lol, i should have offered that, but i thought it would be rude. i offered 350 and they accepted.

Well, regardless, that's a great price for a sweet jacket.

Can you please tell me if this suit is fits right?  Is it OK?

First set of photos are jacket buttoned,  second set is jacket open.  

Please excuse the fact that nothing is hemmed, basting threads not removed, etc.

Any advice most gratefully appreciated!!
 

Also--if there is a better thread to ask this--please re-direct me, thank you.

michaelyork,

try pics with shoes.

a quick look, the suits are ok.the pants are kind of baggy , though thats compared to modern cuts.
 

post #9266 of 14947

@sparrow    Yes, the pants are baggy!  It's Ralph Lauren purple label from 2010, and the guy at the store assured me that the styles don't change, that is 2008's cut is identical to 2010 to 2012.  I suppose I could alter the pants, but I really don't want to go questioning Ralph Lauren's wisdom.

 

Yes, I should post pics with hemmed pants, jacket vents unstitched (it hugs otherwise instead of hanging freely), etc.  But I first need to know if this is a keeper.

 

Also, I am 30.  I work in banking.  I would use this for average occasions (not special occasions, but not a slum-day with no client meetings).

 Is this an old guy suit?

ime, RLPL even now does not have a very modern/ultra slim cut.

1.  FWIW, "the guy at the store" (you say it is from 2010, so I assume "the guy at the store" is not a RL SAis wrong. RLPL cuts do change, particularly based on the actual maker, and RLPL is getting slimmer by the season (F/W 2012 was particularly slim for RLPL, not Black Label slim, but slimmer than past RLPL).  Custom fit has also been around for a bit, which is a more aggressive cut.  That said, you can always have the pants narrowed if you'd like, not a big deal.

 

2.  We don't know what you paid for it so can't comment on value, but I'd say it's a keeper bearing in mind that some alterations need to be made (inter alia, chest could be cleaned up some imho).  If you decide otherwise, PM me as it might be my size.

 

3.  Good to know.  Also good to know.  Ok.

 

4.  No.  Notwithstanding, who gives a shit, as: (1) it is a very, very well made suit; (2) it appears to fit you pretty well now and will almost surely fit quite well once altered; and (3) you like it.
