    Good evening,

    I have this (http://www.paulsmith.co.uk/shop/pau...t-suit-the-byard-pdxl-9756-r20-2/product.html), this (http://www.ahfashion.com/Double_Breasted_Suits/2322 - a Hugo Boss suit... this was the closest picture I could find to what I have, mine has been tailored), and an Isaia suit that looks like this (http://img225.imageshack.us/img225/1842/yfyf20080602reqv3.jpg). The Paul Smith 40L suit fits beautifully and is my favourite suit, hands down.

    I just recently started working full time, and need a couple of more suits. Workplace isn't overly conservative, but is definitely business formal setting. This is the list I've been looking at: http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/Categories.

    I like:

    1) http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/the-13064/Benjamin-Sartorial-Suit-cln--39L-fdsh-40L/Detail

    2) http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/the-12944/Caruso-Suit-cln--39L-fdsh-40L/Detail

    3) http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/the-12940/Caruso-Suit-cln--41L/Detail

    4) http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/the-7752/Caruso-Suit-cln--39L-fdsh-40L/Detail

    ** I also like this, but doesn't make sense buying this as a workhorse suit (and I always associated tan with spring/summer, yet this one is wool) http://www.ehaberdasher.com/servlet/the-13606/Ralph-Lauren-Suit-cln--39L-fdsh-40L/Detail

    Any input is appreciated gentlemen! Not opposed to buying two, perhaps a navy and mid grey.

    Cheers,
    Chris

    Heads up if you wear a 40L, Caruso suits are cut notoriously short.

    Maybe part of the reason I like it.

    Definitely on the edge, but it still fucking amazing, so I'd say go for it.

    The other reason for the hesitation is all the grey flannel suits I already have

    Sure, it's too light if you want to look like everyone else. But, it's magnificent, like something out of Apparel Arts. Buy it without hesitation.

    The RLPL shirt, the gray trousers, brown cardigan, brown suede belt, purple tie and AE strands. What do you guys think about the combination?
