Looked up the definition. That's a good word to know Did not work there. Worked three years with a tailor from their shop who did work there in the 60's to early 70's but worked for him in the US. I know their methods and construction. My comment about being turned away from Caraceni was at the outpost in Rome. 
Shoulders at this stage look straight because they haven't been "worked" What you see now will not be there after the jacket is made.   You can tell a Steed cut by the sleeve seam being visibly forward enough to line up about to the index finger
Two Careceni's in Milan. Ferdinando and A. Caraceni. Ferdinando is run by a Caraceni daughter. The other is run by Carlo and Massimiliano Andreacchio. Carlo is married to another daughter of the original Caraceni.   Wouldn't call A. Caraceni a modern looking suit that this guy is looking for. It has a vintage pedigree much like an Ambrosi trousers.
