Perfectly appropriate.
Double breasted would button better up against the weather.
I am skeptical. In my experience, low price buyers are the hardest to please. If it doesn't fit perfectly out of the box, they won't want to spend $50 on alterations. I think you'll end up with more returns, more complaints, and more headaches. Their complaints will then be amplified by the interwebs, and may hurt your reputation and put off buyers for the higher end merchandise. Once you go down market, it's hard to come back.
And who made them?
When people say "modern" I think they mean that if you get something styled in the current fashion, which is very short and tight fitting with very narrow lapels (e.g. J. Crew's Ludlow suits), it is likely to go out of fashion. By comparison, the BB Fitzgerald is fairly slim fitting, with what you might call "contemporary" styling, but not so extreme. It is therefore less likely to go out of fashion so quickly.
I was told it is the difference between the chest size, and the size of the jacket's waist rather than the pants. Can someone confirm either way?
