BB Milano vs Fitzgerald suit - Page 3

post #31 of 40
It says the Milano suits are made in Italy. Does anyone know the manufacturer and whether they are half or fully canvassed?

I don't understand why their only solid two-button suit in this line is black and a charcoal flannel.

So I decided to email BB and ask if they plan to have their two-button Milano suit in any solid color other than Black. They replied and said no. This is very disappointing. It seems like the only solid color you can get in a Milano is going to be grey flannel and black.

Manufacture, no idea. Half canvassed. The charcoal grey is not heavy duty winter flannel, I would say close to 3 season, you should check it out.

Honestly I think Navy Pinstripe is pretty stable. That was my first suit I think you can kind ignore what BB says, they might change their mind by next season anyway...

Also the 3 roll to 2 looks good

might just find an alternative to my Polo II from PRL

Thanks, that's good to know since I would prefer a solid charcoal suit. Hopefully my size becomes available.

definitely look it in person though, some people just prefer finer wool in general no matter what

After losing 30 lbs and down one or two sizing, I am in the process of replacing my suits and sport coats/blazers...

Noticed this morning that BB has expanded their Milano suit offering (they even have a solid Navy.)

Recently I tried on Regent and like the fit; just wondering if someone can share how Milano fits with respect to Regent.

Agree, I'd be interested in the Regent vs. Milano fit as well.

^^ IMO/IME, Regent is a great fit if you have a broader shoulder....and the suiting trousers seems to be a little tapered vs the Fitz. I wear 40S for Fitz as well......Milano is just a tad tight to my liking because I am fat (32 waist) ...great if you are really skinny

I wish I had known this years ago.l I dismissed the Regent without looking into in since I didn't think about shoulder fit versus the fitzgerald.
