    I was in Filenes Basement Boston the other day since they are having their big suit event (basically it's like 20 - 25% off any suit).  I don't know if this is going on in other cities, but if it is, please be kind enough to alert me to any high end stuff in 38R. [​IMG] Anyways, they had the most beautiful "soft 3 button" charcoal gray Isaia suit, which was incorrectly tagged a 38R (it was actually a 36R, which I found out after I realized it was very snug fitting).  But, I could immediately tell that Isaia is now my absolute ideal suit.  WOW.  What a great cut.  And the suit was so stylish -- double vent, ticket pocket.  And only $700 after the sale to boot.  Any 36Rs should definitely inquire.  Anyways, I also saw something INCREDIBLY funny.  Filene's had a rack labeled "Zegna. $599..".  A ton of them on the rack.  So it would be $450 after the sale.  Good deal.  So I head on over to the rack and what do I see on the suit sleeve -- Tessuto Zegna. [​IMG]  They were passing off those crappy Tessuto Zegnas as real Zegnas.  Hah.  I'd expect it on Ebay, but a freaking  department store?  By the way, they were absolute crap.

    Isaia has lots of different models - make a note of the model name in the pocket if you can, so you know which model you are looking for next time.
