Two days ago, on the 10th, I made a one-time payment for last periods (May 15th - Jun 15th) invoice ($75.90), but it also included this periods (Jun 15th - Jul 15th) invoice ($60), so that my total one-time payment came to $135.    Today, I get a notification that this periods ($60) invoice is due in two days, Will I be double billed? (Through the automatic billing system)     My account summary states:    Your PayPal payment for US $135.90 was posted to your account...
Hi, yes, working sleeve buttons.    Also, for anyone interested, as you can see from the measurements, it's probably actually more of a Long model than Regular, even though the label states that it's a Regular drop 7 (could be that it's long since it's a 53) 
Actually marked 53R, but could work as a 52R/L (the size I use). It's in a dark navy/blue tick weave Super 150's fabric. 3-roll-2 single breasted, dual vents. Medium padded shoulders (Not too different from Zegna milano). Single pleat trousers which I've had slimmed down, and removed lining from.    Shipping would be $30 bucks from Norway (with tracking), or $20 if you're located in EU.    Shoulders 19.5"  Chest 22.8" Waist 21.5"  BOC Length 31.8"  Sleeves...
And for those wondering: They replaced the Roma fit with Torino. Torino is pretty much identical to Roma, but with more roping and slimmer cut.    I have one Roma and Milano suit from the last season they carried Roma, and they are actually identical. 
Here are two articles going through St. Andrews construction:    http://tuttofattoamano.blogspot.no/2010/01/saint-andrews.html http://tuttofattoamano.blogspot.no/2012/02/ralph-lauren-purple-label.html     Again, LP almost is pricing their stuff almost exclusively on the fabric used. You can get a "normal" LP jacket for around $3000, while a Kiton will easily cost between $6000-$8000, brand new in stores.      I have a friend that actually works at Loro Piana, so...
Also, interesting observation for the geeks, Loro Piana and Paul Stuart (Stuart's Choice) used the same manufacturers for their suits during the same time periods. Caruso -> Isaia -> St. Andrews    So if you find any of those tags in either a Loro Piana or Stuart's Choice suit/jacket, you can assume the age:    Caruso tag: early-mid 00's  Isaia: Late 00's  St. Andrews: The past 5 years or so.   On a completely different note: I found a RLBL suit which was made by...
^Current suits are made by St. Andrews, but I think they have different lines. Their "Business" suit line (which has pretty much been untouched in as far as style goes for the past 20 years) is very plain and business-formal looking. They also seem to offer very lightweight and casual looking suits, which could very well may be made by G.abo, haven't checked out those.    It should also be noted that LP jackets are incredibly light-weight, often unlined and with minimal...
I've owned a bunch of Loro Piana.    The suits I've owned have been made by:    Caruso  Isaia  St. Andrews    The latest stuff has been from St. Andrews. 
Used Corneliani 'Leader' suit for sale. Size 52R EU in a dark charcoal color, with a subtle stripe pattern to it. Some sheen on the trousers in the crotch area, but it blends with the natural "shine" from the silk. (With that said, it's not a "shiny" silk suit).  More lightweight than the regular 100% Super 120's - Super 150's suits I've owned from them.    Shipping from Norway is $30   -55% wool / 45% silk -Full-canvas construction -Flat front trousers -Soft...
I'd say mid 00's    They had the black "Z" right before they started with the plain black (no white threads) zegna logo.    Here's the one that came after.
