    I am really bummed to be selling this suit. Unfortunately it is just a little too big in the shoulders and a little too long. Made in Italy for Davide Cenci, I believe by Belvest, the suit is a navy worsted wool (I think a worsted flannel), with a beautiful chalk windowpane. It is fully canvassed, three-roll-two, and double-vented. The pants are double-reverse pleated, and have a 1.75" cuff.

    Lots of beautiful details on this one. For one thing, the fabric itself is unreal. The last picture shows the color best (please excuse the flash). The three-roll-two lapels are nicely proportioned. The sleeves are non-functioning, so they can be adjusted with ease. The pant cuffs have an extra piece of fabric sown in the inside to protect the cuff from the heel and help the legs drape well. There is a coin pocket sewn in just below the waistband above the left pocket. The waistband has belt loops as well as suspender buttons. Pants are cuffed and pleated.

    It's tagged size EU 50, which equates to a US 40. As for the measurements:

    Shoulder-to-shoulder: 18"
    BOC: 30.5"
    Sleeve (from shoulder): 25.5"
    P2P: 21"
    Waist (half; at second button): 20.25"

    Waist (half): 18"
    Rise: 12"
    Cuffs: 1.75"
    Inseam: 30" (with the cuffs and an extra 1.5" of fabric to let out)

    $399 $339 $279 $229 including shipping CONUS

    Getting crazy cheap now; grab it before someone else does!

    Amazing suit; sending pm.

    And as an aside, visited Cenci for the first time last week; unbelievably friendly staff.
