    My favorite quote in describing this suit is: "It is a BASIC 4 button single breasted pinstripe dress suit." Certainly, the BASIC 4 button single breasted is a staple of my wardrobe. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....70&rd=1

    "100% poly." I imagine sitting next to a roaring fire place, sipping a nice bourbon, only to notice, to my horror, that my suit has started to melt.

    I'd buy but, apparently, the shirt is not included.

    Was just gonna say that -- the shirt not being included is the deal breaker for me.

    The real problem is that all of the buttons are closed in the photo, which makes the jacket look tight in the chest. Really, the lapel is intended to roll to the third button.

    Maybe one of us should e-mail the wardrobe person for "The Sopranos"--maybe they could use it... [​IMG]

    Actually, they mentioned Vestimenta in one episode (season 2) when the crew ripped off a truck delivering high end suits. Lance, try to beat that for a deal.

    I've looked at the stuff from Lucky86 before - they always have a ton of crappy quality suits available. If I really wanted one though, I'd head over the Indoor Swapmart here in Phoenix, there's a booth there that sells brand new fashion suits just like these for $99. [​IMG]

    Single breasted, peak lapel with a ticket pocket. What's wrong with it? [​IMG]
