Are window pane suits totally over?

Is it just me, or are window pane suits over?

I keep seeing suits from fine Neapolitan tailors at good prices, and they never seem to sell. I know there's a recession and all that, but I think it's just because the pattern is a fad that is looking dated already.

What say you?

Yes, all the f*ing poseurs bought them. Same with stylish plaid pants.

Maybe I live in a cave, but I was not aware that they had been en vogue in the first place. They've been around for a long time, and so they shall stay. But if you are correct, then you might as well buy in now so that you can be ready when they "come back" in 20 years.

I'm waiting for someone to get a windowpane made up going horizontally rather than vertically.

Who will be the first?

With just the right pattern-matching, you could even get a double-wide.
