I ordered the matching skirt, and look like a million bucks for meetings - at way below the retails price on this top-quality suit! The tropical weight wool will work year-roud for me - the heathered grey color is very elegant and neutral, great to mix with colorful blouses and sweaters for countless looks. This is what I call an "investment suit" - will likely wear it for the rest of my life.
I am a size 12 in almost all clothes - sometimes a 10 in some higher end things. The 12 skirt fit perfectly, but the blazer was too tight in the chest. I exchanged for a 14 (there were only 3 left!), and it fits like it was custom made for me. So keep your proportions in mind.

I bought the matching skirt and blazer, and they are lovely. I am tall, but otherwise a true size 12. The skirt fit perfect, the blazer was snug in the chest, I was able to exchange the 12 for one of the few remaining size 14 blazers, and now have a very classic, very expensive suit good for any season, for a fraction of the price. It looks like it was custom tailored - the lightweight heathered wool is perfect for year-round. I will wear this suit for the rest of my life, probably. What a great value! The blazer has already been a great separate piece several times, and the skirt will also be useful on its own.
For an interview or a big meeting, this will be my go-to choice every time. It's understated and very professional.
