I just made a purchase of six of these... ...to be used by my wedding party: one for me, three for the Groomsmen, and two for the fathers. They will be part of my gifts to them. The linen is lightweight, but crisp and substantial. The rolls are quite elegant. It's a very pure white, and I imagine it would pop quite well with a dark suit. I also got one square: white with blue end-on-end edge, sort of like this... ...although the pattern was the snowflake, like...

Joseph A Bank. There is this, though (from the shoes page)...

Mine have not gotten worse, though.

I have to use my imagination a bit, because everything is in the pre-alteration stage. That said, I don't think I necessarily look better in the Versace, even though it's a better as-is fit. Then again, a few push-ups and/or beers down the road, it may end up too tight anyway.
Interesting. Thanks for the replies. They're all about what I expected. Can anyone offer a dissenting opinion?

I would not recommend wearing the versace to most job interviews. I see what you mean. I want this to be as versatile as possible: weddings, concerts, interviews, etc. And I certainly would not want the versatility of a solid navy suit to be offset by the cut. I would think that would be defeating the...

If you're going to wear this often, you will certainly notice the difference in quality and breathability when you wear it over extended periods of time. I certainly agree, and that certainly is a part of the deliberation. The Southwick is not fully...
To start, I'm 5'8", 150 pounds, and there seem to be more people my size on SF than there are in real life, so I feel like this is a good place to ask for advice (among other reasons, of course) . Also, for reference, I am 28 years old. I need a solid navy suit. At this very moment (and, of course, this all may change), I have it narrowed down to two suits. They are both 3-button suits with flat-front trousers. They are the same price. They are very different...
Oh man, it was my birthday yesterday, too!
