    I like the pattern, but size XL ? What selfrespecting tailored clothing has a size like this ? I bet this is some chest-stiff-as-a-board cheap jacket.

    watch out for that grapejuice .

    No problem. That is Faconnable's cheaper line, the quality of the tailoring is pretty poor.

    I have to hand it to this seller though. An excellent writer - their auctions almost put mine to shame.

    For $10 though, it's almost like a jacket one can buy for cheap socializing. If anything happens to it, oh well, no big loss.

    It's also a dash of color which my jacket wardrobe is sadly lacking. You are reading a man who has 4 brown sportcoats, 3 black sport coats, 2 grays, and some other assorted colours.

    So the consensus is not to buy it then. I'll have to keep my finger off the bid button.

    For color, go with Etro.

    A more general question: I'm a three button man myself...The last two-button jacket I wore was some time ago. Is this jacket dated in its look?
