    Oops, austerity brogues is the F, suede bals U. Trying to decide between the two and typed the wrong last. I think I "need" a suede bal more than an austerity brogue.

    I've seen both in person - the austerity brogue is very nice, but the suede is really something special IMHO

    It's the pants that are stopping me. Would've bought one in each fabric otherwise. Started to consider the birdseye navy for a dressier navy blazer but I have no idea what I'd do with the pants (and can't remember how textured the birdseye really is in person)

    LOL! I had both the suede bal and austerity brogue high on my wish list. At those prices for Vass I had to pull the trigger on one of them.

    What is the issue with the trousers?

    Hi Greg, I came by once and actually tried on the trousers -- nothing wrong with them as far as anyone else should be concerned, they were just weren't the right cut for me at all (needed a lot more rise, thighs a little slim and would need the waist taken in so far that they would need to be re-cut). I was really impressed with the suits though and it pains me that I'm a tough fit for trousers in general.

    too slim for me - any chance of bespeaking the matching pair to go with the jacket?

    Twice this week I have had people come up to me and ask me where I got my coat in social contexts where such a question would typically not be expected.

    The Luigi Bianchi Mantova grey twill polo overcoat is definitely an eye catcher.

    I'm the opposite. I had a Formossa in my cart and just removed it. As much as I want to like it the problem is the shoulder width jumps from 18.1 in a 48 to 18.9 for the 50. It feels like they skipped a step. My best fitting suits all have shoulders that measure at 18.5 and chest at 21 inches. Admittedly, if the measurements work for you, it's an amazing opportunity.

    Can someone comment on sizing for the Valstar down parkas, they are exactly what I've been looking for for a long time. But I'm typically a 36/46, would the 48 fit me?

    Going strictly by chest and shoulder measurements, I am between a 52/54. But having tried both, I am significantly more comfortable in the 54 and would have been fine if there were suck thing as a 55.

    I hope that helps.
