    Used dark blue Brioni for Bergdorf Goodman suit for sale. I very recently picked it up on Ebay, but misread the measurements, so here it goes. It's 3 butto, but the highest button rolls nicely when worn. I'd call it a 3-roll-2.5. For a 42, it's quite slim. Much slimmer than my other Brioni suits, and suits like Zegna Roma, Caruso Sartoria Parma, etc. in 42. This could def. work as a 40L too.

    Price includes shipping (world wide from Norway)

    The good
    No rips, holes or anything like that in the outer fabric. It's in a pretty staple and nice dark blue color. The twill fabric has some blue and some darker colors, so I guess you can call it solid.

    The bad
    It's quite long. 33 BOC, which is very long by today's standards.
    Jacket lining has wear in the armpit areas.

    The ugly
    It was sold as "excellent" condition, but upon inspection I noticed that the trouser crotch lining has some stains/discoloration, along with the inside of waistband. I'd get it dry-cleaned.

    Specs:
    -100% wool, blue twill with alternating thread colors (blue and very dark blue). Looks solid.
    -Full canvass construction
    -Dual vents
    -3 button, single breasted
    -3" notch lapels
    -Medium padded shoulders, similar to RLPL suits.
    -Functional sleeve buttons
    -Flat front trousers, cuffed.

    Measurements:

    Shoulders: 19"
    Chest: 22.5"
    Waist: 19.5"
    BOC Length: 33"
    Sleeves: 26.5"

    Inseam: 35" (1.5" cuffs + .75" tucked under. 3.75" extra if worn without cuffs)
    Waist: 17.5" x 2 (+ 2.5")
    Rise: 12"
    Cuff width: 9"
    Knee width: 10.5"
