    It's pretty similar, but I do think the chest works better on me than on Noodles (at least judging by these two pictures)

    I'd say a positive example of the free market economy at work

    Yeah, the trousers (based on his reporting of the measurements) are about 2" too long, and I will likely take .75-1" off the sleeves.

    What Polo model (usually in the inner tag)? Would love to hunt one down in my size. Looks fantastic. Shorten the sleeves and the fit is almost @ bespoke level IMO

    Neither of the Polo suits with me today lists the model in plain English, just alphanumeric codes followed by "BLUE LABEL".

    Clearly photoshop. It would have said bearded prick otherwise.

    I think this is partly due to:
    a) The angle
    b) Noodles' inability to take a half decent photograph.

    Can you take a picture of the tags? Blue label is usually corneliani, though I think this might be slightly older...

    I have the same suit in charcoal. It's made by Corneliani but no indication of model.

    Here's the tag from the listing:

    I'm pretty sure that's an older corneliani label.
