    it's "versus", which is versace diffusion line. Probably rather average quality and undoubtedly fused.

    Yeah, I know. I meant more about the general style of the suit.

    I like that it's very V-shaped and I like the subtle red tones. The quality is probably infinitely superior to what 99% of the population wears, even if it's not bespoke Attolini forged from the skin of god.

    Pink windowpane on charcoal, quite pimp if I may.

    peaked lapel and high button stance, I think this very particular style (which I like a lot) will get dated pretty quickly because everyone is doing it right now.

    I gotta tell you, I love it. I think that if you don't buy it, I might have to.

    I suck and I'm colorblind.

    I wouldn't worry too much about the style becoming "dated" looking -- it looks good on a very specific body type. If you've got it, go for that sort of thing. It sounds like you're probably built relatively comparably to me, and this is similar to the style that I have favored.

    Obviously if you're working in some sort of dismal sack suit environment, it's not the best thing to wear to the office, but given your posts here I don't imagine you'd be involved in such a field.

    forged from the skin of god

    I imagine a few Italian tailors on a cloud gentling skinning some ancient man and hand-sewing it onto the canvas made from his stomach lining or something. But I hate to think such sacrilegious thoughts. Maybe you should have said "zeus".

    I like the suit a lot too, though I suspect that it will get to be quite expensive.

    In fact, I will be finding out quite shortly whether or not my work environment will allow for suits of this kind. It very well may not, which will be too bad.

    I think the peak lapels style with high two buttons is being done a bit too much. Half of the jackets at H&M on my last visit were of this type (I almost got a linen one but then I noticed that the two vents opened rather defiantly, while the front rested far too forward. I hadn't seen a jacket with this kind of problem before. It's annoying. A lot of stuff looks quite good there, until you look more closely). It's sad that items of men's fashion can look dated when there are so few options to begin with. But with H&M and others doing every trend into the ground right as it is appearing, we're not going to be able to wear much pretty soon. I predict that the demand for customization is going to skyrocket over the next few decades.

    i doubt it. the average american is still a lazy peice of #$%@ who cant wait long enough to have a bespoke suit made for them. especially at the cost. they would rather buy a suit thats two sizes to big from mens warehouse and i dont see it changing any time soon.

    Lydia - I would be weary of buying a suit from the VERSUS line, but other than that I do like it. The cut looks flattering (albeit the stance is a bit too high for my taste)
