    This is a listing for an incredible, new-with-tags Corneliani mainline suit. It features full canvas construction. Made in Italy to the highest standards.

    I purchased this suit BNWT from forum member jrd617 but it is too big for me. This was back before I knew my measurements and was just using my size to make online purchases. It's big enough all the way around that in my opinion it's not feasible to tailor it down to a satisfactory fit for my 42R frame. In any event, the suit is fantastic and just as described when I purchased it. I have fully plagiarized jrd617's description below as it is accurate and much more poetic than anything I could concoct. The listed price is the same amount I paid him for it as well.

    3 of the photos are taken with flash and 2 are taken without. In normal lighting conditions the suit is a medium-dark blue, bordering on navy. Close ups show the texture of the fabric. If you are interested but unsure of the color, fabric, or anything else please let me know and I can take additional pics.


    This is a listing for an incredible, new-with-tags Corneliani mainline suit. It features full canvas construction. Made in Italy to the highest standards.

    It is tagged a 44R US / 54R EU, and fits true to size. (See measurements below)

    The quality of the 55% wool, 45% flax (linen) fabric on this suit is superb. Would make an excellent warm weather suit. The linen content in the fabric will let in the air, and the wool content will help the suit to resist wrinkles Corneliani sources fabrics from some of the best mills in the world for its suits. This suit is no exception. It would make an excellent addition to any closet.

    The color of the fabric can be described as blue. The pattern/weave can be described as "herringbone." Please note that due to the fabric was designed to have "slubs." These are slight imperfections in the weave. Many sartorial connessiuers like these slubs on linen suits. They add a nice visual detail when the suit is viewed up close. Returns will not be accepted.

    The MSRP on this suit is about $2200 before tax. So consider this a deal on an amazing suit in a rare size!
