I jumped on this fact last week, got both navy and charcoal (hey why not?) should be here tomorrow. Interested to see the cut - Tipo with true 3r2 lapel. Wider than the Balthazar, prob less prominent than the NMWA cut.
I planned to write something in more detail about this in the future, but let it be said for now, that I am a devoted supporter of the Tipo (and hope others make their appreciation for it known as well).

Whats funny is that its actually sold really well in stores. I think the large size offering has more to do with how poorly it is styled in the photo than its versatility because that fabric is incredibly easy to casualize. The jacket looks great with a cashmere crewneck, tee shirt and jeans. The suit looks great with a turtleneck. At that price (which is bananas), I would think of it more as a sport jacket that comes with a free matching pair of pants that you can wear if you feel so inclined.[/quote]
Ty,the fact that you say it can be worn as a sport coat alone just makes it even a better deal and really makes me want to purchase it.
Its navy with a natural deco. Do you really think I would sell a store a purple windowpane suit?
Its a balthazar.
I actually saw this in the store in per person from a distance about 2 months ago,but was on my was out, and it does not look as shinny as in the picture, if anything, the pattern seemed more grayish than white,therefore they were not as loud,n it was Navy.
Anyone care to pass the link for different fits,i only own the Tipo,tried a Balthazar last week,seem a bit tight, maybe i just gained weight, also has anyone used the in house tailor at bloomies,if so care to share thoughts?
I'd love to get the 25% off, who wouldn't, but mainly I'm ready for bloomies to get their ss stuff. Marc said the 25% off applies to new arrivals only, and they don't have casual new arrivals, yet. Holding out hope for that pajama-ish shirt I posted a page back, whether it's on sale or not.
Strongly considering selling these however, as some recent unexpected repair bills came up. If anyone is interested PM me. They are size 11US. First pic is with comparison to my snuff suede meermin chukkas.
