Long suits?

Hey guys,

Recently, I saw some long suits for sale. Think a suit jacket but it comes to about the upper knees with pants to match. I've seen variations in pinstripes and black/navy. What are these suits for? Are they formal wear? They are definetly not overcoats - far too light and thin.

What would you wear something like this to? They're very slim fitting, super suppressed waist. I was quite impressed but never tried it on.

Unless, of course, you happen to be a pimp...

So I'm not the only person who has noticed that!

Here in Australia we see little of the NBA. But we watched as Andrew Bogut got taken as #1 draft pick by the Bucks (it was all over the news) and the suits were all just horrible.

To the OP. Long suits as you mentioned, should never be worn or contemplated.

Although to be fair, there are far more uses than 'just' pimps. Gangster movies perhaps?
