    Can someone list the things that are WRONG with that jacket?

    It would be faster to list the things that are correct I think.

    1. .. .. .

    There, I'm done.

    Ok, perhaps that wasn't so "good-natured". Here's a few of the most egregious to my eye:

    Two colors is just bad.
    Ventless
    2x2 buttoning? It's missing at least 2 buttons on the front, more like 4 missing.
    Dated notch shape
    I don't like the jetted satin-black pockets

    You forgot two:

    - It was featured in a Neiman Marcus store
    - It was originally priced at $1,165.00 (plus tax)
    - It was made in Italy
    - It's designer label is in Paris?

    I thought the back shot pic had a distorted shadow, but i see that it is a two-toned back... :fu:

    My comments on this jacket will have to end there...

    I had to stare at it for a minute to see that it wasn't a blur LOL. But why would you consider such a weird jacket?!

    So I thought I'd post this over here because I read that this is a thread for newbies and I didn't want to clog up the AAQQGAQA thread with an inquiry every couple of weeks:

    Would you rather have a deep deep brown BB 1818 suit in SaXxon wool or a Charcoal Canali suit if primarily choosing based on color & fabric and not fit(Both fit same on me)? I have 3 diff navy, 3 diff charcoal, and 1 dark grey and am deciding between the two. I'd like a brown suit, but I've never owned a Canali before even though they feel very nice & soft - just Brooks 1818, RLBL, & HF.Mahogany. I wear suits often each week so I like a large rotation.

    Thank you for the help :]

    I hope you're talking about the two-toned jacket; and not the teal one... :l

    You just answered your own question. There has to be a Latin term for this..

    Clearly I did not because I would not have asked the question had I answered my own question. I am torn between the two. I only have 3 full-canvas suits, have never owned a Canali before(and would like to) and cannot decide. I have several BB 1818's, which while decent, are not in the same league as Canali so I've read.

    I think instead of being a snarky ass who was reprimanded for taking over the damn Ask a Quick Question thread, you should be a gentleman and mind your manners.

    A gentleman doesn't use ad hominem arguments in order to placate his self serving bias.
