    On a recent business trip to Montreal, I picked up a Paul Smith London "Luxury" suit -- bold navy pinstripe, dual vents, flat front trousers.

    I'd seen relatively few Paul Smith suits before, and was rather impressed.  I was wondering what the forum thought of this line in terms of construction, style, fit, etc. , and whether anyone could tell me more about who does his suits, materials, and so on.  I'm particularly interested in opinions on whether I overpaid -- roughly 1200 American dollars (after currency converison, tax rebate, etc.)

    I've had a navy w/ yellowish green pinstripe for about a year. Very nice off the rack suit. Mine has worn very well and drapes nicely. Cut a material is great. I love the details (ticket pocket, hand stitched lapels). It may not be an Oxxford, but is a great, stylish suit. Enjoy...
