Only you can really tell if the styling is OK. Do you like it? If so, and the measurements work, then it is a great price on a well made suit. In terms of age, it's not that old judging from the labels, vents and gorge, maybe somewhere between 5-7 years old. Oxxford's modern stuff are on the conservative, old manish side so this is a bit moreso but again, if you like it, it's fine.

The gorge appears to be extremely low in comparison to the shirt collar. If you're fine with the 80's look I'd say you purchase it.

I thought something looked a bit dated on this. As much as I loved the 80's growing up I'll take a pass on the style today.

I didn't end up bidding on it....sold for $55. I wait until I see something that is a bit more contemporary.
