    I was wondering about opinions of  [​IMG] this suit from Isaia for summer. Anyone? [fixed link - j.]

    The link didn't work for me, but I like the stance and the construction of the shoulders. Classic look.

    It's made of Carlo Barbera fabric, which was raved about here on a recent thread as well. I'm just wondering, it might be a smidge too big in the chest -- it's 46 inches, and my chest measures about 42. 4 inches of breathing room might be OK, but if not, suits can be taken in OK at the chest, no? I've done it before, but when I was a novice and bought crappy stuff, with no idea whether or not I was ruining the fit of the suit.

    Thanks for your kind words. And I'm not at all proud of her [​IMG]
