    It looks like a charcoal with orange stripes. It's a beautiful suit and good value, but not very versatile.

    That being said, if you like it, buy it. Wouldn't hurt to have it in your rotation down the road.

    Thanks a lot for your answer othertravel .
    I posted the picture of the colour of the suit if you want to take a look :)
    Is it a good value ? I know it isn't as easy to wear as a plain suit but seems easy to wear anyway :)

    I Understand your point the problem is that there is no bargains and sales such as in the US in France ... So 600 euros / 800 dollars for a Brioni super 150 suit seemed to me like a good deal

    I just need the working cuffs done by a tailor . What do you think ( There are pictures of the suit posted on the forum)

    I don't know if I would buy that for my first interview/sole suit bit it is a good deal and should look nice once pressed. Have you tried Brionis on? Are you sure about the fit? Mine is rather slim.

    Yes, do go for it

    No one will turn their head because it is a pinstripe suit....

    Do not listen to the ignorant SF group whom have ultra high prespective clothing sense

    That applies to trainees and old asses in the business

    Plus it sound like a good deal, especially if you are certain about the fit

    Hi again KObalto :)

    I had a vintage Brioni suit that fitted me perfectly ... I am so sad I ripped the pants but it had almost 30 years of age but I am still keeping the jacket it is beautifully made :)


    The thing is this would not only be an interview suit but an everyday suit as well the problem is I do not know how much more I should pout on this price to get the cuffs done ... And also if the jacket is too long .

    How would you classify the Barbera - Cifonelli and Isaia suits compared to the Brioni ones ? I know Brioni is higher but I needed to know that as well :)

    Thank you again

    Hi there and thanks a lot for your kind advices

    The length of the sleeves , the waist and length of the pants are perfect , the chest is a little large but just a little I can bear with that (I am a 21"-21.5" chest and this one is 22") The only problem will be the length of the jacket which is 33 inches from the top of the collar to the bottom of the jacket ... I will maybe find it a little long . A part from that everything is fine

    I really fail to see why a pinstripe or chalkstripe suit aren't an interview suit

    I mean both pattern are definitely classic men's choice

    Or is it just I am from a different background?

    Nice suit, but not for an interview....

    If it doesnt fit, you must quit

    Hi there

    I am trying my best to answer you via the forum , but as I am a new on the forum my comments are moderated ... I loose plenty of messages through this moderation.

    So I am pretty sure about the fitting. Tu put it in a nutshell :

    I am sure about : The sleeves length and shoulders width . The pants waist and length
    I am less sure about the jacket length (32-33 inches) and the chest (22" laid flat I am more 21-21.5)

    Thanks again for your help

    No need to attack people trying to give advice to the OP. The main point for an interview suit is that you look nice and your clothes not be a distraction. You can wear something like this and hope you don't interview with "old asses" or get something more conservative and not worry. It doesn't matter until it does.
