I didn't buy a CT suit, but tried one on.
The thing was cut very similar to my Polo blue labelsuits. The shoulders were not heavily padded, and it was shaped more than, for example, a Brooksease. So I liked the cut. The chestpiece was fused more stiffly than I've felt in a long time. It would stop bullets.
I am no fabric expert. The fabric (woven in england, apparently) was far, far, below your typical green label Lauren suit. It felt really rough or coarse compared with nearly every other cloth I've ever felt. I would compare it with my Paulo Solari (Mens wearhouse 2001) suit. This was not confined to the nevy solid I tried on; it was the same across the board.
The sleeve length was unalterable due to the working buttons. It was pretty close to where I like it, but still too long. This was just plain annoying.
Also, the suits are made in Malta, where the CT cust service assured me they were made in England, like the fabric.
So, if it fits you for the 350 it costs at 50% off, and you want something really solid, then go for it.
I did, however, snare a Polo blue label suit for $308 shipped (retailing for $1095) off Yoox.com just a couple of months ago. I just love it, so CT is out for me.
I do have a couple of their shirts, which at 50% off are a decent value for me, only because their slim fit fits me very well. Construction quality is laughable, easily blown away by the Costco $14.99 jobbies, which are great quality and decent fabric too.
As for the Loakes, I have 3 pair and love em.
