    Probably this one:

    Raphael Raffaelli bespoke.

    Although, I have a black double breasted Canali that runs a close second:

    ^ kai, is the DB self striped?


    I have a theory that striped suits seem to attract the most compliments

    The Raph suit looks quite nice. The Canali is really not in the same league, but people do tend to notice, and comment upon, DB suits a whole lot often.

    From my own wardrobe, an A&S DB in Fresco 520 gets the most compliments. The DB cut stands out, and the 520s color is quite beautiful in natural light.

    The Raph is much better than the canali, which I imagine better be given the price difference. Also, I suspect that a 6x2 might work better on you than the 6x1.

    Very nice Raphael. The stripe is even with the edge of the lapel, which is excellent.

    That Raphael looks like it's made by an Englisman, bravo! :)

    I actually quite like the DB although I can't imagine it will have too many fans on here.
