    Up for sale is an incredible new-with-tags Corneliani mainline suit.

    The fabric on this suit is really something. It's a lush virgin-wool/silk blend with a RIDICULOUSY soft hand. Drapes incredibly well too. Must be seen to be believed. You will not be disappointed.

    I've handled a lot of Corneliani suits, and this one has some of the best fabric. That's saying a lot. Corneliani sources fabrics for its suits from some of the best mills in Italy. This suit is no exception.

    This particular suit is based off Corneliani's slimmest cut, the "Mantua." As an added bonus, it features SOFT SHOULDERS. Very "SF approved"

    The awesome fabric and full canvas construction makes this suit a true staple workhorse for SF newcomers and regulars alike.


    Suit Specs:

    -Made in Italy by Corneliani
    -Midweight fabric (84% virgin wool / 16% silk)
    -Full canvas construction
    -High armholes
    -Low two-button stance
    -Double vents
    -Jacket fully lined with bemberg
    -Flat front pants
    -Slim cut with great trim waist
    -Will generally need little or no alterations off the rack (aside from pants hemming)

    Brooks Brothers Fitzgerald half canvas suits go for $998. I am offering this full canvas Corneliani at $775. The fits are very similar, but obviously this is of much higher construction quality.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The MSRP on Corneliani mainline suits is about $2100, which turns into over $2200 when you factor in local sales tax. So consider this a deal.

    $775 shipped CONUS/Canada OR BEST OFFER

    Inquire for international shipping rates.

    PayPal or Postal Money order. As is implied with all SF classified listings, the sale is final. Sold as is.

    First one to pay gets the item. I reserve the right to issue refunds.

    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Tagged a size 38L US / 48L EU, but could fit a 38R person

    Approximate measurements (reference ONLY):

    Shoulders: 17.85
    Chest: 20.25
    Sleeve: 26.25
    Length base of collar: 30.75

    Waist: 32
    Rise: 9.5
    Inseam: factory basted 34.5 with 3.75 tucked into the fold (unfinished and unhemmed)
    Leg opening: 8.0
