wow that's a blatant ripoff/homage. I wish the model didnt have a popped collar tho, would like to see it just normal. The price is hella lot better, about 1/3 of ThomBrowne

Bingo. Nothing but an ill-sized suit.

I checked out the suit at the store today. It fits quite nice, very slim, but not narrow like Dior. But the jacket has four buttons, wtf! and it is fused cost about HKD17000

Or why not go to a Thrift Store and get suits like this for $10.00!!!!!!

I'm not kidding, Thrifts are filled with short suits like these with thin lapels, center vents, slim cut, and flat front pants.

Giorgio Armani supposedly got his inspiration from the classics of the 1930's, and that seems very accurate.

Did Thom Browne get his inspiration from the 1950's look of GGG, Kuppenheimer, Richman Bros., etc.? Sure looks like it!
