    ^^ Thanks mate. I assumed the more expensive was better, especially when it's already on sale. I am intersted in the sizing as well, I'm a 41L and am going to 42L. Wish me luck.

    All great points...can't argue with any of this. I have really been wanting the Marlow for a while now, and I don't own any dark brown dress shoes, so this will fill a really huge gap in my rotation. And it's really difficult to find any brand new cordovan shoe for under $450, so I couldn't pass it up this time.

    Although, I really do like the Lindrick too - and your description along with Spoo's pics made me want them even more, haha. I guess I'll just have to stick with the Alden x Epaulet Ravello for now (assuming those are shipped sometime soon - hopefully this year), and maybe I'll get the Lindrick during the next private sale.

    Do you know if the Italian made blazer is Caruso and fully canvassed?

    Honestly can't say whether the Blazers are Caruso, I was under impression that the suits were only.. however I can see how the Made in Italy blazers can be..

    I think I'll get it either way.

    I usually wear 40R slim fit (38R otherwise) with a good amount of waist suppression (32 waist). Do you think 40R would fit well with Rugby suits/blazers?

    If a 40R slim fit fits you well already - then a 40R Rugby will be good - because the 38R is also slim...

    Yeah, nice. I got the rope-striped one I linked earlier yesterday. 155 for the jacket and 120 for the pants. :D

    I had no idea the maker could be caruso. The other stuff i ordered shipped already today but not this stuff.

    How does the Rugby fit compare to RLBL Anthony? Comparable?

    Yeah that one is from earlier this year, its a steal at 155+120 - porblem is I already had a similar suit from Rugby.. Congrats though.


    Yeah I would say so. It's probably just as slim, shoulders a bit more relaxed maybe..

    I think that's changed. I have a Bradford 3 piece 40L that fits like a 38R. But I tried one on in store yesterday, 40R, and it was big on me... while the 40L older one is tight on me.



    2 things:

    a. Calling them will be no help; you really think they know anything?

    b. The biggest piece of evidence, price, suggests that it's not fully canvassed. It makes absolutely no sense for them to waste money making it fully canvassed and charging that price.

    a. yeah the customer service won't but when the product specialists call or email me back we will get some real help

    b. FE Castleberry says they are canvassed.. that is the biggest piece of evidence to me. In the preppy world he knows what he is talking about... As well as a few other blogs claim they are fully canvassed so a bit more of validity into his statement.



    oh and did some digging:

    http://www.rugby.com/blog/post/2011...-Introducing-The-Rugby-Haberdashery-Shop.aspx

    Rugby themselves say it is fully canvassed...

    Regarding the Marlow pricing discrepancy I had to call back and ask him to match the website price, which he did of course, but acted like it was an accommodation rather than an error. Strange. Anyway, 49% off :slayer:
