    Those lapels don't look too good to make that price true.

    People above 105 st tend to like 6" lapels.

    I highly recommend this Suit as it is "MOST WANTED SUIT***BRAND NEW WITH TAGS***SUPER QUALITY AND WORKMANSHIP***WORKING SLEEVES BUTTON HOLES" Who can argue with that? Surgeon Cuffs ftw! [​IMG] I love the contrast stitching on the buttonholes.

    I always add a fully canvassed interlining to all my suits. It's a really handy feature if you want only the best in men's suiting.

    Don't you agree?

    I feel bad for Valentino Garavani (the "real" Valentino), having all those ripoffs of his name and random people trying to sell stuff that way.

    I wonder if they get away with it is because Valentino is his FIRST name and not his last? Can you not copyright a first name?

    I mean, you don't see many fake variations on "armani" or "dior" or "Versace" out there...


    If you read the description they say "RMANI" on some of them!

    This is the same seller as DaVinci Exclusive on EBay and is a fierce competitor with the Wizard of Aaahs.

    Not sure who to believe, each says the other sells fakes and crap etc. If I had to believe one I would hazard to go with Jeff from the Wizard (never bought from either one fwiw). Not sure why, he just seems a tad more reasonable and he has a point, full canvass, real wool for $150??

    Here is a recent thread from AAAC that eventually references these Gino Valentino suits. See Jeff's "passionate" last post.

    One of the sellers on this site was selling REAL Valentino suits for $299 in the sales area. I'm sure the OP is joking about considering buying these suits... but if you want Valentino, get real Valentino. Gino, mario, Jose, Fred, Timmy, Leonardo, whatever the variation... that ain't Valentino.
