The suit is quite contemporary in cut and style with the narrow legs and a slim short jacket - the closing of 4x1 button (four button front of which only 1 button is working) adding to the slender look; especially taken into account that the suit was made for a gentleman aged 58 forty years ago.
The colour and fabric makes the suit quite versatile and gives room for matching different colours of shirts, ties and shoes.
I wear the suit at the office; sometimes with a white shirt, detachable wing collar, a tie and black Oxford shoes; other days with a sky-blue shirt, a paisley bow tie and black brogue shoes.
Today, I went with my green Magnanni shoes; grey spats (which I think looks great with the narrow legs and cuffs - a 1920s look); a blue-striped double cuffed Stenström's shirt and a green untipped vintage silk tie.
|As usual I added brace buttons to the trousers; braces are indispensable|

|Wide, peaked lapels|
|Cream shirt from Tyrwhitt; Shantung silk tie from Drake's; Pocket square from Rubinacci; fur-felt Bowler hat from Christy's; and oxblood shoes from Herring (Drake)|
