Thanks for the advice, got the jacket tailored so I'm not cuffing it. At first I kinda liked the cuffed blazer look (its a really casual unstructured rayon/cotton blend), now I associate it with J. Crew. Hooray
So technically, yes, but in the US they don't like to call it the "Golf GTI" like they do everywhere else. It's just "GTI."
And speaking of flashing keys around, about an hour after I posted this I was at the downtown courthouse and some attorney was flashing a NEW Fiat key to one of his buddies right as I was walking past. I stopped and mentioned I had a 76 Spider and he said he loves his new 500. I'm really tempted myself but if anything, I will wait for the Abarth version.
