    Hate the pleats on Corneliani. Looks like a guy's got a box in his pants.

    I think it's quite nice. (Although I don't do DB myself.) I was just looking at a Joseph Abboud suit from this seller. [​IMG]

    It's a nice looking suit at a good price (if you are into DB jackets). I've never been able to wear Corneliani, though I've tried on a bunch of them over the years -- the slacks just don't fit right. They seem to be cut for a smaller man than the size would indicate. An Italian thing, perhaps.

    Nice looking suit, but it measures out to a 40S, not a 40R as advertised.  Plus, the sleeves are really long.  I can't tell from the photo whether the sleeves have faux buttonholes; if so, they may need to be shortened from the shoulder.

    I would agree that the jacket is fairly short (for a R) while the sleeves are fairly long. I agree that it is a decent deal if you like the DB corneliani look
