    Was in the need of a new navy suit so I picked this up on bluefly for about $460 after various discounts. Cerruti suit Though not indicated in the Bluefly description, it's from the "shapes" line, with which I am not familiar. Any comments w/r/t the quality vis a vis what I paid? Thanks.

    I'm no expert, but I did spend a considerable amount of time trying suits. Here are my impressions:
    - decent construction. It has a partial canvas so it's somewhere between a Boss and a Canali.
    - the Shapes line seems to have great fabric, at least 120s if not 150s. The fabric has a slight sheen to it, which is nice since mine is a charcoal-slate grey suit and would be very dull otherwise.
    - the fit is a little fuller than I would like (I like the fit of an Armani), although not as conservative as a Canali. I plan on having the waist taken in a little.
    - shoulders are not as natural as I would like; there is a decent amount of padding.
    - I paid $415 for mine in New York. The store was having a moving sale and was clearing out their inventory. They also had Ferres for $250 (crappy fabric and average construction), Canali and Armani for $600.

    Overall, I was very happy with what I got for the money.
