A little more suit help - Page 2

Doesn't Corneliani retail for $1100?  $800 doesn't seem like a deep discount, $1k for Oxxford on the other hand...
I think everyone would acknowledge that Corneliani is the same level of suit as Canali and Zegna, two brands whose retail price is higher.  So maybe the discount seems less significant because the retail is more reasonable.

zj, sorry you reference the golden fleece being on sale on the 4th floor - 4th floor of bb?

AC: I don't think that follows as Corneliani is sharply discounted online and I have seen some of their suits at my neighborhood Marshall's in the $300-400 price range (regular line, not trend)

Yes he meant 4th floor of BB -- 5th Ave. store I assume. If you go there, please PM me if there are ny Italian golden fleece available on sale (I wear a 39 or 40R).

Perhaps my comments should be confined to the DC market then.  As far as I know, our Marshall's do not sell Corneliani.  The Filene's Basements sell Canalis for $900.  I think a Corneliani selling for $800 is comparable to a Canali selling for $900 -- maybe even preferable if you like Corneliani's silhouette more.  I would agree that an Oxxford selling for $1K is a better deal than either those two if you've got the cash. I don't know if the Cornelianis being sold online are comparable to the Cornelianis being sold in Filene's Basement, so I can't comment on that part of your statement.

The trick is to wait for Filene's suit event. It's not $300, but $600 is a passable deal for a Corneliani, especially one you can try on before you buy.
