ahhh... just want some feedback it's not an interview just informal meet and greet with some attorneys in korea maybe a lunch meeting or two this is my best fitting and best looking suit not wearing that shirt in the picture (i just bought some nicer dress shirts from brooks brothers... the slim fit egyptian cotton ones)
(DIRTY MIRROR)
it's slim fitting with narrow lapels i did not buy this suit with the intention of wearing it in a conservative legal work environment but this opportunity to meet and talk about possibility of working in korea came up last minute not sure if i should just wear it ... or if i could dust off one of my older, worse fitting boxy gray 3/2 button suit do you think people will notice? too trendy? i don't want to make a bad impression... but what is worse? looking too trendy? or looking like i borrowed my dad's suit?

i can't really tell, but from the picture it looks like there are some spots on it, stains perhaps? maybe the lighting brought it out, but if its unnoticeable i would go for it! that's an awesome suit, matches perfectly.

It's fine. Wear whichever suit you feel more comfortable and confident in.

The suit is fine, but I would wear two black shoes instead of one black and one dog.

the belt and shoes in the pictures ARE brown
but i guess it's hard to tell from these pics
the belt you can see the color better in the half body shot

if i can find a decent pair of black captoes tomorrow, i think i'll just buy them
black shoes = a little more conservative

The suit looks good! Definitely get some black shoes to wear with it. After your trip/meeting, see if you can take in the sleeves a bit. They look a little full compared to the rest of the suit.

the sleeves bunch up a lot in the back ... so i dunno what i should do
maybe narrowing the sleeves will make it not bunch up as much?
i'll consult a tailor ... after i find one i want to build rapport with


just bought myself a pair of black captoe balmorals (first time using this word) at nordstrom rack
bruno magli's ... yeah not exactly my first choice
but i'm in a hurry and it was VERY comfortable
unlike many other shoes i've been trying on that cut into my ankle bone on the right foot

this is how they look
