Hope I'm not spoiling this for anyone, but check out this auction. This guy doesn't seem like he knows what he's doing - the suit is tagged a 46 EU, but listed as a 40 US. Looks like a beautiful suit to me, and not a bad deal if it doesn't attract any more bidders.

It is a nice looking suit (aside from the off color buttons, I'm not a fan of those), but the sizing is all over the place. 46 It should be a 36, the jacket measures to a 38, and the pants have a 35" waist? WTF? No offense to the guy who this suit fits without alterations

Wild speculation leads me to believe that it is old (15 years maybe?), but I don't think it looks old. Â Nice high gorge, medium button stance, fabric seems in good shape...a classic, IMO. If it were my size (a 40L as advertised), I'd buy it in a second. I'm waiting to Mr. Harris to chime in and reveal the original maker.

The measurements he provides certainly don't seem to line ip at all with the sizes; these must all have been heavily altered...

D'Avenza I think, but would have to compare with my photo archive when I get home, to make sure...
