    Nice. On the iPhone pics, try tapping on a lighter-colored portion like your shirt or face. It'll focus and adjust the exposure to the brightness of that area, and leave the cardigan dark. Then you can go in with an editor and bump up the brightness and contrast if it comes out too dark to see details.

    yes its woman's, but none of the mens cuts are too flattering , so the woman's cut might be more slimming.

    Ok, let's give this a try:

    All of yesterday's talk about hf boardroom suits (ok, like three posts, but that'd be a lot in almost any other thread) makes this apt.

    Vintage hf boardroom. Fall winter wool, tight pinstripe, single breast, single vent, flat front. Full canvas (feels like, anyway). Half lined jacket. Incredibly well constructed and fits me well, so it makes a great travel suit (I.e., I don't care if it gets folded to hell and stored in luggage for days, or if it got lost/stolen by tsa). All thrifted, btw. Shirt is CT black label bought on Ebay; shoes are TBNY, thrifted by me.

    By the way, I'm well aware that I've committed at least three cardinal sins here (suit without tie, no square, slip ons with suit). My adversary will be in jeans, and I need to go through security later tonight. So this was a compromise with life. No apologies! (No, seriously; I apologize and repent).

    And, yes, my BB takes crappy pictures.

    Edit: Redid the pics so the orientation is correct. Sorry.

    I have this exact suit here,half canvassed made by Cantarelli I believe. Not a bad pickup, if mint shape, should get 50 - 70bucks or so on the Bay. Being ventless would be the biggest issue moving it. I have had mine for a year now and decided rather than sell it, use it as a beater suit. Actually, to be perfectly honest, it is laying at bottom of a cardboard box waiting for me to eventually pull it out and offer to someone for $10.
