The Rabbi had said he wanted to look out at a 'sea of white' for Yom Kippur, no doubt to reflect our level of repentance rather than simply our sense of fashion. So I was a little conflicted when I ordered this suit, not so much because the price was practically a steal, but maybe because it was a bit 'too nice' for a day that is the antithesis of materialism. There is this idea of adding to the 'beauty' of an observance, though, and it was on that aspect where this natural linen suit shined, off-white enough to not ostentatiously proclaim 'purity' and yet fine enough to be really appreciated for its quality. The fit was perfect and I received many compliments, even one from the Rabbi. (Btw: a combination of linen and cotton, no wool, so not shatnez although if you are *that frum perhaps you should have it tested.) My only complaint: somewhere stuck under the left armpit was a price tag I had not seen and therefore had not cut off. I would have been even more embarrassed when this was pointed out to me (I had just come off the bimah) except that the tag I had missed had the full price on it, not nearly what I had actually paid! Hysterical! Even so, maybe you could not hide that tag underneath the arm and rather put it out where all the other conspicuously placed tags were found (and removed).
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
