They had that suit in their window display in the store I went into yesterday. It looked very nice. I was looking for a charcoal suit, and bought one, but if they hadnt had my size I would certainly have looked at the pinstripe too. If you get the sizing right, surely they can get one in from another store?

Not sure it was sharkskin, it had no sheen, but I cant check it as they have it for alterations. Curiously the SA described it as their most 'sincere' suit, which I questioned and he advised all the lawyers buy them because they always get the jury...

I bought a charcoal RLBL suity yesterday with 30% off only, $1,695 down to $1,186. Thats as much as they would do.
Black label was 30% off today in the boutique store. No kicker mentioned.
I have a stone coloured cotton two piece which I wear occasionally instead of a normal suit. Im always overdressed, but then I am in a very business casual environment (Houston) in the South. I also have a navy blazer suit which is very similar (both Carolina Herrera) and you can soften them by swapping the blazers between them quite easily. In your case your in a formal business environment, and so I wouldnt go for the Southern Gentleman, or Miami Vice look.

Its MTM though, so if you can get your measurements right you can end up with what you want. No complaints from me and its way better than the pics on the Magnoli website.

A couple of mine, even if it is STILL too hot to wear them. Uploaded with ImageShack.us Tan coloured is Carolina Herrera, the dark one a Magnoli.
