    Hi all,

    I'm thinking of buying this suit, but there are some features of the suit that makes me worried that it won't last the test of time. First, the fact that it's a very slim suit with a thin lapel make me worried that I can't wear this in 5-10 years. Also, the diamond pattern, two slits on the lapel, and the double pockets on the right side are all things that I personally like because I believe it gives the suit character, but again I'm worried that it won't be something I can wear for a long time. So, what are your thoughts?

    Thanks for your opinions in advance! :)

    Hmm, the color description is "charcoal." I want a darker grey suit because I look like a clown in light grey for some reason. Also, I already have navy, black, grey, and beige suits, so I thought this color would be a nice addition.

    Anyway, any opinions on the double pockets on the right, diamond pattern, and the button holes on the lapel? Is that something that might look weird in 5 years?

    The lapels and the length don't bode well for the future. Also, if you are looking for a staple dark grey suit, I would not want a ticket pocket or hacking pockets.

    What diamond pattern? You mean nailhead?

    The 2 pockets is ok, but everything else will make you look like a clown in 2, not 5 years.

    Really short jacket body, extra thin lapels, tight legging pants (especially on profile photo), high notches almost over the shoulders. Burn it I say.

    What's wrong with hacking pockets? I agree with everything else, but...
