This is a very simple test. I put this up today for opinions.

I have always liked this suit. However, it has inspired from the most ugly venom, to praise. I even sold it once, to have it return to me.....so maybe it is fate.

So, what is your honest opinion? Is this a baller suit, or should I ball it up and light it on fire?

Please, give me honest feedback!

Oh, since I know it will land over where I am quite popular, and can't defend myself, I added a caption.

Mike

I can't imagine a situation where it would be appropriate attire. Where were you planning to wear it, OP?

It's a very Retro cloth, redolent of the 30's/40's to my eye. I think the lapels need a bit of cosmetic surgery, shape the waist a little, this would help to bring the cut up to date a bit. ...and by the way. I don't suck balls, not even salty ones..

Mike is in New Orleans, a city built for sin not for sobriety.

To me it seems like too much of an FU suit -- which, I guess, goes well with the caption.

If you often find yourself chairing mob summits or hostile takeovers, then it's probably fine. On the other hand, if you don't own a Tommy gun, you should probably ditch the suit.

It has a "presence" the same way that many loud and colorful plaids do. In some settings and when you are in the right mood they can be right. If you don't mind being the visual centerpiece then keep it.

I don't mind the cloth, its retro, it is what it is. he just needs to tune up the cut a little and it could be great in a fuck you daddy-o kinda way. Y'dig, blood?

Don't burn it! My name is Mike and if you are going to burn it might as well send it to me because we have similar names.
