Does anyone know if Brooks has plans to further expand this line? I love the fit of it but it is extremely hard to find and they have very limited fabric selection. It's possibly one of the best value slim fit suits on the market if you can find it on sale.

If you like it, then buy more at retail and they'll get the message.

Anyone have any measurements of these?

I love the grey flannel, but tried my normal size in store and found it ridiculously small.

Considering going from a 40/42 R to a 44L (for a reasonable jacket length)!

Sorry for hijacking the thread, I also wish they would expand the line.

I asked and heard the same thing.
It looks like they were just testing the waters to see if there is any interest in their true slim fit suits. They will likely have more options in their spring collection.

bumping this up to get more opinions on these suits.... seem to be good value, made in italy, well-fitting, with great fabric sources (i.e. Loro Piana)... just cant tell if the fit is too trendy.

Any thoughts on how it would compare fit-wise to Isaia s/v-body or EZ milano?

I have one in charcoal with a muted pinstripe in 44r. It's certainly more "fitted" than any other BB suit I've owned but I don't consider the fit to be trendy at all. It's a good quality suit and I always receive a compliment or two when wearing it.

I agree with OP. Great fits, nice style bad selection of fabrics.
