Comments, advice, etc. much appreciated.

I would personally buy the first one you list - the dark grey charcoal - first. For your 4 suit rotation it will give you a contrast between the lighter and darker greys. I also have one of each color, and may consider that faux grey as a purchase down the road though.

Do you need to wear a suit on Friday? If so, you may want to go ahead and consider adding both of these. I don't work in politics so I can't comment on the suits you'll see other than what I see on TV, which mostly appear to be solid navy and charcoal. Do you think you could wear a plaid? Most of SS's plaids are in your face but maybe this suit could work. Or you could also get a grey pinstripe.

If you want to only have 4 for now, don't forget shoes and shirts as ways to change up the look. For example if you needed to wear the navy solid twice, you could on Monday or Tuesday wear a white shirt and dark brown shoes, and on Friday wear the same suit with a blue striped shirt and light brown shoes. Same goes for the light grey - wear black shoes one day and brown the other. If you have a little contrast very few people will even remember that you had on the same suit.

CousinDonuts, when you tried on the Napoli fit, how did the shoulder size compare to a Washington?

I ask this because the shoulder measurements indicated for the Napoli are significantly larger than those of the Washington.

Did it actually feel this way when worn or is this due to the padding?

The Washington was definitely more snug all through the shoulders and body. I had my tailor nip the waist and hips of the Napoli jacket. I wouldn't need to do the same in the same sized Washington. While the website pictures show a similar shoulder construction between the two, I thought the Washington model I tried (this one) felt a touch softer in the shoulders and were laying in a way that I didn't feel like the extra snugness was overly noticeable.

I plan to buy that jacket later in the season. I will definitely buy both the 38 and 40 and see which fits better at the time.

Sorry I can't remember enough to give more detail than that. Perhaps timotune can answer better.

I went into the NYC Soho store recently and have some pretty good things to say about it:

The store: Well organized, simple floor plan, just a long row of suits/jackets, a small section of wide spread collar shirts and a small tie sections. There was a large number of things to try in my size (42S), but they did not have all the fits to try on. I wanted to try a London cut, which has a lower buttoning point, but they had none in stock I could try. This is disappointing if you want to try a fit so you can order online later. The washington cut worked for me, broad shoulders, trimmer waist and higher rise pants. However, like others mentioned, I think the button point is a tad high. I decided I could live with that however, seeing as the suit fit me pretty well off the rack. Picked up a navy blue peak lapel 2 piece for 469 + tax with a 7 dollar hemming done in 30 minutes. IMO unbeatable value for the quality/fit.

The service: Warm and friendly, though sometimes it felt as some of my questions were going over their heads (I was talking to one of the female shop assistants). The male attendant that I spoke with however seemed much more knowledgeable in answering my question about canvassing, and the differences between the fits.

Overall my experience with suitsupply was easy and painless. I found a quality suit that fit me off the rack for under 500, and I will definitely purchase from them again in the future.

EDIT: One small irk, I couldn't buy an extra pair of suit pants. I'll be calling them to see if I can make arrangements, however.

I have disproportionately larger shoulders for my chest size and the Washington cut fit better than the Napoli. Softer shoulder for less bulk.

You're just like me. I had to go with a 38L because of the sleeve length of the 38R.

I don't know who they model their sleeve lengths on, but they were way off for me as well.  The Napoli worked, but the Sienna and others were no go's due to sleeve length issues and the functioning cuffs.

Also check out this blue pinstripe. Very nice:

I'm 6' (6-1 in shoes!) and I would also like the sleeves to be about a quarter inch or so longer. But I've left them alone because rarely am I standing in a way that I have a ton of shirt cuff showing. Just keep it moving.

So the overall length of the jacket wasn't too long for you? Bottom of the jacket covered your ass and lined up with your knuckles? Have any photos by chance? I don't want the 38L to hang down to my knees. Thanks.

When you're looking at the suit online, click the size advice link and you can see the coat length for each size. Long jacket lenghts are about 2inches longer than regular, sleeves 2.1 inches longer. If you really wear a regular, getting a long might give you the opposite problem, due to the working cuffs if you have to hem you might only have a short distance between the bottom button and end of the sleeve. It's a personal preference though if that looks ok or not.

Arrived in the mail today. Excuse the shoes, rumpled legs and the mirror spots.

Just received my new grey windowpane Lazio today - less than 48 hours after ordering online. It fits pretty well right out of the box I think, apart from th
e pants that need hemming. I really like this model: Slim, but not skin tight, nice labels and gorge too. I really which they had more choices available. (Poor) Photos below:

great fit for both of you guys!
@Steffenbp11: I wish the windowpane had fit me that well...

I agree, great looking suits.

chrisb0109 - maybe a little teeny hair shorter on the sleeves if you wanted to get to the nitty gritty, but nothing in the body needs to be touched.

steffenbp11 - how does the body tapering look? (can't see in the pic)
