Only 1 shipment out of 3 arrived and still, two of my orders weren't even shipped. Oh well, we just gotta wait more patiently.

Meanwhile, I just took some photos of my Jort Navy DB sportscoat I purchased from the last outlet.

This is the most luxurious piece that I own along with La Sapalla S150 wool suit. I love how soft and warm this jacket is but sadly I never got to wear it thus far.

Fabric is 100% Cashmere from Colombo mill.

Only wear a suit 5 -10 times a year (I work in tech) -- but, overdue for a new one.

Deciding between an S-150 wool Washington or

or a full canvas wool/silk Lazio:

I've never tried on a Washington or owned a full canvas, but, I have a slim build and Siennas and Lazios fit me great right off the rack.

Any opinions of which I should go for in terms of quality/construction/deal? I like slightly darker gray, but, both look good tome.
Worth noting, too, that this particular Lazio suit appears to be a La Spalla model, which is one of their lines with a higher make (see full canvas construction, side-tabbed trousers, etc), if I am not mistaken.

If it says Full Canvas it is a La Spalla. I have a handy article with all the fit differences if you are interested.

It still says In process for my sole suit order. I hope it will end up looking good, I never had an actual brown suit before.

It is mostly relevant I would say. I haven't talked about button stance but overall for features it will suffice.

They both look sharp! It’s a tough decision between the two, though I would lean towards the Washington, for these reasons: I like the darker color—but it will make the suit slightly more formal; it has the right bells and whistles (Milanese buttonhole, horn buttons, etc.); and I like that the side tabs are on the waistline, instead of the waistband. Nothing major, but my preference is for the Washington and it’s a great deal.

A caveat I would like to add is that the S150 fabric will likely be less robust that may wear out faster. But it shouldn’t be a major concern, since you’ll only wear this 5–10 suit times a year.

But, if you go with the Lazio, the color is spectacular and that suit will be incredibly versatile. You can wear it everywhere from the office to weddings—and everywhere in between. Where do you envision wearing this suit?

I finally caved and purchased this wool, silk, cashmere Havana, with the fabric from E. Thomas. I’m hoping the color and fabric are versatile enough to wear around town?

This is for special occasions, high end date night only. I lean towards a darker color for that.

S150 wool vs a wool-silk blend on suit supply...maybe that's another question? How would they compare contrast? I'm not concerned about the resiliency of each fabric, since it won't be worn often.

I am concerned about the Washington fit since I've never worn it. I'm 6'. 175lbs, 32" waist) .. Siennas fit like a glove...

The Washington is wider in the shoulders and narrower in the waist compared to the Sienna. If the Sienna fits you perfectly, I may recommend avoiding the Washington for a final sale kind of purchase.

I purchased this last outlet and to me, a lighter navy/blue is much more versatile than a traditional dark navy. A dark navy is too formal and has too much of a contrast with lighter fabrics, where as this works fine with everything from charcoal to cream/white pants.

I’ll leave an expert answer on the fit question to @Noblekostas, but my experience is that the Washington is noticeably slimmer than the Sienna. And it’s slightly longer.

The other question is whether your shoulder profile will benefit from the structure of the Washington.

The problem with this sale is that nothing is returnable, if you live in the United States. That’s a major concern, especially if you haven’t tried a particular fit.

Do you live near a store? Can you go try on a Washington and a Lazio? Quite frankly, I am also a big fan of SuitSupply’s custom program if you live close to a store. Custom suits are only marginally more expensive (when compared to retail, not outlet), but all alterations are included and you get a much cleaner suit from the outset.

Thanks, I did show him my article.

The Sienna fit is called "Contemporary" which is a load of marketing crap. It is regular fit. The Havana and Lazio are slimmer and the Washington is Extra Slim and longer (noticeable around the sleeves) and has the heaviest padding out of any suit. Impossible to say if you will fit but if you are on the larger side @p0rkbelly I would say it is a gamble. You can let out the waist 5-6 cm which is pretty much equivalent to a size up of course but the sleeve length is adjustable max -1.5 cm.

Oh it’s the same one? It looks great in real life! Thanks! I’ll probably wear it with blue jeans three out of four times and with grey/charcoal trousers the remaining one time.
