Longevity of This Suit

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm thinking of buying this suit, but there are some features of the suit that makes me worried that it won't last the test of time. First, the fact that it's a very slim suit with a thin lapel make me worried that I can't wear this in 5-10 years. Also, the diamond pattern, two slits on the lapel, and the double pockets on the right side are all things that I personally like because I believe it gives the suit character, but again I'm worried that it won't be something I can wear for a long time. So, what are your thoughts?

Thanks for your opinions in advance! smile.gif

Hmm, the color description is "charcoal." I want a darker grey suit because I look like a clown in light grey for some reason. Also, I already have navy, black, grey, and beige suits, so I thought this color would be a nice addition.

Anyway, any opinions on the double pockets on the right, diamond pattern, and the button holes on the lapel? Is that something that might look weird in 5 years?

The lapels and the length don't bode well for the future. Also, if you are looking for a staple dark grey suit, I would not want a ticket pocket or hacking pockets.

What diamond pattern? You mean nailhead?

The 2 pockets is ok, but everything else will make you look like a clown in 2, not 5 years.

Really short jacket body, extra thin lapels, tight legging pants (especially on profile photo), high notches almost over the shoulders. Burn it I say.

What's wrong with hacking pockets? I agree with everything else, but...
