Ok - it keeps giving.

Bb gf suits - hand made in bk (my hometown) are reduced from $1700 to $250 at the northern ga bb outlet.

They have two styles:

One lightish gray herringbone double breasted - full range of sizes.

The other: single breasted charcoal grey with light blue stripes - a true beauty - only a few sizes 38 r, 40 r and 43r. Overall trim cut.

I couldn't believe they didn't have the second one in my size.

These are marked as 499 with 50 percent off on the discount suit rack. Basted sleeves. Full canvas.

Yeah, that charcoal grey with blue pinstripes is super nice, but sadly not my size. I went back and checked the rack several times to make sure.

Got one of the charcoal pinstripes in 38. The salesperson asked if I was part of styleforum.ORG. Which one of you fruits has been blabbing?

The first rule of styleforum is YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT STYLEFORUM.

The pants fit euro-ish slim and can be taken in. The "6" drop is more of a "7 to 8." Also the suit jacket shoulders are slightly slim.

I agree that it is rather slim. I have about 5-6 other Martin Greenfields (GF) and always bought a 42R. This one, a 43R, fit just like the 42s and was perfect for me.

I didn't mention that I was part of sf - one of the lurkers here must have mentioned something - yeah, it's better to not mention that around. I was there incognito anyways - black fleece and jeans.

How is the fit of the DB gray suit? Is it a 4 season suit? Thanks.

Regards.

I tried a few other outlets in nor cal -- they don't carry GF, but everything (or many things) are 50% off. Hence, a gray 3B suit is around $170...

Hmmm... tempting. Has anyone bought one of these sight unseen? The sales people at the outlets are not particularly good at describing the cut, model, etc.

Derm, I don't suppose you saw if there were Black Fleece pieces on sale as well? I'd love to get a BF suit as well.
