 That's Cantarelli. They also own St. Andrews.  RLPL had a stint with them some years ago IIRC, at least I've seen a bunch of older RLPL jackets with the same Cantarelli tags. I think they came right after Chester Barrie, but before St. Andrews. 
Ordered a shirt once, got a tent. 
I recently picked up a 100% Cashmere suit made by Kiton, and I was really blown away by the drape and sheen, it really looks magnificent in person. I'd classify the weight as a four season "plus", it almost looks like a mix between worsted and flannel...Makes my Super 180's Attolini feel cheap!    But on the other hand, I've read that Cashmere is quite the weak fabric. Creases won't hold, pants will become baggy around knees, etc.    I plan to mainly use it for special...

Solid grey fit. mila suit from Ermenegildo Zegna for sale.  Size 48 EU, but could also work as a slim 50. Same size as my Oxxford 1220 suit in US40. Used but in nice condition, real staple piece.  Fit. milano features softer shoulders, slimmer cut, flat front pants. The suit is a bit darker in real life, but not charcoal. Very nice medium grey. Price includes tracked shipping from Norway, delivery time is estimated 10-12 working days. JacketShoulders (seam to seam on...
Tried on some new Canali last fall, brand new models. They had soft shoulders, were really slim, but had jumped on the short-jacket trend and had a pretty high button-stance, no go for me. Mostly due to being very slim.    The Isaia Gregory fit is very slim, I had one in 52, but could have used 54. I'm normally a 50. Roped shoulder on those though, which I really enjoyed.   I actually think a plain Caruso is the option if you're ever looking for a good Drop 7 or 8 suit...
Thanks for the plug, Razl.    I'm not sure who made them, as I understand EZ Couture has been made by Sutor Mantellassi, Tramezza, etc. But I'm not sure who made these though.   edit: These have the 3 nails on each side + front on the sole, so I think they are made by Sutor Mantellassi, at least that's what I've managed to gather from the various threads here on SF.  
Picked these up on Ebay the other day, but I can't even get my feet in these, so off they go. They seem to have been stored without shoe trees, and were shipped to me like that, so there's some creasing, see pictures.  As for use, they seem to have been demo used, or some other indoor use. Def. haven't been taken outside. 250$ shipped (from Norway w/tracking). I don't have original box, trees or shoe bags, sorry. Handmade, either Goodyear or Blake-Rapid construction, I'm...
 From my experience, a decent ballpark figure would be:  Excellent: 5000$ - Sky is the limit Very Good: 3500$ (+/- 500$) Good: 2500$ (+/- 500$)Satisfactory: 1500$ (+/- 500$)Mediocre: 500$ (+ 500$)  As you can see, there's some overlapp going on, and you will have some extreme outliers in each group. But roughly speaking, that's the kind of cash you have to pay on average for a suit in each category, brand new in stores.
Should also add the following:    Lanvin (made by Caruso. I especially like the "15 Faubourg" line)  Prada by Belvest.
