    The more I read here, the more I think I am not so fashion... I try to maintain a conservative front with a little flair for a sales job. Am I kidding myself when I think these are attractive suits?? Be honest... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Not bad at all. Love the windowpane. So, you're a fan of the narrow pinstripe, hmm? [​IMG]

    they all appear to be classic, well-cut suits-- yet not 'old man' or anything too old fashioned. great suit wardrobe.

    these are great suits, keep it up. love the stripes (have a db 3 piece in very similar fabric) love the window pane (would love to have one but not a good fabric for me).

    might not be fashinable, but very stylish

    what do you sell, by the way?

    very nice. I like the narrow pin-stripe, even though I don't have one. quick question - what is the difference between #2 and #3? or are they the same suit?

    yes, my error. suit #1 is RL, heavy wool. Suits #2,#3 are the same, two button Paul Staurt, suit #4 is Paul Stuat window pane, heavy wool.

    They are all nice suits. I especially like the RL (purple label). The narrow chalkstripe is eally cool without trying too hard. I like the Paul Stuart pinstripe as well, but would've chosen a slightly more contrasted pinstripe, to be honest. Same with the windowpane. And from the RL and Paul Stuart cuts I've seen, I think that I would much prefer the former.

    I think you're getting exactly what you're going for: conservative with a bit of flair. That said, perhaps I'm biased because I own suits with nearly identical material [​IMG]

    I'm starting to think oldskool is pulling our collective legs, and is just fishing for compliments. Has he posted a questionable item yet?

    They are all nice, but I don't think the pictures do justice to the quality of the fabrics on all the suits (They look amazing as it is).

    If I was being pickey, I dont like the one with squares on it; simply because I don't like suits with squares on it. (The reason being that, not so much the design aspect of squares/windowpane, but the fact that in all my experince most people who wear square suits are dressed badly, obviously that's not the case with you, as its quite a nice suit regardless of the fact it has squares, and also looking at your other suits, its deffinatly not true.)

    Very nice, especially the windowpane.

    Truly awful suit collection. Your ties are awful too. Have you learned nothing from this board?

    By the way, I'll PM you my address -- I know a great place you could send those god awful suits. (What's your size again, BTW?).
