    It is uber-aggressive for most circles. Maybe you could wear it to an art gallery opening, in NYC, LA, Amsterdam. paris, etc. Not Des Moines or Waco.

    It's too big. The shoulders are off and a Washington cut is supposedly slim then something is off with the sizing.

    It's a casual summer suit in an urban context. You don't need an opportunity for it, just wear it after work and at weekends in the city. The problem is that the concept of a casual suit is not widely known anymore outside of SF circles, especially in the US. You should expect to be looked at but then that's the point of wearing a loud windowpane suit in the first place. :)

    I'm about to order the Napoli suit in Navy, but I had a question for you guys:

    I'm 5'6, 37 inch chest and 32 inch waist. Do you think I'd be better served with a 38S or a 36R?

    Ideally I'd be a 36S but they don't have that size. Maybe I'll pick up both and see. Any suggestions?

    Id wear it as a sportcoat, but not a suit, too much going on. Unfortunately I feel that way about a lot of the SS suits, at least the loud ones.

    Hey, I came across your post and have had the same problem with the chest. You may have you hips too far forward with respect to your back. This makes your chest hit the jacket too high. Here's a couple exercises to try to open up your hips:





    Good luck.

    It's obvious that SuitSupply's suits use European sizing. Generally speaking, subtract 10 from the European size to get the North American/UK size.

    It would seem the SuitSupply sizing guide was trying to suggest you go with a size 34 suit, not a size 36 or 38.

    Here is a pic of me in the Washington Fit. Shirt and tie are also from SS. Yes I did put my camera on a tripod...don't judge ha.

    A couple things I'd like to touch on:
    1 - From certain angles the lapels appear to point straight up, which is not always the case. I noticed it does happen when the jacket pulls.
    2. - I might go back to SS to have the sleeves taken out a bit. The sleeves dont feel too snug at all however they tend to bunch up in weird places probably because they are getting caught on the sleeves of my dress shirt :(

    Just got my "napoli" in the mail. Amazingg quality. Was worried at first that it would not be slim enough for my liking but exceeds my expectations. I'm 6'3 about 185 in a 40L and fit almost perfect out of box. Will post picks when I get it back from the tailor

    Very very nice.
    I am about to order 2 test jackets in the havana and washington fits just to try on the sizes. Maybe I will be brave enough to post some fit pics afterwards.

    I'll have to check, thanks.

    Is there something in particular you're looking for? I'm here to help and answer any questions I can based on my experiences.
