Funny, I have an Isaia made BB suit in my closet. It's actually one of my favorite. At the initial time of purchase (from the then 6th floor of the 346 Madison main store), I was told by the salesman that it was made by St. Andrews. Comparison of the labels later confirm the Isaia origin.

BB has a Regent fit Golden Fleece made in Italy. Super 150s or 160s I think. I've seen four stripped patterns at the Newbury St Store, all $2400. Cut like the 1818 Regent, but the lapel buttonhole is keyhole. Not as much handwork as the Greenfield, but one thing I noticed--Greenfield GF suits don't have besom rear pockets, the Italian Regents do.

They are minutes from the Williamsburg bridge. For the price and quality it's probably worth the trip. Thanks for all the compliments!

Looks like the end product is going to be very nice.

+1 on the good fit so far. Very very nice.

In all honesty, this suit looks better than 80% of the bespoke that's posted on SF. Well done.

Looks good, reminds me a lot of Chorse's suits actually.

Great looking suit. I think the styling fits your frame very well. Well done!

A good looking suit. I suggest you ask for livelier lapels and more open quarters on your next suit.

I've seen the term before but what exactly are open quarters? edit:

Yours are almost completed closed.

Pink lines = closed quarters
Yellow lines = open quarters

Looks pretty good. I too would like to see the quarters a little more open, but it's not bad. A very handsome suit. When you get it, can you post back and side pictures?

Thanks for the pictures.
