    For someone young and slim, maybe.

    1. its cotton, which is awfully casual for a business environment.

    2. why do you insist on trying to buy clothes that look painted on? This look may work ok in a fashion advertisement, but its simply not logical, comfortable, or practical for every day work wear.

    I didn't notice it was cotton, in which case I wouldn't advise it for a professional environment.

    Also, HB is hardly SF approved. At that price point, you can do much better quality wise.

    Not pro. I also find the jacket length too short, unless it is the proportions of the model they used which is throwing off the balance. A pro suit jacket does not reveal a mans butt.

    Even that is questionable.

    I wouldn't wear that to work. Perhaps it would work for a fancy night club or something like that. Still, I cant see my self paying 800 for a boss suit.

    Not in the slightest. Entirely the wrong cut/cloth/style.

    I agree with the jacket being short and it may look good on the model but if you're getting that suit make sure you have a similar built.

    Totally, no one will bat an eyelid. Now you might be better off with a wool suit that is not as shoddily made but, yeah, would be fine. People here work at IGent inc and have a hissy fit when their colleague wear the wrong shade of magenta ties.

    They're not going to laugh at you or fire you, but even many non-iGents will have the vague sense that you look ridiculous, puerile, and unprofessional, even if they can't say why.
