    The top and bottom will be subject to taste, but to me, the middle one is in a state of non-negotiable disarray. I don't see why the length of the jacket should vary by the formality of the occasion, to the extent where one could pull an ill-fitting jacket from a closet and vouch for its fit based on one's plans to go bowling and sake bombing that evening. To me, fit is non-negotiable, because it's the most identifiable metric in the care that one puts into dressing. The scale of formality would be measured in the refinement or texture of the fabric. At the very least, I'd be uncomfortable presenting myself with a group of people who might hold traditional opinions on tailoring, so I would always hedge towards traditional standards. There's really nothing for me to gain by toeing the line of proper jacket length. It's the exact same rationale for wearing black to a funeral. The approval of those who insist on black will be more important to retain than the relatively accommodating apathy of people who find grey suitable.

    I'm sorry Stephen Hero.. I kind of agree with cousin donuts. I always feel like a blazer with jeans barely works. The reason why it barely works is because a jacket especially one with some form of structure in the shoulders is usually meant to be worn with slacks either of the same pattern or not. It only works with the jeans to me if it's shorter. In my eye it has to be visually shorter than a traditional jacket to work. Like Cousin Donuts stated for a younger man under 40 it works. Its young, it's hip. However to each his own. I think the length on all of them work for me. If your idea of fit for a blazer and a pair jeans is for a longer jacket then that's okay for you. Another reason why it may deemed as shorter is that he is wearing low rise jeans. They are naturally sitting lower on his hips than higher on his waist. Therefore the reason why its not covering his arse is because his jeans are not sitting naturally where a pair of slacks would sit (slacks sitting higher on the waist).

    Does anyone know how the Sienna fits compared with the Washington?

    I really like the slim style of the Washington but wanted a blue suit (not navy) and the online store only really has them in the sienna style. I think they had some a few months back but i wasnt quick enough to pull the trigger.

    Sienna is not as slim cut as Washington. If the Washington cut fits you perfectly and you like how it looks, I would skip the Sienna cut. It's a completely different and much more "softer" silhouette, shoulder construction, button stance, cut of the trousers.

    I got mine in 2-3 days, shipped to Canada. Quite astonishing.

    What do you think of your suit? I got a Napoli and thought for $469 the quality was worthwhile. However, since I am a thin guy, the suit didn't fit as well as I would have liked. It would require lots of tailoring and then the cost would have added up. I also think the lapels are a bit big.

    Has anyone actually purchased a suit from the washington line. If so would you be able to post some photos. Be interesting to see how it actually looks compared to the napoli and sienna lines

    I'm a reasonably large, athletic guy, and I only had to hem the pants on my 44L Really happy with it. Would contemplate a slightly slimmer model next time though.

    Hi guys.. just wanted to add my experience with suitsupply.com. I am not knocking on the company, just offering some FYI.

    I went to the store to try on the suits. I tried on the a washington 42S in store and fell in love it was an excellent fit for me, but I wanted gray. So i went home and ordered the gray one. Was super excited that it came in only a few days but then disappointed by the fit, it was totally different from the one i tried in the store. I went back to the store and they said it was a different drop. The one I tried in the store was a drop 7 and the one I received was drop 5. I ended up getting one I tried on in the store. So be-careful with the sizing, I saw sames suits with a drop 4, 5, 6, and 7. I hope they standardize it soon.

    I love the suit I bought and the service was amazing. I will definitely be buying again from them, but will be checking the drop first before I buy.
