I think this fabric only works for a sport coat and not a particularly compelling one either.

This, fabric could work as a jacketing at best but I wouldn't make a coat out of it not to mention a suit.

This would make an awesome suit. I would do a SB with peak lapel 3r2 and patch pockets. If you went DB it would look very dated. Post the results when you go through with it.

You can't be seriously considering the fabric for a suit? and for a conservative environment.

I wouldn't use this for SB or DB.

I have to agree. I can't see myself walking around in the office in this suit.

I think you could pull it off as a suit.

 

 

If you time traveled back to 1973.

I'd do a suit in this, but I'm in a far from conservative environment.

Concur. But if you really must make a suit, might as well go the whole hog and make it a traditionally-styled 3pc. I don't like the fabric at all, though that's probably partly prejudice stemming from the fact that it would look awful against my own skin tone. Having said that, the OP's username suggests he may have a not too dissimilar complexion, so perhaps that consideration is not as OT as I thought.

You'd have to go all they way FU with that.

2b, sb, side vents, peak lapels, light brown horn buttons, patch pockets, 5cm cuffs, side adjusters, etc.

I'm interested in what shoe you'd wear with this?

Gents thanks for your opinions, I have decided that it is too much and I went a different route...
I was on the fence and I got enough reasons to not get it so thanks sf icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

This is the fabric I ended up getting:

I got it as a double breasted 6X2

Thanks gents!

This I can see working as a fun suit to wear on an evening out or on more casual sort of days. I have a similarly jazzy tramline myself (though as an SB). Much prefer this to the original fabric for a suit.
