Sam, I would probably pass on that Burberry label you show. It's kinda old and some of the construction I've seen hasn't been up to snuff. Be on the lookout for the following label: Much more recent and fabric quality has gone up. Better resale.
Here's the tag from my Zanella SC. I bought this new at Saks Off 5th about 2-3 years ago. I would say yes:
Agree on the captoe look for the PAs. That soho one is more to my liking. To complicate matters , here is the captoe on my Hale's in real world conditions, which I like. I know, I know the captoe is perforated but oh well.

Picked up a sweet navy BB made in Italy 90% cashmere 10% wool suit. My size! I don’t think I’ve ever owned an all mostly cashmere suit. Maybe more for colder weather? Feels breathable, though. I know there was some discussion about the BB Italy made stuff. Can provide pix and label tag if there’s any interest. Dropped it off at the drycleaners so it could be a while b4 the pix. Also, here’s some of my other finds: E Zegna XLT casual shirt. Long sleeve. Tagged XLT....
I also picked up a recent Corneliani. the pants are slimmer than your usual American brand stuff but not overly so. I think you'll do all right. Recent Corneliani is true to US maker size standards IMO, maybe w/ a slimmer cut.
If this thread was on fire b4, it is now a raging inferno. Congratulations.
