    Pretty cool. Reminds me of the Carroll & Company linings. Looks like a MTM suit that was rejected by the customer and bought from the clearance store.

    I like it and even think it's somewhat conservative compared with many 'fancy' linings.

    I would agree that it is probably an unwanted MTM so the fit could perhaps be somewhat idiosyncratic.

    In my opinion, the lining has to complement or relate to the suit fabric in some way. Do you gentlemen think this is the case here?

    I think the paisley coordinates up well with the color of the suit. I usually don't like fancy linings, but I think that it works for that suit. If the measurements work for you, you should definantely go for it IMHO.

    EDIT- I just noticed that the seller didn't include any measurements. So that changes my assessment completely. I wouldn't get it. It could have some strange features.

    I think one of the minor colors in the paisley matches well with the suit. It coordinates.

    I'd ask the seller for measurements - he's provided them to me in the past. I think it's very frustrating that he doesn't do them for all the listings, but there you have it.

    Can't the lining be replaced with relative ease?
