Well, the polo.com sale was too good to be true i'm affraid... I ordered both the black and charcoal winter suits at polo.com a few weeks back for the sale price plus 25% off. I recieved the black one just fine, but the fabric was hardly a "cashmere blend" the wool was 'tough' i returned it. The 'charcoal suit', supposedly a flat front, single vent $1395 retail arrived as a different suit alltogether, with a navy / grey pinstripe, pleats and an english vent - not all all the suit pictured, and the price on the suit was $1195, not $1395. I returned the black one with the receipt for the more expensive one and kept the navy one for $440 (my net sale price + 25% + free shipping) for 63% off. Not entirely thrilled, but a sale is a sale... I think it is a fine albeit accidental addition to my wardrobe. I have never seen this navy suit with charcoal pinstrip, and do not even know if it belongs to this season... but the fabric is softer than the black suit and the fit is much better for some reason. the tag says, "POLO II" made in italy. I will say that my paul stuart winter suit is a higher quality for the same type, and seems to have a better fit... but was not nearly as well priced (though about the same price retail) so i will go back to the paul stuart sale this week and see if there is anything else worth picking up. anyone else with a polo.com sale experience??
