    Its a Brooks Brothers extra slim. 3 for $199, plus 25% off with the family and friends sale thing this last weekend. First 3 things I've ever bought from there, but fits very nice.

    Only downside is a chest pocket, but hey ho.

    What brand of shirt is that, Foggy?

    Back from the tailor having buttoned the sleeves, let out the chest and hemmed the trousers. Happy! [​IMG]

    I'd thought you needed to size up in the suit, but looks great. Letting out the chest did the trick.

    New model later this year with button stance 1" lower. 2" lower is way too low... we toyed around with it and finalized the model - going into production later this Spring/Summer. And again - I don't think the pick-stitching is nearly that noticeable in reality - any others who have purchased/seen the garment agree or disagree?

    Ben, have the new Lucente models with the lower button stance been put into production yet? I know you said spring/summer, just wanted to check if they were already available, or if they haven't been made yet, when they would be. Thanks in advance!

    Your call. Well-dressed men do not wear their trousers on their hips.

    Narrow-minded nonsense.

    I'd like to know the answer to this myself. Maybe this question should be asked in the affiliate thread so that Ben will see it?

    Won't be out until towards the end of this year. Please not it will be more like the Maestro model than the Lucente model - but with a lower button stance.
