I love all your advices :) 
The main question remains : Is it a bargain or not at this price :) ?

32-33 is probably an L (long). How tall are you and your torso?

For the purpose of an interview suit, it just doesn't work. The suit should be conservative for what you want: a solid navy or grey (a staple).

It is an ok price for Brioni, but it's priced at that level for a reason

I am 6.23 feet tall . I won't take it then ... If it isn't a real bargain , I have the cuffs to make and the jacket to make shorter it doesn't worth it I will try to look out for a used but mint suit which will fit me better I think in a plain colour

No one will turn their head because it is a pinstripe suit....

Do not listen to the ignorant SF group whom have ultra high prespective clothing sense

That applies to trainees and old asses in the business

How could stripes really distracts interviewer? I don't actually see pinstripe suit means turn off by interviewer...

BTW, I am not attacking anyone, everyone including me are ultra high perspective on clothes, you can't deny it, this is a fact

But the SF established rule about solid colour to interview is arbitrary

I don't preceive even SF members, which are the potential interviewer, will dislike anyone when stripes are seen. The world at large should be fine

It's the white and orange stripes I find problematic. Such a rare color, it will likely stand out and be remembered. However, if the OP is a redhead or strawberry blond with ruddy features, then nice touch. Until you have a lot of suits, though, something like this seems almost superfluous. I understand that you might disagree, but given our lack of knowledge of the OP, it seems safer to offer generic vs. idiosyncratic advice.

OP tries to find a reason to buy the suit, when he clearly shouldnt.
A black pin-stripe suit should be your 11th+ suit.

Don't forget the cost of alterations, which sounds like anywhere from $50-125+ for you. If you have other suits for interviews and this is your 7th or 8th suit, it works. But if still you need your first 1-6 suits, it doesn't work. The L should work for you given your height.

Try looking at Brooks Brothers. They are having a sale at this time.

Unless it's Toys R Us or an internet startup, the color combination doesn't work, nor does it give a good impression. If he's looking for Fortune 500, it's CONSERVATIVE. You don't want to be dinged before you even open your mouth. We are all trying to help the OP.

I interview people and this would not kill it, but it would be a negative. Part of the interview is your personal appearance, especially if you are in a client-facing role. There are expectations. Fail to meet them and you won't get a check in that box. Believe it or not, people often judge a book by its cover, deserved or not.

I have 5 Brioni suits and there really is only one cut that works for me and that is Nomentano. I am broad shouldered and thin waisted. I have tried many other models and they don't work well for me. If you have th time, you might go and try on the differnt models in a local retailer and be sure that the fit is good for you. You may also need to enquire about the Drop and whether it is an R or an L. The fabric in this suit is appalling and will be difficult to adorn with anything other than a plain white shirt. I don't believe there would be many ties that would work here either so if you are intending to wear it with a tie then I would think very carefully about this purchase!

Well maybe I am lucky, I had worn my chalkstripe SB suit to interview in Deutsch Bank and Law Chambers, I got the job in both of them...

Smile and confidence are probably more important than the colour and pattern of the clothes

In fact, where I live, stripes are just as common to solid colours for interview, it seems interviewer base on my CV and your presentation skills....

My friend also got the internship in Deutsch, and he also worn a chalkstripe

I guess start up jobs interview should be very similar nature for internship interview

p.s. All I saw in OP's picture is a black and white pinstripe, not orange....

Taking off the SF cap and taking a real world view - get the suit. Most interviewers will not give too much thought to the suit, as long it is grey/navy/black.

Our meeting room is near my desk and I get to observe people coming in for business meetings or people who have interviews, no one will say " oh my god, he is wearing a black striped suit with orange stripes".

From the picture, the stripes do look white.

Because that's what you wanted to hear, it's still incorrect.

Don't worship too much on SF member's rules, you could still correct it and remain individual reasoning

There is no such thing as correct or incorrect in this matter, personal reference is key

After all, one got to feel comfortable in their clothes for interviews, I feel good with solid DB or chalkstripe 3 piece, is this wrong? I guess not because I can preform well in the interview, and in my law firm interview the interviewer even compliment on my clothes, a three piece navy chalkstripe Chan, in LP 'wish', and offer me the internship on the spot

The rule that you need to be comfortable with your clothes shall be deemed as uncontroversial

I think the suit will be fine for an interview. But in the big picture of things, you probably want to have a good idea of what suit fits your body the best before you drop $800+alterations. And you might be able to get away wearing this suit outside of interviews if no one expects you to have multiple suits, but then they're probably wondering why your only suit is a black with white/orange stripes.
