I have the exact same suit as the first one in 38S. No handwork, just a standard old suit with nice fabric. The made in Italy Burberry suits are really quite nice (at the ~$1250 price point). They also do (did?) an ultra top of the line made in Italy line (at teh $2000 to $2500) price point.) I own suits at each of these grades as well. The top one is exremely nice indeed.
I hate to hijack this thread, but a few months ago (maybe even longer) there was a Burberry suit on ebay. The model was referred to as "The Gentleman Suit". It was a medium brown with some pinstripes. Anyway, the more I looked at it, the more appealing it became. Has anyone seen such a suit? I am really interested in obtaining one.
