1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    A couple of NWT Lardini suits. Very nice fabric and quality - Lardini makes suits and SC for Ferragamo and Brooks Brothers. Retail on these is over $1k (putting this price at over 70% off). Both have very nice Neopolitan/spalla camicia style soft shoulders (flannel shoulder is softer).

    Asking $400 $360 $340 $320 $305 $290! $275! CONUS, $320 Worldwide

    I am afraid that in your zeal to sell these very nice and well-priced suit(s) you have latched
    on to a Style Forum shibboleth: "Spalla Camicera" From the photos provided there is
    no basis to use this description. Please see the following description of the Neapolitan
    shoulder and Spalla Camicera by Manton:

    it's spalla camicia and you can tell from teh shoulder pics of the first one that it is indeed spalla camicia although the slight roping is a little odd

    The shoulder is tailored in spalla camicia style. I know terms get over (and incorrectly) used on this forum, but these are true to that style. If you would like, I will sell you the suit so that you may inspect it in person. Here is a comparison from the familiar article that you quoted:

    As for the roping, I believe that may be an artifact of how the suit is hanging on the hanger.
