    CC and Trend are fused. The few I've seen up close tend to be cut slimmer, but that's about it.

    Yeah, I wouldn't touch the "CC" line. My experience is also that this is a fused suit. I thought the Trend line was canvas though.

    Trend (at least the ones I've seen and the one I own) are half-canvas, not full.

    It's a great price, fused or not. I would go for it.

    That was its primary attraction...I figured CC wasn't likely to hit the quality of the main line (which again, I have to admit ignorance about) but at the price its listed...

    Let me throw out a little love for CC here. I own a CC and love it. The fit and cut are fabulous. No, it's not nearly as nice of a suit as my Corneliani Linea Sartoria, but it's a nice suit, and if you can get one for $400 or less, it's a good deal.

    My sister just advised me not to buy it. She wondered if I was angling for a banker's job with a suit like that.

    I think, despite its pinstripe nature, that it could be dressed down.

    is 48XL even that easy to find? i probably wouldn't go for it, but then, at 43L or 44L, i've got good options.

    one thing - the 50 inch measurement notwithstanding, it's seems to be actually tagged as a 58 Euro chest, not a 48XL. and 58XL is probably designed for about a 46 inch chest. you might want to clear that up before going anything further.
