Looks decent if you like pinstripes and the cut of Canali. Every Canali I ever tried on looked a bit too square and boxy on me. Canali is just kinda "meh" for me. I like the look of the fabric though.

It's a good suit for a good price, but the Super 150s concerns me if you plan on wearing the suit often.

It's a nice suit and Canali for the most part makes a very nice product. With the 25% cash back a person can get with Live.com, the deal is not bad. If it wasn't black.................I may consider the purchase myself.

That's a good price for the Canali Exclusive Collection line. Their fabrics are much nicer than the regular Canalis and more importantly, they have nice buttons, unlike mainline Canali that have the cheapest buttons of $1,000+ jackets.

The real question though is do you want a suit in S150s?

More creative than the usual spam, but a dude shows up and first post is a link to an eBay auction? Yeah, it might not be, but I'd say good chance.

Anywhoo, nice suit.

Keep in mind that is only a Drop 4!
The average 40 is a drop 6 or 7, and perhaps that is why the price is so low on this suit.

Do you wear a 40 jacket and 36 pants?
Trying to make a drop 4 look like a drop 7 may be tough and will require really good tailoring.

thanks, tags say its 42R and listing that it has 46 inch actual chest - I'm a bit confused why it says 40 in the auction title. I have 34' waist and 43' chest

I got your point now, guess I was to lazy to just copy and paste the pictures

Just took a second glance,

Shoulder-measured across at the widest point of the shoulder:19.75"

Pretty big for a 40r!
I love these guys that list two sizes to up the chances of a sale and leave you with a nasty tailoring job.
Walk away from it.

The tag reads Italian 52R. I believe the quick conversion is to subtract 10-12 to get the equivalent for your chest in inches, though at first glance it seems a bit sneaky to put both 40 and 42 in the listing. But then again for me, the difference in Canali is 10 to fit my bodytype but for Zegna a difference of 12 fits me well.

But that chest measurement still seems a bit big for the tagged size as well as your chest. I think you should pass on it.

You've got multiple sizes in the ad and a "NO REFUND" policy. Just walk.

Isn't it obvious something is wrong when they're selling a 3 thousand dollar suit for 600 bucks? Has the average American consumer gone completely unconscious?
