Well they are all fully canvased and made in Italy. I can take a pic of the actual content/model tag if someone wants to ID it (I've seen it before on other things). As per fabrics this is 100% wool (flannel) and it still has a very soft hand that could even fool someone to say 70/30 cashmere. Per construction I'm not the best judge of that; but, I'm sure BF has a bit less handwork than TB.
Man of the other suits this season are all winter weight heavy wools. There are a few seasonless suits (grey herringbone) that is pretty much a similar fabric at $2700 that Thom charges $3800 for. However, that about tops it out as Thom has much finer wools that are up to $5,000.
The hand of the cashmere seems just as soft as Thom's; but, just a slightly different texture due to the different knits. Thom's are also hand framed in Scottland.

Okay THIS is actually what I wore out today to shop around for rings and watches.
