    Personally I'd go with option 2, it's more of a mid-grey which will give it more flexibility. You can probably wear this in 3 season (maybe not winter) and it'll be fine at the wedding.

    Some would say don't wear a Sienna to job interviews, it does stand out a bit because of the cut and ticket pocket. Imo it's great for interviews, you want to look professional and frankly everyone looks good in a suit cut to their shape. No one wants to wear a boxy old suit that looks like crap.

    Option 1 would also be very nice but you could probably only wear that in spring and summer. Not as versatile.

    Hi Everyone, I just joined Styleforum and this is my first post. I really want to share this beautiful Grey Washington suit and also get some opinions on how it fits.

    Some problems with sleeve pitch on your left arm, and the right sleeve might need shortening, but otherwise a decent OTR fit. Obviously the trousers have to be shortened as well.

    I have the same suit.

    The sleeve pitch issue, while usually an expensive fix, is worth it. I've had a couple jackets adjusted while shortening the sleeve from the shoulder and it makes me love the jacket even more!

    That's the thing about alterations. They're a bitter pill to swallow, but you end up maximising your utility in the long term. You'll wear something which fits perfectly and looks great a lot more than something which doesn't.

    I should add, that Washington has been heavily altered: the sleeves have been taken in from the shoulder and the padding has been reduced in order to move the seam closer to my natural shoulder for a slightly less structured look. It's also been taken in at the chest and waist, and the sleeves have been tapered. Expensive, but the results speak for themselves, I think.

    Thanks for the feedback. Will definitely talk to my tailor about the sleeves. I'm also thinking about having the jacket shortened by a quarter or maybe max half an inch, but I'm worried about throwing off the proportions of the jacket. I'm not very tall, so I need to be careful with jacket length.

    Michael, I noticed that the length of your jacket seems kind of long. It goes past your thumb and even your knuckles. Is that how you like the length? I think it looks good on you given that you look like a pretty tall guy.

    I wouldn't shorten it even if you aren't tall it looks the right length. Don't fall for the short jacket fad that has currently been going on.

    Michael's is a bit longer but I am 6'0" and personally prefer a bit longer length on myself too.

    @Mr. Suited: Your jacket looks fine. Modern RTW jackets are way too short anyway (and consequently button stances are too high). The problem is more acute for me because I'm 6"2. I'm a 48L but I buy a 50L to get a bit of extra length and a lower, neutral button stance.

    In #menswear, there is only one rule you should never break: always cover your ass. Short jackets will look dated soon enough. The Washington has classic proportions. You're better off leaving them alone
