I was told (by the Polo salesperson) that my RLBL is made by Corneliani.

Looks like a loose four-in-hand to me.

1. Put the scarf around your neck.

2. Cross one length over the other in front of your chest.

3. Pull that through the opening above the 'crossing'.

4. Tighten & choose the width you prefer.

Easy, yes?

(Sorry, English isn't my first language, so my instructions are generally abysmal).

It looks great. I wish I had a picture. The cloth is anthracite, the pinstripes are a lightish brown, dotted and spaced 2mm apart vertically, and spaced 4mm apart horizontally. Depending on the lighting, it can emit a navy or a dark chocolate brown glow. It was frikkin' steal for $1200 IMO.

It's not this one which is just a plain navy pinstripe:

or this one (actual pinstripes on the one I'm talking about are 3x closer)

But the latter gets closer as far as the brown color.

I think your post refers to the suit I just bought. It is a very dark grey or black, hard to tell, and has very closely spaced pinstripes. I'll borrow a camera and post pics.

Tried a navy Black Label today at Saks. Man, talk about high armholes. Great suit though, I would have bought it but the 40R was very snug, and they didn't have a 41/42R.

Sorry to bring back an old thread but I have this suit and was planning to wear it to a wedding because it's my only black suit, but it has pinstripes. Do you think this suit is ok to wear to a wedding even if it has pinstripes? If not, what's the ruling on when this suit is appropriate? It's black so by the rules it's not a "business" suit, but it has pinstripes so by the rules it is a "business" suit. I bought this before my SF days...

I wouldn't wear a black suit to a daytime wedding. Or one at night (though I'm less opposed to this). But most people probably won't notice in the least.
