Like I said I have 3 suits. 1 is full canvas and I think it is well worth the extra money. But the half-canvas is very nice as well. I have had my oldest black lapel suit for 4 months. I wear it once a week or once every week an a half. My other 2 are a little newer but I wear them just as often and they all look brand new. People still ask me if I got a new suit.
