    Help Identify Suit from "Sneaky Pete"

    I just finished binging Sneaky Pete on Amazon Prime (I recommend both seasons, BTW). In Season 1, episode 10, Giovanni Ribisi wears a suit that I'd like to identify or find a close facsimile. The best picture I can find is below.

    It's a grey material with a sheen, but not an overbearing shininess. It looks like there is pick stitching on the notch lapels. No idea if it is custom or OTR, but I believe that costume designers do a lot of custom work.

    Any ideas?

    I'm guessing it's a grey sharkskin material. Could be off the rack or custom made for the show. Nearly impossible to know.

    The Spier medium gray sharkskin may be a good alternative if you're looking to steal the look:

    (there's also a slim fit if that's your build instead, I just linked the first one on the list)

    The S&M thread (not that kind, speaking of the canuckistanian tailor ) on SF surely has photos in real life; a properly-syntaxed google search (site-specific) would probably yield some results.

    The S&M sharkskin doesn't have much sheen to it (which I prefer).

    I meant no offense, just stating fact.

    Yes I have several ideas, but the most relevant one is this,

    https://www.articlesofstyle.com/shop...harcoal?id=293

    Not cheap but definitely of excellent quality considering Articles of Style contract Southwick to make all their suits.

    Clearly sir, you are asking about the wrong suit. You should be asking where to get that magnificent Tux!
