I so wanted to like this suit. The fit was great, the medium blue color was fantastic and the price was reasonable. I even convinced myself that I could live with a 50% wool 50% polyester suit; all my previous suits have been 100% wool. Unfortunately the suit jacket has fake pockets. I carefully tried to remove the stitches in the breast and side pockets that manufacturers put in to keep the pockets smooth during shipping. I noticed the stitching was ridiculously tight (close together). When I was finally able to open up the seam about 2 inches I was staring right into the lining of the jacket--there was no pocket! I thought about keeping the suit for a while trying to convince myself the lack of pockets was a minor inconvenience. But in the end I decided I just could not live without side pockets so I returned the suit. A shame, because I really liked the look and fit of the suit.
