I occasionally see suits from Cifonelli here and there.They seem to have tons of handwork ala Kiton ,Brioni,and Borrelli.(Let's not forget Attolini and Isaia, too)The Cifonelli suits are not quite as high priced-in the high $2000 dollar range.However,I'm wondering where they stand in the heirarchy of fine Italian RTW suits? I know there's also lesser knowns which are pretty nice-Cantarelli,Caraceni,SaintAndrews-all excellent,but not as highly regarded as the big 3 or 4 aforementioned.Why is this? Are consumers too label sensitive and therefore paying more(too much?) for the big names?Or is it lack of availability of the lesser knowns, making them more obscure and therefore not as popular?
