Washington has a longer jacket.

I don't care what you think it looks like. Take 5 seconds to read the descriptions. The Washington has a longer jacket/sleeve length.

Where do you see jacket length? I only see sleeve length, which is not what I'm talking about. Also, why do you have to be a jerk about it?

The Washington is our slimmest, most modern fit. The Washington is characterized by strong masculine lines and distinctive details such as wide peak lapels, concave shoulders, front ticket pocket, longer jacket and sleeve length and a slimmer trouser with a higher rise.

Ah, I see it now - in the drawings they have the Washington looks longer too. It must just be something about the models pose that makes it look shorter in the pictures.

I'm used to also being asked the pants size (I think the suit comes with pants?). I'm planning on getting 36S; if it does come with pants, what size would it be?

Edit: Is the answer in the Alterations tab? It costs an extra $12 but allows you to input inseam/taking in the waist/hemming. I find it weird cause it asks you before you try the suit on to see where you need to take it in/hem.

For a 36S, the pants would be a 30. I'd leave them unfinished and have the alterations done at your local store - that way the length can be exactly what you're looking for.

Here's a Benjamin Granoro I'm debating now.

Very nice quality.

Excuse the dirty mirror.

Very strange that the Washington would have a longer jacket being that it is the more modern suit. You would think it would have the shorter jacket. Also, I debating wheter or not I like the ticket pocket with charcoal. Do you think that it works? I like the slimmer fit of the Washington but not the ticket pocket and peak lapels. It makes it looks too trendy.

What type of build are you? Also what model is this? Would you consider this a darker charcoal, lighter, or medium shade? I am very thin so thats why I believe the Washington may be best. At $465 for a fully canvassed suit, SS seems too good to be true. The jackets alone at stores like J Crew and Banana are $425. Then places like BB have half-canvassed at $999 year round.

Im tall and athletic diesel man.. I played basketball in college so along the lines of Lebron James with skinnier legs. This is the Napoli style which is considered their most conservative style. I have  broad shoulders and a barrel chest (as a tailor put) but a smaller waist for my size and legs.. (46 chest and a 37 inch waist) so it fits me well. It is a dark charcoal but not to the point where it looks black in lighting. I emailed them before I purchased the suit and they let me know the sienna had a shoulder and chest that was too narrow for mine. The Washington I would have had to size up to a 48L.. and I already have a couple of suits that have that kind of styling so thus my purchase of the Napoli cut..I would say if you are skinny then the Sienna or Washington might be the best fit..I did very little to the suit.. just had to let out the sleeve and add an extra button hole. Did not touch the pants or the jacket per say apart from the sleeves.. I will still want to get rid of the sleeve pitch issues when I come across the right tailor.. and not fully canvassed.. its half canvassed but still pretty good given the price point
