NWOT Raffaele Caruso - Sartoria Parma suit 40r SOLD

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Now that autumn is quickly arriving I am relisting this wonderful suit. I bought this suit last winter but never got around to wearing it. I've worn it a total of 10 minutes around the house. I've recently added a few pounds in the chest and unfortunately this suit just doesn't fit anymore.

The suit is really amazing and is a perfect winter suit. It is charcoal with an orange pinstripe. The fabric is an extremely thick wool 92%/ cashmere 8% blend. The shoulders are very soft with a beautiful waterfall affect. It is a 3 roll 2.5. The sleeve buttons are not attached and the pants are unhemmed.

Price: SOLD

Measurements:
Jacket
Chest: ~43 inches
Shoulders: ~19 inches
Sleeves: ~25.6 inches seam to cuff
Length BoC: ~30 inches
Pants
Waist: ~33.5 inches with ample room to let out
Inseam: ~37 inches
Rise: ~10.5 inches
Leg opening: ~8.5 inches

Hm, I had to refresh the thread to get them to come up.

That's a fantastic color combination.

Gorgeous suit!!! What's the waist measurement on it?

Also, as a general observation.. Ever notice how makers always put something like "Cashmere - wool" or "Cashmere blend" or "Cashmere bonanza" even if the garment is only like 2% cashmere?

eBay is the worst offender, really. "RARE LUXE BOSS HUGO BOSS CASHMERE SUIT COAT JACKET 48S" 97% wool, 2% elastane, 1% cashmere.

In this case, the fabric is 8% cashmere which is a reasonably high percentage of cashmere for suiting. Generally the comments about cashmere contents are made when the seller states in the title 'Cashmere suit' and upon opening the thread that the cloth is 2% cashmere blend.

...and this one has that cashmere look to it (even though it's only 8% cashmere).

Please note that I am not criticizing this suit or this seller in any way! Just the dubious marketing practice of advertising cashmere-blend suits as cashmere suits. Just say it's a wool/cashmere suit! I like wool/cashmere suits!

DISCLAIMER: This note not directed at the current seller.

The label does say 'Cashmere-Wool'
