    And is there a promo code that would work for a pair of shoes?

    I'll echo the Inglese love. Great shirts. Shirt was not worn today (but pants were), but I figured I would snap a couple pics before work for those on the fence.

    Thanks bud! I thought the same thing when I saw your fit.

    And my picture (funnily enough) is worn with an undershirt (heather grey), and I am definitely a bit pudgier than you are.

    The shirt in the pic has been handwashed in cold about 5 times. No shrinkage.

    I love that grey chambray stripe. I have had that one on my mind for a while.

    @gdl203 I know there are no refunds on sale items, but can an item be exchanged for store credit if another size is not available?

    Damn.

    I will say this though. You are hellishly lucky you are long-armed. I am still putting off altering the arms of my Ingleses.

    Hi @christianch ! Some great picks there! You should post a picture or two when you're wearing the suits.

    To answer your questions, the style is IMO softer than Kiton, with a more traditional lapel shape and buttoning point. The make of Kiton suits is very impressive in my experience, and the price tag reflects the hours of manual work. That said, the process of making those suits is very different for Sartoria Formosa vs Kiton. Kiton operates a factory - the work is done in a semi-industrial manner, yet with a lot of handwork. Sartoria Formosa does not have a factory, just a small bespoke workshop with a handful of tailors (including 3 master tailors/cutters)

    This is where Kiton suits are made :

    Also regarding Kiton vs Formosa - as Greg said, Kiton makes a lovely jacket, but not only is the Formosa made in a smaller workshop, it also has more handwork than Kiton. For instance, Kiton uses machine-padded collar and lapels.
