Hello all

This is my first post on these forums, so apologies if this is in the wrong place.

I am looking to purchase a navy or dark blue half-canvassed suit for my wedding this summer. I have mostly been looking at the SuitSupply Lazio range, however the following two TM Lewin sale suits caught my eye:

A) https://www.tmlewin.co.uk/clearance/...ol-58828S.html
B) https://www.tmlewin.co.uk/clearance/...ol-58692S.html

Both have been discounted down to £200 - the first from £400 and the second from £350. What stood out to me was the seemingly good fabric for the price (Dormeuil and VBC).


My specific questions are:
1) Am I right that the suits represent good value? Is one of Dormeuil or VBC typically considered better or is the fabric quality likely to be comparable?

2) From what I've seen online I was under the impression that most TM Lewin suits are half-canvassed. This is noted specifically in Suit B's description ("Partial canvas construction for light, comfortable wear"), but given that Suit A is supposedly the more expensive suit at RRP, would it be safe to assume it is also half-canvassed?

3) Will the functional button holes rule out sleeve shortening entirely? I can imagine needing the sleeves to be shortened by up to 1cm.

4) What is the general view of TM Lewin in terms of style and fit. I am 5ft8 and 140lb (give or take) with ~8in drop chest to waist so tend to prefer more slim fitting suits. Would the TM Lewins be suitable? For the money I'd save vs a SuitSupply I could certainly get a few alterations done.

Apologies for the long list of questions and thank you everyone in advance!
