The color is darker than the picture shown, which is what I wanted. The suit runs a little larger than normal, but like most suits has to be tailored to fit. It cost about *** bucks *** to tailor the jacket and pants, but it was worth it. It is the best fitting suit I have had. Afterwards I bought many brand name suits, and even another tailored made suit (when I was overseas) and none of them still come close to the fitting as this one. I brought the brand name suits to the same tailor where I got this suit tailored, and even then it still does not fit as good as this suit. Like I said before the sit does run a little wide on the shoulders and baggy in the pants. I guess it's how Italian suits are made. The good news is that the extra material leaves room to adjust the suit when being tailored. Also the pants rides right below the waist which is also what I prefer (low rise pants make me look shorter and disproportionate). The material of the suit itself is pretty good, so don't expect it to be like cashmere or thick like some brand names. The sewing seems pretty good and has held up well for a year or two now. The suit is still durable, but it seems as if the canvas maybe fused (which is normal on low priced suits). Definitely better than those crappy suits in Downtown LA. I would definitely recommend this suit as a first suit. The low cost will help leave some money so you can experiment and figure out how you want your suit tailored. It will take a few tries before you figure out how you would like your suit to look and fit you. Also find a good tailor, definitely worth the extra price.
