    Seems pretty good to me..fully canvassed for a price that I can pay.

    However I am worried about the style. I want something to last (3-5 years) and I am a little concerned about the unusual look of the lapels. The fit of McQueen suits have always been perfect for me, so that isnt a problem. Should I get it?

    I do not like the lapels. Or the center vent. Or the flap pockets. Or the length. Or the square fronts.

    In fact there is nothing right with it.

    It does not even have trousers to match it - let no one suggest that trousers not made from the same cloth will work.

    Don't buy one and if you are given one - burn it.

    Lapels look like they are faced with Batsuit material. Also, two buttons, flap pockets...and to me buttoning point looks high.

    I was looking for something a little more special rather than entirely traditional..

    There's

    Well the parts of that that aren't traditional are that it doesn't fit the model well, has two buttons, and flap pockets. I consider all of these to be defects, but if you like them, go ahead.
