Success: M. Valentino Suit

5037 Views 10 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  dwmcqueen
Greetings All,

I went ahead (based on reviews here) and purchased from Jeff (the Wizard of Aahs) this suit

It arrived yesterday. I have a barrel chest and have a very difficult time finding a coat that doesn't gape. Based on my barrel chest and small waist Jeff advised M. Valentino over Baroni. Good call: it fits beautifully, the cloth is beautiful and the extra chest room really helps. Very nice draping. Am very satisfied.

My M. Valentino (navy, peak lapel, 2-button) is identical to the suit pictured in his ebay listing (although I contacted him off-ebay and got an AAAC discount).

He recommended a 42L for me based on my height, but it arrived much too long, so I exchanged it for a 42R, which is what I should have ordered in the first place, as it's what I wear in almost everything. I also should have known to get the 42R because its measurements were in-line with my other coats that fit well.

I agree that the armholes are medium-sized. Definitely smaller than the JAB sportcoats I have, which isn't saying much at all, but not high & tight.

It doesn't have a "Made In" tag, just "Marco Valentino Milano" and "Austrialian(!!?) Wool."
