Prada Suits -- recent styles - Page 4

post #46 of 50
Thanks for the tip. Good to know about Bluefly... I'll probably pass on that one now then.

How about this one from Mr Porter? https://www.mrporter.com/product/174643

I'm told that this Lanvin suit includes a "fully lined floating canvas". This is obviously much better than the Prada one from bluefly - but the price seems a little low.. .what am I missing in this?

I've been talking to bluefly about the MSRP on their suit - they say $2200. I went to the Prada store here in NYC and they said something like that shouldn't cost more than $1500. They don't even carry fused/lined suits in the store here.

Of course bluefly wont admit or mention it on the product page.

>$2k for a suit and you're worried it's too cheap? Only on StyleForum...anyway, this suit is an example of currently fashionable-in-some-circles extremely short jacket and high buttoning point. Personally I think it looks terrible, and if you're looking for a suit to wear in an office/conservative setting then it's probably not appropriate, but if you like it and want to wear it out at night or something, go for it.

It's not about it being too "cheap." It's about getting what you pay for. You can easily get a half-canvassed or even full floating canvas suit from some brands for that $2-2.5k price point. I'm just annoyed that they would advertise it as having that MSRP.

If I want a fused/lined suit, I would just spend $800 and get a zzegna or something similar. (which I currently have one of and it's nice).

And I'll be the first to admit it, me and probably many of us here obsess about stupid minor details that are meaningless in the long run. "Canvas or fused suit?! Life is so hard!"
