Yes, I have now two Partenopea Suits. Quality is outstanding.
The pants are fuller & cut better than suitsupply. They drape nicely. @Monkeyface
Thanks for the replies guys! I might just get a SP suit on ebay sometime soon!
Noodles, I think your brand snobbery might just be brand ignorance. Can you quantify the difference between Made In Italy Polo and RLBL?
Also, given the retail prices of PRL and RLBL, I think your $800 asking price is optimistic. Consider that used MIL PRL suits go in the $200-300 range. (Ask me how I know...)
Our noodles is in denial about his sizing. He "wants" to be a 38R in his head, but he's clearly a 40R.
40R is nothing to be ashamed of. Especially if you're a 6 footer

Exactly. Who wants to be built like a mic stand?
Is this a safe space to post some potential tie purchases and get comments/ feedback? Was thinking about pulling the trigger on this navy floral print...
This is about the safest place on the forum.
That is an absolutely gorgeous tie.
If you plan on buying a few more over the next few months, or if you already have a navy neat or two in your wardrobe, pick it up immediately. But I wouldn't rely on a tie with that much visual/textual interest to be my navy staple.
nothing objectionable about that tie, but it's not my cup of tea.
as claghorn says, definitely not a staple either. get a pindot tie instead
I actually don't think a grenadine makes for a good staple in a limited tie rotation. Too much wear and tear for that weave. I don't think any of my grenadines get worn more than once a month.
B Rad, how big is your current rotation and what are your plans for expansion (i.e. are you just looking at that one tie or planning a long term overhaul)?
