It's legit. I've seen fake Brioni with that label style, but the stitching around the label looked like it was applied by a glue-addled eight year old. If it's close to fitting, and you usually find it hard to find suits, I'd get it altered and wear it with pride. Otherwise, flip it for a decent profit, and plough the money back into something that does fit.

This simply isn't getting any use; despite Will's recent post featuring this umbrella I always find myself using a coloured model. Fantastic 'Prince of Wales' umbrella from Swaine, Adeney and Brigg. This is their top of the range model, with hallmarked sterling silver collar and cap on the malacca handle. This is the 25" model with the nylon canopy, and retails for £290 at the SAB store and online. This has the initials 'WC' engraved on it (£45 upcharge) - these are...
