Since originally reading this thread, I've been flirting (OK, it's now getting closer to heavy petting) with the idea of dropping a few bucks on some Borrelli wares on Ian's site. Â I've never dealt with this seller before but, as a long-time Style Forum lurker, I put a great deal of stock in the positive recommendations of its members; your glowing reviews are enough for me. Â I've spent the last few weeks searching for better deals on suits, but this one has me most intrigued. So here's the question -- can anyone provide some more input/feedback/info as to what I can expect from Borrelli? Â I'm not sure how, but I've somehow managed to never come across much of anything from him, so I'm not terribly familiar with what he has to offer. Â How are the cuts, drapes, fabrics, tailoring, etc? Â I tend to like my suits to blend classic and professional (I'm a lawyer) with slim/modern/tailored (though not overly skinny --not quite, say, Dior Homme; think maybe Paul Smith London, which is the label on my favorite suit in my closet, a navy pinstripe). Â The flat front trousers on the Borrelli suits is encouraging, but I'm just not sure. In any event, I'd very much love to hear any feedback that you guys can offer before I blow my 8 month old daughter's college fund on what look to be some very good deals. Â I'm particularly interested in the suits, though I'd welcome any info on shirts, ties, and so on. Â Thank you in advance.
