Hey all, this is my introduction to Style Forum, so please be gentle. Still learning the rules and ropes.
Anyway, this is a suit passed on to me. I have a feeling it's been thrifted for several generations, so any original details are lost on me. All I can say with certitude is that it's Pierre Cardin and from some place called Field Brothers. No address or further info on tag.
I quite like the color, I didn't have a light-colored suit beforehand, and I'm a sucker for a 3 piece. But, as you'll see in the photos, it's really, shall we say, of an era.
As gentlemen of discerning taste, do you think this could be casually worn without drawing unwanted comments ("I hear the BeeGees are reuniting!") or are the lapels and styling just too much? Also, the pants seem pretty damn massive though fit at my waist pretty well. Worth tapering them in so they're a bit less bell bottomy? Lastly, I can't find tags on it and my sense of touch ain't great. Based on the pattern photo, does anyone have any inclination if this has any percentage polyester? It's of that moment...
Basically, I'm asking if this suit's a bust or not. Something about it makes me not want to let it go, but I also don't know how to rock it too much. Keep in mind I'm in my mid-20s so it's not as if I'm wearing this to a lot of formal get-togethers and I'm inclined towards looking like I could have fun, but I don't want to look like an idiot. Let me know if I should supply more info to help form opinions.
