    100% wool with grey/red serrated micro-stripe

    $4995.00 Retail

    Very recent (Presumably from the A/W 2012-2013 Collection)

    Chigi 22 Model - described as a "classic" fit but still fits contemporary with a strong roman style shoulder. This was one of Brioni's best selling models during the last few years second only to the Nomentano and Brunico. The Chigi is one of the fits utilized in their "24 kt Gold thread suits" produced in 2012.

    3 button cuffs (3 seemed to come standard in this particular fit instead of the usual 4). The button cuffs have not been fully finished (i. e. not made functional which is good for the buyer since that makes them easier to be shortened/adjusted)

    • Two-button front with notched label

    • Convertible flap-besom pockets, single chest barchetta pocket and three interior slit pockets

    • Classic fit with lightly padded shoulders and side vented back; 6'' drop

    • Jacket is canvased and fully lined in logo jacquard sateen; pants are half lined to knee

    • Flat front trousers with french zip fly and extended button at belt looped waist

    • Tailored darting at front waist for fit; angled front pockets with button close rear besom pockets

    Hand Made in Italy

    Measurements (taken off of actual jacket laying flat with second button appropriately buttoned)
    •Chest (armpit to armpit across chest): 20.5 inches
    •Sleeve Length (shoulder seam down the arm to end of cuff): 25.5 Inches
    •Back Length (from the BASE of collar at seam down back to end): 30.5 Inches
    •Shoulder seam to shoulder seam horizontally across the back: 18 Inches

    measurements (taken off of actual pants flat)
    •waist (hip to hip across top): 16 inches
    •Front Rise: 11 inches
    •Inseam: 31 inches
    •leg opening (seam to seam laid flat): approx. 8 inches (with an width at knee of 9 inches from seam to seam)

    An absolutely amazing suit from one of the best labels there is. The wool has an amazingly soft hand and exudes a very subtle sheen. Drapes flawlessly and is complemented by a strong roman-esque style shoulder.…Just a tad too long on my frame and I just picked up a Tom Ford so i'm letting this one go…

    This does have some conditional issues. The 'made in Italy' tag typically located at the neck is gone. There is a small “nick” tear in the fabric at the left sleeve cuff (see pic below). Right at the side fold so it could probably be patched and not be noticed at all (or could be completely removed if you have to get the sleeves shortened). Slight wear at neck. There is a small residue stain on the back of one of the leg pants. I haven’t talked to my cleaner lady personally about this but sent her a pic and she said it looks like it could be removed. This suit probably needs a trip to the cleaners for a decent pressing.

    I will include an additional set of genuine horn Brioni buttons so the buyer can add buttons to the cuffs if he so desires. (They are a different color shade though…)

    Asking $600 SHIPPED for this AMAZING piece.

    Wanna see what goes into this suit? Have a watch...

    ALL PICTURES ARE OF THE ACTUAL SUIT FOR SALE. ALL SALES ABSOLUTELY FINAL. Once its yours, its yours so study all the posted pics and measurements carefully. Suit is pre-owned and has definite conditional issues as highlighted above. No returns especially due to fit so check the measurements.
