1. Welcome to the new Styleforum!

    We hope you’re as excited as we are to hang out in the new place. There are more new features that we’ll announce in the near future, but for now we hope you’ll enjoy the new site.

    We are currently fine-tuning the forum for your browsing pleasure, so bear with any lingering dust as we work to make Styleforum even more awesome than it was.

    Oh, and don’t forget to head over to the Styleforum Journal, because we’re giving away two pairs of Carmina shoes to celebrate our move!

    Reputable seller. 60 percent or so off retail.

    Do you want to buy it? Do you like the cut of Brioni's? Does Brioni's cut favour your shape? What sort of suit rotation do you have? It is certainly not a staple suit. Pink windowpane may not be appropriate in some work environments. If your answers are "Yes", "Yes", "Yes", "I have the staples covered", "My boss doesn't care/is colourblind/I am the boss" + "I really want to post in the Peacock thread. Go for it.

    Have you given this some thought and compared this suit to what you might get with MTM or bespoke via in person and not online-submit-your-measurements-and-get-a-suit at a similar price point? Do you have the time, inclination and access to MTM or bespoke?

    Will you be able to overcome any potential buyer's remorse when something similar or better pops up for sale here or EBay after you buy it?

    If after ruminating on this and a myriad of other considerations you still feel this is something you must have, sleep on it (you have that luxury) and if the fire still burns, buy it.

    Or, forget what I have written and just buy it 'cause it is a damn sexy suit and you want it.

    If you pm him he might give you a discount if you skip eBay.
