Where can I get (made) such a zany "two-face" suit?

    [​IMG] [​IMG] Now, something as neat as this one might not exist (I've seen suits with different colored arms etc, but nothing quite like this). So, alternatively, where can you get such a suit tailored, and might it be a option to buy two exactly similar albeit differently colored suits, split them in half and sew them together? And yes, I'm on a budget, so the cheaper the better, it has to look good but doesn't need to be made from the "best" fabric.

    Well, I'm sure this is not to everyones taste, but I'd easily rank it as the coolest suit I ever laid my eyes upon.

    Find a bespoke tailor who is a bit down on his luck presently and will compromise his craft for the money.

    Maybe you can ask one of the members of the wardrobe department of "Batman Forever" who is the tailor of Harvey "two faces" Dent

    I'm curious to know where you will be wearing this or for what occasions? Do you plan to use this often? For the most part, fashion is a compromise between what we really want/like to wear and what our social circle/environment allows (not to mention budget, of course). Like George Castanza from Seinfeld, who said that he would fully ensconce himself in velvet... IF it were socially permissible. [​IMG] SoCal is the only one I know who can wear just about whatever he wants, but most of us have other constraints. I daresay I can't think of an occasion to which this will be appropriate, except for a Halloween party.

    If you are near a university with a fashion/design department you might be able to persuade an impoverished undergrad to make something like that, a lot of them seem to make pretty odd stuff already.

    This isn't your first suit, is it?

    Not the same but I remember Brooks Brothers had (maybe has one every year?) a seersucker jacket with four different colors of seersucker.

    It looked pretty good in the way that preppy idiosyncrasies look good in the confines of preppy-ness.

    I swear I wasn't trying to sound affected or pretentious just now.

    Secure the role of Harvey Dent in the next Batman movie. They'll give you that suit for free.
