another beautiful coat. My navy SC is a 1'4 lined sammy with light padding. Fits similar to my Isaia sport coats, very soft.
I was referring to the general list this thread has compiled, not the smaller list dirnelli made. Thanks for the condescending reply though, always enjoy the self righteous elitism of some on here.
Try Brunello Cucinelli
Fitz for sure. JAB needs serious blade work and the cut isn't nearly as flattering. How did you score the BB Fitz jacket for $300?
That's a beautiful coat, excellent choice. For the record, 2k for a MTM coat of that quality, made in Italy, is a good price. I think everyone here is so accustomed to Ebay, shop the finest, or whatever discount store they scoff at full retail. However, you wanted customized details (patch pocket, surgeon cuff, single vent, etc...) which necessitated MTM or bespoke. Given your location, bespoke wasn't an option as expenses associated with traveling to NY for Napoli Su...
Are we so cynical we are now going to start trashing Isaia? Say what you want about their marketing (which, btw, has led to an explosion in popularity and growth for the brand), Isaia is one of the finest mens clothing companies in the world. 
at the bottom of the list there needs to be a differentiation between Z Zegna, Boss, Abboud, etc... and H&M, zara, calvin klein. While the former brands reputation exceeds their quality, there still exists a notable difference between their offerings and typical mall garbage like the latter. Also, Armani Collezioni, particularly the Giorgio and Sartorial Decco lines, are half canvassed, made in Italy, with good fabric and a modern cut. While not worth the retail price,...
Dollar for dollar its the best value on the market (Samuelsohn could make a good argument too). The thread linked above is a great resource. 
Boss is a great beater suit. The cut is pretty good, and maybe this is all in my mind, but the lower quality fabric is heavier and holds up to wear and tear better than my nicer, softer fabrics. Of course that could just be in my mind because I am less concerned with tearing the pants lol   BTW, I wish Isaia MTM were a beater suit for me lol Baller!
  My tailor certainly disagrees, however that doen't make him right. From my experience handling both garments (not deconstructing) I wouldn't say the quality even approaches Canali, let alone exceeds it.  I have also met many people who have had negative experiences, sometimes waiting almost a year to receive clothing. Even in Columbus, where to company was founded and David is from, the reputation is poor.   I am curious though, when did you began working for A&B? I...
