I can get the same look by throwing my regular BB suit in the dryer, minus the $4000.

I don't think it's an optimal solution, but you can wear his jackets longer than they are intended to be worn. +1. Check out Black Fleece in Brooks Brothers. They're having a sale right now. You would need BB0 in their suits. The jacket would fit perfectly but the pants would need...

Some of you are overly stuck on BRAND labels. I wouldn't wear that thing if it were the last jacket in the world. It's straight from the 70's pattern. Just because it's Isaia doesn't mean it's worth having.
