Please let me have your thoughts on this suit, particularly the lapels. Is it an older model? It has a center vent. THANKS!
The good news:
I love Belvest. I own several suits/ sportcoats from them. Their
quality is superb. So is their tailoring. I am contemplating getting
some bespoke. I will use a favorite Belvest Sport Coat as the model.
The bad news:
Belvest manufactures for many retailers in many styles. In the San Francsico
Bay Area one of their main retailers sells clothing that would be more appropriate
to the Sopranos, specifically Silvio and Tony Walnuts, than the typical Style Forum member,
In other words the New Jersey Mafia "look".
Your suit: Older model. No where near the SF paradigm- if you care.
Try these guys for current and good taste Belvest:
I realize this is an old post, however I did want to contribute as I was looking something up and came across it..
No, it does not mean it is an old suit. The lapels actually reflect that it is a new suit.
Ive just purchased a new 2013 Belvest unlined, tailored cotton corduroy type sport coat from the new Spring/Summer collection that is ventless! Ive even come across a 4 button style blazer made of cashmire from this year's collection!!
Belvest does a bit of everything. This I Can say from actual experience..
I also purchased a new Attolini that was ventless, which I returned as I generally don't like ventless unless it is a summer, super casual thing...which is odd I realize as ventless is the norm for more formal dinner jackets.
