    I was looking tonight on STP to see if any of the Belvest suits that hit last month had been reduced and there was not a single suit there. There was only 1 sportcoat. Did anybody buy one of these? I am wondering if they ever got shipped from their source.

    Yes, so was I, that's why I would like to find out where they went.

    Guys:

    Well, one of them went to me.

    Yeah, I bought one about a month ago just after they were listed. I look at STP regularly, and recognized the opportunity.

    It is a navy blue with alternating frence blue and light blue pinstripes. Absolutely stunning! An excellent purchase, if I do say so myself. I took it to my tailor and had him alter it, plus add working sleeve buttons.

    I will be wearing it tonight as we are meeting friends at the nicest place in town to celebrate our birthdays.

    Carpe Diem!

    Ranchsooner,

    I thought that you might be interested in seeing my new Belvest suit. Last night, we went to Todd Jurich's Bistro in Norfolk, VA to celebrate a friend's and my birthday.

    I think STP never took delivery of the majority of the Belvest stock. They had most of them listed as "soon to arrive" or something like that.

    That was my thinking. If I remember, there weren't very many sizes in stock. If that is the case, I'm not sure why they would risk irritating customers by taking orders without the certainty of delivery. I will be curious to see if they pop up a few months from now.

    CitizenK,

    Nice look. Glad you were able to get one while they were there. Just curious, what size did you get?

    Guys.

    Thanks for the compliments. Though I suppose that it would be difficult for anyone to look bad is such a beautiful suit!

    I bought a size 44R, and it is a black label Belvest.

    Regards!
