    [​IMG] [​IMG] Single button, low button stance, peak lapel, glenplaid? Â Look at the pockets on the pants...never seen anything like that before. Â I dunno, I kind of like it, kind of hate it. Â Who can wear this, and to where? Your thoughts?

    i like it, and the button stance doesn't look too low to me, at least not in the picture. cool pants.

    Looks like a nice going-out suit to me. Obviously not to any really stuffy event.... The pants make it a suit for someone thin.

    Wear it with a burnt orange wool turtleneck and hang the jacket on the chair while playing chess with your love interest/investigator. Be sure to have split screen effects with you in a dune buggy and then a long scene of you smoking a cigar by yourself, laughing your ass off about your successful heist.

    Personally, I like it. The pockets are a little weird, but you don't see them much anyway.

    Personally, I think it's very cool with some interesting touches. Are the pants pretty fitted around the butt and thighs? I imagine it would be. Looks like something Prada would've copied around 2001 or so.

    Wear it when you are feeling like a real hep cat. BTW, who is the maker anyway?

    Oh, and it helps if you're Steve McQueen.

    I like it, esp. with that shirt and tie combo. Button is definitely not too low for a single-button suit, and the pattern looks fine. Only thing I'm not sure about is those pockets, but the jacket should cover them anyway. I suppose they're more convenient to access while driving than side-pockets.

    hey, that is pretty slick. as someone else pointed out, looks like the small white label on the sleeve that brioni uses-- are we correct? if so, I'd say it is a VERY slick suit, and I bet you'll get lots of complements on it; very mod 60s cool.

    I like the pattern, and I think the jacket looks nice, albeit a little forward. However, the pockets kill the pants for me. I just can't comprehend non-jeans pants with front pockets instead of side ones.

    Hey, you guys are good. Yes, it's Brioni.

    Everyone likes it, huh? Ok then, thanks to your comments, I'm now the new owner of the above suit. Hope I love it. If not, one of you better buy it off me.

    Wear it on your first day of work at the law firm when you drive up in your CLK 430. Â I guarantee that the partners will know who you are rather quickly. [​IMG] I like the suit, but would be concerned about how the color goes with your complexion. Â Let us know how that works out.

    Not hideous. The buttoning point could be higher [​IMG] but definitely not hideous.
