    That's a great dogtooth pattern. Suit looks nice, lots of potential to dress it up/down in different ways

    my sentiments exactly. Thank goodness I'm a 40R (well, more a 41R). But still very very tempted. Even though I have too many suits now, even though I have spent too much too [​IMG]

    This is my first three piece, and my first "casual" suit. Do you think I can break the pieces and wear them separately? And if so, how?

    Sure! The jacket would work as a casual sportcoat, maybe with cords? Plus, naturally, omitting the waistcoat (althoughj I find it hard to do that [​IMG] ). How about the trousers alone?

    I love it, Especially since you can use pants or jacket separately.

    Is there a rear buckle adjuster on the trousers?

    Nope. No adjuster on the trousers, and I'll probably have to have them altered. Seller measured them as a 31" waist.

    Brand new here. Please be gentle. This suit has me very excited. I'm a college professor who actually likes to dress like a professional (unlike my slobby colleagues).

    I think this suit would look rather good in a wood-paneled lecture hall this fall in front of some of my fine undergraduates. Conveniently enough, I'm a 42L.

    I don't think you're going to find a much better deal. Three piece? Cashmere blend? Identifiable designer name? For under $275? I'm not a professor, but I think this would certainly work for that. Maybe not all three pieces in the classroom (it screams country). I pulled the trigger before someone else snatched it away.

    Also, if it turns out it doesn't fit, you should have no problem selling the suit.

    I think you did great and the suit is very nice.

    My question is, How can sellers sell these Polo's at such a low price? They must get them very for very low wholesale prices to do this. There are many on Ebay selling RL, RLPL, and Polo at very deep discount. Anyone have any idea how they do it?

    Your are damn fucking skippy it would look good that way.
    Granted, this is tweed and the Polo suit isn't, but it's the same idea:

    I really wish more professors would dress like the learned, scholarly folk they're supposed to be.
