I don't know what your source is but ask 10 tailors at random what they think a "besom" pocket is and get back to us.

I have taken CBD to new levels of greatness (drabness) in recent weeks.

Not uniquely - you had on a tan suit in late September, IIRC. CONSERVATIVE? I'm not sure.

Ok, let's say you are interviewing for a conservative firm, how non-conservative can you dress and not look like a jerk? How about a gray, or navy windowpane suit, white shirt, solid tie? Yay, or nay?

Windowpane for an interview strikes me as a seriously bad idea. Certainly, it is not CBD.

How about a solid gray, however... wait for it... SB PEAKED LAPELS?

SB peak lapel isn't CBD? Where does it fall then? At a minimum it is more formal than the notch.
