    The latter. I find the longer cut is always more practical- and I think it looks better.

    yfyf is carrying off a similar pattern quite nicely. Personally, I'm not liking the bellied lapel, but that's my .02

    The pattern on this suit is... I don't know, I'm torn between "too awesome for words" and "tacky". My wish to experiment with wearing suits outside of a business environment may be getting the better of me. Input needed. Talking off the ledge? Encouragement and cheerleading? That I leave to styleforum.

    OPINIONS NOW.


    Really like the pattern, those are some great lapels too, especially since its double breasted, they fold over nicely. It's only tacky if you wear it with more extravagant/flashy clothing, which would give me the indication that you're trying to stand out and be a one man show instead of just trying to dress well and to your persona/body.

    One thing though, you do seem to wear a lot of black and white, I think a suit like this calls for some light browns, greys and creams. From my experience black and white makes any odd or interesting colours/patterns stand out immensly. So aside from the fit and suit itself, what can compliment the suit is probably something to consider.

    I'm sure that's a nice suit, but do you like Brioni's clean, sharp, kofi annan vibe?

    Also, fit on DBs is so much harder than fit on SBs, IMO. I'm wary of buying DBs online.

    is that a brioni or just a brioni hanger? you are all over the place with your suits; dries, hickey, and brioni are generally going to fit totally different. ok, you know this, but it bears repeating. personally, i'd run away from this one fast.

    Haven't bought the hickey yet but it would be more of a work suit. This is not work appropriate, nor is the Dries Van Noten. This suit itself isn't Brioni, that's just the hanger, but it is high quality nonetheless.

    I dunno, I mean, I know you've worn snakeskin shoes, so you know what you like, but a DB in that pattern for casual wear just doesn't seem right to me.

    I shall take that under advisement. Though others are all "go for it" so I'm still at a loss. I feel like I could hardly wear it any other way besides casually; it's not going to fly in a law office. I'm thinking various patterned / colour shirts, no tie (though tie possible)... but I am still contemplating if it will be a buyer's remorse situation. I guess that might be a hint that it will... although who knows maybe I'll love it, that's happened before too. Meh, I'm torn.

    Been wanting this NdG jacket since I saw it, but I'm not sure if I should kop this or buy a different coat. Apparently the rubberized coating is suppose to crack over time, to give it an aged look.... though I'm not exactly sure what the final product looks like. I have to assume it's dope though.

    I don't know how I feel about the cracking, seems like it would ruin the integrity of the jacket. It does look sick though.
