I am really bummed to be selling this suit. Unfortunately it is just a little too big in the shoulders and a little too long. Made in Italy for Davide Cenci, I believe by Belvest, the suit is a navy worsted wool (I think a worsted flannel), with a beautiful chalk windowpane. It is fully canvassed, three-roll-two, and double-vented. The pants are double-reverse pleated, and have a 1.75" cuff. Lots of beautiful details on this one. For one thing, the fabric itself is...
Hey guys, I have a Marinella silk knit tie for sale. It's an ivory base with black dots, 2.25" wide by 58" long. Really great material...light but crunchy. Made in Italy. It has a mark at the base of the front blade, which looks to be a little bit of blue ink. It may or may not come out with dry cleaning, but it is only slightly noticeable, and much less so when worn. Other than that it is in perfect condition. Great chance to get a beautiful tie for a steal. $50 $30...
Hey guys, I have a mid-grey, two-button, single-breasted Aquascutum suit for sale. Beautiful fabric and great construction (I think half-canvas). Horn buttons. Single center vent. The pants are a split and curtained waistband with buttons for suspenders and belt loops. Two reverse pleats but no cuffs. There is, however, plenty of fabric to either let out the hem or add cuffs, and perhaps even both. Really a beautiful suit. Coat Measurements Shoulder to shoulder:...
Yes, it's too short and not wide enough in the hips. Also the pants' rise is too low. I'm not sure why you picked that one though, since it's not his shirt that's showing, but some strange cardigan setup.
I picked up this sportcoat a while back, but unfortunately I think it's just too long for me. If anybody can convince me otherwise, I'd appreciate it. I love the fabric and pattern and would love to hang on to it. Could I get it shortened without ruining it? Do I even need to get it shortened? Maybe it just needs adjustments at the sides, the skirt, and the sleeves and that will make it better? My apologies for the crappy photos.
Up for sale is a Marinella tie with a slightly lighter than navy blue (french blue?) base and a neat patter of light blue rings and tiny golden brown flowers. It measures roughly 3.75 inches (that's 9.5 cm) wide and is 60 inches long. It's marked down because it is in less than perfect condition, although the flaws make it no less wearable in my opinion. The two flaws are a barely noticeable pull along the front of the main blade. It's less noticeable than it is in the...
I have to agree with Ant Honey on this. While conforming to his environment might mitigate SS' culpability somewhat, it doesn't change the fact that the outfit is a mishmash of discordant elements, colors, and textures.
Describing anything about high-end shoes as austerity has always struck me as ironic. I know, it's an appropriation of the term, but it still cracks me up anytime somebody mentions their austerity brogues that cost upwards of $500. I suppose I should add that I really dig the fit, Moo.
Picked this up recently but decided it's just too long. Rather than shortening it and possibly ruining the sportcoat in the process, I thought I'd pass along a great deal to somebody else. This would be a lovely fall sportcoat for somebody, which is why I picked it up. The colors are gorgeous, the construction top notch, and the gorge placement and buttoning point are spot on. The chest is built up nicely; I've included a picture to show what I mean. $135 $120 SOLD The...
If you're buying pocket squares online, then I suppose hand-rolled edges could serve as a stand-in for quality much in the way that functional boutonniere holes or surgeon's cuffs have been an indication of a well-constructed suit (though these touches are less and less useful as RTW manufacturers employ them to con style dilettantes). That said, pocket squares are pretty simple "garments", if you can even call them that--there's just the fabric and the edge. Generally...
