    Got an email this morning from threedifferent.com about a blowout sale on their Boglioli spring/summer inventory...

    Suits for $160

    Sportcoats for $130

    Pants for $48 - great price for very nice (Incotex style) trou

    Great deals, but beware you will be charged duties in the US - I recently paid $35 duty on a $230 suit from them. Also, Boglioli fits small, so size up on jackets.

    How do their sportcoats fit lengthwise? I need a short, but they seem to carry only regulars.

    Length tends to be true to size.

    How on earth can a 1/2 cotton 1/2 mohair suit from Boglioli only cost $250 (marked down to $160)?

    That's incorrect, they probably retailed for around $1600 I would think.

    I am not sure about the quality of Boglioli offered there. There is the $250 range, and there is the $850 range. There must be some difference there in term of construction (not just materials).

    These are def. cheaper fabircs, i.e., cotton, polyamid, etc... Perhaps nice for a casual suit/jacket. Boglioli, in general, fits a bit snug, so I would size up 1.

    I have a Boglioli cotton suit and I love it. I'd buy another, but they don't have any 46 sizes. My advice (due to owning one suit only, so YMMV) is to size down, rather than up if in doubt.

    I already have a couple of the S/S sportcoats and a cotton/linen suit. Great quality for the price. Definitely not crap

    How about VAT? I might buy a cotton cream suit... Prices are unbelievable.

    I've not experienced any problems with them on my 3 past orders. Quick shipping from Italy to US. Have not had to return anything.

    Could just be me but something about the suits makes them look cheap.

    That's because they are ill-fitting on that model. They don't look cheap at all:

    Just ordered a dark grey wool Boglioli jacket (98 euros) and a pair of Buttero sneakers.

    I bought before 3 Boglioli jackets (especially this K jacket in linen that I love) and some Lidfort shoes from them. Fast and good shipping price. The Boglioli pants(or suits) seem a very good deal, but no pair in cotton I've tried before fit me well.
