Is this (BBBF) really not business-appropriate? - Page 2

Granted, I am an old guy, but if I saw someone wear this in a business environment, I would assume the wearer to not know too much about suits.

I agree with this guy. And also the guy who said it looked nasty. Also, I think it may be for cooler weather. I didn't read enough into it to see the fabric weight but it sure does look like it.

If you buy a BBBF suit that fits, no one will be the wiser. They're well made and fit well when sized correctly (if a bit shorter than normal). As someone mentioned earlier, BBBF models wear a size down from the size that fits them properly in order to emphasize the Thom Browne look.

Be sure to try the suit on in person before you buy.

I looks fine to me, I do not see any problem with wearing it at all.

I would agree. BBBF clothes seem to fit differently (most cases, better) in person versus on the models, which do the clothes little justice.

Definitely try it out before you have it tailored. BB does have a very good return policy, I've returned things that were close a year old, just unworn.

I don't particularly care for the lapels, but if you like it...

Isn't this style getting a bit long on the tooth? BB launched BF in 2007, and it seemed ok for trying then, but now it's a dated fashion item, no?

I tried this on today and loved it. If hemmed at a reasonable length, and worn with black shoes, white shirt and repp tie? Is the jacket that short? Are the lapels that thin?

By business appropriate I mean for a law firm, not a bank.

It looks too much like an Homage to Pee Wee Herman, who as far as I know, is not a member of the Bar.

I think it is to fashion forward as stated before
