    Super. The lapels are a bit wide. Otherwise, nice

    The shoulders are narrow on the jacket, so make sure the measurements are right for you.

    Looks good to me. I couldn't say how old, but it doesn't look dated or anything. Does look like the lower pockets might be a bit stretched out, but some steam should pop them back.

    Too bad it's center vented. I'd probably have the vent closed.

    I think it's sufficiently 'sporty' that the center vent is perfectly fine. Unvented sport jackets always seem strange to me.

    Nice jacket and you can't go wrong at this price. Like the check.

    I can't see anything that could point out the maker of the suit. Van Laack is known here for making dress shirts (maybe a step down in quality from Corneliani). I didn't know Belvest made for them.
