Vestimenta quality

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Can anyone comment on Vestimenta suit quality? Q1. Does Vestimenta make fully canvased suits or 1/4? Q2. Does Vestimenta have soft paddings? Q3. Does Vestimenta make different quality suits depending on models etc? Thanks

(1) Both (2) Sometimes, but not always (3) Yes, and it's impossible to tell without personally examining the suit.

Doesn't Vestimenta make Armani Collezioni suits?

I think so. I also heard they do the Black Label. I've seen horribly stiff, fused Vestimentas. But I've also see light, fully canvassed ones. It's a real hit or miss factory.

I have both a Vestimenta suit (Fatte e Mano) and a casual sport coat (Vestimenta Sport). The sport coat is totally unlined, so no canvas or padding. The suit is fully-cavassed and is cut very much like an Armani. I got it in a wool crepe so it's got that soft look/feel. 3-button, double vent, flat front trou. It seems fairly well constructed. Unfortunately, it's too big for me. It was the last suit I bought before I figured out how a suit should really fit. (thanks in part to the forum.)

I might be wrong but I think Vestimenta only makes the black label stuff. The Collezioni line is outsourced to independent factories.

Zegna makes Armani Collezioni suits.  Vestimenta makes Giorgio Armani.

Hmmm, so I was close. Zegna should explain to me why Armani Collezioni shirts are so much better than Zegna shirts.
