I think this fabric only works for a sport coat and not a particularly compelling one either.
Thanks for the feedback guys. Im not married to the fabric so i just wanted to get some opinions on it. I have a few other fabrics I might use and Ill post those in just a bit.
This, fabric could work as a jacketing at best but I wouldn't make a coat out of it not to mention a suit.
This would make an awesome suit. I would do a SB with peak lapel 3r2 and patch pockets. If you went DB it would look very dated. Post the results when you go through with it.
You can't be seriously considering the fabric for a suit? and for a conservative environment.
I wouldn't use this for SB or DB.
I have to agree. I can't see myself walking around in the office in this suit.
I think you could pull it off as a suit.
If you time traveled back to 1973.
I'd do a suit in this, but I'm in a far from conservative environment.
You'd have to go all they way FU with that.
2b, sb, side vents, peak lapels, light brown horn buttons, patch pockets, 5cm cuffs, side adjusters, etc.
I'm interested in what shoe you'd wear with this?
Gents thanks for your opinions, I have decided that it is too much and I went a different route...
I was on the fence and I got enough reasons to not get it so thanks sf
This is the fabric I ended up getting:
I got it as a double breasted 6X2
This I can see working as a fun suit to wear on an evening out or on more casual sort of days. I have a similarly jazzy tramline myself (though as an SB). Much prefer this to the original fabric for a suit.
so much better than the previous one.
