    I bought this on SF a few days ago and am sad to say that it doesn't fit. It's a beautiful suit but just didn't work for me.

    It's a Polo RL (made by Corneliani) Polo II model dark gray suit. It's charcoal but not too dark; really a perfect shade. Material is a very nice midweight worsted. Tagged 42R but fits slim, so keep that in mind. Another thing to note is the button stance. I can't tell if it's a true 3 or has been pressed into a true 3. I've really only seen Polo suits in a 3-roll-2.5 configuration and I suspect that this was just pressed differently. Easy fix, obviously, if you want it to be a 3-roll-2.5. Trousers are cuffed with two forward pleats. Double vents on the jacket.

    Looking to get $100 shipped in CONUS or best offer. This is a massive discount off MSRP and a lot less than I paid!

    Measurements:
    -Jacket-
    Chest: 21"
    Shoulder (seam to seam across back): 18.5"
    Length (from BOC): 30.25"
    Sleeve: 25" (2" to let)

    -Trousers-
    Waist: 16.5" (3" to let)
    Inseam: 28" (2" to let, 1.5" cuffs)
