    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3936013271 Measurements seem almost spot on perfect for me, minor alterations at the most with taking in the waist on the trousers... this is almost exactly what I was looking for in a pinstripe and more or less what I was going to have Chan make next month. A bit more than I am used to paying but sounds immaculate, if not I guess there is a money back guarantee and this seller has good feedback.

    Beautiful suit, and it looks to be a fairly recent Brioni. Also,  momnmaid is a very reputable seller, though they primarily deal with lower end suits. They were one of the VERY first to do this, and still 0 negative feedbacks..

    edit - that is, no negs in last 12 months. But still, 5902 positives to 6 negatives is a pretty darn good ratio.

    I wonder about the size of the chest panel on this brioni, i own some 46 brionis that have a measured 25" in the chest that fit me great, while I usually wear other manufacturers with 23.5"-24" chest measurements, I wonder if that is because of the drape?

    gorgeous suit... go for it. I need a 38 waist, if I were to get a 40" waist could they take it in?

    I'm actually getting closer to a 36, so how much can they take it in? I've been working out a lot and getting back into athletic form.
