Try adding more than $150 worth of trees into the cart, it might become available.

@Testo Where do you live? It might be an idea to try and organize a group buy to save on shipping.

Heh. Are you referring to the global saver program? It says its only for Singapore/Mexico (too bad i cant afford to buy $150 worth of stuff at the moment anyway.

 

ovlov : I live in Kensington, Sydney. I could try asking around to see if anyone near me wants shoe trees, but most of the people here are students and you know how they feel about shoe trees...

I was thinking more about fellow SFers in the same city. 

I have already organized a couple of shipments with other members where one person orders and then distributes the product to everyone else on receipt. You could arrange a purchase of more than just trees. See if local friends are considering other amazon purchases. Or find people here and buy from somewhere else. Where you might find someone interested in some shoes/ties/shirts/etc and find an online store with a decent price for both.

 

I ordered my trees in a group purchase with a few other friends in Adelaide who put in orders for pocket squares, ties and some other shoe care products...

What this means for someone of my proportions is that a suit with a 46" chest and a correspondingly wide shoulder will have a 40" inch waist. If you have a 38" waist, for example, you will have to get the pants tailored and the jacket waist suppressed. Difficult if your drop is bigger. But that is almost always the case with OTR unless you are one of those fortunate few for whom OTR in some makers is a perfect fit. I have seen Isaia, Brooks, Armani and other brands with drop 7 and 8. They may have them in Canali, but I haven't seen them. So far as pants are concerned, you will rarely get the young man's ideal of slim fit and sub 8" opening OTR. And rise is a matter of personal taste, but it tends to be higher in high end brands (generalisation). Tailoring also required. Check out the result on page 30 of the WAYWRN 4 thread showing Cox wearing a Canali expertly adjusted. He is slim, and it works more than well. He is certainly not a "fatty". Failing that, MTM or bespoke.

 Agree with most of this except that just about all the suits I've seen at the Canali boutique have been drop 7, at least in my size (I'm usually a 50).

 

The suits can tend to be a bit boxy and the pants too wide, although they usually taper very nicely. Also they tend to employ a strongly padded shoulder - haven't seen any unstructured shoulders except in one or two of their very casual jackets. (They are Milanese after all, not Neapolitan.)

 

Here's the photo mentioned by Stiva above, of a size 50 drop 7 Canali Exclusive suit. I've had the waist suppressed, the pants taken in at the waist and later narrowed along their entire length. A fair bit of extra expense but worth the effort in this case. They used to drop their prices by 50% during the sales, but lately it's only been 30-40% so when you start with a high price and add the extra tailoring costs, it won't be a bargain even when purchased during the sale. But such nice materials and construction!

And here's another Canali, size 50 drop 7, which has had no alteration apart from hemming the pants:

Hope this helps.

Thank you, your opinion has been noted. However bonds don't make wool Argyles. Wallabies 20 v Frogs 3 this is a rugby match.

If you close your eyes and click your heels those socks can be cashmere.

Pity they didn't move in for the kill, the second half was patchy, play like that wont go down well against the AB's. In other news the AB's are clinically dismembering the English.
