    Hello all,

    I just purchased this Tom James Filo A Mano suit from ebay and I just got it in. I am a little concerned that the pinstripes are too bold. See the pictures below. What do you think? I am at work so I cannot send pictures but it fits pretty well, I just need to make some minor adjustments.

    Too bold with what end in mind?
    If you do not like it, then they are.
    If you are referring to fit for work, I do not know your profession.
    It is a bit difficult for me to get the spot on idea of the look, in terms of the stripes,
    from the two pics. Too close and too far. Or maybe this screen has poor resolution.
    I like the look, actually. Of course, it has to fit you properly to make that leap to usefulness.
    And I do not know what you expected when you bought it.
    I do not care for the tie in combo, honestly.

    If you're questioning them then they probably are. I'll say this, the stripes are different.

    To me it's fine, but if you're uncomfortable in wearing bolder pinstripes then tough louck since you also bought it in ebay, and unfortunately don't accept refunds.

    It is a little off the beaten path, but I say wear it with pride. Pinstripes don't get enough love on SF.

    Too bold for what exactly?

    Looks like a nice bit of schmutter to my uneducated eye. :slayer:
