What "era" does this suit appear to be from?

Is this a recent model suit?

It seems to look fairly traditional to me. The button positions are lower than I would prefer, but not out of the realm of the ordinary.

Looks wearable to me.

Nothing dated about it, a standard 2-button cut.

I agree. In fact, wouldn't you say it is more likely to have been made in the past 3 or 4 years? I think it likely because (1) it's listed as practically unworn, (2) the gorge is pretty darn high, especially when compared with this maker's models from more than 5 years ago, (3) the breast pocket is also high. These details strike me as more recent vintage. But I could be wrong.

Definitely wearable, but looks like it might be from the mid-early 90's? I'm no expert, and I only base that decision on the button stance and gorge. The bottom button is a tad low (starting just below the pockets), and the top button is relatively close to the bottom. Shows lots of tie. The shape of the lapels are beautiful, and the breast pocket is placed well. Looks like an excellent suit. Happy bidding

It just looks a little weird because the bottom button is done up. It looks to me to be a classic cut, or at least an inoffensive one.

Who makes it, Hickey Freeman maybe? It's perfectly wearable.

Good guess, Andrew, but . . . . yes. :/ Still deciding whether to bid, and how much.

I like the subtle plaid. Overall finishing looks fantastic to me...
