Is the MaCo coat canvassed?
What are the fabric weights like? They all look fairly substantial -- are they?
Neither is a particularly good deal. The St Andrews maybe, since they're difficult to find, but the Cantarelli is still overpriced (check Yoox periodically for much, much better deals). The idea that anyone would sell (or buy) a half-canvassed Cantarelli for $1900 is kind of amazing to me. I don't think there's any risk you're going to get scooped on this, so would you ming sharing which boutique you're talking about? I had no idea there was a place in TO that sold St...
Base S is a very nice cut. I have no idea how anyone could consider it "boxy" -- it has natural, almost unpadded shoulders and nicely cut quarters. Armholes are fairly high, but not extreme. Waist suppression can always be adjusted by your tailor.

I really don't understand the obsession with "current season" labels when it comes to makers like Isaia, Kiton, etc. Surely the point of those brands is that their clothes stand the test of...

Some people have no arms at all, and still have a correct suit length. So I will say, yet again: If a suit jacket does not cover the bottom, it is too short. If it goes substantially beyond, it is too long. THIS. Questions about coat length always generate the worst, most...
