1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    Up for sale is an incredible NWT Canali suit. Recent season model. (2011-ish)

    This thing hits every damn note on the iGent scale. Full of win. Cut slim.

    I'll let the specs speak for themselves:

    -Made in Italy by Canali
    -Full canvas construction
    -Soft shoulder with minimal padding
    -High armholes
    -Low two-button stance
    -Double vents (with factory basting attached --- aka SUPER new with tags)
    -Four season weight 100% virgin wool fabric
    -Charcoal with subtle blue Prince of Wales check / Glen plaid
    -Jacket fully lined with cupro bemberg
    -Flat front pants
    -Slim cut with great waist suppression
    -Will generally need little or alterations (aside from the hem)

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At full retail with sales tax, this suit would costs approximately $1945. (see tag)

    Considering keeping this suit and tweaking the shoulders to fit my frame a bit. I have a bad habit of kopping stuff even if it doesn't fit perfectly. Selling this suit at cost. Since this is an extreme staple suit, I will not be considering lowball offers.

    $725 shipped CONUS

    Price is consistent with this non-staple tan Canali suit on eBay

    Always Add 5% for PayPal. I can no longer accept personal payments. As is implied with all SF classified listings, the sale is final. Sold as is.​

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Tagged a 40S, but it is clearly a 40R. (~30 BOC length)

    Approximate measurements:

    Shoulders from seam to seam: 18.5
    Chest pit to pit: 21.5
    Sleeve from seam to cuff: 24.5 (perfect length for showing cuff on most frames, but there is ~1.75 inches of material to let out)
    Jacket Length from BOC: 30

    Waist: 33 (with material to let out)
    Rise: 11.25
    Inseam: 34.5 (unfinished, unhemmed, uncuffed)
    Leg opening: 8.35
