I like how it looks, but I have no idea what would look good with it.      Or plaid like this  
Could anyone estimate ago of this:    90s ?   
Question for those here that own either any of these in size 40R    -Lazio -Tuxedo -Napoli  -Washington    What are the shoulder seam to seam (on back) and chest measurement, when laid flat on a table?  From the measurement list on the SS website, it seems as if they follow the slope of the (left) shoulder from seam to collar, then straight across the back collar, and then the slope down the (right) shoulder.    Compared to normal shoulder measurements (laid flat...
As mentioned, it's sprezz.   To me, it's a very sloppy look. And not in a good way. Just one of those ridiculous #menswear trends.  
Here's what I like about SS:    -Good sized lapels  -Decent to very good button stance  -Interesting and wide range of shoulder construction. Natural, Soft, Structured, Roped, etc.  -Decent construction (Half-canvassed, some nice looking and feeling fabrics)    I don't like that they have standard working buttons, that's almost a deal-breaker, as it makes alterations a real pain.    So, given those points, are there any good alternatives to SS?    Seems like the...
Selling a very nice 6x2 Tuxedo from Belvest. Not what I was looking for (Got this by accident), so I'm letting it go.    Specs and measurements:    Jacket   -Worn only once, like new.  -Double-breasted 6x2 button configuration  -Satin silk detailing  -Full-Canvass construction -Structured shoulders  -Unvented  -Black four season S100 wool  -Drop 6    Chest (From armpit to armpit, jacket laid on a flat surface): 22.5" Shoulders(measured on back, from...
I know that some makers, such as Zegna, Oxxford, etc- actually write "suit", "jacket", "sc" etc. on the suit tags to indicate whether it's a suit or blazer/sport coat.    As with Canali, you just have to do a search on the model number.    I know people like to say that the fabric and styling is a dead give away, but that's not always the case. I've seen lots of sport coats from high-end manufacturers that are identical to the coats of their suits.    Hell, my navy...
Well, I heard back from the seller. It's pretty obvious that he has no idea what I am talking about, so I'd advise anyone against dealing with shoponlinesrl2010 , at least when buying tuxedos.    The tux I bought    http://www.ebay.com/itm/371145144925?_trksid=p2059210.m2749.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT   The tux I got, and...
It fits alright. The one I hoped to get was 50 Drop 8, this is Drop 6. I'll probably have to flip it here for a loss, and pick up a suitsupply tux. Thought I'd be in good time for the season this year, but obviously things can go wrong.    Where the hell do those guys pick up these pieces to begin with? He's selling brand new Belvest suits for 160-200 Euro. Some look really good, some look terrible. He's also flipping some Canali, Corneliani and Armani stuff from time to...
God damnit, I'm having some serious problems with an Ebay seller. FWIW, it's one of those Italian Ebay shops that are selling hundreds of Belvest items...   But here it goes:    On Sep 22 I bought a plain single-breasted, one button Belvest tuxedo in 50.  3 weeks later I receive a striped on, in short. Wrong tux...If I return it, he'll send out the correct one. So I spend 50$ on shipping, and send it back.   After lots of mailing, he then sends out the "correct"...
