    Hi,
    I recently purchased for a good deal a Canali Navy Blue with Subtle Checkers. Size 36 Regular, and it is the 15XXX model, which I understood from their website and various sources to be a more modern and slimmer fitting fit. I purchased it from TopShelf Ebay Seller, which I understood again based on various sources to be a reliable and trusted seller when it comes to suits.

    I wanted to hear if there are any opinions on the suit, regarding the color and design. I would be wearing it once a week or so, and I was wondering also if it was a little bit too unique for once a week wear without it being noticed or remembered too much. I haven't received it yet, but I have attached pictures. I am pretty confident regarding the fit, as I am a 36R across the board even in the slimmest fitting suits.

    Thanks

    It’s a nice suit and nice fabric. I’m not terribly familiar with Canali’s different styles and fits, but it seems like you already did that homework.

    I think the pattern is subtle enough that you could do that easily. Of course, solids are always the safest choice, but I think you’re fine with this particular selection.

    I hope it fits well and you’re able to enjoy it with minimal alteration.

    I have very bad eyesight but to me the check (if any at all) is so subtle to almost look like fabric's weave. It is not a check of different colour, which I agree would stand out and would be on the casual/flashy side.

    As long as it fits well, you should be alright.

    Nice looking suit. I suspect it will blend in to a suit rotation easily.

    The suit looks fine and should be of good quality. Assuming it fits you well, now it's time to get on with wearing and enjoying your new suit! ;)

    You say 36R; tag says 46R. I hope you meant to say you're a 46R, otherwise the suit is literally 10 sizes too large.

    I do like the suit though. Really like the pattern.

    If it's European sizing, it would say 46R, which is US/UK 36R.

    I believe Canali is in the habit of labeling their suits in euro sizes. I may be wrong.
