It’s a tribute to his early-80s era. Unfortunately, it would look like a costume if you wore it now.

I would wear it on Halloween, but not to the office.

Both models look like they’re cut the same. But the pattern on the SC seems to work better with it.


Keep in mind that if we were working in offices in that era (I was a toddler), we would probably be jumping on that trend as well. Can’t underestimate how influential GA’s look was at the time.

Yeah, hasn’t aged well, though. Trends do come and go and I’m really curious to see where suiting goes post-pandemic, whatever time frame that ends up being.

It doesn't help that the suit doesn't fit the model, the sleeves are too short, and the shoes don't go with the look

Yet another debt-financed takeover debacle...

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
