It would seem that way with some people and generally being Italian made as well. I usually favour an English cut but I've seen some Italian cuts that I'd consider... were it not for reverse pleats.

What do you think a tailor could do with one of their suits? For $99, I'm tempted to get one and see if my tailor could turn it into a really fashion-forward cut suit. I'd get a regular jacket (which from them is a bit short on me) and flat front pants, then have the tailor take both in as much as possible at every point. Would this work, as far as the cut, or would it just be a disaster? Also, I'm 6'1, and a lot of leg, any chance a short length would work if I were going plain bottom? Think about this: The Business Express separates in black and white check, pants slimmed, jacket worn a bit on short side and super supressed at waist. I'm still wondering, though, just how slim my tailor could get the pants.

The one in my building has an additional 50% off sale so I bought 5 silk ties for $12.98 a pop!

To get a true modern look, the lapels probably also would need modification. The jacket likely could only be shortened about half an inch (not that a short jacket on a tall man is advisable). To try all that doesn't sound like a good idea.

Pleaseeee...

I guess I should return the Crockett and Jones and Lobb shoes I own, and Pantherella socks I wear everyday as my clothing obession....

Kidding aside, I was a bit harsh with my hyperbole and ask forgiveness, so EA's embellishment of oversimplifying another with a obessive sartorial spin to further a supposed mental flaw for my insulting a brand he enjoys, is an acceptiable touché. Running onward...

I do think you can do better with your clothing investment for various reasons. But if you enjoy JaB, more power to you. They do classic business styling well and at extremely affordable price point when on sale.
