    It is a medium gray 3 button, and I think it is ventless. 40R. I tried it on and the fit is great. Not quite my style though (and I can't afford another suit right now ). I'm not sure what line, but it is definitely not Zegna Soft. A medium weight wool, with (I believe) pic-stitching. Not sure if it's canvassed.

    It was originally $1600 at Mr. Sid's. It's going to go on 50% markdown on Sunday -- which will make it a $300 steal for someone. Wanted to give you guys the heads up in case you wanted to take a look and are in Boston area. I can't imagine it selling before Sunday, but you better buy that thing first thing Sunday if you want it.

    If anyone wants to pick that suit up for me, I'll happily throw a few bucks their way via PayPal.

    Are you in the Boston area? What kind of "buyers fee" would you throw in?

    You know, I bet if you called up on Saturday around closing and asked for someone in Men's Suits (a guy named John McDaniel is a pretty nice guy), I bet he'd put that thing on hold for you.

    I don't live anywhere near Boston. And not much of a finder's fee -- not enough to make it worth anyone's time unless they were planning a visit there anyway.

    Oh. Their return policy is also only 14 days, so even on markdown I'm not sure it's a good idea to buy something without seeing it.

    Good luck though. I wasn't planning on making a trip there this weekend, anyways, so I couldn't help you. But I hope someone on this board gets a nice find.
