    It's probably less garish in person, but would be tricky to coordinate shirt/tie with.

    That's a going-out suit at best.

    That's pretty loud, especially for an Isaia. But is loud your thing?

    I'm guessing it looks better in person when the flannel texture will come to life. If you need a winter suit I say do it.

    hmmm....selection of isaia suits on STP seems a little slim right now. I'd wait, or check the options at ehaberdasher.com / virtualclotheshorse.com for suits in your size.

    Pretty loud.
    I like pinstripes but the contrast on these is too harsh and too closely spaced.

    Actually I do think a lot of the harshness is due to jaggies from the jpeg compression. But nonetheless, stripes that close are going call some attention.

    Can you get a matching violin case to go with it?
