 I kinda view Yoox as a research library :D.  
 A 2-button navy suit by Lardini - http://www.yoox.com/us/49133633KR/item Very nice finishing, seemed like it was probably fully canvased, and with the 30% discount they were running was a steal at around $300. Unfortunately it ran big for an Italian 52. I could have had the sides and trousers taken in, but the shoulders were just too big for me.  I ended up keeping this jacket from Tombolini -- http://www.yoox.com/us/41385184HF/itemI started sizing up to a 44, but that...

 Yup. I just have an immediate negative reaction to notch lapels on a dinner jacket. Maybe someday I'll get over it, but this is not that day. Take away the grosgrain facing, or put on a shawl collar instead and it's entirely different, but the combination of notch lapel and a contrasting facing is just....
