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.

    Cesare Attolini is universally regarded as the maker one of the finest suits money can buy. See, for instance: http://robbreport.com/Robb-Recommends/Fashion/Cesare-Attolini

    This suit, sold at Domenico Vacca's atelier, is rendered in a superb medium gray cloth with slate blue pinstripes and certainly retailed for north of $4,000.00. It is a 3-button with high gorge notch lapels and double vents. The sleeves have working buttonholes, and there is extensive handwork basically everywhere (see pictures). Working flower buttonhole with flower loop behind, naturally. Coin pocket at the belt seam on the trousers.

    I wear a 40R, and this fits me like a 42S, which is about what it measures to -- were it not for my very long arms I would have it recut for me as the fabric and the work is amazing -- it is just slightly more bold than a 'staple' suit, just enough to make it feel as special as it is. Measurements below:

    Shoulder seam to seam: 18.5"
    Length, bottom of collar to hem: 30.5"
    Under arms: 21"
    Sleeve: 24.5"

    Waist: 18"
    Inside Leg: 28"

    Attolini labels are in the left breast, inside the right breast pocket, and in the trousers.Happy to answer any questions.
