    +1, it's not a staple suit. To me you should have a staple suit in each color (navy, charcoal) before you start building into a suit like the Washington.

    Anyone have experience with the "italia" model? Couldn't find any info on the other threads, and only one italia SC is in the suitsupply catalog. How is its fit & button stance compared to the washington?

    Just got the Napoli fit, and I must say the pants are much slimmer than I anticipated. They fit very nicely for a suit, I cannot imagine how slim the Washington pants must be.

    Has anyone purchase any grey suits from SS? I just got one and thought it was borderline black, I was wondering how the other greys line up.

    The charcoal i got from the F/W collection looks like the other 2 charcoal's I've owned in my life, neither of which would be confused as black. The one i have is close to this.

    Does anyone know if they have sales on older merchandise in their physical stores? I'll be in London in a few weeks and was hoping some of the F/W jackets were still available and on sale. thanks

    I guess it's just personal preference. I wanted a lighter grey. The lapels are also HUGE!

    I have a Washington sportcoat in something like a dark/royal blue color. It does have peak lapels but does not have a ticket pocket and is a 2-button not a 3/2. The pockets are patch pockets. The only things I don't like about it are that it has 5 sleeve buttons (working) and the sleeve openings are pretty large - they almost appear to flare from a generally slim sleeve - which I guess is to accommodate French cuffs. But I wouldn't be wearing French cuffs with a fairly casual sportcoat.

    Why does nobody like the functional sleeves? Assuming that you dont have to adjust the sleeve length more than 0.5", I think its a cool extra detail to an already well made coat.

    The functional buttons are fine for me - I got a 38L and only needed the sleeves lengthened about 1/2", so it was OK. But if I had needed more of an extension, either the tailoring would have been prohibitively expensive or would not have looked good.

    My problem is that there are five sleeve buttons. I'd prefer four or three.

    Still, I think it's a good value and I'm very happy with the coat. It has a pretty open weave and is only half-lined, so it should be nice and cool in the summer.
