Frame of Reference: I work for a 50 Year Old American technology firm, very old school. My position is outdoor sales in Manhattan which entails each season of extreme weather; sweaty summers of 90 degree subway platforms and winters trekking through dirty slush. I have a handful of elegant, well fitting suits and a couple modern suits. However, I'm looking to tailor to the boring old school managers by bridging an American classic. It's not my style, will take time to get use to the longer politician suit jacket. Is this suit serviceable for $195 + $40 waist suppression & $30 sleeves thinning. In my search I saw a sleek Ralph Lauren by Corneliani grey pinstripe at Saks 5th that may be $490 after Christmas, felt like an exoskeleton but it seemed too loud & too fashion forward to roam the office & pavement guilt-free about. A 40r, a 39 had my biceps protruding.
