    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws....MEWN:IT I wanted a solid navy suit, and this was more or less perfect for me, although at first glance, it appears that the chest is a little large, I usually wear around 46-47" and it measures 25" in the front, so I guess we'll see how the fit is when I get it.

    It's hard to tell from the (lousy) pictures. But, if it's in good condition, looks like you got a bargain.

    I got this suit, in fact, it needs no alteration, pretty much fits perfectly, great drape. I'm pretty happy about it.

    OK, I had thought this suit would still be a little big, but after trying it on tonight with a dress shirt and tie, it seems to fit PERFECTLY. Pretty amazing, I knew I was more or less a perfect 46R but I usually have to get my jackets brought in a bit around the waist, but the Brioni fit more or less perfectly, I guess it is a good match for a V torso. My other brioni suit was a 44R and was a pretty decent fit as well, a bit tighter in the shoulders but a little alteration made it a great fit.

    I will post some pics soon.

    From the picture, this suit appears to have an extraordinarily classy drape. Congrats.

    Suits are sometimes funny like that. One day you feel like it can fit a bit better, the next it looks so stunning on you you can't believe it's the same suit you were planning to alter. Such happened to me fairly recently: I thought a jacket I had could use some more waist surpression, but when I saw my reflection in a glass door as I was walking up to it, I thought to myself "Huh, it doesn't look so bad."

    Don't get too hung up on how a suit looks on you while you're standing perfectly still, ramrod straight, because you won't be, 90% of the time. If there are genuine fit problems, by all means correct them. However, needless alterations risk damage to the suit.

    Yeah, actually I was only pondering altering it upon reading the measurements from the vendor before I received the suit, as it is supposed to be a 25" chest across the front while I am more like 23-23.5". Once I actually received the suit, I was pleased to find it needed no alterations.
