    Have you ever worn Isaia, Bill? It makes you feel like a democrat.[​IMG]

    Well, that's a nice piece of clothing if you go with it. Wear it in health, bro.

    Lovely suit. Assertive, but not brash. A little bit fashion forward, with that width lapel . . . if you watch those fluctuations closely, and if lapel widths are important to you . . . perhaps you won't be altogether happy with this purchase, in the long run. Those details don't bother me. If a garment has integrity, and this one has . . . it was porportioned right, when it was designed. For me, that's all that matters. I would buy it.

    The lapels are a little wide for my taste, but the fabric looks great and you can't argue with the price.

    You're a 38? I thought I saw a picture of you and you looked bigger... Anyway, it's a nice suit, but I'll agree with chorse in that the lapels are a little wide for my tastes.

    Jovan: There's nothing "wrong" with DBs. Just a matter of taste for me. Something about the look doesn't appeal to me. For one thing, they don't look good unbuttoned (and an SB does). And, when they are buttoned, they look constricting. Just one man's taste.

    Yeah I'm a 38, if you think I looked bigger it was just my ego. [​IMG]

    I, too, think the lapels a bit wide. But it's a gorgeous set of threads. And maybe walking around feeling like a Democrat would be a nice change for you whnay. [​IMG]

    Didn't you have an avatar at one point with a DB suit and a red tie?
