Keeping in mind, of course, that those are sub-$200, $900+, and $400+ suits, respectively. They're similar only in their cut (and I might even dispute that - I could definitely see someone looking much better in a Hickey Freeman off the rack than a JAB with its shoulders, or a Joseph Abboud with its general dowdy overratedness, or vice versa if you're a particularly portly fellow; really, they're similar only when compared with skinny modern stuff).

Everything TaT makes looks like you put your suit through the wash and it shrunk.
This (not even being the worst example from their website) is a stupid look for the office:
There are plenty of top-notch modern and slim cut suits out there that are acceptable for the law office (not an interview). TaT is not a place to find such suits.

I worked for four years with a bunch of ultraconservative flag-wavers in a nuclear weapons lab on an Air Force Base. There was no occasion in which it was appropriate to wear a flag pin there, so my guess is that such an occasion doesn't exist anywhere, unless you're running for office.
