Is this suit appropriate

I just bought this Isaia suit. It fits great, but I was wondering about the pattern and color for v10 law in Boston. Its a dark greyish-blue with a grey pencil stripe. The firm is fairly conservative--I know navy and charcoal are always safe but is this suit work appropriate in a fairly conservative firm? Thanks for all your help, and its not too late to return it so don't hold back.

yes, it is suitably conservative and appropriate.

Thanks bjm. Grimslade, your question sounds like a trap
so i'll say its a US 56S, and await your response.

In that case, it's perfect. Nice job, nice suit. Don't worry.
Had it been a EUR 54R, OTOH...

I'm trying to think of the stupid boss who'd be mad at his employee for wearing this suit and I just can't imagine it. Maybe some anti-pocket square guy...

Thanks for all your help. Thats quite a load off because it fit nicely off the rack and the price couldn't be beat. Now the only question remains how do I tell my wife she was wrong (1) email her this thread (2) get some friends together and have a staged reading of the thread with wine and hors d'oeuvres when she comes home (3) blow up a picture of the suit and put it over the bed in a gold rococo frame.

I'll go with choice #3, Alex...

Not for CBD, only for UCBD.

IMO the OP's suit is very lawyerly.

I couldn't imagine an environment where something like this would not be conservative enough.
