Is this plaid suit too dated to be worn? - Page 2

post #16 of 51
There is "out there" and there is "fashion mistake" I'm afraid even the venerable PT can't pull this one off.

Thanks guys, I think I'll let that one go. I did however pick this up recently, a Chester Barrie, 100% cashmere. I'll try to meet Man of Lints high expectations with it.

Those pants as odd trousers would be pretty cool though.

I like this. And the cut looks modern.

Might be OK for clowning around in. Is it 100% polyester?

Yes, it might be that it is photographed at a more flattering angle than the suit, but it doesn't look dated and I could see it working well, in a way that I think the suit couldn't.

This kind of plaid jacket always reminds me of Americans that talk too loud. 100% cashmere though, that's unusual for the 1970s isn't it?

It's really sort of odd to me to see both such a bad suit and such a good coat posted by the same person. The suit in the first post would look kind of sad, frankly. It would only even look acceptable on someone in a trendy English band or something along those lines. The sport coat, however, looks amazing and I'd wear it without hesitation.
