OK, here we have a Lanvin suit from the 15 Faubourg range. The tag is familiar as the type Raffaele Caruso sew into their suits. The fabric is a light grey cotton and is very soft, light and crisp, and ideal for spring/summer. I'm not too well up on fabrics but it might be described as poplin (?) It has two buttons on the front, and four on the cuffs (not functioning). The trousers are flat front with two pockets on the rear. The suit is new and unworn, but there are some creases, typical of cotton suits, which I have no doubt will drop or press out. It is a size 48EU, but the measurements might be more typical of a 50. You be the judge. Jacket. Chest: 21 inches Shoulder: 18.25 inches Length: 30.5 inches (Bottom of collar) Sleeves: 26 inches Trousers. Waist: 16.5 inches across the inside of the waistband. Leg: Long. The suit is identical in everything but colour to one currently on Luisaviaroma at 1,404 Euros.

Suit will ship from the UK.
