ok so its not the classic cut, and im likely to be lynched on general principle for this, but i quite like it. If you got the pants that match as you say, then you have uncovered yourself a great deal for your prom. At this price I would have bought it too. And...there is also a distinct possibility that you have uncovered a gem - it does happen. There is a whole thread here dedicated to bragging about it. Hardie Amies is one of those labels that could either be absolutely terrific or absolute crap. Either way, you could almost certainly flip it onto eBay at a profit over your $7. Hopefully the cloth has a nice texture to it, this is important, but the quality of construction and so forth I wouldnt get too caught up in if I were you. It's likely every bit as good as something you would have otherwise rented, and especially since in all likelihood this may well be a single-use item - your body shape and disposable income will change a lot between your prom and your next black tie event. The guys here will torment you like hell for not having a single button peak lapel jacket - and they are absolutely right, this isnt a classic cut of dinner suit - but get the fit right on it, accessorise it well with your shirt, tie, cufflinks, vest and pocket square and you will be way ahead of the vast majority of ppl at your prom. Hell you will be way ahead of the vast majority of ppl at the Oscars. HOWEVER...before you get too carried away....prepare yourself to spend all the money you just saved at the tailor, as fit absolutely is the important part. Id recommend firstly posting a wide array of pics here, the guys will slice and dice you from every angle (prepare your self esteem, it's for your own good). Then, take this advice and go see a tailor - it will be valuable background for the discussions you have and the questions you ask - see what the tailor says. Basically I would walk in and say to the guy "make this fit me like it was designed for no one else" and see how he responds. Ideally he should be fussing over every little detail of it. If he is not, go to a different tailor. Repeat until you are happy and comfortable. Then post more pics...repeat. Enjoy your prom Matt oh and PS - sometime in our teens, we all learned the hard way that trying to match a jacket to pants doesnt work - and i know people who paid a lot more than $7 to find out.
