter suits and they are my favorites.

    That said, everyone's different and what works for my specific measurement ratios may not work for yours, so take that all with the appropriate grain of salt.

    I have experience with all of these, as I own multiple suits from each. Suit Supply and Spier are similar, both quality and cut wise (Napoli/Contemporary). I give the fit edge to SuSu (slightly higher button stance looks better on me, requires less tailoring effort) and the construction edge to Spier (better shoulders, lighter lining, more consistent execution).

    J Crew I'm pretty generally disappointed in. The suits are much more "American" in cut, and quality of materials is lower. In that respect Bonobos is similar - the quality of wool is lesser than Spier or SuSu, it's very matte in appearance. But fit wise in the athletic cut Bonobos is better than any other option on me. I find the liners better on Bonobos than J Crew, so J Crew for me is a distant fourth of the options.
