    Yeah, nice. I got the rope-striped one I linked earlier yesterday. 155 for the jacket and 120 for the pants. :D

    I had no idea the maker could be caruso. The other stuff i ordered shipped already today but not this stuff.

    How does the Rugby fit compare to RLBL Anthony? Comparable?

    Yeah that one is from earlier this year, its a steal at 155+120 - porblem is I already had a similar suit from Rugby.. Congrats though.


    Yeah I would say so. It's probably just as slim, shoulders a bit more relaxed maybe..

    I think that's changed. I have a Bradford 3 piece 40L that fits like a 38R. But I tried one on in store yesterday, 40R, and it was big on me... while the 40L older one is tight on me.



    2 things:

    a. Calling them will be no help; you really think they know anything?

    b. The biggest piece of evidence, price, suggests that it's not fully canvassed. It makes absolutely no sense for them to waste money making it fully canvassed and charging that price.

    a. yeah the customer service won't but when the product specialists call or email me back we will get some real help

    b. FE Castleberry says they are canvassed.. that is the biggest piece of evidence to me. In the preppy world he knows what he is talking about... As well as a few other blogs claim they are fully canvassed so a bit more of validity into his statement.



    oh and did some digging:

    Rugby themselves say it is fully canvassed...

    Regarding the Marlow pricing discrepancy I had to call back and ask him to match the website price, which he did of course, but acted like it was an accommodation rather than an error. Strange. Anyway, 49% off :slayer:

    Ended up going in to the physical store today. Got the discount without the invite (I had one, but they didn't want it).

    Found out a couple interesting things:
    - They still produce the Marlow PTB's even though it's not on their website. I thought it was old stock, but that doesn't seem to be the case.
    - They don't carry any McCallums anymore at any of the stores whatsoever.
    - Some of the more common-looking shoes i.e. Sandersons seem to be online only, surprisingly.
