Hello,
Next month I will be starting my first job soon and I am looking for a suit. The suit below appeals to me very much and I would be grateful for some advice. Can the authenticity of the suit be determined by the pictures? Does the suit look fitting for a conservative business environment? (bank)
I look forward to getting some feedback.

Looks fine for business. I’ll let someone else vouch for its authenticity.

100% authentic

I'm estimating that it's approximately at least 15 years old, however Attolini tends to be timeliness and it doesn't look dated. I have some more recent Zegna & Kiton that "looks" more dated.

You might be inclined to purchase because it's a great suit (it is), but be sure that the measurements are on point with respect to your body.

I would not. The jetted pockets look very odd. If you don't already have navy and charcoal suits with flap pockets, notch lapels and no funny business then get those first. I assume this suit isn't cheap, so if you're just starting out get something cheaper first until you have a good feel for how you like your suits to fit.

The jetted pockets for me look fine. If you like the look of the suit, go for it. All jetted pockets mean is that they're a bit more formal.

I can guarantee you that 99% of the population would not care at all if you had flap or jetted pockets.

Whether you want to start cheap or start with Attolini is a very personal decision, and at the end of the day it's up to you.

Are the pockets something that could be altered if they ended up bothering me? The measurements are a really good fit.

You can't go from jetted to flap. Again, the pockets aren't a problem. Don't get paranoid.

It looks fine. Don’t alter anything unless it’s for fit.
