    +1, this is my understanding as well. I've never seen a Sevilla cut in the wild, though.

    Could anyone give a quick run down on the different cuts from SS with respect to slimness, shoulders, jacket length, and button stance?
    I'm familiar with the washington cut (slimmest), so perhaps you could compare other models with it. I did read the entire thread and have a general idea on the fits, but it would be very helpful if you could compare the said details with respect to the washington model.
    Thanks!

    Got my first jacket from SS the other day, the blue peak lapel washington half. I'm a pretty standard 38 and like a trim fit in the mid-section and this jacket definitely fits the bill. Shoulders might be a tad too tight so I'll see what my tailor can do, but its a great modern cut jacket that looks and feels great. Will try to put some pictures up soon, but for the price, the quality is there and I plan to pick up a full suit from them in the near future.

    Very interested in suitsupply now as well ... read through a bunch of pages here, and it seems like the pants fit are more on the slim side in general? does that mean their slim-fits are really really slim? I'm 5'4 athletic build with shorter legs, but my thighs are kind of big (from playing soccer and running most of my life), so most slim-fits are decently tight on me.

    Would the Napoli cut work the best? I like the cut of the Washington-Half and Lazio as well if I could fit into them ...

    I tried a few on the other day, and as you mention, found Washington by far the slimmest. This is how I would classify them, starting with slimmest:

    Washington: highest armhole, slimmest sleeves & body, peak lapel, 3/2 button, strong (but not wide) shoulder
    Lazio: lightly padded shoulder, slim but not constricting
    Siena: soft shoulder, hacking pockets, higher button stance than the two above
    Napoli: shortest jacket, highest button stance, least suppressed waist

    Napoli legs are not slim.

    Look back at my picture from last week. The width of those Napoli pants were not altered in any way.

    Thanks. Can anyone confirm or add to this list? I think it would be helpful for everyone interested in Suitsupply to have this consolidated in a quote.

    Why? I bought a napoli before. I ended up returning it. The pants are not slim. They are average. Too baggy for me.

    Then my slim is your baggy. The point is that a matter of fact statement was made when it is actually a matter of personal experience. We're all built differently. And we all have different environments. Compared to the pleated JAB suits I work with, the Napoli's are slimmer than average.

    My experience and thoughts on purchasing a suit from SuitSupply:

    Was looking for a solid navy, single-breasted, peak-lapel suit for my wedding in December. I'd been looking for a LONG time for one, and I pulled the trigger on the SuitSupply Washington model because it a) was basically what I was looking for, b) heard from many here that it was a good suit for the price, and c) didn't think I would find anything better in time.

    I won't bother with the pros of the suit, since they've been stated already (and I agree).

    What I didn't like or wished was different:
    a) Working sleeve buttons suck on a OTR suit. I will have to shorten the sleeves FROM THE SHOULDER which is MUCH more expensive than if it were from the sleeve.
    b) I'm a short, but this short isn't short enough. This suit is halfway between a "usual" short and regular. I would like to shorten the jacket, but I won't due to cost and the next reason.
    c) Balance is a bit "off." I felt this when I tried it on, but my much more experienced alterations tailor confirmed it. I asked about shortening the jacket a half inch, but he said the pockets are too low to allow that without throwing the balance of the suit off. He said the pockets should be a bit higher on the jacket.

    Overall, I'm not disappointed and expected what I got--a solid suit at a decent price. Alterations I will have done: remove belt loops, add brace buttons, hem pants, shorten sleeves from shoulder. The jacket fits on my shoulders right out of the box, and I'm just lucky the waist seems to already be just right.

    Things to note: I agree that the sleeve pitch seems a bit skewed, but I hope this is corrected when the sleeves are shortened. I also wish the pants weren't so snug, but I knew that coming in.... I hope this review helps.

    The Washington is supposed to be the slimmest but is also way to trendy IMO with the peak lapels, ticket pocket and 3/2. If Napoli doesn't work out I may try a Washington suit. I am not in love with all the little details of the washington though.

    Peak lapels denote formality, as far as I know. And the 3/2, I would argue, is far from trendy. If you're looking for a staple suit for work in the city, I'd stay away from the Washington model as well--especially if your stable is still in its infancy...
