    http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws....MEWA:IT I would love to get hands on Kiton and DB suits. This may be a good buy if I get it under $400CAD (I doubt it though). But I am afraid that the lapels may be too wide, thus, creating not so current look. Plus I would love to re-cuff the pants to 2" or higher cuff, but I do not know if pants will have enough fabric for that. any feedbacks are welcome.

    The lapels are fine. That width is fairly typical for a Neapolitan suit. I worry about the jacket sleeves. The buttonholes are already cut. How do you know that your arms are the same length?

    Stick with cuff of 1 3/4" if you are 5'10" or taller, 1 5/8" if shorter.

    Cuff of 2" or more will throw off the balance of the trouser.

    Please.
