    Member mainy of affiliate nSuited, has just liquidated his remaining stock from Venanzi. $300 for remaining suits and sportscoats is normally a steal; $300 for things from D'Avenza and Belvest is highway robbery:

    The 42s medium brown glen plaid is to drool over:

    I have purchased Belvest suits from nSuited and they are first class suits, comparable to the mainline Zegnas and perhaps even the RLPL I own. Is that heresy?

    In old-school B&S style:

    • Bump and +1 for Mainy, long time B&S seller who I bought my first B&S item ever from. Great seller in my book, I wish he got more deals like he did back in 09+.
    • I snagged some Venanzi stuff from him that were just flat out fantastic at practically steal prices. If I was the size in any of the stuff he had left, I'd bust open the piggy bank for it. We're talking top, top notch bits.
    • +1 for Mainy again, just 'cuz.

    If I was going to wager, the reason these are still avail 3 days later is because the current B&S just doesn't work. Hence this thread, but seriously - those would have been gone in hours in the old B&S. Bumps would have kept it at the top, enough eyes would have seen it, and it would have -poofed-. By the time the average member checked in they'd be reading "already gone" messages. This isn't a chicken and egg problem; sellers aren't going to spend the time if they're stuff isn't visible/find'able.

    Yep, I know - that's what we're trying to fix here. Here's hoping we can make a dent, but people need to get the word out to repost/link good B&S finds here. This thread needs that level of enthusiasm+activity if it's going to make an impact. Just thinking out loud...

    I see so many good shoe deals on this site, but with me being a 12E I almost never see them in my size.

    8.5 is a pretty common size - those need to be snapped up by someone ASAP. Go sell some blood if you're short on cash.
