    I'm seeing them at around $400.

    An additional 10% off by using the SF link at STP. Thanks J!

    The link works. It doesn't appear until checkout.

    This thread is like a smack in the face. Great deals on Cornelianis and not a single one my size.

    I'm used to getting smacked in the face like this. Did you see all the Gianluca Isaia Napoli suits and jackets, too? Nothing in your size there either, I believe. I'm pretty sure we're similar sizes. But I've had 2 clothing store owners tell me (and a tailor hint) that I should consider wearing XL coats. So i've given up on RTW suits and jackets almost completely and I'm primarily using MTM and WW Chan.

    Yep, same problem there. I just can't understand why my/our size is so rare. Spectacular sale prices are common on coats at the large end of the spectrum ... why so few in ours?

    The worst part for me is that Corneliani fits so well, if only I can find my size. I've been tempted lately to go with Polo MTM for a nice charcoal three-piece. What MTM have you tried? Any stand out as particularly compatible with our body type?

    Try NONE. I can't remember the last time I saw one of their high-end suits in a 38. And they rarely have high-end trousers in size 32. Very frustrating.

    What about those chuka boots from SM? Does anyone own them? Are they dressy or more casual? What would you use them with?

    Someone please talk me out of buying them. That is my size.

    If you want to be talked out of it, the toe is a quite round. It's not sleek, and certainly more casual than dressy. I wouldn't wear them with a suit. Also, they are blake stitched, so are more prone to leaking in rainy weather.

    If you dont want to be talked out of it, they are a great deal at that price. The leather has a nice variegated color that is very subtle.

    Well, I did find some Corneliani trousers in 32 from there a few months ago, but yes, almost never any good 38-sized suits - a shame. I am thinking that the 50 (40 US) maybe a close fit for me though, considering the way Corneliani suits fit. As long as the shoulders are 18" - 18.5" across all I would need to do is tweak the collar height and shorten the sleeves a bit.

    If you mean the calfskin rather than the suede, buy them now. I have them and I love them. The leather is supple and lovely, and they're very comfortable. I'm tempted to pick up another pair.

    I believe STP was sold out of these for a while. I imagine the 9.5 is a return. If you want it, get it while you can.

    Everything in size 9.5 that STP sells is complete crap. Please avoid.
