    Check out this Canali (I hope I haven't attracted bidders). I like how it looks from afar, but the upclose shots I can't tell what kind of weave this suit has. Anyone care to venture a guess? Canali suit

    I'm not sure, but I think that the pattern might be refered to as "bird's eye".

    Whatever it is, it's beautiful, and exactly my size (except for the inseam). Don't worry, I won't steal that one away from you.

    I agree: bird's eye. Get it -- it's a steal.

    Wow, ended without any bids. If you were interested, I'd recommend emailing the seller and ask if it is still available. You never know, he might even let you have it for the $99 and include shipping himself.

    I also call that a nailhead. Probably my least favorite weave

    Any votes for a tic weave? I have both nailshead and birdseye suits and these seems different.

    I call that a nailhead as well - definitely not my favorite. Reminds me of the eighties. And from the looks of it, this suit could've easily have been.

    I thought we all wanted quality suits that would last for 20 years. In that case, that was a nice complement.

    Definately nailhead, but I am in the club that thinks it is an excellent buy.

    Now, that is the type of attention to details, that only this forum would appreciate.
