Here is the thing (for me) about bold suits, (and MBreinin and o/o suits posted here are not what I would call bold) 99% of the time they look like crap, too much pattern at the top and bottom. You can't look at movie stars in publicity shots or movie stills and say "that looks great!" and think you can co-opt the look. Every attempt that I have seen at looking "apparel arts" has failed miserably. The Duke's loud suit were mostly country tweeds, and given who he was and where he was most of the time, it worked for him. If you have to give a lot of thought into what to wear with a suit, the chances of you looking good in it dwindle tremondously. I have nightmares whenever I go into the Dashing Tweeds website. My general rule is that if a suit's jacket would look good as a sportcoat due to the loud pattern, it will not work as a suit. if you are not in fashion, an actor or british nobility, stay away from them.
