I think I picked up the same suit ... it's got a cut label inside (probably an offseason product by one of the dept stores). Here's how I felt:
1 - It's a great deal for 699. I needed a black suit for interviews and formal occasions, and by far the most conservative look at my field is achieved with black. I've got a plaid, prince of wales, and a grey striped flannel suit but none are what I would wear for an interview.
2 - The model is 11xxxx. I can say it is one of the *worst* fitting suit I have ever tried on. The fit is terribly boxy, and the length of the jacket goes down almost to my thighs. I wear 38R (40 slim) and it feels like a 38LLLLLLLLL ....
3 - The pants' waist is actually spot on, but the rise is so high I felt like I was wearing mom's jeans. It has at least a 11" rise which I thought would be OK but turned out to be insanely long.
4 - The material is awfully nice. It flows really well and felt luxurious to the touch. I can see the positive comments for this brand in this forum.
All in all, I'm sure a 6' 4" guy with a body shape like bender from futurama will look good. I'm 5' 9" and the jacket ends below my crotch ... wth.
Well, at least it only costs me 3.99 for this attempt.
I will stick with my God awful EA suit for now (yeah, fused crap (rolleyes)) but fits me like a glove at 40R.
Any recommendations for Canali model numbers or other brands that resemble a slightly trimmer fit? (close to Paul Smith London, as an example, but equivalent to Canali quality)
