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.

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.
