I'd agree with what has been posted - Tusting stuff used to be really nice, and reasonably priced. Then about 5 years ago they changed their leather and it's just not as good.

I've listed another Blanc Blu suit (same measurements, dark blue twill) here; Blanc Blu Twill
Suit has now sold, with payment recieved. Thank you for the interest OK, at the specific request of a member I've taken photos and measurements of the dark blue twill Blanc Blu / Super 180s / 14 Micron suit. This time, I have also taken photos of a couple of areas that might be expected to show wear, to demonstrate how immaculate these are.
